Cleaning Roots Out Of Septic Tanks

Heather M

  Activator 1000 is an septic additive Many of us automatically think when our septic system starts to back up and become clogged that it’s because of the roots spreading from our trees. In some cases, that is not the issue. It could very well be a clog from the sludge that has formed at the bottom of your septic tank; leaving less space and time for the waste water to settle before passing to the drain field. More than likely if that occurred you’re not using a preventive maintenance treatment like Activator 1000. If it is sludge that is causing problems to your system, using our product will resolve those issues. This is the first step you should try to see if it is the sludge causing the clog. If this isn’t the issue, the next step would be...

Can I Add Too Much Bacteria to the Septic System?

Heather M

Billions of bacteria colonies throughout the septic tank system break down biodegradable material and remove harmful pathogens from household waste-water. The use of anti bacterial soaps and detergents, among other household cleaners and disinfectants, kill these vital bacteria and hinder the function of the septic tank system. Adding a septic tank treatment that contains septic tank bacteria and enzymes to the septic tank system will restore balance to the system by replenishing and boosting the bacteria level. These septic tank treatment products are designed to be used once every 3-6 weeks, for optimal septic maintenance and preventative septic tank care. Excessive use or over-dosing of an all natural septic tank treatment that contains only bacteria and enzymes will not harm the septic tank system. Since bacteria in the septic tank system are responsible for the degradation of solids and sludge,...

Billions of naturally occurring bacteria throughout the septic tank system are responsible for the degradation of solid waste and the purification of waste water.

A high level of “good” bacteria is absolutely necessary for the septic tank system to function effectively, however other chemicals and antibacterial products that get into the septic system harm, stress, and kill these bacteria on a daily basis.

These “good” bacteria are cultivated, freeze-dried, and packaged for the use of preventative septic maintenance. When Activator 1000 is used (flushed down...

The Role of Enzymes in Septic Tank Treatment

Heather M

Sewage is created every time a toilet is flushed, a shower is taken, or something is washed down a drain. 25% of homes in the U.S. rely on septic tank systems, on-site waste water treatment facilities, to treat and dispose of household waste water. Septic tank systems are an effective, inexpensive, and low maintenance alternative where public sewer is unavailable. Proper treatment of waste water is required for health, and environmental reasons before it can be disposed of. Bacteria in the septic system are responsible for the degradation of organic waste. Billions of bacteria throughout the septic system break down solid waste and purify water, resulting in a functioning septic tank system. While bacteria play an extremely important role in the septic tank system, they do not work alone. As the bacteria metabolize, grow, and divide, enzymes are created. Enzymes...
