What could be wrong with my septic system. I had a new system installed 6wks ago. Now for the past month when the water is run I get a sewer gas smell in the house that will go away within 5 min?
It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipes on the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find a particularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes) you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor vent is the equivalent to a one-way air valve that only allows air to pass, or be drawn, into the pipe, so that sewer gases will be greatly reduced. You don't even have to use pipe cement/adhesive to secure the Studor Vent.

What could be wrong if there is a strong sewer gas smell whenever any of the faucets or shower is running and the water pressure has decreased significantly?
Answer . Is there a floor drain or any other drain nearby that is not used often? Sometimes the p-trap in a drain will dry out and allow sewer gas to escape. The smell beco…mes more intense when hot water goes down the drain.
Answer . The two systems should not be connected. Could the construction have shaken the pipes and knocked the rust loose? (Assuming that you have galvanized steel pipes). … If that is the case, run the water until it is clear. Turn the water heater off, and drain the tank and refill after you have cleared the pipes.

What is wrong if you are on a septic stystem and have installed a pit and ejector effluent pump in the basement with a vertical check valve and are suddenly getting a strong sewer smell sometimes?

DISCHARGING WASTEWATER TO SEWER . Sewage from all points of source in a house will be collected in a single ground level collection pit within the house premises which will… be connected to the public sewer by pipes laid underground to convey the sewage.. A silt trap with a silt bucket will also be installed in the system to remove the silt carried by sewage and accumulated in the pit before the sewage flow into the house service connection pipes to prevent clogging of pipes.
Yes, any number can ... BUT it has to designed to work with that load, you can't just add load without redesigning the system.

If you have a septic system, you are generally outside the city limits. So your water is probably not city water, it's well water from your own or a shared well.
A sewer is a common drain line that connects multiple lines or houses that the city maintains. Septic tank is for one house that in on that property and the owner maintains.
Could it affect your well if someone down the road put in a new septic system and they dug so deep it was close to the water table?
It depends on the direction that the water table is running. If a septic system is up hill to your water supply, it could contaminate your water supply. Water is purified as i…t goes through the soil though so it also depends on how far away the two item are. I assume you are in the county and so you can call them and have them come out and get a water sample and check it or you can go to the county and get a pre-qualified sample bottle and fill it yourself and get it back to them. ANS 2 - For the past few years, almost anywhere in north America you have not been allowed to put in a new septic field without proper planning and engineering and environmental approvals. It's highly unlikely the above scenario could happen unless they did it illegally. -A call to city engineering is all you need to clear it up. - Regarding testing for purity, every well owner should do this every year for their own safety anyway. It only costs around $20 for the basic test.
