Why do I need to maintain my aerobic treatment unit?
Maintenance is key to the life and performance of ATU's. Poor maintenance can cause ATU failure, forcing expensive repairs or replacements at the homeowners expense. With proper care of any onsite sewage system, you can expect a long life and good performance.
Keep in mind that you could be putting your family's health at risk if you are discharging improperly treated wastewater into your yard or ditch. Sewage contains harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause many illnesses.
