Septic Sense and Bio-Tab®

A Major Advance in Preventative Septic System TreatmentToday’s Home Septic Systems are under assault like never before. With the growing use of chemicals in the products we use every day to maintain our standards of living, our septic systems are often the unwilling recipients of damaging substances. These substances are foreign to the natural ecological process and can slow down or completely stop the natural digestion of septic system waste.

BIO-TAB® is a Biological Activator

Unlike many other products on the market, BIO-TAB® does not cause the sludge to be redeposited in the drain fields. Instead, BIO-TAB® increases the anaerobic bacteria action of the septic tank and the aerobic action in the drain field, promoting better breakdown of solids and waste throughout the system.

Of the products on the market today, most rely on chemical action to treat the problem or provide only a small amount of biological activators. Of these two approaches, the second is the best, but that still falls short of what is needed.

Anaerobic and Aerobic

Most households today use a wide variety of commercial products in their day-to-day operation. Few, if any, are “ecologically” compatible. They contain various toxins that can kill the microorganisms the septic system depends on to operate properly.

Septic systems are made up of two main units that need each other to properly dispose of the waste. The first part is the septic tank, where the wastewater and solids are deposited. The second is the drain field, where the waste is allowed to drain and filter into the ground.

To properly treat the waste added to the system two kinds of bacteria are needed. Anaerobic and aerobic. While each of these bacteria, produce enzymes that break down the natural solids and sludge, they are activated and function in different areas of the septic system.

BIO-TAB® contains highly concentrated amounts of anaerobic and aerobic bacteria.

Let me describe the differences between these types of bacteria and where they work.

When BIO-TAB® is first added to the septic system, the tablet sinks to the bottom of the tank and dissolves where there is little, if any, oxygen. This is where the Anaerobic (works in the absence of oxygen) bacteria works best. Here they solubilize and break up the solids and sludge. The liquid then passes into the drain fields to be absorbed into the ground.

In the drain field, liquid waste is exposed to the air. There, the aerobic (works in the presence of oxygen) bacteria go to work to continue the breakdown. This allows the natural filter action of the surrounding ground to remain unclogged in order to naturally absorb and purify the waste. BIO-TAB®’s use will aid and support this natural digestion of waste helping the septic system to successfully complete its role.

Many of today’s most common household cleaning products, hand soaps, and detergents contain anti-bacterial and antiseptic chemicals. These products interfere with the natural process that occurs in your septic tank. BIO-TAB® is an environmentally friendly septic tank additive that ensures your tank stays in proper working order.

What makes Bio-Tab® Superior

Advanced Formula: Bio-Tab® is a highly concentrated tablet of bacteria (both aerobic and anaerobic) and enzymes that act as a biological activator for septic tanks. In short, Bio-Tab® helps septic systems work like they were intended.

Easy-to-Use: Unlike most competitor’s dusty powders or messy liquids, Bio-Tab® is an easy to use tablet form. There’s also a handy tracking sticker on the top of each bottle to track the tablets used per month. Professionally packaged in a small jar (one jar contains a full year’s supply), you can easily store Bio-Tab® without fear of spilling harsh chemicals in your home.

Safe: Composed of organisms deemed safe by the EPA, Bio-Tab® is non-toxic to humans and animals. It is a non-corrosive and non-poisonous product that will not harm plumbing or septic systems.

The Bio-Tab® concept has been designed with you in mind. The combination of tablet form and technologically advanced chemistry assures you of consistent product performance and dosage. These concentrated, time release tablets allow you to easily treat your septic system without the inconvenience of messy liquids or dusty powders.

How BIO-TAB® Works

Bio-Tab®’s carefully constructed tablet form sinks to the bottom of your septic tank where build-up problems begin. While powders and liquids can wash over the surface with little effect, Bio-Tab®’s composition of enzymes and bacteria allows it to gradually dissolve to create a growing area of activity at the bottom of the tank that digests and liquefies organic waste.

– When Bio-Tab® is first added to the septic system, the tablet sinks to the bottom of the tank where there is little to no oxygen. This is where the anaerobic bacteria work best – in the absence of oxygen. Here they solubilize and dissolve the solids and sludge. The liquid then passes into the drain field to be absorbed into the ground.

– Once in the drain field, liquid waste is exposed to the air where aerobic bacteria, which works in the presence of oxygen, can continue the breakdown process. This allows the natural filter action of the surrounding ground to remain unclogged in order to naturally absorb and purify the waste.

– Because Bio-Tab® is able to establish itself by working from the inside out, using it will aid and support the natural digestion of waste, helping your septic system to successfully complete its role and maintain good working condition.

Directions for Use

  • For best results, we recommend the following treatment for every 1,000 gallons of septic tank capacity. The initial application should be repeated after every pumping.
  • For the first application, flush 3 tablets down the toilet to establish action, flushing twice
  • Use 1 tablet each month thereafter to maintain the proper level of bacterial activity, flushing twice with each dosage

Comparison Chart:



  • Bio-Tab® has a shelf life of about 5 years as long as its kept dry.
  • It’s best to store Bio-Tab® in a cool dry place. Room temperature is fine. Just avoid extreme heat
  • Each jar of Bio-Tab® contains a desiccant packet to help absorb any excess humidity.
