Septic tank systems are usually found in rural areas. The reason being that, even today, not all households in the country are connected to a sewerage system. ‘Septic’ means that bacteria develop in the tank of each system, which decompose the waste in an environment that lacks oxygen. If you want to learn more about the functioning of septic systems, you can do so here.

Because sludge accumulates faster than it decomposes, it must be removed regularly, otherwise your system might fail. In order to protect your septic system from failing, there are a number of services and products that I recommend. You can find a list of them here.
