Compare Septic Genie to other Treatment Methods
|Treatment Method||Creates aerobic environment||Grows thriving colony of powerful aerobic bacteria to digest organic solids (waste from your home and biomat)||Safe for the environment, people, pets||Extends life of septic system|
|Septic Genie System||Yes, with non-depletable oxygen||Yes, the patented Septic Genie Aerobic Bacteria Generator (ABG) is the only septic technology that creates a unique environment rich with non-depletable oxygen where our patented powerful natural bacteria thrives and rapidly multiplies, digesting 90%+ of organic solids in the tank, and clearing the biomat clogging the drain field.||Yes||Yes|
|Aerobic Systems||Yes, with extremely depletable dissolved oxygen (DO)||No||Yes||Maybe – does nothing to ensure ‘good’ bacteria thrive over long term.|
|Bacteria or Enzyme Additives||No||Short term fix.
Due to anaerobic environment, ‘good’ bacteria dies quickly, requires frequent addition of new bacteria. If you stop adding new bacteria, failure will likely reoccur.
|Yes||No – can cause premature septic system failure. Enzymes in these products cause more suspended solids in the tank water, solids then pass to the drain field and cause system failure.|
|Replace drain field||No||No, short term fix.
Biomat will form again and clog new drain field over time.
|Requires disposal of old drain field (contaminated materials)||Yes – at a cost of $5,000 to $50,000|
|Pumping septic tank||No||No||No||Short term fix only. Removes solids from tank, but if you make no other changes, they will build up again.|
