A septic tank consists of a two or three chamber system that retains sewage from the connected property giving solids sufficient time to form sludge at the base of the tank, this is partially broken down through anaerobic digestion. Any remaining liquid in the tank overflows from the tank by means of an outlet pipe to a drainage channel.
