The purpose of a septic tank is to collect all waste water coming from the household.  Solids settle in the bottom of the tank, while scum and grease rise to the top.  Between the two areas of solid waste is liquid, which is allowed to pass through the baffles (pipes) into the absorption area. Clogging can only be prevented by regular cleaning.
