rid-x


I was told that baking soda works just as well for your septic instead of Rid-X. Is this true or not? A plumber stated to me it works just as well and is not expensive like Rid-X. I would like the advice from you guys who would know more than I do. Thanks for your time and advice.

I don't know if it works better or not but I've been on septic for 20 yrs. and have never added any septic system products- never an issue

Both are not needed for a properly designed septic.

Not sure where you got that idea about the baking soda, fine to deoderize a sink drain, but not seeing that doing anything in a septic tank.

because of the chemicals in our dishwasher and washing machines along with frequently used, the active bacteria in the septic system tend not reproduce as fast as required to keep the system healthy. Rid x works well which is an active enzyme, not baking soda but baking yeast works just as well at half the cost. keeps the enzymes healthy and active,
