Sewerage Tank

A sewerage tank, also known as a septic tank, is a large underground container that is used for the treatment of household wastewater. It is typically made of concrete, plastic, or fiberglass, and is designed to allow the separation of solid and liquid waste.

Household wastewater enters the sewerage tank from a main pipe and is allowed to settle inside the tank. Solid waste sinks to the bottom of the tank and is broken down by bacteria, while liquid waste flows out of the tank through a series of pipes and into a drainage field, where it is absorbed into the surrounding soil.

Sewerage tanks are typically used in areas where a connection to a municipal sewer system is not available, and are commonly found in rural areas or properties that are located far away from the nearest sewage treatment plant. They are also used in some commercial and industrial settings where large quantities of wastewater need to be treated.

Regular maintenance of a sewerage tank is important to ensure that it functions properly and does not become clogged or overflow. This may include periodic pumping of the tank to remove accumulated solids, and regular inspections to check for cracks, leaks, or other signs of damage.
