"We were to the point where our septic drain field (we have a drain well, in the southwest USA), was failing. They had done a repair and even done an acid clean and it was still filling to the top with normal, even conservative use. It was flooding the backyard and backing up into the house. This was our last ditch effort. I thought it might work because the previous owners had been draining the softener into the septic and figured it had caused sodium buildup. We used two gallons of this when the drain field was almost full (it is a 30 ft. deep pipe that drains through holes in the sides). After a week it was still full but maybe just a little lower. We used another two gallons. Next time we looked it was almost to the bottom. We used another two gallons about two weeks later for good measure. Have not had a single issue since. The next step was drilling a new drain field pipe at $10,000+. This was our last hope. It worked. Couldn't believe it. We plan to use two gallons every six months for maintenance. I would say, if you have septic issues that are stemming from the drain field not draining the water, this would be a good thing to try."

"I had a big disgusting, smelly wet spot in my back yard where my drain field is. I live outside of Raleigh, NC with heavy clay soil and the previous owner of the house had a water softener that backwashed into the septic for 15 years. This locked up the soil pretty solid and the drainage was minimal. I fixed the backwash issue but the drainage was still terrible.
My leach field consists of 3 dry wells coming off a distribution box. I poured 2 gallons into the worst one, and 1 gallon into the other 2 through the distribution box and waited. It took about a month but the area is finally drying out and the smell is much better.
I will probably repeat this process again in 2 months then leave it alone and see how long it's good for."

“Septi-Flow has saved me a ton of money, after having three different septic companies come out after I told them the problem I was having they all assumed I needed my leach field replaced. I for one didn't have that much money for a leach field as they all wanted $20,000 to replace the leach field and secondly, they just went off what I said without actually looking into the problem, which if they did actually look into the problem and confirmed I needed a new leach field then yes I probably would have gone a different route but I am glad I stuck to my gut feeling and purchased Septi-Flow because a couple of days after using this product the problems I was having went away and they haven't returned. If you are having problems with your septic/ leach field then I would advise you to try this alternative first before spending ten to twenty thousand dollars for a new leach field, this has truly helped me a lot !!”

“Brand new house with a brand new septic system and drain field in 2006. In 2013 drain field failed and was replaced. In 2016 I was told the drain field was in failure again and needed replacing. Toilets and tubs were backing up. I had it pumped and put 4-gallon shock treatment into cleanout NOT directly into the drain field as suggested as I had no access to it nor did I have a distribution box.
I then put 1 gallon in each week for 4 weeks for a total of 8 gallons in a month.
No backups and the flow is perfect so far. The green grass only on top of the drain field has been dying too so that shows the water is going down and not up. Good signs so far, hoping for the best.”

“My system was slowing down and the tub was draining slow. This helped a great deal. Winter always slows the septic system but this sped it up in about a week”

“Great product, solved my problem within 24 hours of using. After spending about $300 on various products at Home Depot and after watching YouTube videos on septic bio-mat problems I realized I needed to try this product. I'm so glad I did. Now I know, there will be no need to spend thousands to replace my drainage field as this product does indeed do what it claims to do. I will be buying again for maintenance.”

"I have a 20-year-old mound system that was leaking and pooling underground. I tried this product and within 10 to 15 days it stopped the problem. I used 2 treatments and plan to give another one for good measure next month."

"This stuff really works! We were facing a complete emergency drain field replacement in February. I researched and found Septi-Flow. The sodium damage and blockage of the drain field made sense, so we gave this a try. We put 2-1/2 bottles directly into the yard based on a YouTube video we watched. The remaining bottle and a half went into the toilets. We have seen the grass return to Green and the drain field is working again. I waited to post this to be sure it worked. It has been 6 months and we are still flushing fine! I also, to aid the system, changed to all-natural cleaning and laundry products. Apparently, fabric softener is one of the worst offenders to septic systems!"
"UPDATE: 9 months and still working! I added another bottle through the toilet about 2 months ago. I plan to do a bottle every 2-3 months to keep it going! Still haven’t had to spend $4,000 on a new drain field! Thank you, Septi-Flow!!!"
