Septic Tank – A septic tank is the main part of a septic system. The septic tank is responsible for the storage and filtration. It has two sections, one section being 2/3 of the tank and the other being 1/3 of the tank. In the first section there is a top layer, a liquid layer and a sediment layer. Active in both sections of the septic tank are billions of natural bacteria that treat the majority of household waste. The bacteria that works in the septic tank takes on the hard work of breaking down solids and sludge. When the wastewater leaves the septic tank and enters the leaching field a different type of bacteria that requires oxygen filtrates and decomposes the waste particles.

Holding Tank – A holding tank is used when a septic system is not possible to use. Holding tanks are typically used on very small lots, environmentally sensitive locations, rocky areas, or in the presence of high water tables. A holding tank is only storage for household waste until it is pumped out. An audible and visual alarm must be installed to indicate the amount of waste in the tank.
