True or False? “I don’t need my tank pumped because I pour “that stuff” into mine!”


In the 20+ years that Robert Foster of Elitte Septic Tank & Grease Trap Service Inc. has been working in the septic industry, he is yet to find a single chemical that he says can take the place of pumping every 3-5 years. 

Household chemicals that have antibacterial agents in them counteract the effects of the good bacteria that you are pouring into your tank in the hopes of them disintegrating the solids. 

The best way to maintain and guarantee the health of your septic system is to have it pumped out every 3-5 years. It is more affordable than standard maintenance on your vehicle!
