Once you get a colony of bacteria going in a septic tank there's no need of adding anything. It'll keep on going like the energizer bunny! Just feed it the normal household flushings, and you're set to go. It is a good idea to get the tank pumped from time to time, to remove the undigestable solids that will build up, (dirt, for instance,) that will build up, overflow, and finally clog the drain system. Even when you pump the tank almost dry, the bacteria will rebound and be back strong by the time the tank is refilled. Bacteria has a extremely fast reproduction rate. A reputable septic tank cleaning service can advise you as to how often you should pump, depends on number of people in house, size of tank, etc. Also, septic systems thrive on plenty of liquid. Don't bypass the septic tank with laundry, sinks, etc.
