How a septic system works
After flushing a toilet the solids and liquids travel down a plumbing line into the septic tank. The septic tank is a vault, which traps solid waste and allows clear liquid to flow through to the drain field.
Inside the septic tank solids and liquids separate into 3 layers. The top layer is called the scum layer it consists of floatables including: fats, oils, grease, soaps, and phosphates. The middle layer is the liquid layer and the bottom layer is the sludge layer. The sludge layer consists of heavy particles of organic matter which breakdown through an anaerobic process. The clear water exits the tank through an outlet baffle and is dispersed into the drain field which absorbs the water.

CATCH BASINS (ALSO KNOWN AS FRENCH DRAINS, STORM DRAINS, PARKING LOT DRAINS)
Catch basins are concrete boxes or cylinders that trap solid waste and allow water to drain into the ground through a drain line. Parking lot flooding is caused by drains being excluded with solid waste. When the drains fill with sand and debris the storm water cannot enter the drainage portion of the system and permeate into the ground. Catch basins either dump into a perforated drainage line (plastic or stainless steel) or a soakage pit.
Soakage pits are large underground tanks with perforations in the sidewalls or bottoms that allow storm water to drain into the ground. Soakage pits range in size from 1,000 gallons to more than 20,000 gallons. The sidewalls and bottoms are pressure cleaned and the debris is vacuumed out so that the storm water inside the pit can permeate into the ground. The soakage pit acts as a sponge containing storm water during heavy periods of rain and drying out slowly after.
