Find out how SEPTICARE will leave you with a better septic tank system!
How SEPTICARE Works
All septic tanks need to be kept clear. In the past, this required frequent pumping. SEPTICARE dissolves, digests and liquefies all organic waste matter, paper, fibers, greases and fats - anything that would go into a septic tank. SEPTICARE works like NO other product on the market today!!
Most treatments that include caustics and acids work well in the beginning, but the effects are not long lasting. They kill the bacteria necessary to convert waste, ultimately hurting the efficiency of the system. Other treatments also rely on yeast and bacteria to work, but again, this is insufficient. Septic systems need enzymes to break down waste, making bacteria more effective. Other products use naturally occurring bacteria. Still again, this is NOT enough to perform properly. You need the correct mix of enzymes, bacteria and buffers that are found in SEPTICARE.
Why Do I Need a SEPTICARE Septic Tank Treatment?
In an ideal septic system, household wastes, including discarded food scraps, laundry water, cooking oils and grease, flow to a watertight septic tank, where they are decomposed by bacteria. In the tank, the complex food and waste particles are broken down by natural bacterial processes so that they can percolate into the subsoil surrounding a drainage field.
Inside the tank, the majority of the waste decomposes into sewage water, while heavier solids settle to the bottom and accumulate as sludge. With SEPTICARE in the tank sludge formation is minimized. Other lighter particles including grease and oil rise to the surface and form a scum. The decomposed sewage water then flows from the tank, through a distribution box and into a drainage field, which is a series of perforated pipes laid below ground in a bed of gravel. The liquid leaches out through the gravel and is further purified as it percolates through the soil. The more complete the decomposition of household waste, the more efficiently and trouble-free a septic system functions. Unfortunately today's soaps, bleaches, detergents, etc. can interfere with this process. That is where the SEPTICARE program comes in. By adding SEPTICARE once a month to your system you replace what is often destroyed by every day septic tank use.
Diagram of a Septic System
Wastewater flows from the home to the septic tank through the sewer pipe. The septic tank treats the wastewater naturally by holding it in the tank long enough for solids and liquids to separate. The wastewater forms three layers inside the tank. Solids lighter than water (such as grease or oil) float to the top, forming a layer of scum. Solids heavier than water settle at the bottom of the tank, forming a layer of sludge. This leaves a middle layer of partially clarified wastewater.
The layers of sludge and scum remain in the septic tank where bacteria found naturally in the wastewater work to break the solids down. Unfortunately, excessive use of household products like detergents, bleaches and other products adversely affects the bacterial flora in the tank. SEPTICARE replaces the bacteria and enzymes destroyed by household chemicals. To be effective, SEPTICARE must be added to the system monthly. This is a simple process. A scoop is provided and a scoopful is flushed down a commode once a month. The sludge and the scum that cannot be broken down (non-organic materials like sand, synthetic fabric fiber, etc.) are retained in the tank until the tank is pumped. Maintaining the bacterial flora in the septic system is the job of SEPTICARE.

The layer of clarified liquid flows from the septic tank to the drain field. This drain field uniformly distributes the wastewater. A standard drain field (also known as a leach field, disposal field, or a soil absorption system) is a series of trenches or a bed lined with gravel or course sand and buried one to three feet below the ground surface. Perforated pipes or drain tiles run through the trenches to distribute the wastewater. The drain field treats the wastewater by allowing it to slowly trickle from the pipes out into the gravel and down through the soil. The gravel and soil act as biological filters.
