Why We Need To Maintain Septic Systems
Septic Systems rely upon Good Bacteria and natural processes to keep pipes and tanks clean of toxic materials. These Good Bacteria thrive in a healthy environment that can be created when the Temperature, pH Levels and nutrients are maintained. When these areas are not maintained, the populations of Good Bacteria can die off, reducing in numbers and allowing toxins and bad bacteria to take over leading to a polluted septic tank environment.
PH Levels should be maintained between 6 and 9 to allow for the Good Bacteria to thrive within a waste water environment.
A temperature of between 25 Celsius and 45 Celsius should be maintained
Nutrients can be added at times to further promote the Good Bacteria’s healthy populations.
