You’ve probably had to deal with a clogged drain at some point in your life. But every time the water rises in the toilet or the sink takes forever to drain it can be a mental breakdown-causing experience. And when you have a septic tank, it can become even more frustrating when trying to figure out a “septic safe” way of diffusing the situation.
No one wants to take a shower with two inches of dirty water piling up at their feet because it won’t go down correctly. But don’t pull your hair out in frustration -- that will just lead to more clogging!
And don’t be fooled by popular drain cleaner or drain opener products you might find at your local department or hardware store. These products often contain chemicals that kill bacteria and corrode pipes and septic tanks and cause more harm than good.
Why are chemical drain openers harmful to septic systems?
A septic system is an ecosystem of bacteria and enzymes that break down all organic waste (aka your “waste”) and separate and filter all the inorganic matter from the wastewater that drains into the soil. This system can become disrupted when too much inorganic waste is flushed into your tank on a regular basis.
One of the worst things to do when trying to clear your tank is to flush antibacterial or chemical drain cleaners down the toilet. These harmful drain cleaners are common but will do absolutely nothing to help the ecosystem of your tank. In fact, destroying bacteria will have an adverse effect on your septic system
What you really need is a product that contains beneficial bacteria that will, instead of destroying bacteria and enzymes, will team up with the already existing bacteria and enzymes to break down and digest waste and to restore the natural balance of your septic tank.
Instead of opting for chemical cleaners, look for a drain cleaner or drain opener product that is listed as septic safe and biodegradable. Septic safe indicates that the product will not corrode the septic tank materials; biodegradable indicates that the formula will degrade naturally and not harm surrounding areas.
