Home septic tanks require regular maintenance and pumping.
When it comes to storing and processing waste on a Waxhaw, North Carolina property, there are two main options. The first is connecting the property to the municipal sewer line and relying on the governmental agency to process the waste that comes through your drains. The second is relying on a septic system, which is a self-contained waste storage and processing system placed on the property. The location of your property is a significant factor in which option is available to you, and many people in the area live in rural, less developed areas. When you’re not close enough to the municipal sewer line, you must use a septic system.
A key part of a residential septic system is the septic tank. Home septic tanks are large concrete boxes that are buried underground and connected to the drains within the house. When you flush a toilet or rinse something down the drain in your home, the liquid and solid waste move into the tank. Solid waste forms layers in home septic tanks, while liquid waste is treated and moves to the top of the tank, where it can exit through the drain field.
