All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are conducting septic services today for customers with septic systems in Plympton, Stoughton, Plymouth, Carver, Marshfield and Hingham MA.
As part of some services for our customers we conduct testing which may include BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), TSS (Total Suspended Solids), NO2, NO3 and TKN (Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen) tests. It is important that all levels are correct in your septic system because any imbalance can result in it functioning incorrectly or inefficiently. For example one of the most commonly measured constituents of wastewater is the biochemical oxygen demand, or BOD. In your wastewater are a variety or organic and inorganic molecules. The organic molecules are mostly made up feces, grease, food particles, detergents, soaps and fats. These molecules are decomposed by bacteria in your septic system and oxygen is required by the bacteria to reduce this organic matter eventually to carbon dioxide and water,. The amount of oxygen required to do this process is known as the biochemical oxygen demand or BOD. Obviously the level of OBD is therefore important in a septic system.
