We have experienced septic system issues for many years. The system would pool water in the yard at the furthest chamber from the tank. The pooling seemed to occur more during rainy periods; however, there were times that pooling occurred during periods of drought. Water usage was the main contributing factor.
We were facing the prospect of placing a second chamber system in the yard so to rest the original system for several months or even years. Such a solution would cost over $10,000, not including the cost of ripping up and replacing the yard.
We began researching the idea of changing the original system to an aerobic system. We became convinced that our problem was primarily due to the issue of biomat building up over 20+ years.
We contacted the kind folks at Aero Stream and had several phone conversations with Dave and Nick even prior to purchasing their system. We have two 1,000 tanks thanks to the initial Perc Rite system that was originally installed, and they talked us through the process of installing their Pro Line Kit in our layout.
The system installation is as easy as advertised. We checked in with Dave and Nick throughout our installation process, and they were extremely helpful.
The system has been working great for three weeks now, and we believe our problem has been resolved. Within days there was no odor emitting from the system, and there is no more pooling. We additionally installed three 7" Aero Stream risers on our tanks with again the help of Dave and Nick.
Aero Stream has provided a much cheaper and much better solution to our problem. We didn't think we'd come up smelling so good! I highly recommend them.
