Might someone please provide any opinions
or other information as to whether that product for
home septic systems, RID-X is any good and worth the money ?
I have the typical home residential system: waste goes to a settling tank,

Any other similar products better ?

the kitchen drain once a month. Never had the septic pumped as long as I
lived there, 14 years.
Use low/no phosphate soaps for washing. Phosphates inhibit the action in the

My personal opinion is that it is good and worth the money.
I lived with a septic system for several years and did use
it, but I don't have anything that I could say that would
You could probably get away with once per quarter (one box
every three months).
If it's not taking food out of your mouth, then why not use
it? Better to be safe than sorry, right?
