septic-flow-shockgal.jpgWhat is Septic-Flow?

Septic-Flow is a septic tank maintenence shock liquid. It is NOT an enzyme or bacteria. Enzymes and bacteria have a great place in a septic system but they do nothing to address sodium build-up in the drain-field soil. This build-up cause the soil to lock up and not accept drain-field water over time.

Septic-Flow is not new science. It is a tried and true method to get your septic field flowing again. In simple terms it is a chemical product used since the 1950's to help soften or loosen the soil surrounding your septic system to get it flowing again. It is a septic tank maintenence aid that helps reverse "deadpan" or "hard soil" that has formed after years of sodium building up in the soil from the use of washing machine and laundry detergents, body and hand soaps with thousands of gallons a year pouring into your septic field that slowly accumulates sodium build-up over time, causing the soil to harden and not accept any more water or bio-nutrients from your septic system into the soil. Once the soil locks up, there is little left to do but dig up the entire drain-field system and install a costly new one.

Now you have a simple and inexpensive solution to digging up your entire septic system caused by locked-up soil.

How do I use Septic-Flow for Septic Tank Maintenence/Repair?

To Shock Slow or Sluggish Septic Systems:

Start with 3 gallons of septic tank maintenence product. Use 1 gallon of product via the toilet, sink or drain closest to the septic system outlet. Next Apply 1 gallon of product into the drain field soil directly. After 1 week add another 1 gallon.. Flush freely with water to distribute it throughout the septic system drain field.

For Drain/Leach Field and Septic Tank Maintenance:

Use 1 gallon every 6 months via the toilet or nearest drain closest to the septic tank.

Restoring a Failed Drain Field or Leach System:

Start with 5 gallons of product. Apply minimum of 3-4 gallons of product directly to the drain field soil. Apply the final 1-2 gallons via the distribution box / cleanout or septic tank opening. For waterlogged systems, try to drain off as much excess water as possible before treatment. Use a hose and add 40-80 gallons of water to the distribution box with the product to ensure it makes it through the entire drain field system.  If you can not access the distribution or "D-Box", it may be necessary to add additional product via the toilet or sink.
The septic tank maintenence directions may need to be repeated for seriously slow or completely “locked” soil, especially clay type soils.
