Proper tank maintenance is a critical part of owning a home septic system. In recent years, septic tank additives have become an alternative choice for homeowners looking to extend the intervals between pumping appointments. While septic tank additives claim that they will clean your tank, these harsh chemicals can often do more harm than good. To highlight the benefits of having your septic tank professionally pumped, consider these reasons why you may want to stay away from putting additives in your system:
Septic tank additives can have a negative environmental impact on the areas surrounding your home’s drainage field. These additives are made up of a series of harsh chemicals, bacteria, enzymes, and other molecules. When you deposit an additive into your tank, its components will go to work dissolving sediment and solid matter. As the contents of your septic system break down, they will begin to create large quantities of harmful bacteria. If the bacterial levels of your septic system get too high, they will begin to leech out of the tank and contaminate the surrounding areas.
If left alone, your septic tank will achieve a natural balance of both good and bad bacteria. The primary function of these bacteria is to break down the solid matter that is inside your septic tank. Once additives are introduced to your system, they can cause the amount of bad bacteria to increase and multiply. After the bacterial balance becomes destabilized, your septic tank can begin to overflow with waste.

Not all water is the same. Since water is one of the most important building blocks of life, you should pay close attention to the kind of water you put into your body.
