Regularly treating your system with Septic System Digester will extend the time between pump outs and prevent system failure by breaking down and digesting fats, oils, grease, paper and solid waste buildup inside your septic system.
We occasionally hear from consumers who tell us that they’ve heard that it is unnecessary to treat a septic system with a treatment like Septic System Digester. Here’s the deal: in theory, septic systems shouldn’t need any help breaking down waste if they are being used correctly, and as they were designed. Unfortunately, just by living a normal home-life in our modern world we routinely do things that shouldn’t be done in septic systems - things that can lead to sewage backups, costly repairs, and frequent, expensive pump outs. For example, things like dishwashers, garbage disposals, long showers, back-to-back loads of laundry, excessive water use by guests, the use of antibacterial soaps or cleaners, and infrequent tank maintenance are all very much a reality for the average septic user. Most of these problems didn’t exist when septic systems were introduced - thus the reason why you may have been told you don’t need to treat your system.
Here is the honest reality: Because we tend to overuse (and often unintentionally abuse) our systems we need to supplement them, so they can maintain working at peak performance.
High quality septic treatments, like Septic System Digester release targeted bacteria and enzymes which are specially developed to break down solid waste inside your holding tank, plumbing lines, and septic field. The bacteria and enzymes target fats, oils, grease, and paper waste. When you use Septic System Digester you can rest assured knowing that the waste inside your system is breaking down rapidly and effectively, which means you’ll avoid the hassles of sewage backups, system failure, or all-too-frequent pump outs.
So, technically speaking you don’t have to treat your tank - if you’re living like it’s 1750. But let’s be honest, you’re probably living a very comfortable life in your home and to keep it free from sewage issues, you’ll need to regularly treat your system with Septic System Digester.
We recommend adding Septic System Digester to the toilet that is furthest from your septic tank. This allows Septic System Digester to clean your plumbing lines and pipes as it travels to your septic tank.
The Septic System Digester Liquid is great for households with average system use. This is our best selling (and original) septic treatment.
The Septic System Digester Drop-in Pods are designed to match the timing and movement of water and waste as they travel through your septic tank. On average, it takes between 3 and 7 days for water and waste to fully flow through your septic tank. As the water and waste flows out, naturally some bacteria is lost. The drop-in pods are designed to keep your bacteria and enzyme counts inside your tank consistently elevated by adding more bacteria and enzymes each week. This product is a good match for anyone who is intentional about septic system maintenance and wants to go the extra mile to ensure their system is working at peak performance.
The Septic System Digester Puck provides your septic system with the maximum protection against accidental "bacteria abuse.” For example, if you have to do multiple loads of laundry in one day, or if you use antibacterial soaps and cleaners, this product is best for you. By utilizing a flush-release formula, the puck protects your septic system with fresh bacteria each time you flush the toilet. This product is great for families, anyone that tends to put heavier than normal strain on their septic system, or anyone who wants to give their system the maximum protection against issues.
Don’t get hung up on choosing the “perfect” version of Septic System Digester. All of our treatments are going to provide your system with unparalleled strength and complete-system protection. What it really boils down to for most consumers is choosing the method you most prefer to do. Do you like the idea of pouring your treatment in the toilet once per month? Or, adding it weekly? Or, do you like the idea of consistent treatment with every flush?
There are no wrong answers, so have fun choosing the option that best works for you!
One of the many benefits of treating your septic system with Septic System Digester is the ability to use any brand or type of toilet paper. Septic System Digester breaks down and digests all organic material - including toilet paper - so you can rest easy knowing that your preferred brand of toilet paper isn’t damaging your septic system.
We highly recommend that you do not use antibacterial hand soaps, dish soaps, or cleaners that may find their way down your sink, shower, toilet, or tub drains. Antibacterial products strain your septic system by killing the beneficial bacteria that keep your system operating at peak performance.
