What Does a Septic Tank Aerator Do?
Many systems run in an oxygen-deprived environment, however there are likewise alternative systems, consisting of aerobic systems. These count on the concept that the bacteria in an oxygen-rich environment will break down the solids in your reservoir faster, so aerobic systems are built with an unique chamber or tank that includes air to the effluent. To be clear, aeration systems are built totally differently than basic tanks. A basic reservoir has one or two chambers for the product to settle in. An aeration system normally has 3 to four unique chambers or specific tanks. The first one is like a basic reservoir, where the solids get an opportunity to settle. The 2nd one includes an aeration system, hooked to an external air pump. You can compare this to the bubbler on a fish tank, however more effective. Once the effluent finishes in the aeration chamber, it moves to the next stage, which invol ves chlorination. Often a whole reservoir is committed to settling and chlorination, while other times the effluent merely goes through a chlorinator en route to a settlement reservoir. In any case, it is constantly given an opportunity to settle again prior to it gets pumped out to the soil, and most of the times, aeration systems utilize sprinklers to disperse the effluent, not a leach field.

What Does an Aftermarket Septic Tank Aerator Do?
There are a lot of aftermarket septic tank aerator systems and they generally inform you that you will not have to pump the sludge out again, or that your pumping needs will be less frequent if you install it. They even tell you that it can fix a system when the leach field has stopped working. They can't and they d on't.
First off, the aeration system kicks up all that sludge from the bottom of the reservoir, however never gets a chance to "settle out." You might see that you need to pump less, and indeed, there might be more germs chowing away, however all that particles drifting around winds up right in your leach field. It obstructs it, grows the biomat excessively thick so it cannot drain, and it sends out real actual solid waste out into your soil. Needless to state, this is rather unpleasant and unsanitary.
