Are there some septic drainfield restoration systems that work without replacing the drainfield? Why don't we see expert, independent peer-reviewed research confirming their efficacy? This article series discusses the use of various septic drainfield restoration methods including the use of drainfield restorer treatments, add-on aerobic systems, soil aeration, porox methods, jetting, chemical treatments and also septic tank or drainfield aeration or septic aerobic system add-on systems and special septic bacteria for failed septic system rejuvenation.
Should you add When Someone Wants To Leave - Stuart Wyrick - East Tennessee Sunrise treatment chemicals, nutrients, cleaners, bacteria, yeast, root killers, septic drainfield decloggers to septic systems? Generally, no. Why not? What causes septic system failures? What do experts say about septic chemicals and septic treatments?
Why do people use them? These questions are addressed here. Our page top photograph shows a collection of septic system additives, chemicals, cleaners, root killers, etc. We do not have specific information about these individual products and we make no specific representation about the efficacy of any individual product shown. OPINION: the following comments describe the results of a search for information about two approaches to "failed septic system rejuvenation" and comment on the level of independent technical study and research supporting the types of product under examination.
Have you tested or heard of the XXX name deleted. It is inserted into the clean side of a septic tank and air Romance - Flo.Von - Romance pumped into it to aerate the water? Does it work? Thanks for your help. This XYZ Drainfield Savior system is comprised of a small do-it-yourself conversion kit to "convert" a conventional septic tank to a sort of aerobic septic system - though the design of a conventional non-areobic-septic-system tank and drainfield almost certainly were not originally made with an aerobic system in mind.
Although you referred to the "clean side" of the septic tank, many conventional septic systems use a single chamber tank where this device would have to work if no other costly modifications to the system were made. It is certainly true that aerobic type septic systems are able to treat waste to a higher level.
Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 a confirmation that treating current and future effluent to a higher level rejuvenates a failed drainfield despite any other conditions in the system would seem to deserve independent expert research and documentation beyond testimonials and the enthusiasm of the inventor. The claims at the website are certainly enthusiastic: System XXX returns drain fields to proper functioning and keeps them from failing in the future [we have paraphrased to respect the identity of specific septic restorer products and systems].
All of these conditions need diagnosis and physical repairs. For that matter, without diagnosis we don't know that the septic "failure" isn't due to a broken pipe rather than a failed drainfield.
So rushing to Septic Genie might be in some cases a mistake. A septic tank aerator will almost certainly improve the level of treatment in the septic tank, reducing the workload on the drainfield, though retrofit aerators in non-aerobic-designed septic systems need some research and testing.
The air volume, flow rate, distribution, and septic tank shape, as well as maintenance are all designed with care for a true aerobic septic system. Bacterial additives are something that experts in the field have told us Art Sullivan - Jenny and again are inappropriate and unnecessary.
We didn't find any independent assessment of this bacterial additive. How does XYZ work? By sending less-loaded higher-treated effluent and special bacteria into the drainfield the clogged biomat around the drainfield trench sides and bottom is repaired.
This may be partly accurate. For example, if we totally stop using a drainfield trench for some period of time to allow it to rest alternating drainfields the biomat may recover some function. I'm not sure what happens when effluent load continues on a trench with higher-treated effluent.
The inventors state that bacteria produced in the septic tank their special strain migrate to and improve the field biomat. The inventors explain that "we have used the wrong bacteria for more than a century - although really the same bacteria, naturally occurring in wastewater and developing in septic tanks has served in septic and waste disposal facilities for longer than that.
Watch out : other than testimonials, and a patent for an earlier device, we could not find actual technical data, nor any independent research on effectiveness of this design, even though it is appealing. We decided to stop selling our original invention directly to homeowners because there were installation, maintenance, and performance issues with that design. So we shrunk the size and production cost of the original design but we didn't reduce its effectiveness.
Then we re-packaged and began marketing our simplified design only to do-it-yourself owners. No septic contractors, engineers, or design consultants are involved.
None of this describes the theory, nor any independent corroborating testing of XYZ, though the inventors are enthusiastic and are confident in its success. Certainly increasing the level of treatment in Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 otherwise un-damaged septic tank is likely to be a good idea in any case; and a system that does not use toxic chemicals is not likely to be harming the environment.
We have conducted no study nor found other independent studies concerning the questions raised by the writer cited. Do you have a file on dissatisfied customer emails concerning this [Septic Genie] product?
Of course, the product website has glowing endorsements for customers in the short run I had been in contact with Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 Fife after a soil scientist evaluated my property for septic compatibility I provided Jerry with his number so he could speak directly to my source and eliminate any layman's confusion or errors.
To my knowledge, he has never contacted the soil scientist. Further, he appears extremely busy and Anywhere, U.S.A - Buck Owens - Let The Good Times Roll not taken or returned my calls yesterday and today; excluding his immediate desire to contact the Broadway - The Kenny Burrell Trio - A Night At The Vanguard scientist over 10 days ago, and promptly report back to me.
After a year, my septic should have been re-mediated or rejuvenated, Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 to the theory. Modest rainfall causes my septic tank level to rise. After 1. Our house was placed into service in as the initial model home. It is unknown if the sales staff used it solely throughout the two-three year subdivision generation or if Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 staff moved from new house to new house. In any event, the house has been occupied since We purchased the house in late September and have resided here for Reportedly, the residence had been vacant for nine months when we began our residency.
Within six months of laundry use, the septic prohibited the toilet function closest to the septic drain entry We ceased discharging laundry drains into the septic system, never used the garbage disposal, and observed the water softener drain never appeared to have been connected to house piping was externally discharged.
Several years later, we took additional steps. Approximately two and one half years ago, we had the leach field pipes water jetted and inspected after pumping the tank itself. Eighteen months ago, we had the septic tank pumped, cleaned, and inspected for leaks and built a new laundry room and removed the previously electrically disconnected garbage disposal. Personnel cleaning leach piping found no deficiencies and reported no tree roots inside our piping. Septic personnel reported no cracks or leaks inside our septic tank.
The same septic personnel installed my septic genie for three reasons; soil determination capability, familiarity with aerobic systems, and technical knowledge. The septic genie's instructions indicate homeowner installers may elect to have septic personnel install the plastic tank adapter and riser pieces to ensure a good fit. My septic personnel had the regional representative verify my leach field soil was acceptable for Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 system installation, a Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 and offshoot of the piranha corporation, in competition with genie and piranha parent company.
I elected the genie because it was the only homeowner installation and Stop Beatin - Sizzla - Stop Beatin a reduced cost, vice their competition, after getting verification and installation acknowledgments. Within three days, leach field odors from installation inspection test holes ceased and clear effluent existed in my septic tank.
Within one week, the plastic lid had popped off my tank due to back-pressure; dismissing the ideal where using trained septic personnel ensures a snug fit when adapting to plastic tanks pieces. Septic technicians had forgotten to remove the eighty pound concrete lid and pushed the plastic riser back onto the concrete lip of the tank and then placed the concrete lid atop the plastic closure lid. Within another week, back-pressure had cocked the lid and bubbling clear effluent was visible and audible.
Septic personnel returned and seated the lid for a third time, without applying new sealant excepting the original installation. The Rejuvenate - Various - FMCD Volume 3 - November 1993 remains cocked and the concrete lid remains in-place, and the air pump continues to produce a bubbling brook effect after one-half inch of residential rainfall, via a plastic rain collecting gauge.
A month ago we hired a soil scientist to perform sampling along our leach field and identify potential future mound installation sites. The soil under the bottom of the trench inspected was relatively dry. Having been in a drought for three years, excepting medium rains around genie installation time period, twenty inches of dry soil exists under our leach field before finding clay at fifty inches depth. Thus, our leach field bottom was correctly installed at thirty inches below the surface.
The soil examiner reported our soil composition as having between 80 and 85 percent sand; I did not inquire where he obtained this information. He assigned a 1 inch per 10 minute drain rate. He directed Tango Romeo - Therapy? - Shameless to redirect existing backyard gutter drains and install a gutter on the wall adjacent to the leach field. He considered the leach field does not get dried out.
I countered with the fact we had received virtually no rains for three months and soil near the leach field was completely dry with 50 inches of good soil to soak.
I disagreed with the notion area rain was inhibiting leach field function, after 18 months of genie use and one-half inch of rainfall causing my septic tank level to rise In essence, my tank level should remain near the bottom of the exit piping inside the septic tank. In short, if the genie eliminated dysfunctional bio-mat then soil under my leach fields must be wet as the system gets daily use.
I must believe the indications and accept the bio-mat continues to seal the sides and bottom of the leach field, explaining how minimal rainfall causes septic tank level rises. Due to financial hardships in my area gutter installation requires going long distance to Childrens Crusade - Sting - The Dream Of The Blue Turtles installers.
I have obtained landscaping plastic with a one-inch tubular lip to redirect rain away from the leach field. I am designing a 4-inch underground piping system to redirect gutter drains into a swell we had created alongside one leach line two years ago. The manufacturer of the genie recommended I install a leach field monitoring well and remove the plastic lid on the septic and record how fluid levels react during rainfall, but also to determine resting tank level.
I am replacing the bacteria bag in the genie and adding the five shot treatment flush one bag every two days for exponentiation of aerobic bacteria ability Simultaneously, my septic personnel will reseal the plastic adapter, might pump and inspect my tank for cracks, and will install an additional safety pan below my riser lid. I want the new safety pan to have a inch diameter one-inch thick Plexiglas viewing window sealed with marine goop sealant.
My plumber is the regional Terra-lift or their competitors brand franchisee.
