Septic Tank Treatment

3 posts in this topic

Hello all, I was wondering if I could get some much needed advice on the best and proper septic tank/system treatment product. I have tried Ridex before but I am unsure if it is the best, I have heard bad things about it so I thought I would ask the experts. Doing searches here in the forums, I found a few references to Biodegreat from Shaklee, but now they don't list that as a product or seem to sell it anymore. Can anyone recommend a good product to keep a septic system happy? I would be grateful for any information you can share, and I thank you for the help!

First, clean off all fats and oils and the like from dinnerware before washing. Avoid commercial drain uncloggers (Draino and the like), use a laundry lint-catching sock to trap washing machine lint expelled in the wash water (very important) and when needed you can use CLS for treatment. If you aren't doing the aforementioned, then there is no need to use a treatment as your septic will be damned from the start. Oh, and periodically pump the tank (every 2-3 years as required) as it's rather cheap insurance.

Thanks for the info. I did not know about using a lint catching sock for the washer, I will have to check into that. Sorry for my ignorance, but what is CLS?
