Finding The Best Septic Tank Product
There are many septic maintenance products available out there in the market. How should you choose among them?
- Inorganic additives – These are generally strong acids or alkalis, may seem useful for their ability to open clogged drains. They contain similar ingredients to popular drain cleaners and can destroy the biological function of your septic tank, sterilizing it and causing issues.
- Organic solvents – These contain concentrated amounts of chemicals used for degreasing machine parts due to their effectiveness at breaking down oils and grease.
- Biological additives – These combine enzymes and bacteria to work to enhance the existing biota in septic tanks to give a headstart for new systems or to augment stressed systems.
