Septic Systems

How It Works

Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures made of fiberglass, plastic or concrete. They use a combination of biological decomposition and technology to treat the wastewater from your bathrooms, kitchens, drains and all other household plumbing. A typical system will consist of a septic tank and a drainfield. They are designed to separate floatable matter and solids from the wastewater, which will then slowly release the effluent into the soil.

When it comes time to clean or pump your septic system, it’s best to hire a professional. With years of expertise, Herb Shaw Sanitation Services can handle all of your septic care needs.
