Aerobic Septic Systems

An aerobic wastewater treatment system, often called an aerobic septic system, is a small scale sewage treatment system similar to a septic tank, but which uses an aerobic process (adding air or oxygen) for digestion rather than the anaerobic (without air) process used in septic systems.

Adding air promotes the growth of organisms that break down the solids, which are put through a clarifier and chlorinated for disinfection which produces a cleaner more environmentally friendly discharge. This cleaner discharge eliminates the need of a drainage field (leach field) allowing the system to be installed on a small property where a standard septic tank system would not have been possible.

Aerobic Treatment Units are gradually replacing traditional septic tanks due to their efficiency and benefit to the environment.

EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2012, OKLAHOMA DEQ HAS CHANGED THE STATE LAW REQUIRING ALL NEW SYSTEMS THAT ARE 1330′ OR LESS FROM A CREEK OR WATERWAY YOU MUST HAVE AN AEROBIC SYSTEM, IF YOUR NEW SYSTEM IS 660′ OR LESS FROM A CREEK YOU MUST HAVE A NITROGEN REDUCTION AEROBIC SYSTEM

We install ClearStream Aerobic Systems

The ClearStream Wastewater Treatment System is designed for treating domestic wastewater generated by normal household activities.  The system consists of a single tank, single extended aeration activated sludge.  The system is capable of producing an effluent which meets or exceeds applicable state discharge standards.  This system has been successfully tested in accordance with national sanitation foundation (NSF) Standard 40.

 

  • Pre-treatment stage removes large solids and other undesirable substances from the wastewater; this stage acts much like a septic system.

  • Aeration stage, where the aerobic bacteria digests the biological wastes in the wastewater.

  • Settling stage to allow any undigested solids to settle. This forms a sludge which must be periodically removed from the system.

  • Disinfecting stage, where chlorine or similar disinfectant is mixed with the water, to produce an antiseptic output or effluent that is then sprayed cleanly onto the yard.

Benefits of an aerobic septic system

 

  • No Drain Field Required

  • Heavy Duty Reinforced Concrete (no plastic inserts)

  • Produce a high quality effluent(discharge)

  • Low cost maintenance

  • Can be used to correct many failing systems

  • No filters to change or clog up

  • User friendly One piece construction

  • Easy access to every component

  • No moving parts to wear out including control box

  • Simple mechanical timers

  • Suitable for use in nearly any soil condition

Maintenance

 

Maintenance of an aerobic septic system is the most important factor insuring proper system operation. DEQ rules require that the aerobic manufacturer or representative (installer) shall provide and sign a two-year initial service policy, or maintenance agreement, with the owner/operator. After the two years has elapsed, contract renewal is optional. The cost of the initial service policy is included in the original purchase price and contains provisions for four inspection/service visits.

 

These inspection/service visits are used to inspect, adjust, and service the electrical, mechanical and other components. This becomes the owner/operator’s responsibility if the two-year initial service policy has expired and is not renewed. Although some maintenance may be done by the owner/operator most should be performed by a professional. Poorly maintained systems will not produce properly treated effluent. For the best care, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.

 

As the owner/operator, use these general guidelines as a basis for maintaining your system.

  • Aerobic septic systems are designed to treat only household wastewater. If toxic or hazardous materials enter the system, treatment may be affected. (Normal household chemicals will not harm the system).

  • Routinely inspect the equalization tank for sludge build up.

  • Equalization tanks may need to be cleaned out every one to two years.

  • Check the disinfecting system on a regular basis. Proper disinfection will greatly reduce the risk of pathogens in the effluent.

  • Maintain the vegetative cover in the surface application area.

  • Observe good water conservation practices.

  • If an alarm is activated, call your maintenance provider or a professional.
