3 Reasons to Use a Septic System Additive

Incorporating a Septic system additive into your maintenance plan is important. It offers a variety of benefits that can save you a lot of money! From keeping your tank healthier, to preventing backups and more. We recommend incorporating an additive like Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment to all of our customers.

Septic System Additive

1. Help keep your system healthy.
If you use anti-bacterial soaps or flush harsh cleaners down the drain, you may be destroying the healthy bacteria in your septic tank. These bacteria are necessary to break down solids and process waste. An additive contains the right kind of bacteria to restore balance and keep your tank functioning properly. Additives break down solids and waste so your tank drains properly which makes it easy to pump every 2-4 years. Using an additive is especially important if your tank has a history of backups or problems. An additive can help regulate these issues by regulating your tank’s bacteria levels.
2. Extend the life of your septic system. 
If your system is old or you’re not sure how often it was pumped by previous owners, an additive is a cost efficient part of any routine maintenance plan. Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment can restore the balance in your septic tank so it can continue functioning properly for years to come. A new septic system is a major expense, so an additive like Bio-Active is a cost-effective way to support the system you have.
3. Save you money.
Keeping your system healthy with a product like Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment can save you money on service and repairs. When your system is working properly, backups are unlikely.  This means avoiding heavy fees and additional costs associated with pumping solid wastes. Also, if your system needs to be replaced, Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment can help extend the life of your current system until you’re ready to make that investment.
How Does it Work?
Monthly use of Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment will help reduce surface and bottom solids in the septic tank. Buildup of surface and bottom solids can carry over to the leach field and cause the leach field to become clogged. Once clogged, the system has nowhere to drain and the tank fills up, causing backup in the home and wet areas in the yard.
Use of Maxx’s Products’t Septic Treatment  also restores the biological population of healthy bacteria and enzymes which reduce solids. The beneficial bacteria also get carried over to the leach field to reduce solids and help prevent clogging. A clogged leach field is the biggest problem for septic systems, the hardest and most costly to repair.
