FLOW BUFFERING

FLOW BUFFERING

The septic tank also provides a buffering of flows between the house and the drainfield. Large surges from the household, such as toilet flush­ing or washing machine drainage, are dampered by the septic tank so that the flows leaving the tank and entering the drainfield are at substan­tially lower flow rates and extend over a longer period of time than the incoming surges.
