The difference between the Starter Pack and the 2 pack of Flush-It?

The Starter Pack is for use for either new systems or when your system is in trouble – i.e. producing smell or soggy drain fields or overflowing. These two sachets have a higher count of Beneficial Bacteria in and you use the two sachets in the first week – a shock dose. If you have two toilets, use one sachet in the toilet furthest from the septic tank and 2 days later use the other one in the second toilet. After that you should be able to go to one sachet per month for the whole system. The Flush-It two pack, 3 pack or 12 pack are suitable to maintain a system that is working, but by using Flush-It – one sachet per month, will cut down on pump outs and keep both the drain field and septic tank healthy and working efficiently and smell free.

Why does my bathroom still smell when I have just cleaned it?

Because the pipe that runs from the grating to the UBend collects toothpaste, body wash, shampoo etc. then hair and other material sticks to it – this becomes smelly and makes your bathroom “wooffy” even when it is clean.  (Don’t forget the floor drain as well).  Use Drainpower – just a cupful down each outlet last thing at night will solve the problem.
