Why Enzymes and Additives are Bad for Your Septic System

ATTENTION RESTAURANT OWNERS: CLEAN YOUR GREASE TRAPS!

As a homeowner, it is important to understand what is good for your septic system and what can be harmful to it. There are many myths about DIY methods for keeping your septic system healthy, but more often than not, DIY methods of septic maintenance damage your system instead of help it.

One of the number one myths about septic systems is that enzymes and additives are good for your septic tank. This is false! While septic tank enzymes and additives may seem like an inexpensive way to maintain your system, they prevent your septic system from naturally processing waste.

WHAT ARE SEPTIC TANK ENZYMES OR ADDITIVES?

Septic enzymes and additives are supposed to ‘refresh’ your septic system which they often fail to do. Utilizing septic enzymes will cause homeowners to spend more money trying to ‘maintain’, ‘repair’ or ‘restore’ their system with the damage caused by the excess bacteria that your system doesn’t need.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ENZYMES

It is important to not be fooled by the promoters of septic enzymes and additives. Your septic system is unique in the way it processes your waste. There is already bacteria within your septic system, so adding more enzymes and additives keeps your system from running smoothly.

If this information is not enough to convince you that enzymes and additives are bad for your septic tank, they can also cause complete septic system failure by allowing sludge and grease to pass to the soil treatment area, also known as the leach field. Septic system failure requires a full replacement of your existing system, leaving you with a large financial burden as well as unnecessary stress.
