Input Baffle

Where sewage enters from house

Output Baffle

Wastewater goes to drainfield

Sludge Layer

also referred to as the solids layer contains all the solid material that is not supposed to leave the tank or enter any other system components. This is the material that needs to be pumped out on a regular basis.

Inspection Pipe

When pumping two-compartment septic tanks, both sides should be pumped to allow for a complete visual inspection of the tank and baffles.


The scum layer contains the grease, fat, and other non-water soluble materials that go down the drains and toilets.


The wastewater layer, also known as the effluent layer, contains the treated water that has cleared and can safely leave the septic tank to the next step in the septic system.

First Compartment

This is where sewage is processed. Only the clear effluent or wastewater layer should leave and go into the second compartment.

Second Compartment

This compartment contains the effluent filter which helps ensure no solids leave the tank and enter the dosing tank. Once clear effluent or wastewater enters this compartment, it will then go out into the next system component.

Air Space

Septic tanks are designed to leave some room at the top in case of a blockage or in the event a large amount of effluent water comes into the tank. It prevents backing up out of the tank lids or into the home. .

Septic Services Excellence

At Speedy Septic, we ensure we are consistently delivering our high standard of courteous, quick, and reliable septic service. Everything we do is guided by these three core values:

  • Speed: when your toilet won’t flush or drains won’t drain, every minute counts. Speedy Septic has the largest fleet of trucks in Oregon and offers service 24/7.
  • Integrity: Some companies conceal charges until it’s too late to do anything. With Speedy Septic, we will never perform any additional work until you see and approve the estimate. And with us, you only pay for what we pump– and many of our trucks have advanced measuring equipment to determine the precise gallon extraction.
  • Quality: Our technicians receive continuing education, making them master troubleshooters with the expertise you can trust. They’re often called in to solve problems other companies couldn’t handle. Save time, money and hassle by calling Speedy Septic first.
