A standard septic system processes many thousands of gallons of water per month (look at your water bill). Your tank is 1,000-1,500 Gallons. The size if the tank is determined by the number of bedrooms and if there is a garbage disposal.
Where does all the water go? Your tank separates the solid waste from the liquids (urine, shower water, etc) and sends the liquids to the drain field.
The drain field soaks liquids into the soil for dispersal, where natural bacteria consumes any remaining waste, and clean water goes further down into the soil.
The State of Georgia recommends having your septic tank pumped out and cleaned every 3-5 years. Staying on top of the maintenance of your septic tank is just as important as changing the oil in your vehicle. Although it is very common for a septic system to be used for an extensive amount of time, it will go that much further with proper maintenance.

"Our Lift Station failed, which we noticed by the alarm. It was almost completely full, and within another couple days, it would have been backing sewage up into our building. AWS came out and immediately pumped it down, replaced the control board that had failed, and was very clean and professional. Very happy!"
