Septic Life!!

You wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and all of a sudden the floor is wet. You turn on a light to see what is going on and then you realize the toilet has been hung open and running for hours! You stop the toilet and go outside to find a red light and the buzzer going off.  How could this happen?  Sometimes our luck is not so good! Toilet hung up and pump breaker tripping at the same time, what are the odds?  Hey it happens.  With a remote monitoring device installed you would have gotten a text saying your alarm was going off, indicating a problem.  Not only would you get a text but we would also get the same message and you would receive a call or message from us as well.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Most folks don't realize that a leaking toilet or faucet can wreak havoc on any septic system.  If the pump runs continuously it can overheat and shut down or even worse trip the breaker.  I you don't catch it, or if you are not home or out of town, you could come home to a complete disaster.  Always check your fixtures and keep an eye on your septic system and consider a remote monitoring system ($1,100.00 Installed). I promise you that is a small price to pay compared to a house flooded with sewage.  You will never get rid of the smell! Give us a call and schedule a free fixture inspection and let us install a remote monitoring system today and protect yourself from disaster. And remember if its dripping its a problem that needs to be fixed immediately.

Weekend Checkup

Most of us look forward to the weekend, its time to unwind from the week and relax and recharge the batteries for the next week.  Maybe a little yard work, however in this heat...I dont know.  But your Aerobic Septic System never stops or takes a break, so this is a good time to go take a look and listen and yes even a sniff.  This may sound GROSS but this is actually one of the things we check at each visit is the odor or lack of.  Your Aerobic treatment unit should smell like an old musty closet, not Sewage. If it is getting the right amount of air and food the process should be running good and it shouldnt smell all that bad.  PH level is very important as well, if a customer is using a lot of vinegar for cleaning stuff this system will smell sour and not work as well until that acid is processed and no longer introduced into the system.  If you have a surface disposal or spray Aerobic Septic System then you have to add chlorine or some other disinfection process.  We install liquid chlorinators on all of our systems and if you have one, or even if you have tablets, the weekend is a good time to check and fill the chlorinator.  So enjoy your weekend and stay safe and give us a call for all of your Aerobic Septic System needs.

Vacation Homes and Low Use Aerobic Septic Systems

We are so fortunate to live in The Great State of Texas, where it seems like the economy is always doing well and we have lots of beautiful lakes and land to which we escape for some relaxation.  Vacation and Lake houses are very popular and many of us have more than one home to take care of.  However, much of the time we forget about the aerobic septic system.  Hey as long as the toilet flushes were good right?  WRONG!!! If the effluent pump is operational then most likely the toilet will flush, but is the effluent being pumped out into your yard a good quality effluent or are you simply pumping sewage from the toilet to the yard.  An Aerobic Septic System in many ways is like a fish aquarium, only instead of fish you have bacteria. What happens to the fish in an aquarium if they run out of food?  They turn to eating each other!!! OUCH!!  Now besides the canabalism factor, the problem with this is that eventually there will only be one left and when there is no more food the last one dies off, basically leaving you with a tank full of water and dead organisms.  When new food is added to the tank there is nothing there to eat it thus letting the food rot and making the tank basically a big nasty wet trash can. So what happens to a septic tank that does not have organic waste being introduced daily? The same thing!! The bugs run out of food and start eating each other and when the last one dies so does the aerobic treatment process.  So all of the new waste introduced to the system simply passes through and out into your yard.  GROSS!! Mind as well just go outside and save the water....Right? Wrong!  So you may ask well what about when you first install the system, there are no bugs in the water then so why doesnt it just pass through and go out in to the yard?  Because the water in a new system is clean and fresh, not full of toxic dead bugs that have already been processed as far as they can go.  So you could just call T.E.R. to come pump it out and start all over, or try another trick.  First of all make sure you have a T.E.R. Aerobic Septic Maintenance Contract, and let us know up front this is a vacation or second home and will not be lived in full time.  We can take steps during our visits to keep the "BugLife" vigorous and active.  We can add bacteria to the treatment plant at each visit or you can purchase some from our store to keep on hand and make sure it gets loaded once a month.  You can also add a cup of sugar and a cup of corn meal before you lock up and leave.  This will keep bugs active for several weeks.  But remember if your gonna be gone longer than that you may want to let us know so we can give you a monthly treatment plan and add to your maintenance contract.  If you have questions or want to know more give us a call!! We will come out and provide you with a free consultation and develop a plan that is right for you.

Chaos!!

This Blog is unrelated to Septic Systems, however I just want to express our hearfelt condolences to all of the families in Odessa and Midland TX.  It is never easy to discuss events like the one that unfolded yesterday, and we all have different opinions on how to deal and make changes that would possibly prevent these types of atrocities.  But the bottom line is that there are bad people in this world and that is never gonna change.  There are no laws or rules or anything that will stop bad people from finding a way to share their problems, hatred, or social discourse with the rest of the world.  Unfortunately we just have to learn to be very aware of our surroundings and defend ourselves when necessary.  I personally depend on God to protect me and my family and trust that his plan is bigger than mine.  No matter what your belief is or is not, Please Stay Safe.  We are all in this together whether we like it or not.  If you see something, say something.  I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Labor Day! Lets all try to make this world a better place one person at a time.

Hurricane Season is here!

Yes Hurricane Season is here and you may ask what does that have to do with Septic Systems? Well it has lots to do with Septic Systems, especially if the power is knocked out for several days.  Your Aerobic Septic Systems is small scale wastewater treatment plant that must operate 24/7. Your septic system is designed to process a certain amount of organic waste in a 24 hour period and is also designed to contain different stages of treatment in each compartment.  So when the power goes out, no more processing of organic waste is taking place, also the excess water being introduced to the system has no where to go. This causes the system to back up and becoming contaminated or as I like to put it " Your entire system goes Septic".  This is a problem as it transfers solid waste to the other compartments of the system which will require removal and cleaning in order to get it back up and going once the power is restored.  So what do you do?

History in the making!!

Septic Systems and Septic Tanks have been around for almost 160  years. The first septic tank was invented by a Frenchman named John Louis Mouras. His tank was made out of concrete, much like many of the products completed today.  Septic Systems in Montgomery County Texas are a very important part of the wastewater industry as they are the primary component of wastewater disposal in many homes and business where municipal utility districts (MUD) do not exist. When installed and maintained properly, they are a very effective and efficient means of treating wastewater.  It is very important to understand everything you can about your Septic System in Montgomery County Texas in order to maintain your system and to minimize costs related to repair and neglect. Your septic system can get very dirty very quickly if not maintained properly.  It is very important to understand how it works as well as how to operate it properly.  Your septic is designed to process organic waste and water only.  It is not for processing trash and other non organic material.  So the only things that should go in your septic system is human waste and toilet paper.  No Tampons, Condoms, Cigarettes, Trash or  plastic wrappers. All of these items as well as others are very harmful to your septic system and can be the source of costly repairs.
