What is a Septic System?

A septic system is a method of disposing household wastewater in areas where public sewers are not available. The standard type of septic system involves a septic tank, and a system of pipes that distribute the remaining liquid waste underground over a large area (leach Field) where the wastewater percolates through the soil, which helps to clean the water.
