Yes it is possible and we do it every day. With the patented IOS-500TM inoculums (bacteria) and an easily installed media in a septic tank we are able to grow and generate microorganisms that possess the proven ability to recover organically clogged leachfields. It is so effective that the Maine Division of Environmental Health has granted the White Knight Septic System a 50% reduction in leachfield size allowing upgraded septic systems at sensitive sites such as seasonal camps with limited area while improving the quality of wastewater returning to the environment.
Significant reductions in Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) of 80% or greater and 50% or greater reduction in Total Nitrogen are typically achieved. We at Maine Site Evaluations, LLC are excited to be able to offer this wastewater technology to help preserve and improve the water quality we are so fortunate to have in this great state of Maine. The patented strain of bacteria that we use was developed to remediate oil-fouled soil by the petroleum industry and you will see a form of the White Knight System working along the Gulf of Mexico for many years to come helping to clean up the present oil mess we see today. Similar materials such as fats, oil and grease clog failing septic systems and can be remediated to restore the soils natural drainage ability.
We have found that some of the newer septic system devices such as Enviro-Septic, Geoflow and Infiltrator units tend to clog at a faster rate than conventional systems and they are great candidates for remediation with the White Knight Septic System which is a cost effective and environmentally sound alternative to leachfield replacement. We always offer free consultation so if you are considering your septic system alternatives we would be glad to talk to you toll free at 800-244-2493 or visit us at MaineSiteEvaluations.com.
