    Will epsom salt affect the septic tank in a negative way?

      Not unless you pour about 500 pounds in at one time. If you want to HELP your septic tank do a much better job, and reduce the number of times it has to be pumped, you should put in one-half cup of the best oxygen bleach you can find each ten days. Oxygen enhances the bacteria in the tank and allows them to digest the solids FASTER. Get the best oxygen bleach in the USA made with USA ingredients at:

    How much StainSolver do I need for my 3 bedroom house septic tank? How do I use it? When I go to the StainSolver site it does not discuss uses for septic tanks.
    Thanks, Jill Davaies

      Jill, Sorry for the delay. One-half cup every week is plenty.

    We are getting terrible smells from our showers. The septic guys have come and tell us nothing is wrong with our system. They've cleaned it 6 months ago and we called them back out for this problem but it continues. Any idea what can be causing this?

    Can you use brackish water for the water source for a toilet that feeds into a septic tank?

    Will Epsom salt baths ruin the sump pump on a sand trap septic system? 1 cup daily in a full tub?
