A septic system is designed to safely treat and dispose of household waste from the kitchen and bathroom(s). If your system is sized to handle a dishwasher or clothes washer in addition to sinks and toilets, it can handle a disposer as well.
Wastewater flows into your septic tank, where solids that are lighter than water (such as grease, oils and paper) float to the top and form a layer of scum. Solids that are heavier than water float to the bottom and form a layer of sludge. The middle layer of partially clarified water flows through a distribution box that evenly disperses it into your drain field. Gravel and soil then filter out pollutants and bacteria.
Naturally-occurring bacteria in your septic tank help to decompose solid matter but can’t take care of it all. That’s why periodically, sludge must be pumped from your tank to keep solid overflow from contaminating your drain field. When you choose an In-Sink-Erator® Septic Disposer, Bio-Charge® treatment is added to your system with every use. These microorganisms digest both food and household waste inside your septic tank — helping to reduce the accumulation of solids.
Hint for disposer use: Continue to run water for 30 – 60 seconds after disposer is turned off to ensure that all debris has washed out of the drain line. Remember the food waste has to be washed quite a distance to get to the main sewer line and turning off the water too soon can cause premature backups.
