Will Pirana work in a single chamber septic tank?
The process works exactly the same whether you have a single chamber
tank or a two-chamber tank. Two chamber tanks are becoming increasingly
popular with state regulators because their design is better suited to
retain solids in the tank. This is the reason we show two chamber tanks
in our installation photos and on other parts of our web site.
How do I know Pirana will work for me?
operation of a septic system is the same wherever you live. The tank
type may be different, for example concrete versus plastic; the drain
field may be different, for example lateral lines versus a leaching pit
and the soil type is likely to vary, for example sandy loam soil versus
clay but no matter these differences septic failure is likely due to
the soil becoming clogged with bio-mat. Pirana was designed to
unclog your drain field and restore it to normal operation. If you
drain field functioned for a reasonable period of its design life
expectancy, the Pirana will restore your drain field to functionality.
Pirana sounds pretty good. But what
exactly can it
A Pirana System installed
by us will:
eliminate foul odors and sewer smells.
eliminate corrosive sewer gases
that corrode and destroy concrete
tanks, which is a primary cause of tank
collapse and failure.*
eliminate the slimy biomat clogging
your leach field.
eliminate drain and toilet back
ups caused by slow draining leach
restore your leach field to better
What guarantee do I have that Pirana will work?
We offer you a full money back guarantee if Pirana does
not solve the problem of bio-mat clogging in soil within six months of
installation. Click here to read our Guarantee.
Oh, and by the way, Pirana comes with a Lifetime Warranty; if
anything goes wrong with your Pirana just give us a call and we send you
a brand new one.

How long does Pirana take to work?
depends on several factors but generally speaking it's going to happen
a lot faster on systems that have recently failed versus those that
have been in failure for two or three years.
Pirana starts to work immediately after you complete the
installation. You'll begin to see a noticeable difference in your
septic tank within 24 hours. Any septic odors usually disappear within
Once the bacteria colony has established itself in your tank they will
start to digest organic solids and within 30 days you should see a
difference in the clarity of the liquid in your tank.
At this stage you should also see good bacteria growth indicating out bacteria have "taken off". Here's a photograph of good bacteria growth:
Now it's a question of time; we have to allow time for the bacteria to
make their way to your drain field where they will begin the
restoration process. Here, some common sense has to prevail. If your
system has taken 20 years to fail, it's unlikely to recover overnight!
You should begin to see abatement of your symptoms within 30 days and a
definite improvement within 90 days. This is not an exact science! We
have seen some systems recover in as little as two weeks while others
have taken up to 90 days.
How long will it take for
we confirm by an onsite visit that your system is a candidate for Pirana (and
are), we take a deposit and schedule the installation.

it takes about 6 to 12 hours to
complete the job.
Do I have to keep adding chemicals?
Pirana generates environmentally safe
and people friendly bacteria. You normally
never need to add anything, ever again.
There are no chemicals involved whatsoever.
How does The
Pirana acts as an incubator to grow bacteria that work in two ways to restore your drain field.
First, they "digest" organic solids in your septic tank. This
includes human waste, oils and grease, toilet paper etc., in fact any
organic material. This does not happen in a conventional septic system
where these solids either settle to the bottom of the tank as sludge or
float to the top to form a scum level.
Second, these bacteria get suspended in the liquid leaving you septic
tank and get carried out to your drain field and subsequently to the
soil where they start "chewing away" at the crud ("biomat") that has
built up in your soil after years of use. Now it's just a question of
time before they "eat" enough crud to open up your drain field.
This is a completely natural process and environmentally friendly. There are no chemicals involved whatsoever.
Why hasn't my septic contractor heard of Pirana?
question! The new technology called Aerobic Bacteria Benerator ("ABG")
has been around for eight years.
technology is accepted and approved for installation in most states.
Due to the low cost of installation and low profit margin, many
contractors ignore the technology.
One of our early goals in developing Pirana was to provide
homeowners like you with a safe, affordable alternative the high cost and disruptions
of traditional methods; We install Pirana
which will restore your existing drain field. Prior to this your only option
was to dig up your drain field and replace it; a dramatically more
expensive, time consuming and disruptive process.
Many contractors FEAR change in the industry. They feel threatened by
changes. Pirana is a very big change and requires a whole new
thinking about failed septic systems. After hearing about the ABG
technology some contractors are afraid of it.
We have a long, proven track record that supports our claims about Pirana and have a money back guarantee to uphold them.

Will Pirana work in a cesspool?
The process works exactly the same as it would in a septic tank. We
have a separate cesspool model designed for cesspool installation. We will determine
the type design best suited for you cesspool.
if I have broken pipes?
fix your structural problems or tell you
what needs to be fixed. After repairs are
done we can install Pirana in a day or so.
have a grease trap at my location. Will
Pirana work on grease traps?
traps are a special situation. Call us to
discuss a solution that will work for you.
Certain factors are beyond Pirana's ability
to remedy, including structural problems,
broken or clogged leach lines, the collapse of tanks
previously weakend by years of corrosive
gas, etc. These items must be repaired
before we can commence any remediation efforts
