drain field in-line chlorinator


I have occasional odor from what I think is a dry well. It's a n 1890 house.
There are no wet spots but the area's frequently moist from run-off as it's a low area. A contractor said that since the problem doesn't seem very bad an in-line tablet type chlorinator installed after the septic tank (which is new) would get rid of the odor. Make sense? Thanks.

Better off with an enzyme injector.

Obviously, you know and I don't. Checked out the Viking enzyme injector, seems total overkill. This is for a house with zero odor issues near the house.
The occasional odor is 75ft away near what is probably a dry well; the house is old and we just don't know for sure. Anyway, the question is whether an in-line chlorinator will work for minor odors. Again, thanks.

No it wont. is that clear enough. not gonna bother with an explanation obviously with all that reading you should know what causes the smells. lets see lets install a chlorination injecting system in to a septic system Humm? unless you have an aerobic system ,then it would already have one..the contractor who told you that is way off base very bad advise. not to mention that the smell may not be related to the septic run off.

The chlorine will kill the bacteria that makes a septic system work-----for the best advice call in a septic system company----either the person you are dealing with has--limited knowledge---or you misunderstood him.
