How to Maintain your Septic System Safely



but Neath this beautiful lawn next to this cozy home something serious may be brewing for underneath the greenery lives a septic system sometimes things can go wrong within a year of us moving in here I was here at the sink turned on the faucet just normal and I hear a sound coming from the tub so I shut the thing off and it stopped turn the sink water back on and again I hear something coming from his hub so I come over and I look and there's actually water coming up from the tub it wasn't clear water it was brown water and all this smell it was so awful so I didn't know what to do I didn't know what that was so what else to do but call my husband so when we were buying the house it was listed at city sewer but when we were walking around outside and I noticed the clean-out there and a clean-out there I knew that it was actually a septic system and that's a good thing because when we had our backup I knew exactly what to do I checked the clean-out they were all full so I knew I had to come and find the lid being in the construction business I knew what to do and I could absorb some of the cost myself for the regular homeowner it's a lot of money a septic system is like a mini underground sewage treatment facility on your property all plumbing leads to a watertight tank where beneficial bacteria break down the waste product the waste is then dispersed into a drain field by pipes to prevent possible future problems Debbie and Monte were introduced to Dan Cohen from eco now solutions I'm sure a septic backup is something you never want to happen again you got that right yeah way too costly yeah exactly well there are certain things you can do to help your system operate more efficiently okay like what first of all you probably don't realize that even using or overusing certain household cleaners bacterial soaps or drain line openers can negatively affect your septic system you should never poor unless he's the cook cooking oil or grease down your drain okay you want to avoid flushing things like cigarette butts I don't know visit smoker wipes paper towels or pharmaceuticals paint thinners insecticides or solvents anywhere near down your drains to get in your septic system even if your septic tank is maintained properly it still needs to be pumped to Riyadh EPA recommends that the septic system to inspect it every three years and typically pumped every three to five years however certain municipalities have different laws you should always check sometimes it's more frequently than not okay so any suggestions you have for us to keep our septic properly maintained you can add eco now's septic oxygen to your septic systems with septic oxy tips do is they add oxygen and billions of bacteria that what they do is they help break down how to waste solids grease and even digest toilet paper now because you can't see what happens in the septic tank right I'd like to show you a little demonstration so you can see what the top right yeah I'm going to show you exactly what happens in your septic tank okay what this does is it restores the natural bacteria that's in your tank it also adds bacteria to tank so that it'll run properly and operate at issue as you can see the tablet is fully dissolved in this glass in your tank it disperses all the bacteria and the oxygen to attack your house always look at that I love that that's a great idea okay but the question is how do I get back into my septic system it's very easy you just drop a tablet in your toilet and flush from there at the main pipe leads directly into the septic tank use it once a month and you'll have to thank properly maintain that is easy I can do that except the got two tabs that biodegradable safe to you to have no problem use perfect thank you so much density and nice meeting you thank you by using the septic oxy tabs on a regular basis Debian Massey should have no more problems with the septic tanks to find out more visit subject oxy tabs calm or eco now solutions calm you can visit these websites to learn more about the participants on this edition of designing spaces

    Pure bullshit. If it's coming up in the tub, it's time to get a honey dipper truck. Satisfaction guaranteed or double your load back!!!! Just use rid-x monthly and don't let the wife flush the tampons. You'll be okay.

    I wouldn't trust the dude in the blue shirt, that east coast accent always makes me not trust people. I love his "demonstration" when he puts a Alka-Seltzer tablet in a glass of water and watches it dissolve, some fricking demonstration, what a joke. As a microbiologist, I love how people like him say put Oxygen into the septic tank with bacteria containing tablets. Your septic tank is an anaerobic environment and the bacteria, and certain fungi like Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a yeast), break down the solids. By adding Oxygen, you change to more of a facultative anaerobic condition, killing off most of the bacteria that do the work, Facultative anaerobes are the type most likely to cause serious human health issues (E. coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, etc) that is why they keep adding bacteria in the tablet, you are actually killing off the beneficial anaerobes. By using tablets like this, you will need to keep buying their product or end up needing your tank cleaned much more often. Don't buy those tabs. Instead, mix a packet of regular yeast in with some sugar and very warm water, much like if you were making bread, and flush it down your drain every few months. You can trust either of us, a guy selling you something, or a microbiologist that actually knows what he's talking about.

    You have to switch the anaerobic bacteria to arobic with air injection pumps, it will clean up fast.

    You just have to remember that bacteria is your friend in your septic tank,,so be careful not to kill your friend,,,because if you have enough bacteria you may not ever need to pump out your tank,,

    Too many punchlines for this vid and all of them too risqué for comment. I'll leave it at that.

    No way that pill have a chance to get sucked in the sump pump through the check valve and into the septic tank without it being desolved

    When I was a young boy, my grandfather was a plumber who recommended using Roebic to maintain a septic tank. My neighbor whom did little maintenance had to replace their drain field because it was clogged with scum. My advise to you is to use one of the enzyme products intended to break down solids and clean the drain field to avoid costly repair.
