Safe for Septic System?
[Return to Topics]

I need a product to clean deposits from bathroom fixtures - toilet bowl, sinks, shower door glass,etc. Paul Harvey advertises a product - don't recall the name but it's a three letter acronym - that sounds pretty good. I've seen it in the store, but have been reluctant to buy and use it since I don't know if it's safe for the septic tank. It does say that it's biodegradable - does that mean it's safe for septic systems? Does anybody use this product and have any comments?

I have used C.L.R for years with no side effects on my septic...and it really works...regards

Manitoba...Thanks! I went out and bought some. It's good to know for sure that it won't kill off all the good bacteria and shut down the septic system.

If you find that CLR does not work for you, try
The Works for toilet bowl cleaner. If there is
a lime buildup (gray to green) Lime-Away. Where
we live, CLR never worked because our water is
so bad with lime, and in the country areas-rust!
Chuck, you are so lucky not to have the water
problems we have!

Chuck, WA    Posted 04-15-2002 at 18:46:50       [Reply]  [Send Email] don't know how lucky - I'd say blessed! - we really are. The water is clear and tastes wonderful. The deposits I'm working on are minimal - just a little in the 4-5 months we've lived here. There is a good bit on the shower door glass that I want to try to clean off - I don't think the previous owners dried it after use, or just never did much to keep it clear. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give CLR a chance and see how it goes.
