Common Question about Septibac®

Where do I add Septibac® into my system and how much?
Dry Septibac® may be scooped directly into the toilet, or may be activated by mixing them in some warm (NOT HOT) water for several minutes before adding. When treating multi-floor building, always begin by treating the lower floor first. This way, organic matter that breaks loose on the upper floors will not cause clogs as they travel down and out the building. For usage rates, simply follow the directions.

How long before I see the results?
Bad odors and sludge accumulations take months and years to build-up, and it will take some time to get rid of it. Begin the treatment program with double dosage for the first one month. After this start-up period, you will begin to see significant improvement, and you can cut back to the normal weekly dose. Severe accumulation of sludge may take more than to eliminate.

If the bacteria grow and re-produce, why do I have to re-treat with more Septibac® everyday or every week?
The bacteria in Septibac® are very efficient at digesting waste, many times faster than naturally occurring bacteria. However, they are not as "strong" as the natural bacteria that may be present in the waste. If the treatment is stopped, the natural occurring bacteria are undesirable because they work slowly, produce odors, and can be pathogenic.

If the bacteria digest all the waste, will I ever have to pump out the septic tank again?
These bacteria can only digest organic matter. They can do nothing to sand, ash, shavings, dirt, cigarette butts, petroleum products, or other non-organic matter that gets into the system. Thus, there will always be some accumulation of undigested matter. Septic systems must still be pumps out occasionally, but with much less frequency than before.

Do the bacteria work in cold or freezing weather?
These bacteria work best in warm weather, when the water is 60 deg F to 9- deg F. In colder temperatures, they continue to work (but more slowly) even in the frigid waters under a crust of ice. For the best results, begin the treatment program in the warmer summer months.

Do disinfectants and detergents affect bacterial digestion?
Most detergents, soaps, and cleaners will not seriously affect the bacteria. However, chlorine bleach and other disinfectants and sanitizers will inhibit the bacteria. If these products are used heavily or frequently, increase your treatment rate to compensate for their effects.
