    If your septic tank is working properly the solid material will become liquefied by the bacteria and that liquid will flow through the drain pipes into the drain field where the grass will use it up.

    No It is to be pumped out every year & the grease pit cleaned. The sludge goes out to the rice fields the grease to the candle factory.

    no, it does not. most will be liquidified and sent to the drain field but the remainder have to be pumped out every few years and disposed of

    No. Microbial action in the tank breaks the material down into its components and allows the liquid to drain away in the leach field. Nothing "disappears," it only changes form.

    That is a qualified yes. The problem is how well the system is designed and operated. Also feces can contain some inert material that can not be digested by the bacteria in the septic tank.

    No. Thats why you have to have it pumped out, a process engagingly known as FSM (Fecal Sludge Management) rather than shitpumping.
