Debord's Benjamin Franklin Septic System

Waste Water Treatment Systems (Aeration) – Chardon, Ohio

If your home has a septic system, it is your responsibility as a homeowner to maintain the septic system. A poorly maintained septic system can contaminate groundwater, lead to foul odors, and cause the plumbing in your home to back up. A properly installed, used, and maintained the septic system will last decades, worry free.


Maintaining Your Septic System – Chardon Ohio

While septic systems are not inherently difficult, it is important to use septic systems correctly and maintain them properly. Septic systems should be inspected every three years and drained every 3-5 years. Avoid putting grease and oils down the kitchen sink. Make sure everyone in the household knows that nothing should go to the toilet except for human waste and toilet paper. No cotton swabs, baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton balls, hairballs, diapers, dental floss, or anything else!


How Do Septic Systems Work?

A septic system takes the waste from your home to a buried, watertight tank. In the septic tank solids, settle and oils float to the top. Anaerobic digestion breaks down some of the solids and helps purify the waste. The wastewater is then discharged from the septic tank into a larger drain field. The soil in the drain field completes the wastewater treatment process to keep sewage from entering the water table.


What About Septic Aeration?

Septic systems process waste with anaerobic bacteria, meaning bacteria that live and function without oxygen. Anaerobic bacteria work slowly compared to aerobic bacteria. Aerating the septic tank can break down the solid wastes much faster, so you need to pump out the tankless, and the system operates more efficiently.

The septic plumbers at Benjamin Franklin can review your home’s septic system and help you decide of septic aeration is right for your home.
