We have a house in North Carolina at the beach that has a septic system on the property. I've been using septic tank treatments since we bought the property many years ago and haven't had to have the system pumped. This treatment has all natural microbes that digest the waste in the tank and won't pollute the ground in the drain field. That's very important to us as the kids play in the yard and I don't want the toxic stuff in our tank that some other treatments have.

It's a little difficult to say that this is the next best thing in septic system treatment, as you really can't know if it's working until you find out that it isn't... But I like what I've read about it and was willing to give it a try. It has a blend of naturally safe, friendly microbes, (We hope!) and it's easy to use (We know!) It's supposed to keep your Septic system clean, clear and operating at peak efficiency treating all drain and sewage lines, increasing the digestion of waste in the septic tank through the biological formulation, and digesting and removing sludge deposits in the leach field, all of which I want it to do.
I'll get back to you in a few months, and we'll see.

When I purchased my house years ago, all I knew about septic tank was, that it should be pumped out every 2-3 years. Little by little I have learned how my septic system works that just pumping the tank is not enough and that my septic system is actually my private miniature sewage treatment plant requiring specific maintenance:
Proper system functioning relays on presence of natural bacteria which by eating the raw sewage converts this into liquid. Due to use of everyday cleaners and other common household chemicals and also grease from kitchen population of bacteria in septic system is decreasing, and remaining bacteria cannot digest and degrade in full all raw sewage coming into tank and all system becomes troubled. Repairs are costly. Just for getting the crusted grease from the tank I have paid big dollars extra. My septic system once a year backed up and the tank needed to be pumped every year. I realized I have to do something.
First I started adding some other grand pockets of bacteria into my tank every month. The situation has incredibly improved. No more back ups, my tank is pumped every two years now. Then I switched to this bacteria product. This product works the best. For ongoing best performance treatment should be repeated every three months comparing to my previous bacteria pockets which had to be applied every month. This product is so powerful, that it's capable to fully restore already troubled system, which is - WOW! Application is easy, just shake it well, pour all liquid from container into the toilet and flush and bacteria starts almost instantly working. This product is safe for use with all pipes and fittings and because cleaning agents are natural (see pic 4), it's environmentally safe. The cost is very appealing: what I used to pay every month for treatment, I am paying now for three months.

This can be used to treat and maintain your septic system. It can be poured down the drain or toilet. One bottle is one treatment. It is easy to use since it is a liquid. It is safe for the environment and will penetrate grease, soap and other blockages you may have. We have had no trouble with out septic tank since we started using this treatment.

Drainbo offers so much in one bottle at one great price.
This product unclogs those nasty drains, treats your septic system and cleans the leach lines of the grease and soaps that are harmful.
Once upon a time I used one product to unclog my bathroom drain and another product I would pour into the system to clean out the leach lines and monthly I would use another product to clean the septic tank, I was spending a small fortune trying to prevent more damage that would amount to a very expensive repair. Not anymore, I will use only one product and that product is Drainbo for all of my septic plumbing needs. It seems to be the Smart Choice!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Works for us
The folks at the hardware store don't think these products work, but they have helped us. We have an older septic system in the country which occasionally has standing water over the drain field. Obviously, that means it isn't working. We feel that dumping septic treatment in the toilet every few months has helped the standing water, and we've never had to dig it all up for repair. Although I'm sure we will have repairs at some time in the future, we'll continue to use this stuff to postpone the inevitable as long as possible.

This product says it is for year around septic system preventive maintenance and clog free drains. The active ingredients include naturally specifically grown bacillus for digestion of household waste. It also has derivatives of coconuts, lemons and vegetable based cleaning agents. I poured it down my kitchen sink because of the grease and stuff that comes from cooking and can leave sludge on the pipes. It has no odor. We were not having a problem with our septic system so I hope monthly treatments with Drainbo Septic System Treatment and Cleaner will keep it that way. Septic problems are no fun.
