If you don’t know just how much important the job of a septic pumping contractor is, you’re probably living in the city where you have access to the city’s sewer treatment system that’s available to the public. But for people with no access to such a system, removing waste water safely from their homes will need the help of a septic tank. This way, they can remove the dangerous bacteria from the wastewater and distribute it to a septic field under the ground.
The septic tank’s purpose is to isolate the solid waste from the wastewater that goes into it. This solid sewage then settles as sludge on the bottom of the tank. The light waste of grease and oil floats as a scum layer on the top.

The water that gets left in the middle contains phosphorus and nitrogen that can be used as fertilizer.
