What is a Septic Tank Additive and How Does it Work?

Posted


Septic systems utilize naturally developing bacteria that currently inhabits wastewater. Home or business owners that utilize their septic system in a certain way, can harm these helpful bacteria, thereby, rendering them ineffective in the tank. Septic Safe tank additive can protect the bacteria in your entire septic system and help the waste break down as it should.

Substances that are Harmful to Bacteria

Everyday household items that are commonly poured or flushed down the drain are some of the greatest inhibitors to good bacteria growth. These chemically-based liquids, interact destroy bacteria. The result is septic tank filled with solids that eventually clog up the system. Some of these substances including anti-bacterial soaps and cleansers, industry-grade chemicals, and all types of bleach. We’ve also discovered that large doses of medication flushed down the drain can reduce bacteria population in a relatively short period.

How do Our Additives Work?

To solve this dilemma, we recommend using CCLS Septic Tank & Cesspool Additive This amazing product keeps the septic system running properly and helps break down solids where it’s needed most. You’ll notice a difference in your tank, plumbing lines, drains, and traps. CCLS is made from natural bacteria and enzymes, which break down organic buildup. It won’t corrode, combust, and it is fully biodegradable. It is also completely safe to use in garbage disposals.

Grease Trap Additive

In addition to our septic tank additive, we recommend that you also try DrainMaster Concentrated Drain Cleaner. The drain cleaner has the same effect on grease as the septic additive as on chemicals. Since the majority of grease traps do not contain natural bacteria, the additive can supplement the bacteria and go to work to break down the grease as well as reduce the bad odors that linger in grease traps. All you have to do is add warm water when pouring it down the drain. It only takes a few applications for the additive to work in your grease trap.
