haha, you should have googled it Rid-X is bacteria, not yeast, which is a fungus (think mushroom). Did I understand you correctly?I can't believe none of you did a Google search. I did, "is Rid-X a yeast? Everything I read is that yeast is a very good thing for septic tanks.......
we were just forced by the county to connect to the new sewer line. The contractor that did the connection and disabling of the septic system couldn't believe that it hadn't been pumped in 15 years and was in as good shape as it was.Been dumping my for 10+ years when we refinanced it had to be pumped out. We removed the cover and in the grey water side we could see the bottom it was so clear guy couldn't believe we hadn't had it pumped since we moved in. It must do something + most of are detergents are biodegradable.
What's the diff between dumping it out your lawn, versus sending it out to your lawn via the septic?I'm an environmental engineer and yeast is not on any of my lists of "what not to dump down your drain" that we give to clients. Anaerobic bacteria are in the trillions in your septic tank. It is unlikely that yeast will do anything but fall to the bottom in an anoxic environment.
Why dump trub down the drains though? It's just going to add to the solids in your septic tank. If you have a yard just pitch it out in the lawn...won't hurt anything. I never dump food trash or liquids down the drain that could be dumped outside. If it's biodegradable I dump it in my woods behind the house.
If you dump anything and everything down your drains because you have city sewer...well you are the kind of people that are the scourge of the wastewater treatment plants and the reason your sewer bills keep going up!
A septic tank is an anoxic environment (no oxygen). Bio-decomposition is much more effective in an oxic (oxygen rich) environment therefor it is much better to put safe bio-degradable solids into a compost system or spread it in a vegetative area to let nature do the work. Putting in solids (even vegetable scraps via a garbage disposal) results in more chance of your septic system (leach field) becoming clogged due to higher BOD (biological oxygen demand) within the wastewater stream and more solids settling as black "sludge" in your septic tank that will need pumped.What's the diff between dumping it out your lawn, versus sending it out to your lawn via the septic?
That one is huge! My 3 Bdrm is typical size at 1,000 gallons (or 134cf). I think inside iomensions are like 4ft by 5.5ft by 6ft or so. Definitely a MIL suite.
