How to choose bacteria for a septic tank
Types of biological products. There are three types of bacteria currently used by manufacturers of household products.
- Anaerobic microorganisms live and multiply without using air oxygen. Such biological products work well in closed containers, where they successfully develop and feed. Organics in a septic tank are processed by bacteria to the smallest solid particles. They sink to the bottom, where they accumulate, and then are removed using a sewer truck. The settled water can be used to water the garden.
- Aerobic microorganisms actively absorb oxygen from the air during their vital activity. Preparations based on them are intended for cleaning cesspools and open chambers of septic tanks. It is allowed to add bio-composition to closed tanks, but additionally it is necessary to create an air flow using a deep compressor. Organic waste is converted to carbon dioxide, the temperature rises slightly, and the resulting sludge can be used for composting.
- Bioactivators. To obtain the maximum effect of biomass processing, manufacturers add several types of bacteria and enzymes to one composition. Bioactivators are versatile, although there are also narrowly targeted series among them. For example, certain strains of bacteria are selected to fight fatty deposits in the pipes. Soap sediment is better processed by other microorganisms. Therefore, when buying bioactivators, you should learn about the specialization of the product.
Conditions for the effective work of bacteria. In order for a colony of microorganisms in a septic tank to work fruitfully and multiply, it is necessary to create favorable conditions for bacteria.
- The collection must constantly receive a nutrient medium, and the household products used for cleaning toilets or baths do not contain chlorine-containing compounds. Also, it is not allowed to drain antibiotics into the sewer.
- The vital activity of microorganisms also depends on the temperature of the biomass. The lower the temperature, the slower the decomposition of organic matter. Many strains fall asleep at temperatures below + 5 ° C.
- To speed up the waste recycling process, you should perform the simplest preparatory measures. To begin with, the biological product is dissolved in clean, settled water (without chlorine). As a top dressing, you can use kefir, which will awaken microorganisms. It is enough to wait a few hours, and the finished solution can be poured into a septic tank.
