Is it ever too late to start to add septic tank bacteria?
Yes and no is the answer. You can go years with a septic tank system working just fine before you have a problem with it. The first problem is thinking that you can go years with no maintenance at all and only get it pumped when it clogs up the pipes or backs up the septic tank. This is the wrong way to take care of your expensive septic tank system.
Think of your septic tank system like the oil in your car. You change the oil in your car to keep the car’s engine as new as possible. You just do not change the oil only when you blow up the engine. Replacing the engine when if blows up is expensive so changing the oil is alot cheaper.
Pumping your septic tank every 2 to 3 years is a good idea if your septic system was designed for your needs. The keyword is for your needs.

What septic tank product should I use?
Everyday you should be asking yourself if something you are putting down your drains is harming your septic tank. If you have this mindset, Your septic system will work better. Even if you do this, Your septic tank still needs extra help that a septic tank bacterial product could provide. We do not suggest at all to buy a bacteria product for septic tanks from a local hardware store or a big box store. They tend to be low quality, heavy marketed products that are not worth the price you may pay. Using a store product will also just fill your septic system needlessly.
A good example is a BioForce Bacterial Waste Liquefier. It comes in a year supply of septic bacterial packets that you just toss into your toilet once a month. That one packet once a month is more powerful then any big box store product. You would have to use 2 bottles everyday to equal one packet of the BioForce Bacterial Waste Liquefier! Using BioForce Bacterial Waste Liquefier IS working with Mother Nature and not against her.
