It is extremely difficult to find the "truth' in advertizing, product ingredient labels, etc. I tried various online search methods and could not find one clear statement about a VIM product and possible septic tank problems. A big problem with product and ingredient consumer labels is that there is essentially no government or "watch-dog" agency policing what manufacturers claim about their products. A very good example is a product label stating it is made from 98% "natural" ingredients. Many "natural ingredients" can be (and often are!) just water; so a product can be 98% "natural water" and 2% terrible and/or worthless ingredients.

Also, there are many products in the market that claim "natural" and "no animal testing". People believe and buy a product assuming no animal testing. However, these companies are simply stating their version of truth in advertizing, that they do not test on animals.


However, they are quite free to purchase a needed ingredient from a company that does test on animals as there is no other way to obtain it. The company can then claim "no animal testing" on it's product labels.

Re your specific septic tank question. I recommend you contact the company that services your tank for their input. Just because a product contains "natural, basic, essential, etc.," ingredients does not mean it will not damage something it is used in, on, with, etc. Caveat emptor!
