A failing septic system does not properly breakdown solids and allows excess
raw sewage to penetrate the water table you may be drawing your drinking
water from. This in turn translates in harmful bacteria entering your soil and contaminating your land and water in the future. It can also be caused by lack
of bacteria in your tank due all the household chemicals and cleaning agents that are used to kill bacteria, germ
and virus growth in your house today. Solution is to use pro-biotic additives
that add helpful bacteria that will breakdown grease, paper, soaps, detergents,
and other solids flushed down your system. Monthly treat for less than $10 is
suggested and will lengthen the life of your septic system and definitely save
time and money in the future.
