Septic Tank: Private Sewage Treatment System Most urban and suburban areas in our country do not have Public Sewage Treatment Plants. It is therefore necessary the sanitary wastes in every building be processed and neutralized by means of a Private Sewage Treatment System and Disposal Unit. The General Scheme of a Private Treatment System is relatively simple, as enumerated below: 1. The sewage is retained in a submerged, tightly enclosed tank; 2. Solid wastes, known as sludge , are diverted to the bottom of the tank; 3. The action of bacteria present in the tank breaks up the solids and aids in purifying the fluids; 4. An amount of sludge builds up at the bottom of the tank while other organic matters, known as scum , floats to the surface. 5. An outlet pipe is provided so that the partially purified effluent (the liquid content of the sewage) will be disposed to a proper point of disposal. The septic tank is the primary purification unit and should be installed close to the surface of the soil, because correction of the effluent depends on oxidation and the presence of aerobic bacteria that is usually found not more than 1500mm below the surface Danilo V.

Septic Tank: Design and Construction Considerations Septic Tank . A water tight receptacle which receives the discharge of a sanitary plumbing system or part thereof, designed and constructed to retain solids, digest organic matter through a period of detention and to allow the liquids to discharge into the soil outside of the tank through a system of open-jointed sub-surface pipings or a seepage pit meeting the requirements of the National Plumbing Code.
