Cleaners Septic System

DETERGENTS: Low sudsing detergents should be used. If powdered detergents are used, only the
concentrated forms are recommended. Filler materials used in the “economy size” containers do not dissolve readily. Below are a few suggestions:
Ultra Cheer with advanced color guard powder
Liquid Tide with bleach alternative
Ultra ERA liquid

NEVER USE MORE THAN THE MANUFACTURER'S RECOMMENDED AMOUNT OF DETERGENT:
If excessive sudsing or foaming occurs during laundry, reduce the amount of detergent used to 1/2 of the recommended amount. Manufacturer's recommendations can often be reduced.

BLEACH: Chlorine bleach should not be used. Oxygen bleaches are recommended. Oxygen bleaches can be used in any form, liquid, powder, or pellets. Most laundry detergents contain sodium perborate or bleach which releases boron as it breaks down. Boron has a bactericidal effect which in excessive quantities could damage your treatment plant so that it is wise to keep bleach levels to a minimum.

DRAIN CLEANERS: Non-caustic biodegradable drain and toilet bowl cleaners are recommended when
available. DO NOT USE TOILET BOWL CLEANERS SUCH AS 2000 FLUSHES; OR DRAIN CLEANERS SUCH AS DRANO OR LIQUID PLUMBER.
