Septic Installation Types
A conventional septic tank system is the most common of all types of systems. It consists of a main sewer pipe coming from your home to a septic tank, then additional piping coming from your septic tank to the leach field. The first stage of treatment takes place in your septic tank. Inside the tank, your sewage consists of 3 layers—solids, effluent, and scum. The sewage solids sink to the bottom, the effluent or wastewater floats directly above the solids, while the scum is lighter than the wastewater so it floats to the very top and is made up of oils and other liquids which are lighter than water. The scum is where the bacteria that breaks down your waste live. Holding times within the scum layer of your septic tank needs to be around 24 hours before the effluent—the middle layer—flows into your leach field. The effluent then flows into the leach field chambers which have several holes drilled throughout it's length. The effluent then flows out of these holes and is released into a bed of gravel and sand, which treats the effluent further, then is either absorbed by the soil or used as a fertilizer for the surrounding vegetation.

I've recently had my septic tank pumped out and it's needing to be done again. Why do I need another pump out this quickly?
The most common issue of having your septic tank filling up so quickly is the use of harsh chemical cleaners which kill the bacteria that your septic tank relies on to break down the sewage. You can either try to use less-hard, septic tank friendly detergents and add additional bacteria enzymes to all your drains. There are several septic tank treatments on the market today that will enhance bacteria life within your septic tank.
I mow my lawn with a garden tractor. I know it's not a good idea to drive over a leach field, so should I only use my pushmower over that area?
The typical small yard tractor shouldn't do any damage to a leach field as long as it is dry and not wet. Wet soil tends to pack the holes of the drain field chambers, which will prevent effluent from draining out and causing a back up. If it is a large tractor, then you may want to either use a smaller garden tractor for mowing or simply pushmow over the area. It's always best to error on the side of caution when it comes to driving anything over the area of a leach field.
I was going to place a basketball court over the leach field to protect it. Is this a good idea?
Although it will protect your leach field, it is not recommended. The leach field not only drains in the surrounding gravel and sand, but it also relies on evaporation and vegetation using the effluent. If anything other than vegetation is placed over the leach field, it will prevent all of this from happening and slowing the performance of your septic system.
