K-57 Septic System Cleaner is used to correct systems that are overworked and sluggish. Made up of special bacteria, K-57 provides a concentrated attack on clogged areas relieving overloaded spetic tanks, cesspools and drainfields. K-57 will not damage drains, pipes, disposal systems or porcelain because it contains no corrosive materials.
Roebic K-57 Septic and Cesspool Cleaner is a select blend of bacteria that work hard on liquefying sewage waste that may be causing the sluggishness or the clog, thereby restoring the system back to its proper working condition. At the first sign of sluggishness immediately use Roebic K-57 Septic and Cesspool Cleaner. This product may be used as often as needed. Instructions for use may be found on the bottle label.
During the everyday operation of even a properly maintained septic system, small organic particles manage to get into the leachfield through the septic tank effluent. In the septic tank there is a structure called a baffle. The baffle acts to keep solids from entering the tank's effluent pipe which leads to the leachfield distribution box, however, the baffle cannot stop very small organic particles which are suspended in the liquid effluent. These almost microscopic particles are carried by the effluent past the baffle, and out into the leachfield.
Q: What is the difference between the K-37 Septic Tank Treatment and the K-57 Septic System Cleaner?
A: The Roebic K-37 Septic Tank Treatment is used to treat the septic tank and is part of our Quarterly Maintenance Program. The K-57 Septic System Cleaner is our emergency care product that is to treat the system if it is running sluggish and may be showing signs of a backup.
Q: Can I use K-57 Septic System Cleaner instead of K-37 Septic Tank Treatment?
A: K-57 is the emergency care product to treat the entire system when you are experiencing a backup or a sluggish running system. We suggest using the K-57 to help get the system running properly then starting the Quarterly Maintenance Program which entails four Roebic products through out the year, K-37 Septic Tank Treatment, K-570 Leach and Drain Field Opener, Roebic K-87 Soap Grease Paper Digester, and Roebic K-97 Main Line Cleaner.
Q: How long after I treat with the K-57 Septic System Cleaner should I wait to apply the K-37 Septic Tank Treatment?
A: Depending on the condition of the system sometimes you may need to treat with the K-57 a couple of times. You should wait a period of about three to four weeks between treatments. If the system is running well after one treatment of the K-57 you can apply the K-37 the following month and is suggested to start the System Maintenance Program.
Q: Can I apply K-57 Septic System Cleaner to the Distribution Box to get it to the drain field faster?

Applying the product in the toilet will allow you to get the full affect from the product and allow it to treat the entire system.
Q: Can I use K-57 Septic System Cleaner to treat my drain field if I can not locate the K-570 Leach and Drain Field Opener?
