Did you know that worldwide, 80% of all infectious diseases may be water related?

and that contaminated water kill approximately 2 million children each year?



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 ingested.

How Can A SEPTIC DYE TEST KIT Prevent These Diseases?

The purpose of a septic dye test is to locate obvious, catastrophic septic system failure. During a septic dye test, fluorescent dye is flushed into 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.
