SludgeHammer introduces sophisticated microbiology to wastewater engineering. Our focus on the software, the SludgeHammer Blend™ bacterial inoculum, allows simple, elegant hardware designed to be introduced into conventional septic systems, converting them into the most cost-effective and biologically powerful wastewater treatment in the industry.




The SludgeHammer S-46 is designed for homes up to 4 bedrooms.  It restores failing leach fields, proactively protects existing septic systems, and can provide advanced treatment where NSF/ANSI Standard #40/Class 1 is not required. The SludgeHammer S-46 is part of our residential wastewater treatment product line.


The SludgeHammer Blend™ revolutionalizes residential septic system function. Soil absorbs waste through microbes in the ground that consume organic material. The microbes thrive in oxygen rich environments. Without oxygen, something called biomat is produced — a slime that clogs the soil. Clogged soil causes residential septic systems to fail, which means they can no longer treat the wastewater produced by your household.


It is estimated that 95% of all septic system failures are caused by biomat clogging. SludgeHammer technology is rigorously tested and certified to restore leach systems clogged by organic biomat at a rate of at least 2.5 times that of aerobic treatment alone through testing under IAPMO IGC180-2003. SludgeHammer is the ONLY technology on the market that holds the IAPMO standard.


Eliminate biomat clogging and optimize septic function with the SludgeHammer S-46.

  • Extend the life of new leach fields or drip irrigation systems

  • Drastically reduce the need for septic tank pumping

  • Decrease or eliminate destructive property repairs
