Hello, your friends at Septic Drainer here. Did you know according to the USEPA that 90% of septic failures are in the drain field, leach field or seepage pit.
Did you know there are many types of septic system’s drainage systems? If you visit our website www.septicdrainer.com we you will see many of these types of septic drainage system’s illustrated for you to better understand what system you might have. Did you know your septic system’s design plans are normally stored by your local or county building permit department. These drawings are usually called As-Builds , which consists of a hand drawing or a professional drawing of the layout of the system.
After locating your important structures you should mark them, like your tank access cover or your distribution box which makes future locates easy. A great way to mark these important locations is with Septi-Marker. Septi-Markers are low profile 5″ wafers that mount above the structures but at the base of the grass level, Septi-Markers are lawn mower safe.
Once you’ve located your structures and exposed them we recommend flushing the drain lines or other structures with a pressure washer or pressure jetting unit while vacuuming any debris, such as bio-mat or water and at the same time leaving the structures as clean and dry as possible. Your next step will be adding Septic Drainer a soil conditioner that opens your soil as a result of Hard Pan Soil this treatment allows liquid to drain. Its best to add Septic Drainer directly into your drainage pipes or structures. Your final step would be to add Bio-Septic Boost which will accelerate the growth of aerobic bacteria its this bacteria that will consume a byproduct of the Hard Pan Soil which is called Bio-Mat. The Bio-Septic Boost should be added to the solid side of your septic tank or any inside house drain.
Remember once you restore your system you should add a gallon of Septic Drainer every six months in any clean out closets to the drainage structure or simply in the the toilet. Its recommended to add 2.5 ounces per month of Bio-Septic Boost in any inside house drain.
Be sure to have your tank pumped every two years and repeat the above repair process every five years.
