The Bottom Line: Use it once a month for a better working septic system. Pour it in one night, go to sleep and wake up the next morning with no septic worries.
Did you know that it is very important to treat your septic tank monthly? I didnt realize that either until we had some drainage problems. Several church members told us that we needed to do so and then of course hubby had an epiphany and realized that we should have been doing so as well!
Recommend this product?
However, it took a drainage problem to make him realize this hidden knowledge. MEN!
I truly had never really thought about the septic needing a cleaning because it is not a normal topic of conversation. Usually comes up when one has a problem. However, our septic tanks or cesspools do need bacteria to break down a portion of the solid waste we dispose of daily. Never even thought about that at all!
Now mind you I realize that grease is harmful to the septic and that is why I never pour grease down the drains, but, I dont give that other stuff thought at all. Well, I do now thanks to hubbys epiphany and I am glad that I do. It is a smart thing to do and will save you big bucks in the end.
We now use this product monthly: Rid X Septic System Treatment. It comes in a box and is easy to use. Simply pour the box into the toilet, flush twice and you are done. Now the big key here is to use this product when the toilet will or other plumbing will not be used for a while. If you are going to be gone all day is a good time to use it or before going to bed. This allows the product to work at its very best.
Use about 24 ounces a month. You can buy Rid X Septic System Treatment in a 24 oz box or larger. I believe at Home Depot you can get a really box of it.

How I Feel
I had no idea that large families can cause such wear and tear on the septic. Constant flushing, washing clothes. Even the beautiful white stuff that falls in the winter known as snow can cause problems. Never knew. Of course some of you probably know about that one living in colder areas than Florida. Now, flooding, well I am prone to that one but one never thinks about the septic until the flooding happens. Then of course you get all nervous and panicky about it. And of course if you wait for a huge problem, Rid X Septic System Treatment will not help at all. So we now try to use it regularly to keep a bigger problem from happening.
Over all we have a cleaner septic system now and overall that is a very good thing. Saves time and money in the long run. We have even notices that the grass is much greener than it already was around the septic and out along where the pipes run. However the grass is much thicker than usual and that makes the mowing a little bit tougher.
It is always a good feeling to take care of your family even for a topic that is not so pleasant.
I hope that this has helped in some kind of way.
