Many homeowners take their septic system for granted. If the commode flushes and the bath water drains, then they believe that they have no septic tank problems. When the telltale signs of septic issues appear, such as the commode backing up or sewage backup in the drains, then the homeowner will come to the abrupt realization that their septic system has failed. The immediate response to this unpleasant experience is to have the holding tank pumped to remove the solid wastes. The reality is that this is only a stop-gap measure and not a solution.
Most waste removal systems are anaerobic and therefore are bound to fail within 15 years. Anaerobic means that it is an environment without oxygen. This type of septic system produces the growth of a large amount of sludge. This layer of sludge, called a biomat, will eventually clog the septic drain field and cause system failure. Many septic repair companies will gladly offer to dig a new drain field or leach bed for an enormous amount of money.
The good news is that septic failure can be reversed without removal of the old system or digging up the yard. The Aero-Stream Company has designed an aerobic system to restore and maintain failed residential and commercial septic systems. The patented process will convert a non-oxygenating system into an oxygen rich environment where aerobic bacteria will thrive and consume up to 30 times more organic waste material than anaerobic bacteria. This will result in the reduction in size of the biomat that originally clogged the drain field. The aerobic bacteria efficiently breaks down the organic waste so that the wastewater leaving the septic tank is cleaner and contains less sludge. The cleaner wastewater reduces the biomat’s food source. As the biomat shrinks from lack of a food source, the drain field once again is restored so that it can absorb and disperse water.
Aero-Stream’s Septic Remediation System is a fraction of the cost of replacing a septic system or drainage bed. Using an aerobic septic system will also keep the drain field clear of biomat buildup and alleviate the need for future drainage field installations. The patented Aero-Stream Septic Remediation System does not require excavation or the use of harmful chemicals. The cost of maintaining the system is reduced due to the fact that the system does not have to be pumped as often when a tank aeration system is installed.
In the past, the only solution for a failed septic system was to remove the old system and/or replace the drainage fields. A septic tank aeration system is a much more cost effective and efficient solution for homeowners and commercial property owners. Simple pumping will not solve the problem of sludge buildup. By installing a Septic Remediation System now, it can start to work to repair and maintain previous septic tank problems caused by a non-oxygenating septic system.
