Will Drano® products harm my septic system?

No, all Drano® products are safe for septic systems and will not harm the bacterial action in septic systems. Follow the package instructions for the right amount of product to use.

How to Clean a Septic Tank?

An overfilled septic tank can cause backups in a sewer line, causing many problems in a plumbing system. If a septic tank has overflowed, it is usually clogged with excessive organic debris. A septic tank cleaner can be a good first step when treating a septic tank overflow. Septic tank cleaners contain natural bacteria and enzymes, designed to break down organic material in human waste. Excessive disposal of bleach and detergents into a septic line can kill these bacteria, preventing the breakdown of septic waste in a tank. If a septic cleaner doesn't clear a tank after a week, it may be necessary to use a professional septic tank cleaning service.
