Septic tanks are designed to allow naturally occurring bacteria and enzymes to degrade waste into water, carbon dioxide and mineral matter that is then safe to release into the surrounding soil. However, the uses of anti-bacterial chemicals, detergents, and soaps as well an excessive quantity of waste will work against this natural process. This can lead to waste solidification which in turn causes backups, odors and ultimately septic system failure which is not only a health and environmental hazard but an expensive fix.
The really good news is that there is now extensive research that validates the effectiveness of all-natural septic treatment enzymes in terms of helping to keep septic systems healthy and functional. Clearly, the best septic treatment product is one that contains specific types of bacteria that have been most studied and validated as being helpful. Some of the most valuable bacteria species include:
- Bacillus subtilis
- Bacillus licheniformis
- Bacillus pumilis
- Bacillus amyloliquefaciens
- Bacillus megatarium
Other important considerations in choosing a septic tank treatment product include:
Potency – Always look for a septic treatment product that has a high CFU content. BioWonder contains 3 billion CFU, over 3x higher than our competitors.
Stability – Your septic treatment product should give you guaranteed shelf-life stability. BioWonder is shelf life stable for at least 2 years.
Diversity – Go for products that supply at least 4 different bacterial species. BioWonder contains a synergized blend of six selectively chosen bacterial species.
