Septic tanks and leach fields are somewhat of a mystery to most people. Used by millions of American households and millions more in other nations, they provide onsite wastewater treatment. As long as they work properly most of us forget that they are even there, a distinct difference from those on regular central sewer systems who receive monthly "sewer" bills. But when our septic tanks start failing, with pools of stinky water in the yard or drains in the house that no longer work, then we are jerked back to reality...you have to take care of your septic tank or it will quit taking care of you.
