What is an acceptable amount of chlorine that can safely be added to a
septic system each month? Or should I avoid it altogether? I noticed
that when I stop using chlorine for in the wash for a couple of
months, the washing machine and clothes start to pick up a musty odor.
I've read and heard that small amounts of chlorox and bathroom
cleaners will not do any harm. Any opinions?
My mom used to flush a glass of yeast down the toilet once a month. She used
high phosphate detergent and bleach, chlorine all of the time. Trying to
keep the whites white on a farm was a full time job. We never had any
problems with the septic in the 12 years I was there.
As for the musty smell in the wash, I am stumped. Does your water smell bad
out of the faucet?
