My family of 7 has lived in our country sub home since it was built 14 years ago. I had the septic tanks pumped every 3 years for we are on clay land.
2 years ago our system failed. It happened the weekend before our son’s graduation party. Needless to say it was rather embarrassing, not to mention the health risk (It was like a scene out of the movie “Meet the Parents”)
I found the Septic Genie sight as I searched the Web for info on Septic fields. To be honest, it sounded too good to be true. I called them multiple times, peppering them with questions about their product.
As I saw it, my options were:
Put in a new field at $10,000 – $20,000 + damage to the front lawn and landscaping. Not to mention the problem would more than likely reoccur in 15 years due to the clay soil.
Try the Septic Genie.
I installed the Genie in Feb ’06, and by May ’06 there was a noticeable difference in the yard. The dark green soggy grass areas had disappeared. The smell was gone. Now 1 year later, my yard still looks (and smells) great.
