Low-flow toilets are a great way to reduce the amount of wastewater that ends up in a residential sewage system. If you live in an area that relies on private septic systems, as opposed to a municipal sewer system, it is important to do everything you can to reduce water usage to prevent an overflow of wastewater.
Septic systems are typically used in locations that aren’t connected to the city sewage system. A septic tank is a large tank, usually made out of concrete, that holds waste materials that are flushed through the residential sewage system. Inside the tank, bacteria works to break down the solid wastes, which are then released via wastewater into a drainage system.
Because low-flow toilets reduce water usage, they are ideal for cutting down on the amount of water that enters septic systems. Low-flow toilets are also used by homeowners that do not have a residential sewage system, as a means of reducing overall water consumption.
How Low-Flow Toilets Work
Low-flow toilets are designed to use less water than a standard toilet. The average residential toilet uses three to four gallons per flush, while low-flow toilets use around one-and-a-half gallons per flush. Recently, newer low-flow toilets have been produced that use even less water per flush by using a dual-flush system.
Much like septic tank systems, homeowners need to be aware of what gets flushed down low-flow toilets. The only thing that should ever be flushed down low-flow toilets that are connected to a septic tank system is toilet paper and organic waste. That means absolutely no paper towels, feminine products, diapers, newspapers or other paper materials.
The chemicals used to clean low-flow toilets that are hooked up to a residential septic system must also be chosen carefully. Bleach, abrasives, anti-bacterial cleansers and other bathroom cleaners should never be flushed into septic tank systems or washed down the drain. Use natural cleaners, such as baking soda or vinegar, to protect the good bacteria inside the septic tank that works to breakdown solid waste.
Part of a Healthy Septic Tank System
All of the parts of your residential septic system work together to effectively and efficiently process all the waste from your home. Low-flow toilets can be an important part of a well-run septic system. The best way to care for your system is to hire a professional septic system maintenance and inspection service.
A low-flow toilet is very easy to maintain and helps to reduce water usage in the bathroom. The fixture that helps to reduce water usage inside low-flow toilets may need to be adjusted every now and again. This fixture is the fill valve. It is used to maintain a proper level of water inside the toilet tank.
All-Clear Septic & Wastewater offers a preventative maintenance program, which can be used to keep tabs on the effectiveness of your system, catch potential problems before they get out of control and keep your residential sewage system running properly. Learning about your system and how it should be used and cared for, is another important part of good home ownership. Proper care and preventative maintenance, when used together, can prevent costly repairs and replacements. Call Septic Preservation Services at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
5/25/16 Septic Preservation Services is working with bico breweries to resolve their wastewater issues. During the process of brewing beer wastewater is produced. This wastewater is very strong and can quickly cause a septic system to fail. For breweries that are on city sewer the wastewater typically exceeds the permissible limits of their discharge permit, exposing the brewery to potential fines. With proper treatment the waste strength can be reduced avoiding these costly problems. For more information call 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
5/24/16 Septic Preservation Services in conjunction with our sister companies All Clear Septic and Wastewater and Down to Earth Construction are revising our informational brochures. We would like to better convey all of the services that we provide including title 5 septic inspections, septic designs, septic repairs, septic tank pumping, and septic system installations. We also want to communicate that we are a full service septic company from Wellfleet, Plymouth, Dartmouth, Attleboro, Franklin, Halifax, the entire north shore, all of Rhode Island as well as Maine. If you have any suggestions how we can better communicate this information please call our office at 877-379-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

We could all use a little change. Sometimes just a little change can make a big difference. Your septic system is the same way. New technology makes it possible to provide biological remediation to your septic system and improve its effectiveness, by increasing its hydraulic capacity, and adding years of additional life.
What is Biological Remediation
Many homeowners don’t realize that there is a process that can remediate septic systems that are considered to be severely failed. There are lots of products out there on the market that promise to rejuvenate septic systems by aerating the wastewater. There are limits to aerating wastewater because water itself can only be infused with a limited amount of oxygen before it just bubbles up and floats back into the atmostphere.
The process used by All-Clear Septic & Wastewater, which services customers all throughout Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, introduces oxygen into the system as well as biologically augments the system. By introducing air into the system, the process of biological remediation is faster and much more thorough. All-Clear has successfully applied this process to septic systems that tried every other method of rejuvenation, and found it to be superior.
How Does It Work?
When the air is added to the surrounding soil and the clogging biomat of your septic system, the hydraulic capacity of your septic treatment can get boosted by as much as two or five times what it was before. By increasing efficiency, homeowners are able to reduce the size of their drainfield or leachfield and keep that extra area in reserve for future use.
In addition to residential properties, this technique can even be used for commercial purposes, including laundry facilities, healthcare services, restaurants and other businesses that typically process a lot of waste and use a lot of water. Biological remediation can be used on any type of septic system including drop, chambers, stone and pipe.
Oxygen is Key to an Efficient Septic System
In addition to using this treatment technique to revive failed septic systems, it can also be used with systems that haven’t failed – yet. Older systems, systems that get a lot of use, or customers that live in areas that are known to have soil issues due to environment or location, can all benefit from biological remediation. By adding oxygen to the surrounding soil, you return your septic system to a natural, ideal state of filtration, allowing it to renovate and clean the wastewater of suspended matter and waste solids through the use of micro organisms and nutrients.
Oxygen also helps the soil to maintain a consistent moderate temperature, which is ideal for the treatment of wastewater. When your system gets overloaded with wastewater, due to increased use or changes in the texture and ability of the soil to transfer oxygen, your septic system is at risk of failure. The lower the availability of oxygen, the less micro organisms and nutrients available to assist in proper filtration, which ultimately reduces the hydraulic performance and treatment abilities of your septic system.
Increasing Efficiency and Effectiveness
Biological remediation helps to maintain the optimal levels of oxygen required for proper filtration in and around the drainfield and leaching system to assure the best possible performance. Because the oxygen levels are increased, as well as the ability of the drainfield to effectively filter solid wastes from the wastewater, property owners are able to reduce the space needed to properly treat their sewage waste. This is extremely helpful in areas that have limited space, as well as naturally wet areas including property that is near lakes, watersheds, wetlands and other bodies of water.
Compared to water, air contains 21,000 times more oxygen. Wastewater can be difficult to full aerate to its maximum capacity, even with pre-treatment systems, due to high levels of total suspended solids. Biological remediation tackles this problem as well, helping to reduce the biological oxygen demand and remove suspended solids. It has also been proven to increase the pathogen removal rate, which is important for the overall health and safety of the system. By increasing oxygenation in the soil, nitrogen is also removed through treatment by as much as 75%.
