Compare Septic System

The aerobic wastewater treatment plant is designed for the treatment of domestic wastewater and nothing else should go into it. During extended periods of intermittent or non-use, such as vacation time, the aerobic bacteria inside the plant will decrease due to no food in the form of incoming wastewater.

The treatment plant will become biologically stable again soon after the resumption of normal loading. The air compressor should be left on during periods of vacation time.

The aerobic plant will not perform to its fullest capabilities if subject to hydraulic overloading. This condition exists whenever excessive water, above the plants designed treatment capacity, is allowed into the plant. Leaking plumbing fixtures or excessive water use may cause this condition.

Hydraulic overload may also occur on wash days, when multiple loads of laundry are washed in succession. Proper operation of your wastewater treatment plant depends upon proper organic and hydraulic loading of the plant.
