BioKix High Potency Septic System Bacillus is a key part of a strategic plan to keep systems working like new and extend the life of a system.
Drop a one ounce pre-measured water soluble pouch of BioKix High Potency Septic System Bacillus every third month (quarterly) into a toilet, let it dissolve, and then flush to keep septic systems working as intended. Septic systems are expensive to replace and typically start at $15,000 so protect it by creating a schedule to clean their filters and pump their contents in addition to adding BioKix quarterly.
So you might want to find a pumping service you trust and be present when tank is pumped to get a better idea of its condition and adequacy for the number of people it supports. You will notice the difference after you have used BioKix and will find you don’t have to pump and clean your filters as often.
The goal is to avoid emergency repairs and inconvenient problems and of course to not have to totally replace a system.
There are things that should not wind up in a septic tank.
- Do not clean paint brushes in sinks that drain into your septic tank.
- Do not backwash your water softeners into your septic system.
- Do not pour grease down your drains.
- Do be mindful that bleaches, sanitizers, and detergents will slow the natural biological process of your system and in excess, will stop it altogether for a period of time.
Septic Systems vs. Sewers:
The following information is helpful if you are new to rural living and find you now have a septic system instead of being connected to a municipal sewer system.
Congratulations, you are now in the sewer and wastewater treatment plant business and you are your own boss. Your septic system provides both of these functions except your septic system will not have mechanical agitators. Webster’s Dictionary defines the septic tank as “a tank in which waste matter is decomposed through bacterial action”.
If you were to look inside your septic tank, you would find three layers. The top layer is the scum layer where organic material floats to the surface. Bacteria in the septic tank biologically convert this material to a liquid.
The middle layer is the effluent layer where mostly clear water will be found. This clear water is the only layer that should enter your absorption area. The faster this clear water layer can be created, the faster it can transfer to the absorption area.
The bottom layer is the sludge layer. This layer is where the inorganic or inert solid materials and the by-products of bacterial digestion sink to. This is what needs to be pumped out. If your tank is full of scum and sludge you are not going to have a clear water layer and you are going to have problems.
Sludge reduces the capacity of the tank. When biological processes are working correctly, waste will partially decompose on its own. What does not decompose either floats and forms a solid crust or sinks to the bottom and stops decomposing.
Partially decomposed waste will also stick to the sides of a tank. Deep accumulations of sludge on the tank’s floor and sides, unless treated with special strains of Bacillus that are in BioKix Septic System Shock Bacillus, requires frequent removal.
