I have had two different septic tanks and both were nithing but trouble. Yet other people seem to have no trouble at all. One thing that is a problem is the automatic lint filter on your washer. It flips when the washer cycle is done and the lint goes into the tank. It does not disolve and just builds up in the tank. If you have enough land to run the washer outside of the tank it helps. If not trying to filter the wash water as it drains would help.
Works good, I think the problems with septic tanks is:
1) under sized tank
2) single chamber tanks (2 chamber tanks are better)
3) to small of leach field, or clog up leach field
4) putting garbage down the drain that should be put in trash, or composted (These are my opinions)
I works and will not harm it. In fact, most commercial products don't harm them either. Just read the label on the container.
