How to Hook a Holding Tank Trailer Up to a Septic System
Homeowners install septic tank systems when hookup to a city sewage system is not available. A septic tank holds all of the household waste, both liquid and solid. Over time, the liquid portion drains from the tank into a leech field, an area of the yard containing ideal soil conditions for water drainage. The solid waste collects at the bottom of the tank and slowly breaks down. However, the solid waste or sludge never completely decomposes and must periodically be pumped out of the septic tank. Removal of sewage from a septic tank requires a specialized holding tank trailer and a professional licensed for hazardous waste removal.
