For a septic tank to work properly, bacteria must be active. Bacteria are present in many household wastes, but many home care products, such as toilet cleaners, detergents, and bleach, can destroy them. We have found that Bio-Clean® is a great product to use as a supplement because it contains millions of helpful bacteria necessary for the health of your septic system.
Items to Never Flush
There are certain items that could irreparably harm your system. Never dispose of acids, polishes, caustic drain cleaners, oil, paint, diapers, and feminine products into your septic system.
