      Help! We have lived in this house for 2+ years (we built it in 1998) and have had septic odors since the beginning. We can sometimes smell it in the house, but can always smell it outside when we even wash 1 load of clothes or take 1 shower. We have tried using chemicals made for septic systems, and we’ve tried leaving it alone. Nothing seems to help. We’ve had a plumber check our vents and they seem okay. What else can we do or not do?

      Dear Bbray,

      This is a common problem that can be easily and cost effectively solved by the use of Bacteria Concepts’ SEPTI-MATE and SEPTI-SHOCK.

      When used on a regular basis, these products help to greatly reduce or
      eliminate bad odors from the septic tank, slows down the sludge build-up
      process, maintains proper biological activity of the septic tank and where
      applicable, keeps leach fields free-flowing. Thus, the source of the problem
      is targeted.

      If the odors are caused by organic waste build-ups in the drain pipes, you
      can use Bacteria Concepts’ DB-X100 on a regular basis to keep drain
      free-flowing and choke free. Since the live bacteria in DB-X100 degrade the
      organics in the pipes, the source of bad odors is also removed. For regular
      maintenance, a dosage of about 2 – 4oz. (60 – 120ml) needs to be applied
      into affected drain pipes, two to three times a week.

      We encourage you to contact us to order some product as a cost effective
      means to solve the problem.

      You will also receive detailed instructions on how to use the product to
      solve any problems you may be facing.

      Bacteria Concepts manufactures the highest quality bacterial products on the
      market. Each contains a scientific blend of multiple strains of naturally
      occurring active bacteria, which function precisely to solve a specific
      problem. The blend is synergistic, which means that all strains are
      compatible with each other and compliment each others activity. The strains
      are chosen to be highly resistant to disinfectants, sanitizers, and to hot
      water. This feature permits their use in any normal home, commercial or
      industrial environment without imposing undo restrictions on accepted
      methods or on personnel. All bacteria strains used are non-pathogenic (i.e.
      they do not cause disease) and thus, will not harm humans and pets.

      Bacteria Concepts products are non-toxic, biodegradable and hence,
      environmentally friendly.

      Best regards,

      We have a similar odor, inside our house and we do not have a septic tank system. We are on a municipal system. House is 10 yrs old and for past year we’ve had random bursts of terrible sewage smells throughout the house. We’ve put water in all drains but the smells return — in the middle of last night I awoke to the smell. I opened windows, ran fans, poured bleach in all drains, ran water in all drains, did laundry, ran dishwasher; all in an attempt to make sure the water was flowing so gas did not back up. In another hour, the stench started again. The stench lasts about 5 minutes and dissipates but will return. Any suggestions?

      If you still have this problem, A&M Bio-Filters manufactures a charcoal activated vent filtration system, ODORHOG, that will eliminate this problem.
