What does it cost to maintain


I purchased a home with an Aerobic septic system 20 years ago and had no idea how to maintain it. I had to educate myself and I found there were almost no resources, publications, or video courses on it. After 20 years of keeping up with my own system I created this course to help others.  This course is set up to help homeowners with Aerobic septic systems understand how they work and what they need to know to keep them working for decades. What you learn can be applied to other simpler septic systems and will teach about what happens to wastewater in general. The learner will get a understanding of the multiple tanks in a Aerobic systems, the pumps, compressors and alarms on the system. The learner will get information on selecting and replacing a compressor when that is needed. The learner will find out how to know the system is working properly and what to check when it is not. The learner will be able to check and clean sprinklers, replace the filter on the compressor and know when the system needs to be pumped out. The learner will also get a basic understanding of system costs.  If the learner wants certification the links are provided for for the Texas A&M certification course.
