Septic Tank Pumping
On Memorial Day weekend, 2002, we noticed a strong septic odor in the yard. I traced the odor down to the septic tank. After digging up the cover and removing it I soon discovered that the tank was completely full of wastewater. I frantically called in the experts including pumpers, system installer and soil testers. I heard comments like "sorry I can't help you", "we can try jetting the lines", "we can put a new system in that will be much better", "your lucky it lasted this long". Well, after these comments and the $15,000 bid to replace the system, not including the tree removal (another $2,500), landscape restoration (another $2,000) and staircase/deck demolition and rebuild (another $3,500) I decided that there MUST be a better solution! The quest began and the rest is history!
Understanding Your Septic System
If you are like me and the rest of the world, you probably had no idea on how your septic system works. You may have learned from your parents that the system should be pumped regularly, or maybe you learned that they never need pumping! There are many wives tales about putting a dead chicken in the tank every so often, or yeast cakes, "magic" bugs, etc. If you added any one of these remedies, "your septic system would last forever and it would have an infinite life expectancy"! If you're reading this article you now know that these wives tales simply aren't true!
Your septic system is a combination of a mechanical and biological system.
The mechanical portions of modern systems are very durable. Materials like concrete, PVC plastic, fired clay pipe will last a long time under ground. Materials like steel and cast iron and asphalitic pipe are not very common anymore and most of these material have failed and been replaced with newer durable materials.
The biological portion of your systems is generally robust, however it can be upset by abuse such as system overloading and dumping excess materials into the system for which it is not designed to handle such as paint materials, thinners, bleach, anti-bacterial products, and non-organic materials such as wrappers, cigarette butts, etc.
In the perfect world the biological process is 100% efficient. By this time in your life I am sure you have come to realize that we live in a less than perfect world and therefore things in our life crop up that we must deal with! This topic is no ones favorite and you have probably learned more about your septic system in the past few weeks than you wanted.
The problems in our lives usually occur at the least opportune moment. They may be financial, timing or personal grief. Unfortunately we must use the cards we are dealt. In the case of your septic system we must rely on the local "experts". Again, unfortunately, the local [post_name] "experts" may have limited knowledge on subjects beyond their respective profession. The pumpers are great at pumping, the plumbers are great at plumbing and the installers are great at installing. Most likely, none of these contractors fully understand both the mechanical and biological process. Because of this, they attempt to sell you their service or solution, none of which will ultimately solve your septic system problem. Out of frustration, you turn to the internet to begin research on your own. A quick "Google" search leads you to hundreds of web pages that make claims of solving your septic system problem forever. These companies can supply the magic "bugs" or "chemical" that you simply flush down the drain and your problems are solved! If you read on you will fully understand why the aforementioned "solutions" will not resolve your septic system problem.
Frequent Pumping - Many pumpers will gladly pump your system anytime you call them. It can take weeks for the bacteria in a septic tank to re-populate and stabilize. During this period, the wastewater is not being fully treated and very strong wastewater is flowing to the field. The added "food" in this wastewater allows the accelerated growth of the bio-mat.
Conclusion: Frequent pumping can do more harm than good because the wastewater flowing to the field has more "food" in it because the system is not been given adequate time to stabilize. Short term you will get some relief until the tank fills again.
The REAL Solution to Resolving Your Septic System Problems
By now you should understand how your septic system works and why it fails. You should also be able to identify the fact from the fiction coming from the local "expert" or the savvy internet marketing web site that prey on desperate homeowners needs. You will now learn about a little known technology that is scientifically based, has over 100 years of application history, has over a 95% success rate, requires no excavation, requires no chemicals or additives and boasts a 100% money-back guarantee.
This process is called "Aerobic Bio-Remediation". The process, application and the equipment has been developed and introduced by Aero-Stream®, LLC. Additionally, the process has been awarded a U.S. Patent!
The Technology: The aerobic treatment of wastewater has been in use for more than 100 years. Nearly every municipal wastewater treatment plant utilizes aerobic treatment as one of their primary treatment process. This process is robust, fast and efficient at cleaning the wastewater. Aero-Stream® applies this same technology to your current septic system with virtually no significant change to your components or systems. Just as the large municipal wastewater treatment plants do, the aerobic treatment of the wastewater in your septic tank is processesed to reduce the strength of the organic material leaving the tank by some 70% - 80%. Because the food source for the biomat is significantly reduced the biomat begins to starve and die. When the biomat dies, it breaks down and becomes permeable again. In addition to the starvation of the biomat, the oxygen rich laden water with aerobic bacteria flows into the field. The aerobic bacteria also have an appetite for the biomat further reducing the bio-mat.
The Success Rate: The Aero-Stream® process equipment has been installed across the U.S. in nearly every type of system configuration and soil type. The process boasts a 95% success rate! The most common reason for unsuccessful remediation is the lack of adequate time for the remediation to occur. Homeowners in [post_name] want or need their system repaired quickly. Even though the Aero-Stream® process shows significant results in 6 -8 weeks, sometimes that is not fast enough!
The Cost: The Aero-Stream® process and equipment is substantially less expensive than any other proven solution. When comparing the typical Aero-Stream® installation to the lowest cost absorption field replacement, the Aero-Stream® solution is 85% less expensive. When compared to the average cost absorption field, the Aero-Stream® solution is 90% less expensive, and 93% less expensive on a high cost absorption field replacement.
DIY Plumbing Repair - Down the Drain
Many people at one point or another will need the service of a plumber to help fix a leak, install a new fixture, or to replace something in their plumbing system because of damage or use. Most of these repairs and replacements tend to be very affordable, and they are very cost effective because repairing something early on will save money in the long run from having to completely replace something. When it comes time to replace something, you can trust your plumber to offer the best products to use, and trust that the installation will be professional and backed by a full warranty.
Many people fail to schedule regular maintenance on certain aspects of their plumbing system. Regularly servicing and up keeping faucets, pipes, and generally everything dealing with plumbing will help in the long run from having to make major replacements and repairs. Preventative maintenance is always easily forgotten when it comes to up keeping anything in your home. Maintaining your septic system is also very important because once a septic tank backs up, or needs repair work done to it, this can get very expensive, and very messy.
Many people choose to remodel their kitchens, and the bathrooms of their homes at one point or another, which makes it a necessity to use a plumber to install new faucets and fixtures, or to move pipes so that you can change the layout of a sink. Most of this work is done with affordability in mind. Your plumber can recommend many different types of faucets and fixtures that are efficient in running water, and reliable fixtures can be offered to install that hardly ever need to be repaired. All of this work will be done properly by a [post_name] plumber, and will be backed by a warranty of a specific length, depending on the work that was performed.
