Septic tank treatments are chemicals and materials that people add to a septic system to keep it running well. Septic tank treatments claim to break down organic solids, meaning the system won’t have to be emptied or pumped out as often. Some chemicals will neutralize septic tank odors that may seep into the home, too. These treatments often are pre-packaged, making a monthly application easy to perform. Others will require measuring of a liquid or powder before application. Understand that these treatments are only for residences that have a septic tank. Those who are connected to a sewer system do not need these treatments.
