Broken Septic System
Now I know no one likes talking about a septic system… I mean it’s poop, that’s what it comes down to…. However when that poop is all over your yard you might change your mind. I bet that’s why you are reading this right now isn’t it!? I figured just as much. You want to know first if you can fix it yourself, and second if not how much it’s going to cost, right?
2. A Lot
Once your conventional system fails, most home owners are recommended by professionals to install an aerobic septic system. These systems have a 98% clean out of the tank when applied with their irrigation system. You are really hitting two birds with one stone, a fertilized lawn and getting rid of your poo.
Of course an aerobic system is not cheap, but it will last between 40-60 years and maybe even longer if you keep up on annual maintenance and treat her nice. No chemicals or any “foreign” objects. There is oxygen loving natural bacteria in your tank that feeds on the…um… effluence… and it cannot digest your child’s army figurines.
Shop around for a quality, cheap septic cleaning company. You need someone that knows their stuff, but you also don’t want to pay that much. Most homeowners don’t factor in the annual cost for a septic system or the debt they might incur if their system fails. Installing a new one yourself is almost always out of the question since it requires a lot of knowledge experience and is a huge hassle if installed incorrectly.
You may be out of luck, but after following my tips you can dig yourself out of that disgusting effluent-filled hole and go find a reliable aerobic septic system.
