A Septic System is a living device which contains and takes in human waste.
A septic system works likewise to a campfire. Wood in the campfire goes through a chemical reaction that leaves ashes as sediment. The septic system enables matter to be subjected to a biological procedure that leaves sludge as sediment at the bottom of the tank. In both procedures a large mass of matter is broken down into a small portion of its original volume leaving a small amount of components.

Including germs regularly will replenish the germs colonies in your tank and reduce smells and tank volume build-ups.

A Lot Of Houses with Septic Systems that were developed since the year “2000” have an additional integrated in booby trap for homeowners. Federal DEQ requirements have mandated that an effluent filter be installed at the discharge end of the sewage-disposal tank to avoid suspended solids from going into the leach system, consequently safeguarding the Leach System. However, they overlooked to mandate access to clean up the filter and avoid causing a backup into the house. Since this writing, I have serviced more than a hundred such incidents and have yet to find a consumer that had even a hint that the filter existed or that this might result.
