Program aims to provide dealers and installers with tools they need to help identify, educate and give peace of mind to homeowners of failing septic systems and prevent future failures
Bio-Microbics announced the new S.O.S.--Save Our Septic--Prevention-Remediation Program. The program aims to provide dealers and installers with the tools they need to help identify, educate and give peace of mind to homeowners of failing septic systems and to prevent future failures.
As a solution to failed drain fields, soggy lawns, foul odors and plumbing backups, Bio-Microbics RetroFAST system has the ability to immediately improve a biologically failed drain field, the company said. The RetroFAST helps remediate most septic system failures by producing high levels of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) that promotes the growth of more efficient aerobic bacteria in the septic tank. The integrated fixed film of the FAST process helps to retain a high ratio of aerobes to produce 95% to 99% of the treatment in the tank before reaching the failing drain field. The DO and bacteria then travel within the highly treated effluent into the failed disposal field to aid in digesting the excessive and clogged biomat. With the biomat diminished, the soil is free to accept septic effluent--rejuvenating the disposal field.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-verified RetroFAST septic system enhancement aims to improve small onsite treatment systems and help ensure a clean environment for future generations without the use of costly chemicals or additives. The RetroFAST aims to prevent/remediate failures and extend the life of a septic system. Under this program, the company is offering a money-back warranty. If after one year from the date of installation the RetroFAST Septic System Enhancement does not remediate the existing failed septic system, the owner is entitled to the refund amount of RetroFAST system.
Since the RetroFAST is considered to be "remediation" of an existing system that has already been permitted, most areas do not require a permit for this type of technology to be installed.
