Common Septic Tank Installation Questions

There are four main components in a septic tank system.

  • Main Drain:
    This is where all of the different pipes in your house lead to. All of your home’s wastewater will flow through the main drain into the septic tank.
  • Septic Tank:
    Depending on local building ordinances, the tank will be located several feet away from your home. There will be a cap for pumping and inspection access. The wastewater will collect in the tank, letting the solids settle on the bottom. The water on top will then be distributed into the drain field.
  • Drainfield:
    Sometimes referred to as a leach field, it will be in a large area of your yard. It’s a specifically designed system of various materials that will distribute the wastewater slowly into the soil.
  • Soil:
    The soil beneath the drain field will remove the contaminants from the wastewater. The water will eventually be purified before it reaches the groundwater.

The longevity of a septic tank system depends on what the tank is made of and the specifics of the soil in the drain field. Tanks made of steel last only 15 to 20 years. You’ll get a longer life out of a concrete or plastic tank, as they can last for 40 years or longer.

The size of the tank will depend on the size of your home and how many bedrooms it has or the designed flow derived by the Local Health Department. Most septic tanks will hold at least 750 gallons.

The most common size is around 1000 gallons but can be as large as 1250 gallons or more depending on Health Department requirements. The most important thing is to have a tank that will support the home’s actual water usage.
