The man who installed it for us comes out to empty it, by shoveling the s**t foam out and DUMPING IT IN THE WOODS BEHIND MY HOUSE. Apparenty it is partially treated or something??? It bothers me anyway....
He warned us to be careful about using certain types and amounts of soaps, and not flushing anything other than toilet paper, and we follow his advice, but it still happens. We've had to pay $185 three times during the last 11 months alone just to have the huge truck come out to pump the entire thing. My husband and I have on numerous occasions had to shovel the top of the thing out ourselves because a professional was not available.
The company has been no help at all. They swear that the 500 gallon capacity is more than big enough for our family of 5 and that we should just be careful not to do more than two loads of laundry per day or run the dishwasher while someone showers. We follow their advice to a T. The company reps were not concerned upon hearing that our service provider just chucks the waste into the trees and bushes. They were also not willing to provide a new system, or a bigger system for our 4-bedroom house.
My friends with regular septic systems only have to have theirs pumped once every year and a half or so, and nothing spews out into the environment before the pump truck gets there.
I hope others thinking about installing a system like this will think twice. It's a terrible waste of money and causes a lot of nasty pollution.
Right now I'm pissed because we were supposed to be on a 6-month pumping schedule to avoid the overflow, and it hasn't even been 5 months yet and the overflow happened again last night. Brown sludge is cascading through our yard and down the hill, past the neighbor's house and into the wilderness. We can't flush our toilets, do the wash, or take showers until the thing is pumped out for another $185. It's Saturday, and thankfully my hero Craig from a local septic service is here to handle this situation.
The health department will be my next call. Has anyone else had trouble with this type of system???
