Septic System Observations

In most cases, where the septic system leaching bed isn’t performing well or not functioning at all. During treatment, we observe a steep pressure climb once the pipes are pressurized then a slow pressure decline and finally ease of flow. Which indicates that many blockages have been eliminated. It’s definitely a great sign.

Some septic systems have visible effluent upon hand digging of the tank pipe outlet. Once the treatment is performed the small excavation had gone dry within 1 or 2 hours later.

Another encouraging observation that is truly very positive and possibly the best of all observations is the growth of rich, dark green grass throughout the whole leaching bed. If it spreads along the whole area of the septic bed then it was a very successful treatment. The more area the better.
