The diagram below illustrates the journey that water takes through a typical septic system. When water leaves the home through the plumbing, it flows directly into the septic tank, where the primary treatment or solid settling takes place. The wastewater (effluent) is then distributed into the leaching field, where the effluent will seep into the ground and become fully treated, and eventually become groundwater again.

The diagram below illustrates what the inside of a properly functioning, full septic tank should look like. All wastewater enters the tank through the Inlet, and the solids begin to settle out. Lighter solids float to the top, creating the scum layer, while heavier solids sink to the bottom, creating the sludge layer. The middle layer consists mainly of wastewater, which is called effluent. The effluent flows out of the tank through the Outlet and into the distribution box, where it is eventually dispersed into the leaching field. Within the septic tank, the inlet and outlet pipes are fitted with a "T." The inlet "T's" function is to send the incoming wastewater into the middle of the tank, allowing the incoming water to slow down in speed, the floatables to become the scum layer, and the heavier particals to become the solids layer. The outlet "T's" function is to hold the scum and solids layers within the septic tank and allow only the effluent to flow out of the tank to the leaching system.
