You can think of your septic tank as a sophisticated underground sewage treatment plant. Everything you flush or wash down the drain ends up in your tank by way of an inlet pipe. What you might be surprised to learn is that your tank is always full. As waste enters the tank, effluent flows into your weeping field. The more time your tank has to break down the solids—referred to as retention time—the better. When water usage is excessive, the retention time will be reduced, allowing effluent to flow into your weeping field.
