GOOD Bacteria vs. Anti-Bacterial Products
Septic tanks safely treat and recycle wastewater through the use of a surprisingly simple system, basically powered by nothing more than gravity, fluid dynamics and bacteria. That's right: good bacteria are essential to the proper functioning of your septic tank by breaking down waste solids.
We're accustomed to viewing bacteria in a negative light, as demonstrated by the abundance of disinfectants, sanitizers and anti-bacterial products in every home. Since these products routinely go down the drain in the process of household cleaning and deodorizing, especially in the bathroom, they can have the side effect of killing off the beneficial bacteria your septic tank needs. The failure of "dead" septic tanks is an increasing problem.
But septic tank owners don't have to avoid using anti-bacterial products. Adding Bio-Active once a month restores the good worker bacteria and enzymes to counteract the effects of household disinfectants. Bio-Active makes it easy to maintain a clean and sanitized home environment as well as a healthy bacteria population in your septic tank.
Use of Bio-Active restores the biological population of good worker 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.
