In 1992, installation of the baffle made a great improvement at keeping the sludge away from the outlet therefore the stirring affect has been kept to a minimum. This does not mean sludge cannot find its way to the outlet. Only regular septic tank pumpouts help prevent sludge from getting into the drainfield.
HOW A SEPTIC TANK WORKS
As you know each time you turn on a faucet, flush a toilet, or do a load of laundry, the water and waste travels out of the house and into the septic tank. Some of the waste sinks to the bottom and some of it floats. As more water goes into the septic tank, an equal amount gets pushed out to the drainfield.
From the first septic tanks until 1992 there was no real baffle installed in the tank to hold back the sludge from getting close to the outlet end of the tank. On these old style tanks when the water enters the tank, it stirs up the sludge and can push it out into the drainfield blocking the flow of water entering the drainfield lines.
