Clearstream CS103F Alternative Rotary Vane Septic Air Pump
To this day, it remains a highly durable pump that has a typical operating lifetime of 10-13 years. With continued use, the rotary vanes will eventually breakdown and cause the pump to fail. Even worse, failure to purchase a new pump could cause damage to your entire septic system. Ensure that your water is properly treated by maintaining a working septic pump.
Also known as a septic air pump or air compressor, septic aerators are required for every aerobic septic system in existence. Septic aerators pump air into a water treatment tank. Once the air is in the tank, it can provide helpful bacteria with the oxygen needed to process your home's waste. Without a properly working septic air pump, your system discharge will produce a foul smelling odor. If you didn’t know, that is the smell of untreated raw sewage. Aside from the smell, a malfunctioning aerator can lead to a variety of problems as well -- including improper drainage and overfilling. This could potentially result in expensive service calls.
