Q: We just moved into a home that uses a septic system. Is it OK for us to use Drano®? Will Drano® harm our septic system?
A: When it comes to using Drano® with septic systems, you’ve got nothing to worry about. All Drano® products are safe for septic systems and will not harm the bacterial action in them. In fact, we recommend using Drano® Prevention regularly—this product prevents clogs and contains bacteria and enzymes that contribute to the overall health of your septic system.
If you have a septic system, you should have a professional inspect it every two to three years. Some regions require septic-tank inspection on a regular basis. Check with your local health board about the rules in your community. This will ensure your system is up to par and running smoothly.
