- Your reservoir divides the wastewater that enters it into three layers.
- Scum (toilet paper, oil, grease ) floats to the top.
- Sludge (waste, detergent) sinks to the bottom.
- Effluent (liquid) stays in the middle.
Around half of the solids get broken down by germs in the reservoir and the effluent carry on to the leach field. The remainder of the stuff in the tank has to be pumped out routinely or it can trigger concerns, such as clogging the leach field and backing up the system.
