The biggest issues related to aeration issues are both mechanical breakdown (if the expensive aerated septic tank aerator doesn’t work anymore), or when homeowners are trying to cut energy usage somehow either by disconnecting or removing the aerated septic system from their home. The most common type of aeration septic system problem is a blockage, which occurs when a drain line (usually a storm water drain) is clogged with soil, rocks, or other debris.

A typical aerated system works by creating a permeable layer of air in your septic tank to allow waste water and solid matter to move freely through it. Once the drain line is blocked, bacteria and organic material can enter the drain pipes and eventually clog them, causing clogs that will eventually lead to blocked drains and sewage backups.
To fix a clog, the simplest way to resolve the issue is to simply replace a part of the drain line or to perform a more complicated and expensive aeration setup process. A simple replacement or change may involve adding a new drain line and using an inexpensive plunger to break up debris that’s stuck in the drain pipes. Another option involves changing out the aerated tank itself, though this option can be costly and requires extensive labor, skill, and a lot of expertise.
