Many of today’s most common household cleaning products, hand soaps, and detergents contain antibacterial and antiseptic chemicals. These products interfere with the natural process that occurs in your septic tank. Bio-Tab® is an environmentally friendly septic tank additive which ensures that your tank stays in proper working order.
What makes Bio-Tab® Superior?
Advanced Formula: Bio-Tab® is a highly concentrated tablet of bacteria (both aerobic and anaerobic) and enzymes that act as a biological activator for septic tanks. In short, Bio-Tab® helps septic systems work like they were intended.
Easy-to-Use: Unlike most competitors’ dusty powders or messy liquids, Bio-Tab® is in an easy to use tablet form. There’s also a handy tracking sticker on the top of each bottle to track the tablets used per month. Professionally packaged in a small jar (one jar contains a full year’s supply), you can easily store Bio-Tab without fear of spilling harsh chemicals in your home.
Safe: Bio-Tab® is non-toxic to humans and animals. It is a non-corrosive and non-poisonous product that will not harm plumbing or septic systems.
The Bio-Tab® concept has been designed with you in mind. The combination of tablet form and technologically advanced chemistry assures you of consistent product performance and dosage. These concentrated, time-release tablets allow you to easily treat your septic system without the inconvenience of messy liquids or dusty powders.
How Bio-Tab® Works?
♦ Bio-Tab® is a carefully produced tablet form, which sinks to the bottom of your septic tank where buildup problems begin. While powders and liquids can wash over the surface with little effect, Bio-Tab’s composition of enzymes and bacteria allows it to gradually dissolve to create a growing area of activity at the bottom of the tank that digests and liquefies organic waste.
♦ When Bio-Tab is first added to the septic system, the tablet sinks to the bottom of the tank where there is little to no oxygen. This is where the anaerobic bacteria work best – in the absence of oxygen. Here Bio-Tab® dissolves the solids and sludge. The liquid then passes into the drain field to be absorbed into the ground.
♦ Once in the drain field, liquid waste is exposed to the air where aerobic bacteria, which work in the presence of oxygen, can continue the breakdown process. This allows the natural filter action of the surrounding ground to remain unclogged in order to naturally absorb and purify the waste.
Bio-Tab® works from the inside out and hence using it will aid and support the natural digestion of waste, helping your septic system to successfully complete its role and maintain good working condition.
Directions for Use:
♦ For best results, we recommend the following treatment for every 1,000 gallons of septic tank capacity. The initial application should be repeated after every pumping.
♦ For the first application, flush 3 tablets down the toilet to establish action, flushing twice.
♦ Use 1 tablet each month thereafter to maintain a proper level of bacterial activity, flushing twice with each dosage.
Note: After using Bio-Tab® for Septic Systems for one full year. If you are satisfied with the results from the product and re-order another one-year supply. If you haven’t pumped out your septic tank you can continue to use 1 tablet per month. If you have pumped out the tank then you will need to perform the Initial Treatment to establish action once again. When pumping out the system it removes the good bacteria from the tank.
♦ Bio-Tab has a shelf life of about 5 years as long as it’s kept dry.
♦ It’s best to store Bio-Tab in a cool dry place. Room temperature is fine. Just avoid extreme heat.
♦ Each jar of Bio-Tab contains a desiccant packet to help absorb any excess humidity.
How Bio-Tab® Compares to the Competition?
Monthly Dosage Tracking made Easy:
Although Bio-Tab® comes with a handy tracking sticker on the top of the jar to track monthly dosage. We realized that once a Bio-Tab® container is stored away and out of sight, it’s also out of mind, and missing a scheduled monthly treatment is very easy to do. So we came up with an easy solution to remedy that problem. We include a complimentary refrigerator magnet calendar with every jar to keep track of your monthly dosage.
In addition, we also offer a complimentary monthly email reminder, which will be sent to your email address associated with your order (if applicable) to help ensure that you never miss a septic system treatment.
