    Q: How does RID-X® work?
    A: RID-X® Septic System Treatment contains billions of 100% natural active bacteria and enzymes to break down household waste. By adding RID-X®, you restore the delicate balance of beneficial bacterial and enzymes needed to help keep your system operating at full efficiency. Each box and bottle of RID-X® contains the following ingredients scientifically proven to break down household waste:
    • Cellulase: Toilet paper, vegetable matter, and some foods
    • Lipase: Fats, oils and grease
    • Protease: Proteins
    • Amylase: Starches
    Q: Will RID-X® unclog my drain/pipes/toilet?
    A: No, however, when used regularly, RID-X® liquid can help break down organic build-up in your pipes, to help prevent clogs before they happen.

    Q: Can the bacteria in RID-X® infect a person who touches it?
    A: The bacteria in RID-X® are all natural and beneficial to your septic system, and not harmful to people.

    If the toilet has a blockage, it needs to be plunged or augered.
    Liquid Plumber is not the right thing to put down a toilet.
