The Role of Bacteria in a Septic Tank System
Bacteria gets a bad rap sometimes. Killing off too much bacteria can have an adverse affect on immune systems. Of course bacteria can also be a source of illness or infection. It does however play a crucial role in the Organic Process of breaking down, decomposing and treating Human Waste Materials. Naturally Occurring Bacteria in human waste is the backbone of How a Septic System Works.
