North Texas Septic
This is the most common type of septic system that people are familiar with (hence, Conventional). Conventional Septic Systems are identified by names like: Conventional, Overflow, and Leach Field System.
A standard “conventional” septic tank system is a gravity fed septic system containing three main parts; the septic tank, drainfield and soil.
- The Septic Tank – the purpose is to separate solids from wastewater. It also stores and partially decomposes as much solid’s as it can allow the effluent (liquids) to pass through to the drainfield.
- The Drainfield – is where effluent is discharged and known as an absorption or leach field. It is a network of pipes laid in trenches or beds.
- The Soil – provides final treatment and disposal of effluent in the septic tank. After the wastewater (effluent) has passed into the soil, organisms in the soil treat the effluent before it enters ground or surface water. The type of soil used in a septic system impacts the effectiveness of the drainfield
