In response to Re: septic tank additive
: Do the septic tank additves that claim to be good preventive measures to dissolve solids actually work?
: Will they harm? I know you plumbers out there just say no to drano and that type of stuff. Is this in that catagory? I don't have drain problems ----yet.
: Thanks, einstein
A properly installed septic tank should need no additives at all. Periodic "pumpouts" are advised every 3-5 years(depending on the number of users) to remove any solids that do not break down. Also, cutting down on the use of detergents, soap, garbage, will avoid frequent pumpouts. Use a quality toilet tissue that will break down easily when wet. Good luck, Hube
