ACTIVE Septic Tank Treatment FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Your septic system is a critical component of your home, so you probably have some questions about what you’re putting inside it.

Yes, our treatment pods are 100% safe. They’re filled with dormant non-pathogenic bacteria cultivated right here in the United States.

For storage purposes and safety the bacteria is in a dormant state. Once exposed to moist conditions, the bacteria “wakes up” and begins to digest the waste in your septic system.

These pods are not plastic. They are covered with a water soluble wrapper that dissolves quickly when exposed to moisture allowing the bacteria to start working.

Simply flush one pod down the toilet once per month – that’s it! Just remember to stay on schedule and let ACTIVE Septic Tank Treatment do the rest.

Yeast is just a fungus and does not break down the proteins, grease, and paper found in septic systems the same way as our blend of bacteria.

ACTIVE Septic Tank Treatment Usage Guide

Maintaining Your Septic System With ACTIVE

A well-maintained septic tank is crucial when it comes to waste management; it’ll also prevent costly repairs in the future.

Importance of Septic System Maintenance

active septic tank treatment pods replace systemMore than 20 percent of U.S. households rely on these systems as an alternative to municipal wastewater systems.

Despite that, many people remain unaware or indifferent about the importance of proper maintenance.

For example, clogs and leaks can occur if your septic tank isn’t maintained properly. Not only would that lead to costly repairs but it could also lead to a complete replacement, which is very expensive process.

Potential Consequences: From Leaks To Strong Sewage Smells

A poorly-maintained system won’t just cause functional problems; it can have environmental implications too.

For example, untreated sewage—which is filled with harmful pathogens—can leak back into the environment, harming both humans and animals.

Not only that but it can also cause strong sewage smells to develop.

If you notice an unpleasant odor emanating from your property, chances are, there are underlying issues with your home’s wastewater drainage line.

How Do Septic Systems Work?

active septic tank treatment inside tankA septic system primarily consists of two integral parts: the septic tank and leach field. The journey begins with wastewater flowing from your household drainage line into the septic tank, which acts as a holding area for waste material.

Inside the tank, solids settle at the bottom while lighter substances float on top.

In between these layers lies mostly water along with dissolved particles that neither sink nor float. This liquid waste eventually gets released into your leach field dispersal system.

Bacteria in Conventional Septic Systems

The efficacy of a septic system relies heavily on certain types of natural bacteria present within the tank itself.

These microscopic organisms play a crucial role in the anaerobic digestion process, aka the breaking down of solid wastes.

Potent cleaning solutions like bleach or harsh drain cleaners pose a threat to these beneficial bacteria by killing them off when they enter through drains or toilets; this would lead to inefficient breakdowns and potential blockages inside the pipes.

In some cases, it can even lead to perforated pipes, which are costly to fix.

That’s why it’s so important to use ‘septic-safe’ labeled cleaning products – they are specifically formulated not to harm bacterial populations.

Regular Septic Tank Maintenance Procedures

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your septic system functioning properly.

Pumping Your Septic Tank

Household waste, including toilet paper, if left unchecked, can cause clogs, which can damage your septic system over time.

To prevent that, you want to pump your septic tanks regularly, ideally once every three to five years, depending on usage and size.

Depending on your location, it can cost anywhere from $200 to $600.

Caring For Drain Fields

This area requires careful attention. For example, driving or parking vehicles over the leach field could potentially lead to serious harm, including compacted soil, which can impede normal operations.

Preserving Your Septic System with Safe Cleaning Products

Choosing the right household cleaning products is key when it comes to preserving your septic system.

More specifically, you want to choose products that are labeled as ‘septic-safe’ or ‘biodegradable’ as they don’t contain harmful ingredients that could disrupt bacterial balance within tanks.

Avoid Overloading The System With Detergents And Soaps

You also want to consider the amount of product that you’re using.

Remember, even if they’re marked as ‘septic-safe’, excess amounts can still affect the balance of bacteria.

This is especially true for laundry detergents as large amounts are released after each wash cycle; this can cause potential harm through chemical buildup inside the septic tanks.

Treat Your Septic System

Septic tank treatments are essential when it comes to maintaining the health of your system.

Essentially, these septic treatments are biological additives that are designed to replenish the levels of beneficial bacteria – the ones that are respnsible for breaking down human waste in the tank.

Some also contain organic solvents that are used to break down fat and grease.

ACTIVE Septic Tank Treatment

Using the product regularly will not only help with the breakdown of waste but it’ll also mitigate odors that are often associated with poorly maintained systems.

Septic Tank Maintenance – FAQs

How can I keep my septic system healthy?

Maintain your septic system by conducting regular inspections, scheduling pump-outs once every 3-5 years, and using septic-safe cleaning products.

It’s also recommended that you treat your septic tank with ACTIVE once a month.

What does proper maintenance involve?

Ideally, you want to check for leaks or clogs, schedule pump-outs based on usage and size, and manage the leach fields to prevent damage.

What are the signs that your septic tank is full?

If you notice slow drains, sewage odors around your property, or lush green grass over the drain field area, your tank may be full.

How many loads of laundry a day are safe to do with a septic tank?

To avoid overloading your leach field dispersal system, it is recommended to limit yourself to one load of laundry per day if possible. For larger amounts, it is best to spread them out throughout the week.

    Sarah K.

    Been using it faithfully for months and the random “sewer smell” in our bathrooms is almost gone. The pods are handy, but it’s hard to know for sure if they’re the reason.

    Treatment pods are super easy, just flush and you’re set for the month. Our family of four puts a lot of pressure on the septic system, and these pods help keep everything functioning.

    Nothing’s more embarrassing than a clogged energy-saving toilet, especially in a retirement community. I always have a plunger and use the right toilet tissue, but these little blue packets, just one flush a month, are a lifesaver. Great value for a year’s supply. Really the best quality for great results. Thanks.
