Aeration Septic Tank Sludge Problem?

I have a three year old aeration type septic system the aeration jets are working in the front part of the system properly.

The problem is at the pipe where the water is passing thru the chlorine tablets, there is a sludge build up right at this pipe, it seems to almost be a dead spot in this system, I have been treating this sludge with rid-x and some of the the products out there for septic tanks, even to the point of skimming off some of the sludge to measure the thickness of it.

It seems that no matter what you do it is of no avail.

The tank is of concrete design.

The manufacturer of this tank doesn’t have a clue as to why this sludge is building up at this point.

There is just a widow lady living there, and she uses the system very sparingly, no harsh stuff is put in the system.

I am getting to the point where I am thinking of bringing an airline from the aeration part of the tank around and put into the side where this sludge is building up to see if some aeration helps to keep the sludge from building up so much.

Any help you can suggest would help, or if someone else has had this problem to hear from them would help.
