Do you know how your septic tank works?
There are many different system designs, but septic systems generally function similarly. Your septic tank is designed to allow bacteria and enzymes to biodegrade waste. The process converts organic waste into water, carbon dioxide and small amounts of mineral matter. Solids will sink while soap and grease floats in the tank. A drain field is designed to let only clean water leave the tank through lateral pipes into sand or gravel, which acts as a final filter before the water enters the ground.
Unfortunately, chemicals, detergents, bowl cleaners, bleaches, anti-bacterial soaps, and food preservatives inhibit natural bacterial action within the septic tank and sewer system. This causes solids to accumulate in the septic system, which can flow out of the drain field and clog pipes.
