HOW DOES YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM WORK?
The septic tank holds wastewater from the home until solid debris settles at the bottom of the tank (the sludge layer) and lighter waste, such as oil, rises to the top to form the scum layer. Between the two layers lies clarified liquid, which flows into an outlet pipe and is gradually dissipated through a drain field. Bacteria in the septic tank naturally break down organic waste matter and slow the accumulation of the sludge layer.
WHAT CAUSES A SEPTIC SYSTEM TO FAIL?
A lack of biological activity. As the microbiology is killed by anti bacterial products and soap we quickly start degrading the septic system which results in a build up of solids and anaerobic material.
HOW CAN HOTROD HELP?
Hotrod adds and enhances the microbiology within the septic system to rid your system of sludge and solids. As the product makes its way into the drain field it starts to focus on the bio-blanket as well as the sodium in the soil to improve percolation in the drain field.
