Does your septic tank stink?
Worried about overflow?
Tired of emptying your septic tank?
Ran out of space for construction?
Want to treat & recycle the water?
Wastewater management is complex, and traditional septic tanks often add to the challenge. At Ekam, we have understood these issues and developed solutions that not only address concerns but also comply with legal and environmental standards.
Conventional concrete or fiberglass septic tanks are build underground and operate in absense of air. Our retrofit solutions seamlessly integrate with existing buildings and align planning and landscaping for exceptional results. Central to our method is anaerobic bacterial culture, which is crucial for turbidity reduction. At the same time, the use of bacteria breaks down the sludge into methane and carbon dioxide. These resilient bacteria are able to withstand extreme conditions, thrive in a changing pH and temperature environment, and are biogas-producing microorganisms.
Ekam not only solves the challenge, but does so in a sustainable manner. Our solutions combine innovation and compliance, creating a future where sewers operate seamlessly while meeting environmental standards.
Anaerobic bacteria culture can play a vital role in the sludge digestion in the septic tank. This helps in reduction of the settled sludge volume by slowly eating into the matter. The process of aerobic digestion breaks down the sludge into simpler compounds like methane and carbon dioxide. These bacteria are less sensitive to changes in pH and temperature, making them reliable in harsh conditions like at the bottom of septic tanks.
Commonly used bacteria for anaerobic sludge digestion includes Clostridium, Desulfovibrio and Methanobacterium. They work together in a complex ecosystem breaking down organic matter and produces biogas as a byproduct

Causes of decline in microbial activity in septic tanks
Harsh Chemicals - The use of harsh chemicals and strong detergents in washrooms can kill off the beneficial bacteria in the septic tank.
Antibiotics and Medications - Flushing antibiotics, medications or pharmaceuticals down the toilet can negatively impact the septic tank’s bacterial population.
Grease and Fats - Pouring large amounts of grease, cooking oils and fats down the drain can coat the surface of the tank and inhibit microbial activity.
Non - Biodegradable items - Flushing non bio – degradable items such as plastic, sanitary products, diapers and paper towels can clog the system and create inefficiency in the biological breakdown of sewage.
Excessive Water Usage - High water usage can flush out bacteria from the tank before they have a chance to break down the waste. It can also prevent proper settling and separation of solids in the tank.
Steps to ensure efficient microbial/bacterial activity in septic tanks
Use water efficiently – the less water you put into the tank, the less the work the bacteria have to do.
Properly dispose of waste - Only flush human waste and toilet paper down the toilet. Do not flush feminine hygiene products, diapers, or other materials that can damage the septic system.
Avoid harsh chemicals – it is recommended to use biodegradable cleaning liquids for cleaning washrooms and toilets
Inspect your septic tank and drainfield regularly to identify problems and issues at the earliest.
