If you are located on a remote property or an unsewered development, or if you are living in an older home, you may be using a septic tank system for your liquid waste disposal needs.
Septic systems are necessary for areas that don't have access to the local sewerage system as they ensure efficient and safe wastewater disposal. Failing to maintain a septic system can result in a variety of health issues, plumbing problems and costly fixes. This is why it's important to regularly utilise a regular professional septic tank and wastewater system cleaning service like Tunnel Vision.

What Is a Septic Tank System?
A septic tank is an underground sewage storage system commonly used for households that can’t access the local sewer system.
Septic systems are most often made up of one or two tanks, as well as a set of drainage receptacles called soakwells or leach drains. The septic tanks are separated into two sections, allowing wastewater to pass into the leach drains while keeping solid waste in the tank.
If you’re curious about how septic systems work, the process is fairly straightforward. Wastewater from the home’s laundry, bathrooms and kitchen leaves the home via a series of drainage pipes and is deposited in the septic tank nearby.
In septic tanks, all solid waste sinks to the bottom and is broken down with help from the wastewater – the liquid sewage – and healthy bacteria. This layer of sewage is known as sludge. Any grease waste, oil or similar materials float to the surface of the wastewater and form a layer of scum, which helps trap air to assist in the breakdown process.
Once free from sludge and scum, the wastewater is able to pass through a series of pipes where it is disposed of via the leach drains. Since accumulated sludge and scum can’t pass through leach drains, it is important to periodically remove build-up from septic tanks to ensure that the septic system and treatment processes work safely and efficiently.
