A failing septic system can be a catastrophic financial event for a homeowner. This can be particularly frustrating if the homeowner has already spent hundreds of dollars on septic tank additives for the express purpose of avoiding this very problem.
Disreputable companies have found a new source of revenue with people that have septic tank problems. These companies are selling customers septic tank additives that do absolutely nothing to eliminate septic tank problems but may lead to premature septic tank replacement.
Your septic tank service told you that the addition of a septic tank chemical or biological additive would save you money as you would not have to have your septic tank emptied as frequently and would also aid in extending the life of your septic system. The fact is you have been lied to!
