How to remove the raw sewage outside

sewage smell from toilet

Unfortunately from time to time a sewer pipe breaks under the soil, and then feces and other waste seeps into the yard.
All the jobs we have been called out to, have had the sewer pipe repaired by a plumbers but most of them, do not know how to deal with the odor and the sewage waste remaining in the area.
Simple Solution for outside Sewage Seepage
If the sewage has seeped into the OUTSIDE living spaces, or under your house, then a simple solution is to cover the area in HYDRATED LIME.  Best to use the pellet variety rather than the cheaper powder as it will have less impact on you and the surrounding area.
Lime will consume the waste matter very quickly and then break down residues and become one with the soil. It also removes the odor instantly. this can often be the cause if the house smells like sewage also.
WARNING KEEP ANIMALS OFF AND CHILDREN as lime is very corrosive and will damage those that come in contact with it.
You need to cordon the area off and put signs up with WARNING HYDRATED LIME PRESENT. DO NOT ENTER.
The lime will break down the feces very quickly and remove the odor.
Avoid the lime with high powder content due to dangers with inhaling. Pellets like below are much better.

How to get rid of sulphur smells coming from a shower and in the bathroom.

Sulfur smells in your bathroom are generally caused by bacteria trapped in the drain and because no oxygen is present the sulphury smell keeps increasing. The best way to treat this is pour some of my formula down the drain and then wait for it to work.

How to remove sulfur smell from a drain

There are a few suggestions to get rid of the odor.
1. If you have access to the waste outlet i.e not the shower drain but the drain waste outside then you can pour my formula into the drain which will kill the bacteria and remove the smell. Ensure there is no blockage in the pipe such as trapped hair etc which may be preventing the waste water from flowing through. Tip the formula down the shower drain so that it eats anything stuck in the drain on the way down, plus kills the bacteria in the outside waste. This a safer and more effective method.

When you are finished, Ozone the vehicle to complete. Ozone is very effective for odor removal and can boost the whole process plus sterilize your whole home

How to remove poo odor in a long drop. Another Tip on sewage odors.

Unfortunately over time these can become very smelly and unpleasant to use. Here is a trade secret on how you can keep the odor down. You can also use HYDRATED LIME when camping for your in ground toilet (Long Drop). Never remove the air supply as dangerous gases will build up if no air can penetrate but Lime will eat all the feces and remove odors very quickly.

For those of you that don’t know what a long drop is here is a website devoted to them

They are favored by people camping out for a few weeks or as in the case above when the sewer is damaged by an earthquake. Basically you dig a very deep hole with a post hole borer and then place a toilet above it as shown.

How to remove the odor without Lime

Step No 1
Have a large fire going (you have these when you are camping anyway right?)

Step No 2
When the fire has died down grab a bucket of ashes onto a metal spade and tip these down the long drop hole (preferred when they are not red hot as you may cause damage to the toilet seats or surrounding structure)


Step No 3
Go and have a beer and enjoy the toilet next time you use it as the odor will be totally gone guaranteed.
