Resolve Septic Tank Problems
The standard for residential wastewater treatment in areas where a centralized processing plant is not feasible depends primarily on anaerobic septic systems to process residential wastewater. Although this method of processing helps with cleaning contaminated water, it is inefficient and can lead to groundwater contamination or septic soil from the byproducts of the process. In a finite period of time you will have problems with the septic tank and the drain field.
Anaerobic wastewater treatment only removes 30 to 40 percent of the organic material in the septic tank. This means that further breakdown must occur after leaving the tank. The anaerobic process produces a rotten egg type because of the by product of bacterial waste. Until recent years, an aerobic septic system has been used only in commercial wastewater treatment. Advances have been made that have brought this process to the residential front. Aerobic systems are cleaner and more efficient producing a 90 to 98 percent clean rate after processing. Because of the superior process capability of aerobic bacteria, septic tank problems will be minimized.
Biomat is a black sludge type growth that blankets drain fields and can lead to septic problems such as overflows and sluggish drains. Eventually this biomat build-up leads to the inability of a drainfield to absorb discharges from the septic system. Septic System Saver® has developed a method of converting inefficient anaerobic systems to a workable aerobic system.
The addition of oxygen to the process speeds up the breakdown of nutrients of the effluent. With these impurities removed in the tank, the biomat is not fed and cannot grow. The recession of the biomat re-energizes drain fields and clears up appearance and unwanted emitting odors. Within a few short weeks the biomat has died and the soil is now free to receive the little bit of discharge that still requires cleaning. This is accomplished with no additional landscaping required.
Advantages of incorporating an aerobic system are financial savings by reducing drain field size or extending the life or usability of the area. Sites can be developed that would not necessarily support a traditional septic system freeing land for other development needs. There are some areas that do not allow the use of aerobic systems for residential wastewater treatment. For these areas especially, the remediation process is an effective way to improve wastewater treatment. Incorporating aerobic treatment to septic systems extends the life of the overall system. When maintained properly there is virtually no end date to the effectiveness of this treatment process.
Aerobic septic system installation and use can help to improve the values of a house, it will improve the appearance of the surrounding land used for drainage, and helps with environmental restoration by eliminating groundwater contamination. It is a viable option to improving the quality of wastewater treatment at a minimal cost. Among the options that are available, this is definitely worth serious consideration.
