A homeowner, living in an environmentally sensitive area in Central California, called PSTS, Inc. – Peninsula Septic Tank Service, about a septic system problem after noticing smelly puddles in the yard.
Upon inspection, the technician found the septic tanks were full of water as were the drain lines outside. The distribution box was full and not draining. Replacing the leach fields would be prohibited by new county rules. The cost of a self-treating system would be upward of $30,000. The customer did not want jetting or any other process performed.
It was decided to pump the tank and drain fields and apply a shock treatment of 4 gallons of Septic Perc Eco-friendly Drain Field Treatment directly to the drain field.
After two weeks, water on top of the field was gone and the d-box was at a normal level. After four months customer’s septic tanks and field have not required any further pumping.
