Septic tanks are a common plumbing feature in Illinois, but many homeowners may not understand how they work. Watch the short video for a detailed animation on how septic tanks work.

A septic tank is housed under the ground and is connected to a household’s plumbing; all of the sinks and toilets drain into the tank over the course of several years. Periodically, a septic tank must be cleaned out. However, septic tanks can also flow into the surrounding property to fertilize the soil and contribute to gardening efforts.
