Hi all-
A salesman from Septic Savior called me this morning trying to sell septic tank additive to combat the effects of petroleum found in shampoo, toilet paper, etc. He said that over 470,00 systems had failed in the past year due to government mandated changes in manufacturing which removed animal fat from the items and replaced with petroleum products. The Septic Savior product is supposed to have GRT (grease removal technology) to prevent hardening in the main line and in the leach lines. I have looked on line and not found much info about this.

Do I need to buy this stuff?

We have a 35-year old septic system that has been inspected, pumped, and certified (an eastern Kansas requirement) within the past 5 years.

Thank you so much for any advice/insight!
