Aerobic Bacteria Generator (ABG)
Few things are more aggravating than a failing septic tank and replacing the tank was often the only option in the past. Today, however, there is an alternative to spending thousands on a full tank replacement – aerobic bacteria generators.
Aerobic bacteria generators (ABGs) are small devices, roughly three feet tall and weighing 50 pounds, that are placed at the bottom of your septic tank. The device then grows a specific species of aerobic bacteria that’s chosen to replace the lost bacteria in your tank. The generator is designed to grow bacteria at a very high speed, while preventing other bacteria from forming as the waste is broken down.
These systems are an integral part of septic tank regeneration and a simple way to save a tremendous amount of money when your tank isn’t operating as it should. If you’re interested in learning more how an aerobic bacteria generator may be the solution for your septic tank problems, call Ace Pelizon Plumbing today.

Septic System Problems
While the primary role of the aerobic bacteria generator is to regenerate the good bacteria in your tank responsible for breaking down solid waste, there is a second, even more important role. A failing septic system frequently suffers from a failing disposal field as well. This happens because the anaerobic bacteria from the failing tank build up on the surface of the field, creating a layer of biomat that blocks any liquid from being absorbed by the soil.
With an aerobic bacteria generator, the new bacteria are expelled into the drainage field to eat through that biomat and make it possible for the ground to once again absorb the liquid waste from your tank. Once the biomat is completely removed, which can take between a few weeks and a few months, the septic tank is fully restored and should continue to work for years to come.
Once your septic system is fully restored and because the aerobic bacteria generator is still present, it should continue to work properly in the future. The key is to have it inspected regularly to ensure that good bacteria are continuously produced. Staying on top of this type of routine maintenance is always recommended to extend the life of your septic system.
