Septic System Remediation

Traditional septic systems Wrentham, Ma. and surrounding areas are anaerobic (no oxygen). They consist of a septic tank, distribution box and a leach field. Septic systems are good for a little more than twenty years and then the onset of leach field failure. Watch the following video to discover how you can greatly increase the life of your septic system. And never have to pump it again.

Replacing a failed septic system or failed leach field is costly. The septic tank and or failed leach field must be excavated. All of the soil and gravel bed are removed from the site of the leach field as it is considered hazardous waste. In order to replace the failed leach field, new piping, gravel, soil and usually a new distribution box replace the old. Man hours for labor and removing (sometimes replacing) any obstacle that may need to come out in order to replace the failed leach field….etc. The expense is enormous. Fortunately, there is an alternative. Some homeowners on septic may not be willing to shell out the funds needed for a new septic system or leach field as the city they live in has plans to bring them public sewer. Or, the home owner may have plans to sell the property and they just want an economic way of selling and still reaping the equity. The first choice some home owners make is to have their leach field jetted. In some cases, this has worked. Or, at least has extended the life of the leach field long enough for the home owner to reach their goal of selling the house. If you are in one of the two categories above, you have the opportunity to get away from a failing leach field. Though, if you know your septic system is failing, the ethical thing to do would be to mention it before closing. Give the next owner a chance to weigh in on the issue. One thing you can do, is to tell the potential home owner about septic system remediation. Maybe even pay for it as a selling point, an upgrade. Technology has given the home owner a cost effective method of renewing the leach field and restoring it completely. That is, to add aerobic bacteria to the septic tank. The traditional septic system utilizes anaerobic bacteria. The anaerobic bacteria produces a slime referred to as bio mat. Over the course of twenty years, bio mat clogs the soil at the leach field, choking off any path for effluent to disperse. With aerobic bacteria, Anchor Sewer and Drain Cleaning Service can reverse the effects anaerobic bacteria has on the soil. 95% of all septic systems utilizing aerobic bacteria have succeeded in completely eliminating bio mat and restoring the leach field for a fraction of the cost to replace it, with little inconvenience to install the system.
