WHY SHOULD YOU USE A SEPTIC DYE TEST KIT
Septic tank systems are the largest of all contributors of
wastewater to the ground and are the most frequently reported sources of
groundwater contamination in the United States. Bacteria, viruses, and parasites
(including worms and protozoans) are the types of pathogens in wastewater that
are hazardous to humans. Fungi that can cause skin, eye, and respiratory
infections also grow in sewage and sewage sludge. These bacteria and viruses may
be transported very rapidly and could contaminate nearby drinking water supplies
or recreational surface water and your homes top soil.
Bacteria are microscopic organisms that are responsible for several
wastewater related diseases, including typhoid, paratyphoid, bacillary
dysentery, gastroenteritis, and cholera.
The types of parasites found in wastewater include protozoans and
parasitic worms. When people drink water contaminated with protozoans, they can
multiply inside the body and cause mild to severe diarrhea. Another protozoan is
the cause of amebiosis, also known as amebic dysentery. Parasitic worms can also
dwell in untreated sewage. Tapeworms and roundworms are the most common types
found in the U.S. Their eggs are found in untreated wastewater and can be
How Can A SEPTIC DYE TEST KIT Prevent These Diseases?
The purpose of a septic dye test is to locate obvious, catastrophic

the system. This is followed by an inspection of nearby surface areas and
waters. If the dye can be seen in nearby surface waters, well drinking water or
your homes top soil, the septic system is failing.
