Your septic tank is responsible for taking in all the waste water from your home. It then separates the solid waste, which settles on the bottom of the tank, and the lighter solid waste floats on the top. The water that ends up in the middle is carefully filtered out to the drain field and processed into the soil.
Over time, the solid in the tank build up. If it isn’t pumped out, the waste will end up going somewhere. Whether that is backing up into your home or forced out into the drain field, or both. Either way the repair cost can be significant.
