  3. Do residential septic systems require aeration?

    October 16, 2010, 7:36 pm
    I recently purchased a house with a septic sytem. In the crawl space I found a air pump with a hose going into the ground. The air pump was plugged into a plug with the label aerator. The air pump has seized and no longer works. I wonder if it is worth replacing. The septic tank does seem to have an odor problem. I was wondering if certain septic systems requuire aeration. Other people I know with septic systems do not have aerators. Does anyone know about this.

  6. Advice on my septic tank aerator motor please.?

    October 10, 2010, 4:14 pm
    We've had the motor repaired twice on our septic tank aeration system. The first time was shortly after it was put, they installed it too low and rain water flooded it. The next time was after it received it's yearly inspection by the county health department, who found it working properly but neglected to inform us that an air filter on it needed cleaned, so it eventually got clogged and the motor overheated. That took over $500 to fix. Now, over a year later, I found last weekend the air hose had vibrated off so it was running but not actually injecting air into the tank. I reattached it and cleaned the filter's surface off residue. A week later I've just come inside from making sure the air hose is securely attached and now the motor and air hose feel quite hot to the touch. I know it is a large electric motor and will produce heat, but I'm wondering if something else is going wrong again. I need some advice please.
