Environmentally Safe Septic Additives ???

Asked by squareoak (2points) October 18th, 2007

I’ve read/heard about chemical additives for septic tanks that will help break down septic waste. I’m trying to figure out if this product is environmentally friendly and safe to use. It’s called PowerPAC. Found here: Does anyone have experience with this product? Is it safe for my tank?

Not familiar with that brand but check to see if it uses bacteria to break down waste. If it uses bacteria instead of chemicals it is safe.

Some States have a Sanitary Code that prohibits additives except certain products that they have approved. You may want to check out that list first.

A bacteria based product is the way to go, especially if it is live bacteria.

There is new technology that is a combination of bacteria and aeration. The use of this technology depends on what you are trying to accomplish (general maintenance or system recovery).

I have some further information on septic system on my web site
