Monthly Septic Tank Maintenance Product

Here’s a septic tank maintenance product to help control the necessary balance to keep your tank functioning well.

In our last article, we discussed how a septic system works by maintaining a delicate balance of bacteria and enzymes that break down the wastewater going into it. It is its own ecosystem.  As we know, if we add toxic materials to any ecosystem, the balance will be destroyed, and the ecosystem will die.  Our daily lives are full of these same toxic materials: soaps, cleaners, cooking fats and oils, detergents and a myriad of other things that find their way down our drains and toilets.

The Importance of Septic Tank Maintenance

Regular Septic Tank Maintenance keeps things flowing

If you live in a rural area of Canada or the United States, chances are that your house has a septic tank. Septic tank maintenance is vital just the same as maintenance on your car or the rest of your home is vital.

What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is a giant underground tank where all your household wastewater goes.  At one end of the tank is an overflow area, whereby exit pipes full of holes extend out into the drain field, which has been well prepared with layers of rocks, sand and soil.  As tank fills with solids (which break down naturally) and liquid, it overflows into the pipes.  The liquid flows into the field and slowly percolates down through the ground to become clean groundwater again.

How Septic Tanks Work

In an ideal world, the septic tank works as an ecosystem, full of the same types of helpful bacteria and enzymes that live in our own digestive systems to break down the waste.  The solids become liquid and flow out into the field as the tank fills, maintaining a delicate balance.

Septic Tank Maintenance you May Need

However, our lives are full of many chemicals: chemicals to clean, chemicals to keep us healthy in our medicines, and chemicals in our foods to preserve them.  These chemicals destroy the natural bacteria and enzymes that are normally found keeping our septic tanks working.  To combat this ongoing problem, a homeowner can use products such as Telamode’s RC4 Drainfield Digester, added monthly into the septic system.  RC4 contains the same bacteria and enzymes needed to continue the natural breakdown process in the tank and to replace what is destroyed by the chemicals. It also contains nutrients that strengthen the helpful bacteria, to ensure a large population for maximum efficiency.

Don’t let your septic tank catch you with your pants down… maintain it by re-adding the bacteria and enzymes you need to keep things moving.  Try RC4 Drainfield Digester today and keep your septic tank happy.
