Jessica(?) Welcome to the Router Forums!

Very informative! Thanks for sharing. Now, I have a serious question...My house is on a septic tank. Tubs, sinks, toilets and showers all go to the septic tank - which is typical in my area, except for cases where a sanitary sewer system is in use. The "items" in the septic tank are referred to as effluent (liquid) and solids. Bacteria break-down these "items" until they enter the drain field where they go into the soil. Eventually this becomes ground water.
Question: When SOAP is designated as ANTI-BACTERIAL, how does that affect the septic system? Am I killing the very bacteria that my system depends on?
