How often should septic aerator run?
Furthermore, how often should my septic pump run?
As a general rule, you should ideally empty out your septic tank once every three to five years. However, the actual frequency will vary depending on usage and how many people live in your household.
what size aerator do I need for a septic tank? A typical septic aerator pump might run at 5 CFM or 80 LPM of air output. The typical range of septic air pumps for residential septic systems is about 2 to 8 cfm or from about 40 to 200 LPM of air.
Regarding this, how do I know if my septic aerator is working?
The surest sign your aerator has failed is an overwhelming unpleasant odor coming from where your system discharges, whether into a secondary treatment system or directly into the environment.
How long does a septic air pump last?
Air pumps typically last between two and three years although they can last longer with a proper rebuild kit. You might need to consider replacing your aerator if the drainage from your aerobic septic system smells and looks like sewage or if your sewage backs up onto your property.
