Here in Wisconsin we had a mound system put in when we bought the place(old system failing). At that time a stipulation when "they" issued the permit was that the systym be pumped every three years. When the time comes we get a postcard in the mail that must be completed by a licensed waste hauler stating that he has pumped and inspected the system.
With this regular maintainence we haven't had any trouble at all and we don't use any additives although around here people claim value for about anything from the commercial additives to yeast to beer to cheese to rotted meat.
My humble opinion is that what you don't put into your system(things that will kill the bacteria) is more important than adding a witches brew in hopes of improving what nature has already got going to near perfection.
