HOW DOES RID-X® WORK?
RID-X® septic maintenance solutions help restore the balance in your septic system
RID-X® Septic Tank System Treatment contains billions of 100% natural active septic tank bacteria and enzymes that have been scientifically proven to digest household waste. These bacteria were developed to be more active than the bacteria that naturally occur in your septic tank. By adding RID-X®, you help restore the delicate balance of beneficial septic tank bacteria and enzymes that are needed to help keep your system operating at full efficiency and avoid costly septic maintenance.
Each box of RID-X® contains the following ingredients, scientifically proven to break down household waste:
- Cellulase breaks down toilet paper, vegetable matter and some foods
- Lipase breaks down fats, oils and grease
- Protease breaks down proteins
- Amylase breaks down starches
How soon does RID-X® begin to activate and work?
Immediately. The enzymes begin working as soon as they come in contact with water and the waste they break down. The septic tank bacteria take 2-4 hours to germinate, multiplying to the maximum level that the environment will allow in about 2-4 days if the temperature and conditions are favorable. However, with the constant flow of sewage in, and water out of the tank, it is important to add RID-X® according to label directions in order to keep the RID-X® septic tank bacteria level at its highest. Because septic systems vary so much, we cannot make assertions on how quickly the bacteria and enzymes will break down waste.
