Septic tank aerator
In the past, septic tanks weren’t called VERY useful although they take care of wastewater coming out of your toilet.
Many people will tell you to avoid having septic tanks because they also think they bring problems to the property, which is quite wrong. If you maintain it properly, there’s no reason for a septic tank to bring problems to your property.
What I’m trying to say is, if you need it or want to install one, don’t be afraid of it. Besides, many things nowadays allow septic systems to work better than a few years ago. For example, a septic tank aerator could be a good addition if you have an old one or if you are planning to install one.
Before I explain it you what an aerator is, you need to know that, in a septic system, there are two types of bacteria that process waste, one is aerobic and the other one anaerobic. The anaerobic bacteria is what you will find in a septic tank most of the time since the aerobic needs oxygen, but they are more effective than anaerobic bacteria.
Now that you know this, an aerator helps your septic tank to process the wastewater faster and more effectively since it pumps air or oxygen to the tank. I told you before that anaerobic bacteria need oxygen, which is exactly what an aerator adds to the septic tank. This means it will work even 20 times better since the presence of aerobic bacteria will flourish.
This aerator will help your septic system without affecting the environment and you will notice a huge difference since the wastewater will be processed faster.
If you decide to add an aerator, make sure it is the right one for your tank. Therefore, ask a professional who can advise you and even install it when you acquire it. Not every aerator works with every single tank, and there exist many types of them and of course, some are more expensive than others are.
