    Rid X is recommended by my plumber and septic service. It’s an enzyme that helps get rid of the sludge. My parents used it for 30 years and I’ve been using it for 6 years.

    If you are already having issues and require a monthly maintenance, I would stay away from them.

    I prefer Roebic brand myself, and they have an emergency treatment for the septic system that I was able to restore my clients system to working order with 2 treatments. Either of these are not toxic.

    Rid X is meant to keep the bacteria in your septic system working to break down what goes in the septic system. It is not harmful--it is helpful. You don't mention the age of your septic system. It is good to have it cleaned out every 2-3 years by a professional sewer pumper. Hopefully it is not too old and will need replacing soon.
