In Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service replaced a deteriorated outlet baffle with a PVC sanitary tee. See the before-and-after photos attached.
Septic tanks should have an inlet and outlet baffle at the inlet and outlet ends. Both should be checked during a septic inspection and/or service.
The inlet baffle directs flow from the house sewer down to the septic tank, detains the sewage and allows the solids to settle. This creates the sludge on the bottom of the tank. The inlet baffle also keeps the scum from plugging up the inlet pipe.
The outlet baffle prevents floating scum and sewage from exiting the septic tank and entering and clogging the drainfield. Many times, an effluent screen is added at the outlet baffle to also keep the scum and sludge from leaving the tank.
Baffles must be properly installed and connected so they are accessible for inspection, repair and replacement. Effluent screens should be properly cleaned as well.
