How does a septic tank work?


The step by step process

  1. Waste water from the household kitchen, laundry, bathroom and toilet systems are directed to one common drainage pipe.
  2. The drainage pipe leads to an All-waste Holding Tank where naturally occurring bacteria starts the treatment process by breaking down settled solids through anaerobic digestion.
  3. The liquid waste water is then passed through to the Sand Filter where there is a number of layers of rock and natural sands which filtrate and purify the water to a very good quality.
  4. This water enters the Pump Well.
  5. The treated effluent is then automatically pumped to the designated irrigation area.
