Septic Systems

A septic system system not being over used has time for bacteria to digest the solids entering the tank. This septic tank belongs to the home of one resident. She rarely uses bleach. This home owner refuses to use cleaning products that are not 'septic safe'. Nothing but biodegradable material enters the tank. The age of the system is more than 40 years old. However, it is still easy to see the signs of hydraulic sulfide gases. Notice the bubbles on the surface of the effluent.

This is what Title V (Septic System and Ground Treated Water Regulations) inspectors are looking for. There is only one thing left for this person to do for a perfectly maintained septic system to reach maximum years of use. Convert to Aerobic Bacteria.
