Regulations for septic systems are all set at the municipal level. With limited information on how and why septic systems are failing and new information on how leach field soils and sea levels are impacting pollution, there has been no concurrence on the best approach to regulate septic systems. With every device deployed, IoTank is gathering data on how and why septic systems are failing enabling more effective regulations.
When septic systems are not maintained, solids will exit the tank clogging the leach field and decreasing the effectiveness of the soil filtration process causing more nutrients and solids to reach the water level. IoTank prevents this pollution by ensuring septic systems are maintained and used properly.
Maintaining Operating Costs For Drinking Water
Failing septic systems result in nutrient pollution in waterways. Nutrient pollution is difficult and costly to remove, resulting in significantly higher operating costs for producing drinking water.
Maintaining Healthcare Costs
As solids from leach fields enter the waterways, the solids may contain E.coli, Legionnaire's disease or any number of preventable waterborne diseases resulting in major healthcare costs.
Maintaining Existing Revenue Streams
Nutrient pollution creates algae blooms that kill all life, negatively impacting the supply of wildlife in the waterway. This impacts revenue from commercial fisheries, recreational fishing, and recreational water activities.
Decreased Operating Costs
IoTank integrates hardware and software together to simplify septic maintenance, enforcement, and coordination across all stakeholders.
Managing Inspection Process
IoTank manages coordination of inspections and enforcement of inspections for septic systems for you. When a septic system needs maintenance, a pumper is automatically deployed.
Eliminate Septic Subsidy Programs
As leach fields are protected from bio-matting or other failures, this eliminates the need for subsidies and other respective programs needed to rehabilitate failing septic systems.
Reduced Inspector Training
IoTank’s simplified install process and data significantly decreases the steps in the standard inspection process. The result is a significant decrease in the time needed to train and certify pumpers on the inspection process.
Many municipalities have different approaches on how they regulate septic systems in their jurisdiction because there is limited data on why and how septic systems fail today. IoTank gathers and aggregates data from a variety of tanks in a variety of environments.
IoTank provides recommendations for the most effective regulations. Recommendations are based on data integrated from multiple sources including the septic pumper, weather conditions, soil conditions, and septic usage.
IoTank is utilizing machine learning algorithms to predict septic behaviors and failure conditions. This offloads the research needed for your department to stay up to date with this constantly changing market.
