Before you use this product read the entire label. Use strictly in accordance with label cautions, warnings and directions.
For normal working systems:
Use 1 gallon of Septic Seep every 6 months applied through the toilet, sink drain or convenient drain near the septic tank.
For sluggish septic systems:
Use 3 Gallons. 1 gallon a week for 3 weeks applied through a toilet, sink or convenient drain near the septic tank, Flush thoroughly with water to aid distribution through the tank and into the drain field. Apply 1 gallon every 6 months thereafter to maintain drainage. This dosage is based on an average home with 2 baths, dishwasher and clothes washer and having 200 ft. of disposal drainage ditch line. Larger systems will require a greater dose.
Cesspools and seepage pits:
Same as above.
Failing pit or cesspool:
Use 3 gallons of Septic Seep for the first treatment, then use 1 gallon a week for 3 weeks, per pit. Apply either through house drains or a convenient opening in the pit.
Restoring Failed Drain Fields:
Failed drain fields have been restored by applying Septic Seep in greater quantities. Good results have been obtained by applying 4 gallons directly to the drain field soil as a shock treatment. Septic Seep should be applied through a distribution box, cleanout, or el leading directly to the drain field, bypassing the septic tank. Have the tank pumped the day you intend to apply Septic Seep. All standing water should be pumped from the drain field if possible. You may have to dig below the surface of the soil to find your distribution box. If you do not have, or cannot find, a distribution box, cleanout, or el leading directly to the drain field, the product may be applied through the outlet of the septic tank using a funnel with a length of old garden hose attached. Place the end of the hose in the septic tank outlet and pour all 4 gallons through the funnel. Follow the application with enough clear water (up to 50 gallons) to flush the product deeper into the field.
If you are following the Septic Seep application with our Mega Bio bacteria treatment, wait at least 48 hours before applying the Mega Bio. This will give soil PH time to stabilize and provide optimum conditions for the living organisms to reproduce at a rapid pace benefiting soil recovery.
WARNING: Septic tanks can be hazardous. Noxious gases collect in the top of the tank, and tank contents pose a health hazard. We recommend hiring a licensed professional septic service technician if application must be done through the tank outlet.
PLEASE NOTE: Some septic tanks have a "T" outlet, or baffle installed on the outlet to reduce the amount of solids flowing to the drain field. These types of systems may prevent accessing the outlet in this way. If it is not possible to access the tank outlet, or use any other method of direct drain field application the product may be applied through a toilet or drain. Although not AS effective as a shock treatment applied directly to the soil, application in this manner will help restore drain field soil. Septic Seep has been shown to be effective in solutions as dilute as 1 part per 1,000.
Septic Seep is not a degreaser or emulsifier. It has been used successfully for over 50 years, but due to the wide range of contributing factors that may cause drain field failure, we cannot guarantee the effectiveness of Septic Seep.
