The annual inspection season of DBO Expert’s wastewater treatment systems is officially closed.
During this time, some 15 Quebec engineering students were fully trained on the Advanced Enviro))Septic wastewater technology at the heart of all System O)) solutions, and they accumulated four months of experience in wastewater treatment.
DBO Expert is committed, year after year, to train the industry’s next generation and offer pertinent and stimulating internships to Québec’s future engineers.
A normal water level
With absolute transparency, DBO Expert is proud to share with you the results of this year’s inspections of nearly 8,000 septic systems.
In 2021, then, 99.1% of the septic systems inspected were found to have a normal water level.
This means that, when DBO Expert inspectors visited the site, the three key factors to the proper functioning of their septic system were all present; that is, aeration, retention time within the pipes and the percolation rate in the sand.
- A septic system is designed for a specific average pollutant load. We must make sure to only introduce appropriate non-hazardous elements to system, to protect the microorganisms that are responsible for treating the water.
- A septic system is also designed for a specific daily flow. Avoid excessive water use or large water discharge from a sump pump, pool or any other equipment generating a significant volume of water that was unintended when the system was sized. In this sense, plumbing leaks should also be fixed immediately.
In over 99% of cases, clients under contract for DBO Expert’s septic systems, with Advanced Enviro))Septic technology, have a septic system that works perfectly.
The proper functioning of a septic system is the result of many factors. A septic system’s longevity can be assured with a careful design taking into consideration the general environment around the system, with good installation methods and materials, with the responsible use of the system, and with the immediate attention to excessive water use or plumbing leaks.
