Liquid Effluent

Effluent is the liquid wastwater that forms in the central part of your septic tank.

The baffle on your septic tank outlet should only allow effluent to move from your septic tank to your absorption field.  The sludge and scum layers should be left behind and be pumped out every 3-5 years.
