Should you treat your septic tank besides having it sucked out?

That is a question for your county health department, and possibly the contractor that pumps your tank. Some of them may have treatments they offer and could recommend, and it may require some testing to see if you have the proper bacteria present, but that is not something OSU Extension offers testing for, and regulations could vary by county, so it is something that needs to be asked of your local health department.

Thanks,
