Septic vent helps keep drainfield healthy and odor-free

Problem: A homeowner located in Massachusetts was in the process of a septic repair installation when they noticed a plastic PVC candy cane was being installed in the yard. Disturbed by the look of it and the potential for odor, they asked the installer if there was another option.

Solution: The installer contacted Pagoda Vent Company and purchased a septic vent.

Result: The customer was happy with the final result and the drainfield, along with all the subsurface components, will get the oxygen they need. 888-864-1468;

Bacterial generator provides remediation for duck farm

Problem: The Reichardt Duck Farm in Petaluma, California, has to deal with 200,000 gallons of raw duck refuse daily. With more than 40 million gallons of ponds, they had tremendous capacity, but the high-strength waste built up over time and they had to improve conditions. 

Solution: SludgeHammer’s Aerobic Bacterial Generator was the solution. While invented to provide bacteria to septic tanks, scale-up was simple. The SludgeHammer unit let the farm grow its own bacterial supply.

Result: A massive supply of new bacteria consumed sludge, reducing BOD, solids, nitrogen and ultimately increasing the growth rate of the farm’s ducks, improving profitability. 231-348-5866;
