The Benefits of an Aerator Septic Tank

An aerator septic tank is one of several types of tanks you can get for your septic system. This type of tank is designed to enable more efficient breakdown of water by-products and waste from your household. It provides large amounts of oxygen (aeration) within the system which keeps the system functioning more smoothly, allows for better break-down of the waste and prolongs the life of the system.

Aerobic bacteria (organisms that can grow and survive in the presence of oxygen) thrive where there is a healthy oxygen flow throughout the environment. This is important because these beneficial bacteria break down waste products more rapidly and dissolve them more completely and thus keep you from needing to have your tank pumped as frequently.These Aerobic bacteria will flourish in an aerator septic tank.

Because of this the Aerobic Septic Tanks have several obvious advantages over a standard septic system. Less build up of waste material over time and a septic system that lasts for many years without difficulty are main selling features that cause it to appeal to most homeowners.

Add An Aerator To Present Tank

If you currently have another type of septic tank and would like to experience the advantages of an aerator tank, it is possible to purchase an aeration unit to install on your older one. You will need to speak with a septic professional about how to position the aerator unit as it will depend on the type of tank you have (single tank system or a multiple tank design). Or of course you can have your old septic tank replaced with a new Aerator Tank.

Besides lengthening the life of your system, many of the aerator tanks also have an alarm that will alert you to possible problems you would otherwise be completely unaware of within your septic system. Having the opportunity to fix the problem before it harms the system is of great benefit.

Whichever kind of system you may decide on, it is very important to do regular maintenance and schedule regular pump cleanings. Keeping your septic system operating properly will prevent possible contamination of your property and ground water and is important for the health of you and your family. An aerator septic tank is a good option to consider and one well worth the money.
