The most common sewage disposal system widely used today is the septic tank along with a drain field or leach field. If the soil surrounding your Northern Virginia home is suitable, a septic system can usually be installed and will provide many years of hands off sewage disposal.
The typical septic tank-drain field system is comprised of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drain or leach field. Septic tanks are typically constructed out of concrete, fiberglass or plastic and are designed to be watertight with a riser protruding to the surface to allow for periodic pump-outs. Yearly inspection and regular maintenance of a septic system is pertinent to avoid costly repairs and prevent upcoming problems from accelerating.
