The Secret to a Healthy Septic System

Septic System Additives from Clean Earth Septic
You may not give much thought to your septic system, but when you have a backup, you'll want to know why it happened. We have lots of customers that tell us that they've never had a problem until one night their pump alarm is going off or worse, they have a backup in their basement or bathroom! Fortunately, most septic issues don't happen suddenly, they occur over time so they can be prevented. 

Here are some simple ways to spot a potential backup before it happens:
  • Gurgling sounds when flushing or slow draining of your sinks and showers
  • Septic odor coming from your drainfield of sand mound
  • Noticeable soggy area above your septic tank or drainfield
If you've noticed any of these signs of septic trouble, there's no need to panic, we can help! There are some simple ways to keep your septic system healthy so that you don't have these problems. First, we recommend scheduling a septic tank cleaning every 2-4 years. Second, we recommend a septic system additive like our very own Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant. (That's really just a fancy name for "good bacteria!) Here's how it works:

GOOD Bacteria vs. Anti-Bacterial Products 
Septic tanks safely treat and recycle wastewater through the use of a surprisingly simple system, basically powered by nothing more than gravity, fluid dynamics and bacteria. That's right: good bacteria are essential to the proper functioning of your septic tank by breaking down waste solids. We're accustomed to viewing bacteria in a negative light, as demonstrated by the abundance of disinfectants, sanitizers and anti-bacterial products in every home. Since these products routinely go down the drain in the process of household cleaning and deodorizing, especially in the bathroom, they can have the side effect of killing off the beneficial bacteria your septic tank needs. The failure of "dead" septic tanks is an increasing problem. But septic tank owners don't have to avoid using anti-bacterial products. Adding Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant once a month restores the good worker bacteria and enzymes to counteract the effects of household disinfectants. Waste & Grease makes it easy to maintain a clean and sanitized home environment as well as a healthy bacteria population in your septic tank.

Monthly use of Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant will help reduce surface and bottom solids in the septic tank. Buildup of surface and bottom solids can carry over to the leach field and cause the leach field to become clogged. Once clogged, the system has nowhere to drain and the tank fills up, causing backup in the home and wet areas in the yard.

Use of Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant also restores the biological population of good worker bacteria and enzymes which reduce solids. The beneficial bacteria also get carried over to the leach field to reduce solids and help prevent clogging. A clogged leach field is the biggest problem for septic systems, the hardest and most costly to repair. Ask us about using a septic system additive at your next septic pumping in the Twin Tiers region , or order your one year supply, call us at 607-564-7931.

Here are a few reasons to start using a septic system additive today: 
  1. A septic system additive can help keep your system healthy. If you regularly use anti-bacterial products or flush harsh chemicals down the drain, you may be destroying the “healthy” bacteria needed to break down solids and process waste. An additive contains the right kind of bacteria to help restore balance and keep your tank functioning properly.

  2. Septic additives can help prevent backups. If your septic system has a history of backups or problems, an additive like Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant can help keep things flushing smoothly. By regulating your tank’s bacteria levels, additives break down solids and waste so your tank drains properly and is easy to pump every 3 years.

  3. A septic system additive can extend the life of your septic system. If your system is old or you’re not sure how often it was pumped by previous owners, an additive is a cost efficient part of any routine maintenance plan.

  4. A septic additive can save you money. That’s right – keeping your system healthy with a product like Waste & Grease Eco-Friendly Digestant can save you money on service and repairs. When your system is working as it should a backup is unlikely and you won’t be charged additional fees for heavy solids disposal during your regular pumping.
