Some of our clients use the Mini Air aeration system in their septic tank to help remove and reduce the build-up of organic matter in the leaching bed and thus manage odours. They are able to extend the life of their septic system by keeping it in good condition without the need for expensive rebuilding.

You can read the article Restoring a septic system without digging, which is a testimonial from one of our customers; he reduced his sludge and organic matter levels by 16 inches in only 2 weeks!

In combination with septic tank aeration, you can also add bacterial products. The beneficial and natural bacteria will help reduce the build-up of organic matter in the septic tank and are safe to use.

The ¼HP air pump is very quiet, consumes little energy (3 amps) and makes a maximum of 30 PSI while providing an air volume of 1.24 CFM. The compressor must be placed in a location that is sheltered from the weather and where there is good air circulation because no cabinet is sold with this system. It is important to protect the compressor from bad weather.

The diffuser and the air supply hoses are heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the water without the need for ballast. The air pushed from the compressor will travel through the Torpedo feeder line to the diffuser. The diffuser will let the air escape in fine micro-bubbles of oxygen that will move up the water column. The oxygen and circulation created will help maintain the health of your pond.
