Are Septic Tank Cleaners Necessary?

If you are wondering if you need to add cleaners to your septic tank to keep up with the maintenance, the answer is no.

These products include biologically based materials (bacteria, enzymes, and yeast), inorganic chemicals (acids and bases), or organic chemicals (including solvents). They do not reduce the need for regular pumping of the septic tank. Some of these products contain organic chemicals and may even damage the drainfield or contaminate the groundwater and nearby wells.
