Septic Repair Using Controlled Septic Aeration from Aero-Stream®
How a Septic System Works and Why They Fail
Perhaps you have noticed the large lagoons or ponds at municipal wastewater treatment plants. These lagoons are actually the aerobic treatment portion of the wastewater treatment process. These lagoons contain millions of gallons of wastewater. Within the lagoons are aeration devices that dissolve oxygen into the wastewater to promote aerobic digestion. Aero-Stream has adapted this same technology, but scaled down to fit into the standard septic tank (like the one in your yard) to facilitate restoration and repair to a failing system.
What Causes Septic Problems?
Conventional septic systems work in an anaerobic or oxygen free environment, promoting the growth of a black, sludge-like layer called the biomat in the drain field. Drainfield is a generic term that refers to: gravity fed and pressurized drainfields, mounds, trenches, cesspools, seepage pits, drywells and lagoons.
Over time, the biomat builds up and seals the ground and sidewalls of the drainfield, preventing it from absorbing water discharged from the septic tank. This results in many symptoms of septic system failure, including ponding, foul smell, sluggish toilets and drains, tank overflows and system back-ups. – Read more about aerobic bacteria vs. anaerobic bacteria.

How Aero-Stream® Resolves Septic Problems
Through research and development, Aero-Stream® patented an easily installed process that converts the anaerobic system to an aerobic or oxygen rich system. By introducing oxygen into the septic tank, aerobic bacteria thrive and consume 20-30 times more organic material than anaerobic bacteria.
The aerobic bacteria dramatically reduce the amount of nutrients in the septic tank effluent (discharged black water) that the biomat requires to live and grow. As a result, the biomat begins to die. The biomat is further reduced in size by aerobic bacteria that leave the septic tank (along with water containing high levels of dissolved oxygen) and feed upon it.
Biomat dying and drainfield permeability restored in an aerobic septic system
Faced with starvation and hungry aerobic bacteria, the biomat shrinks in size until it completely disappears. The ground and sidewalls of the drainfield return to a permeable state and the aerobic septic system now functions as if it was just installed.
In most cases, the symptoms of septic problems and failure are eliminated and the septic system is restored to working condition in a matter of weeks.
