Yup, can't remember the brand but we get a can of it at the hardware store and generally dump it in in the Fall. (haven't this year) Anyway, first time we used it, nobody had used the septic tank awhile so we had it pumped, then found out 2 peple didn't make enough solids to really make it perk, so i flushed a few bucket of cowpies down there too. When i dumped the treatment in, it looked like clean water and i didn't see anything happen for about a month so i thought it was wasted money but then i noticed there was no snow on the drainfield. Those darn enzymes generated enough heat to keep that whole area melted all winter, regardless of snowfall. It was supposed to activate things in the septic tank and unclog the drainfield and it apparently did. The extra warmth kept the house's vent pipes open too.
