"It's absolutely true. Our super-sluggish drainfield was beyond fixing, or so we were told. After years of having to ration our laundry loads per day and not taking full-tub baths, we tried Septic-Flow. (Note: this is what we did to fix our issue -- this is not advice or a recommendation for what you should do.) Our process began with pumping the septic tank and then adding four gallons of Septic-Flow and one mega bottle of Dawn dish detergent directly into the empty septic tank. One year later, we repeated this process. What followed was the miracle! One year after the second treatment, we inspected the tank. Water levels were 100% normal, draining was smooth and no more to-the-lid scum layer. Our septic system is like new. I couldn't believe it happened, but it did. So, 2 treatments for $340 or so versus $3000 to dig a new drainfield. Septic-Flow worked for us. Awesome product!"
"Worked on my hard clay soil with water softener!"
"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."
"Saved Our System!"
"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."

“Saved me $20K!”
“This product works great! I was facing a $20K engineered replacement for my leach field when it started to fail. Two jugs later and my leach field is functioning again, a friend recommended this product to me and I have done the same since. I will now use it twice a year as maintenance.”
“Miracle in a Bottle!”
“Septic-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 went a different route but I am glad I stuck to my gut feeling and purchased Septic-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 !!”
“Would recommend this to anyone”
“I had two wet spots come up on my drain field, I first thought it was from all the rain we'd had over the winter. Rain stopped but wet spots remained, I ordered this product hoping it would help. I poured it in the drain line and after a couple of weeks wet spots started drying up, last week we got 3.70 inches of rain and previous spots are still dry. I would recommend this product and will buy it again myself.”
“A company that actually CARES”
“Septic water being force to flow above ground. The support agent called to help trouble shoot issue and offer several suggestion to check before I send money for product. If problem is something that the product can not repair the tech will direct you to a better solution, etc. There can be many issued that may not be your LEACH FIELD. Thank you for being concerns about your CUSTOMER and for CARING; there are not many company the go that extra mile.”
“This product worked perfect for me.
The reviews for this product vary so greatly and I really think it is because those it did not work were trying to treat a problem they didn't really have. See this product is NOT a bacteria solution or sulfuric acid. Both of which would digest the contents of the drain field. So if you feel you have a blockage due do a tree root for instance then you need to hit it with acid or root killer. If you think it is because of grease or undigested material then hit it with a bacteria additive.
What this stuff does is pretty simple. It will seep down to the bottom of you drain field and REMOVE calcium and bio mat build up that block your drain field from draining. It will NOT kill the beneficial bacteria in your tank and drain field which is very important.Remember when it comes to your septic bacteria is your friend adding something that will kill the bacteria should always be your last solution.
I would highly recommend this stuff if you feel you have biomat, clay or calcium blocking your drain field.”
“Back to normal!”
“The last service was 20 years ago. I used several Roebic products and got minor improvement over three months. One gallon of this and we are back to normal two weeks later. Who knows? Maybe I needed both to clean up the whole system. I'm not Superman with X-ray vision so I'll get another gallon and make sure the drain field got the dose it needed.”
“Brand new house with brand new septic system and drainfield in 2006. In 2013 drainfield failed and was replaced. In 2016 I was told drainfield was in failure again and needed replaced. Toilets and tubs were backing up. I had it pumped and put 4 gallon shock treatment into clean out NOT directly into drainfield 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 drainfield has been dying too so that shows the water is going down and not up. Good signs so far, hoping for the best.”
“Saved us a septic nightmare of seriously locked-up soil from sodium buildup”
“Over the last five years we were having septic grey water moving out into our yard from our leach field which included part of the distribution box. The smell was unbearable, especially if the wind moved in the direction of our house. We tried all kinds of treatments including some bacteria and enzyme ones off of Amazon, but the grey water in the leach field was still evident after trying many products. After speaking with a professional septic engineer we determined that the problem was that our water softener was a huge issue pumping high amounts of sodium into the septic field and it caused the soil to become locked up what they call "dead pan". He suggested Septic Flow as a solution to try before digging up the septic field, which was going to cost in the $10-$12k range. We purchased Septic Flow and added two gallons through the last toilet in the house going out to the septic field the first week, and then again in two weeks. We began to see significant improvement to the flow levels of the tank after measuring it before and after. The puddled grey water disappeared in a few weeks and the smell is 100% gone! Needless to say we are very happy. I want to mention that we redirected our water softener flush cycle to an exterior dry well pit (I wouldn't mention to county as its likely frowned upon) Every year since then, we've added a two gallons of Septic Flow to our septic system and we have had no problems at all with our septic whatsoever. We have been able to reduce our septic pump outs to once every three years which save us $450 a year we don't have to pump it out. PS We called the company and their septic professionals were super knowledgeable and were the once who suggested diverting or water softener to the outside dry well vs pumping all that sodium into the tank. No one ever told us that sodium can lock up your septic system not just from water softeners but every day detergents like tide and bar soaps. Very appreciative of the product and the fact that it has saved us so much time and money!”
“This is a followup review. After having a slow drainage trench for over 20 years I found Septic Flow. Our 35 inch deep access riser would fill with 8 - 18 inches of effluent every day and by the next morning it would be back down only to fill again. Our tank guy kept telling us we needed a new drainage system at a cost of about 10 grand. I found this product and applied it using two gallons the first week directly to the outlet line after my service man jetted it. Then another gallon about two weeks later (it took that long for the 1000 gallon tank to refill after being pumped). Then another gallon the week after that. After three months the riser is completely dry. A condition we have not seen in over 20 years. Buy this stuff because it works!”
"Worth the price."
“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”
"I had a wet spot on my lawn...not anymore!"
“I had a wet spot on my septic; I used 2 gallons in the distribution tank and I no longer have the wet spot!”
"Seriously great product."
“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 clams to do. I will be buying again for maintenance.”
"Way better than Drano!"
“We have had septic problems for several years now. The septic contractor wanted $8,700 to dig up and replace our entire clogged septic field. Obviously, we wanted another way to solve this problem. I’m glad I found this product, as it really broke up the sodium buildup in the soil, and got our septic system moving again. Great product and saved us a ton of money! Will be rebuying in the future.”
"Septic-Flow took care of my drain fields and soggy lawn!"
“This product is truly amazing. It actually cleared up my drain fields. For two years, I had spots in my yard (about 4 yards in radius) that was smelly, soggy and growing in radius. After five applications of Septic-flow Septic Drainfield Repair those spots totally dried up. It's been 2 1/2 months since I first purchased this product and with no regret, no more embarrassing outdoor odor, no more soggy ground. I will continue to maintain my drain fields with Septi-Flow.”
