These 4 Everyday Products will Keep your Septic in Tip Top Shape

If you have a septic system, everything that goes down your drain or is flushed in your toilet ends up in your septic system. You might not have thought about how the cleaners and household products you use daily could affect your septic. Some chemicals and products harm the natural breakdown process of your septic, causing potential blockage or overflow. We’ve put together four products that you can trust to keep your septic system running smoothly.

Bathroom & Toilet Cleaner: CLR

The CLR Bath & Kitchen Foaming Action Cleaner and the CLR Calcium, Lime, and Rust Remover are excellent choices that make your bathroom sparkling clean while being mild on your septic. They’ll also be helpful if your property has hard water, as CLR is specifically designed to fight calcium, lime, and rust build-up.

Dishwashing: Method

Method has many great household cleaning products that are biodegradable, making them ideal for homes with septic tanks. Whether you wash your dishes by hand or use a dishwasher, Method has many great options and scents that you’ll love. And you won’t have to worry about the state of your septic.

Floor Cleaner: Nature’s Miracle & Holloway House

You might not think about your floor cleaner impacting your septic. But when you empty your carpet cleaner or mop bucket into the toilet or down the drain, those chemicals make their way through your system. Nature’s Miracle has great eco-safe options for carpet cleaners, especially if you have pets. For hard surfaces, Holloway House’s environmentally friendly products are safe to use.

All-Purpose: GreenWorks

For everyday cleaning and messes, GreenWorks has a formula that is 97% naturally derived. Naturally-derived products easily break down in your tank and allow the natural processes of your system to do their work.

There are a lot of great septic-safe products on the market to use in your home. These are just a few to get you started. When you’re looking for septic-safe products, we recommend you avoid anything antibacterial, look for natural or eco-friendly products, or use products with the EPA Safer Choice label.

While these products will keep your septic healthy, you should also have a regular maintenance routine that involves septic professionals like our team at Septic Check. Schedule an appointment today.
