In January of 2011 I heard the gurgling sound of septic backup coming from my drains. I called the septic pumping company to have my cesspool pumped. I have no idea how old our system is but we have lived in the house for over 25 years. About 6 years ago we added lateral drainage areas to our system with clean out access because our cesspool was sluggish. When they pumped that cesspool we inspected the clean outs to the laterals and noticed they were full. The company dumped some chemical in them in hopes of allowing them to drain. The following week I checked the cesspool and noticed the water level was again over the drainpipe. I called the company back to have the cesspool pumped again. This time they removed over 3000 gallons, which I hoped, would allow the laterals to rest.
I started doing research and learned that leach fields can become coated with a tar like substance called biomat that would prevent any water from percolating into the ground. I then looked for products that would clean this biomat and hopefully restore the function of my system.
My search took me to your company. I spoke with a very knowledgeable person who asked me a lot of questions before selling me any product. After a lengthy and informative conversation he recommended the Ultimate Septic System Shock Kit. When the kit arrived, I followed the included instructions for a 4-week treatment process. After the 5th week I looked in the cesspool and found that the tank level was right at the drainpipe and my lateral drainage areas were again accepting water. I also noticed that there was no scum floating on the top of the water in the cesspool. This is something that always used to be there.
Your product did just as you said it would and I will continue to use the Bio-Paks to maintain my system. I have and will continue to recommend your product to everyone I know with septic systems. Thank you so much for your help.
I received your BioMat-X Septic Treatment Product on Aug. 27 and used it on Aug. 28 at 1 PM. I mixed it per your specification. I let it sit for one hour after I mixed it, and then poured it down the vent pipe. There were no noticeable initial results.
I repeated the same process on Wednesday Aug 2 at 11:30 AM and saw no noticeable results yet. On the morning of Sept.7 when I checked my pipe the water was all gone. We have continued to use the same mix of the material that you sent me and yesterday we finished the gallon.
We have found that the sand filter seems to be operating normally and that while there are some ups and downs with the water level which seem to be from the higher water use entering the septic system with washing and dishwasher etc. It has been without much build up of the level of water in the pipe.
We are now using one packet of the other septic powder material in the septic tank per week. We have lived here for 22 years and had no prior problems with the septic system so I never had occasion to look into the vent pipe and as a result I have no frame of reference to compare our current results.
I can say this, the system is acting as it did before the problem and we will continue to use your products to keep the results that we have gotten so far! Thank you.
Five years ago, small tree roots caused my sewer line to clog.I had a plumber snake the line.After that, I began to use RootX once per year to keep the sewer line clear of tree roots.I have had no new problems.
More recently, I tried Bio-D drain cleaner to fix a slow draining sink.It worked quickly to eliminate the clog.I now use Bio-D regularly to keep my drains clear.
For the majority of my life, I have searched for environmentally friendly products to use in my home and business.Unfortunately, many of those products did not work as well as those with the less safe chemicals.It is great to have products, like RootX and Bio-D that work well and are safe for the planet.

REX-BAC-T was the key! "Job Well Done!"
That's what my customer said to me, after rejuvenating his 1200 gallon cesspool. I want to thank REX-BAC-T Technologies, for their assistance and guidance in my endeavors in helping my client bring his failed cesspool back to life.
My initial observation showed the cesspool approximately 2 feet from overflowing out of the 4" stand-pipe rising from the cesspool well. I had my septic pumper remove 1,000 gallons from the cesspool to initially to relieve my customers system to allow for the continued usage of their septic system.
Subsequently, I applied the Ultimate Septic System 'Shock' Treatment to the cesspool and 3 toilets, that same Friday morning. The septic tank was not accessible due to logistical issues with the current landscaping which will be exposed and pumped down at a later date.
Come Tuesday morning, I checked the cesspool, and it had dropped virtually to the bottom. I was very impressed with the cesspool treatments performance, as was my customer, who witnessed his emptied & rejuvenated cesspool.
A few days later I gave it a second treatment, as per instructions. My customer couldn't be more pleased.
I for one, am very pleased at the performance of these products. I will continue to use them in the future. Thank you again for a fine product that 'really' works, as well as, being 'environmentally friendly'.
I am purchasing your septic system products because my neighbor has used your products for 5 years and had his tank pumped as a routine maintenance program. The septic pumper asked what he was using because there was no odors and no solids.

My wife found REX-BAC-T Technologies on the web after I failed to find caustic soda locally (which I used in the past). I phoned your office and explained that I have a 1000 gallon septic tank with a 1000 gallon leaching pit (32 years old). He explained in detail the workings of the system and whit it would take to attack the problem. My leach pit was full to the brim and would eventually harm the septic tank.
They proposed their AeroClear cesspool aeration system. Per the instructions I installed the pump and aerator and ran it 24/7 for 4 days.
After 4 days I checked the leach pit and was pleasantly surprised to discover the level had receded 2 and ½ feet (the leach pit is 5 feet deep). Of course I phoned back with the good news and of course I purchased the aeration equipment. I will continue to purchase and use your products.
The staff could not have been more understanding and helpful. And it was obvious they took my problem as if it were their own.
My experience with your Bio-D Natural Drain Cleaner:
I had a clogged bathroom sink that would hardly drain. After trying my small hand snake under the sink I wasn't getting anywhere so I found your drain product. After one overnight 4 oz. treatment of your Bio-D Natural Drain Cleaner, it started to drain faster and occasionally bubble. I did what the label called for and repeated the treatment that evening and the following day after running hot water in the sink it seemed it wasn't getting better, but, had reverted back to draining even slower!! After watching it hardly drain, I thought "that just doesn't make sense for it to no longer even making the bubbling noise. Maybe I may have to try it one more night". I was just getting ready to pour some more in the sink, when I heard a glug noise and right before my eyes the sink drained better than it ever has!! I can now run both cold and hot faucets on full without the water level even rising. I am very impressed with your product and am telling all my co-workers about a real drain cleaner that is also good smelling and eco friendly.
Thank you so much for such a nice smelling good working product.
Just a quick note, I have a cesspool that is at least 100 years old, that I was having pumped every 3 months at $200.00 a pop. Last Nov I purchased your BioMat-X septic treatment and followed the directions. It worked for my system, the liquid level never got above the outlet pipe from the house. I would check every week to see if it was working and it was. I am adding your septic Bio-Paks to my order this year. Thanks for a product that does what you say it does and them some.
I recently purchased your BioMat-X Septic Cleaner, OxyCal, and Septic Bio-Paks and they preformed just as you described. The water in my leach field has disappeared! I don't know where it went but I do know that it saved me a $3000 plus leach field replacement. Thanks again for a job well done :).
To Whom it May Concern;
I spoke with someone a couple of weeks back about my septic system as to what I should see or notice to know the system was working, other than the clearance of the problems I had in the fall. I told him what I was seeing since I started to use the REX-BAC-T septic products. He was very helpful and explained to me what was happening in the septic system and what I may see in the future. As well he asked me to send a note along about my septic problem the situation now and he would offer me a bucket of Septic Bio-Paks when needed for a discount.
The septic system was installed in 1968 and we have lived in the house since 1971. Over the years the system has worked well and it was pumped on a regular basis about every three years. For most of these years the system handled a family of five. The septic person I first used (who has since passed on) told me to put yeast down the system every month to help the system work. I did this religiously and the system worked well until this past fall. In the last couple of years the thing I noticed was the snow over the tank didn’t melt any more quickly than the rest of the yard which was not the case in past years. I called the septic folks a year or so back and they looked at the tank and said it looked like it was working okay.
Last fall I noticed the down stairs toilet was not flushing as well and on occasion when a wash was draining there was gurgling in that toilet which had never happened before. I knew something wasn’t right and as well knew what the cost would be to replace the system. So I went on the web and did some research and came up with several companies who offered products for septic problems.
I spoke to one company and they suggested different types of his company products at about $3,500 with the comment this was better than $10,000 for a new system. I said there has to be something more reasonable and continued to look and investigated many different companies on the web. I honed in on REX-BAC-T Technologies called the number and spoke to a knowledgeable person. He was easy to talk with, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. No pressure, just understanding and suggestions as to which way to go. Consequently, he suggested a couple of his protects and at a price one heck of a lot less expensive than $3,500. So I ordered a bottle of BioMat-X Ultimate Septic Cleaner and a bucket of Bio-Paks (bulk). I started with the liquid BioMat-X Ultimate Septic Cleaner per the instructions. As well he sent along a free package of OxyCal Oxygenating Compound which I added to the system with the BioMat-X liquid per instructions. I noticed after the third week the gallon bottle was empty so I called. He was very helpful sent me another gallon of BioMat-X at no cost. He said packaging obviously messed up some how when filling the gallon bottle. After I used all the BioMat-X I placed two bulk septic bio-packs down the toilet once a week. At this point I am using one pack a week.
After about two weeks of using the liquid BioMat-X the toilet and wash were back to normal and as the snow fell this winter the area over the septic tank is the first palace to loose the snow and ice so something is certainly WORKING. They advised me what I may see in the spring in the leaching field area when the weather warms up.
As to this point the septic news is very good and I will add the Bio-Paks regularly and look to see what the leaching area signs are in the spring. The system is working properly and certainly better than last fall.
Please advice me as to how I handle my next septic Bio-Paks purchase. Thank you. BB
Our home was built 14 years ago. All was fine with our septic tank with infiltrators until
about the end of 2007. The toilet in the basement did not flush properly sometimes. We had lots of family in for the Christmas Season. About a week or so into 2008, the basement toilet wouldn’t flush and stuff was coming up through the basement shower drain.
I immediately had the septic tank pumped out. The tank was full to the top. Nothing was going out into the infiltrators. The septic guy suggested that everything was plugged up and the total replacement of the whole system might be necessary.
I had heard about REX-BAC-T septic products and other strong chemical treatments. I contacted REX-BAC-T Technologies and someone immediately came to our home and brought 2 types of treatments. The one product called BioMat-X Septic Cleaner was for the infiltrator. We injected a mixture of warm water and a couple pints of this product into the septic tank discharge line every Wednesday for 6 weeks. We also added a dry product directly into the septic tank at the same time. I now flush one packet of this product down the toilet the first of every month.
It is now 5 months later and all is well. The septic system treatment products did the job. Two weeks ago, we had 15 people in for Memorial Day weekend. There was a lot of water used — showers taken, toilets flushed, washing machine doing many loads of wash — and the septic system worked like it did 15 years ago.
Many thanks to REX-BAC-T products and people who very kindly made it work. Now my next door neighbor uses the septic products and my brother-in-law in Jefferson, Ga. also uses it. I would strongly recommend these products to anyone with a septic system.
We have ordered our third drum of EP-301. The SAGE (Société d'aménagement et de gestion environnementale) of 31 Mile Lake in Quebec, Canada, has installed 27 individual camping sites, each with a picnic table, a fire pit and a dry toilet. Our marine patrol meets with campers to sensitize them to the importance of respecting the environment. They also maintain the sites and use your product in the toilets, about once every few weeks. The result is amazingly positive: no bad odors, and a much faster composting of solid waste! Everyone having similar toilets should use this product. Thanks for developing it and making it available internationally!

Fortunately we are on a septic tank we're only two blocks away from the ocean. 2-3 years ago, the County demanded that everyone who lived right along the ocean had to be on a sewer line -- big mess for a long time, but absolutely critical to the health of the ocean. This is only for five miles through Kailua Kona, but that's the biggest density.
Across the street from us, is a cesspool, and no one seems to have any problems with either in this subdivision.
We have one toilet which clogs and finally a root-rooter type came and cut out a bunch of roots - probably from a palm tree nearby. So, we'll use the RootX first, as you suggest and use it annually. The distance from the toilet to the septic tank is 68 feet, so we need all 4 lbs. at once use.
Thanks for your support and recommendations. We are using your cesspool bio-packets for good measure since we don't have any issues now.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the Bio-G Grease trap treatment product. Our grease trap had slowly lost its efficiency and required cleaning more often than it used to. After using the Bio-G product for the past six months the grease trap is back working the way it should. Thanks for your recommendation!
First, I want you to know that your AeroClear aeration system is working fine. The level at the output of the second tank is at the bottom on the outlet pipe and I can hear the fluid running down the pipe into the field. I understand from your comments that holding a low level in the winter is a real positive and I wanted wait to see what happened when it turned cold before declaring the introduction of aeration a success.
I intended to bring my success to the attention of our Board of Health but I spoke with the Health Officer and he discouraged pushing the aeration because he feared that our State people would not approve of it. He promised to check it out with them. I can't for the life of me understand what basis they would have for objecting and I intend to push forward with the B of H. I will check myself but I have been laid up for several months.
I will pass along anything that comes out of meeting with the Gov types, local and State. I know of two families that could benefit from the system but neither seems eager. Both are suppose to come by to look at my installation and see how it is working. If I'm successful in getting the Gov. to recognize it, I expect a lot of interest.
Thank you again for all of your help.
I am the building manager for our property here in Austin, Texas and I have been using the product your septic system treatment product EP-303 for the past two years. The office building we're in was built in 2000 and rated for 55 person occupancy. We now have approximately 125 persons in the building and our 500 gallon septic tank fills up fast because we are over capacity. I acquired the product from a company that was pumping our tank and they told me to start putting EP-303 in the tank once a month to loosen the solids. What I do is flush the product down the toilet and have the tank pumped on a routine basis. This has worked wonders for us and the septic company that does the pumping. They tell me that it makes for very easy removal as opposed to having to break up any solids with the water hose and a staff prior to pump out. Thank you.
We are previous customers, and swear by your septic tank treatment products.
Thank you for a great product!
Thanks again for the cesspool aerator. I sealed the concrete manhole cover with sealant and it helped it was not coming from the shower drain. Cesspool has been holding up its almost two months now that we didn't have to pump. It's about 5 feet to the top of the cesspool. I hope the longer the water stays at that level the bacteria eats up the junk and soften ups the walls and it begins to drain down a little more. I don't know if they made a leach field piping at the 25 feet level?
Thanks again for coming over and checking out my situation. With much thanks. Dan
I want to thank you for sending me a product for my drain root problems that not only was so affordable but saved my life!!! My house had old roots that were blocking the system to a point where you could not use toilet, shower or washer and Roto-Rooter wanted to charge me $2000 to fix it........money I did not have and now I know with Root-X I did not need to spend. The 2 doses of root-x cleared up the roots and I have not had problem since. Thank you for explaining everything to me. thank you so very much.
It's a miracle as far as I am concerned. Would you want to pay $80 or $2000?!!
I've tried box after box of Rid-X to get the septic system to work. Spent a fortune and still had a swamp where the birds thought it was a place for them to bath. And the barn cats drank from it. So not knowing what else to do, I found REX-BAC-T. Much stronger and better product, I thought it couldn’t hurt . So I called after reading all the information. The salesman was very helpful and suggested a plan to get my septic to work. I did what he said and in a few months I had it working. I never forget to put the packets down. It sure was a worry gone, and a money saver thanks to REX-BAC-T.
This is a great product. When I purchase my home 3 years ago, there were awful odors originating from my septic tank. RIDX was recommended to me but it was costly, a coworker told me to try REX BAC T, and voila', NO MORE ODORS. Glory to God!
We have ordered your Bio-G Max grease trap treatment before. It works great.
Per our conversation last week would like to inform you and your affiliates about the progress I am having with my septic system thanks to your product. I have lived in my home for over 30 years. I was never fully instructed on the proper maintenance of the system. About 20 years ago the system began needing pumping every few years. The companies that pumped suggested that we use sulfuric acid to treat the system when it was empty. Well, this turned out to be nothing more than a “Quick Fix” because it would only last a few years before would need to have the system re-pumped and then the frequency of the pumping increased, Finally, the government made the use of the acid treatment illegal so I was told my only recourse was to dig a new cesspool. I researched septic companies on the internet and I found your company was the most reasonable for home owners. You advised me to get the ph in line. I purchased your Bio-Packs of the bacteria in a dry form. I was advised to put two directly in the cesspool immediately and to flush two down the toilet into the septic tank once a week. Although the results were not instantaneous, I began to notice that the percolation was improving. Last month I appreciated a 40% improvement in the percolation. Believe it or not, the trees nearby are getting healthy and are producing new growth. I know this is a direct result of the percolation. Obviously the bacteria are doing their job and the septic biomat is disintegrating enough to encourage better percolation. Thank for your product. You have made a believer out of me!
I am writing to inform you we are very impressed and satisfied with your product Bio-G Max Grease Trap Concentrate. Your price is very reasonable compared to an earlier product we were using. That product cost was three times higher than yours. When we open the grease trap after using REX-BAC-T Bio-G Max grease trap treatment, there is no smell and the cleaner is happy doing the grease trap cleaning. Thank you for your wonderful product.
I received your product on Friday, applied it according to the directions that evening, and since Saturday morning I have yet to detect any trace of nasty odor coming out of the bathroom sink!....there had been a FOUL odor for the past 6 months! Thank you.

I have tried several products in order to eliminate or decrease the clogging of my Grease Trap and sewer line. NONE WORKED, PERIOD. Then I tried your BIO-G treatment and........"IT WORKS". GREAT PRODUCT. I understand the basic principal of how it works, but not completely. All I know for sure is, "IT DOES WHAT YOU SAY IT WILL DO". Thanks for a great product, it's an easy solution to my grease trap and sewer line problems. The BIO-PUMP never forgets to give the correct dose to the system, sometimes before closing my restaurant I would forget to apply the BIO-G . With the pump I no longer have to remember, thanks for one less thing to worry about. You have a great product, keep up the good work. Thank You.
Thanks for a good product! We received it today, and have used it in the past. Keep up the good work!

In Dec 2005 our septic system backed up and we were told to plan on installing a new leach field. We live on the side of a hill leaving no room for a new field. We would have to tear up our small yard to replace lines in the existing area. After replacing the inlet and outlet connections in our 750 Gal three compartment septic tank we contacted Rex-bac T and have been pleased with the results ever since. March 3rd of this year was the last time out tank was pumped and the water level in compartment three has stayed consistent since. We have even seen new grass growing along in the leach field area signaling the reopening of old unused leach lines. Technical support at Rex-Bac-T was extremely helpful in guiding us through this process and seemed sincerely concerned about our success. In our case it appears we have dodged a huge expense and total mess and I would recommend this product to anyone with like problems. I failed to mention our house is over fifty years old and to the best of my knowledge no new lines have been added. We have also started pumping our gray water up to a small grove of trees at the top of the property.
Mount Vernon, NY
Since I bought my home in 8/01 I've spent hundreds of dollars on my sewer line backing up - I saw a commercial about using RID-X monthly in the sewer line. I was using it but it was very costly, so I went on-line and found Rex-Bac-T. I read the information and decided to give it a try. Since May 05 I've been using the product and to my surprise and amazement - I haven't had a backup since. Thank You for making such a great product. I am so relieved!!!! Alleuia!
In December of 2005, I ordered a 2 lb. box of RootX Foaming Root Killer at the recommendation of our plumber. We used it in the clean-out line to the sewer line. Root X worked great.
ROOTX - IT HAS WORKED!!
I will recommend the RootX tree root killer to anyone who has a problem with tree roots in their sewer lines.
It is with great appreciation that I take the time to write this letter of thanks to you. Approximately three years ago we moved into a new home with a full finished basement that had a sump pump installed to discard waste water. But soon a terrible odor occurred in the basement with a menacing pest, the annoying “Drain Fly”. The odor and the drain files were literally taking over our home. In desperation we tried two reputable extermination companies, but to no avail. As a last result my wife and I went out online to search for a remedy to our plaguing problems of foul odors and drain flies and with a streak of luck we found Rex-Bac-T. We decided to try Lift-EZE OC-500, we had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The results my friends were amazing. Not only are the foul odors gone but so are the annoying drain flies. Thanks so much for giving us control of our house again. A very satisfied customer.
About May of 2005, we started having problems with the septic tank. Whenever we washed clothes and the water was spinning out, the bathroom commode would act like it would overflow. We had the septic tank drained on June 1, 2005 and thought everything would work fine. The trouble still existed and we had to have the tank drained again on June 8th. The man who did the job stated that the septic tank was too small for the house and, if the problem persisted, we would have to have a new tank installed for approximately $3,500.
We contacted the REX-BAC-T company and were given some information concerning their product. They immediately shipped out a supply of their product, along with instructions as to cure our problem.
After we had used their product for two (2) weeks, our problem was showing signs of much improvement. We have not had any trouble since we started using the REX-BAC-T on June 22, 2005. We have been very pleased with their product, as well as the help and courtesy they have provided.
I ordered REX-BAC-T in November. We had just moved into a house that no one had lived in regularly for five years. I wasn't sure how long it had been since the septic tank had been taken care of. I was petrified that it was going to clog up and have to be replaced. I have been using the REX-BAC-T every month for four months now, and even with regular use, our septic system is working perfectly. Using the REX-BAC-T certainly gives me piece of mind. I am also especially pleased that the product is all natural and non-toxic.
This is our second order; we have been using it in our "Aerobic Septic System" for nearly a year. We can truly say that this product is well worth the purchase.
I was recently introduced your product through a friend and thank goodness. My family and I just moved into a new home but is actually about 4 years old and it is on a septic system. One of the things that we put in the real estate contract was that we wanted them to have the septic tank pumped. The owners refused, but because of circumstance we were forced to go ahead with the purchase. Our first weeks in the home were complete disarray; between careers, kid’s, and unpacking I must admit I was at times in a daze! Doesn’t it always seem like times like this are when something like the toilet backing up are the most common? My son had overflowed it and I am embarrassed to say 2 days went by before I even went back into the kids bathroom. I remember that I had the REX-BAC-T “bugs” I thought it was mainly for preventative stuff but as I was reading the label I thought it may help the clogged toilet. I didn’t hesitate to pour it in the toilet and left it alone. The last thing we needed was to have to pay a plumber to come out, unless they took Discover card it wouldn’t of happened! Several days passed and my son had a friend over. He didn’t know that the toilet was not working and went in and used it. My husband ran in but it was to late, expecting a messy overflow we were overjoyed to see that the toilet was back to normal! Thank GOD!!!!!! I have also treated some slow draining sinks and it has really made a difference. These products are great and I will continue to use them so something like this doesn’t happen again. Thank you!

Thanks for introducing me to your product. We have a kennel with multiple dog runs. As you know, waste removal is the biggest problem with raising dogs. We installed a septic tank system a few years back so we could wash down the runs on a regular basis. Once or twice a year we were having the tank pumped out. This was very time consuming and costly. Since the introduction of REX-BAC-T, my problems have been eliminated. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
Shelia’s Barbeque had major problems with grease trap and septic tank. We have not had any more grease problems since we started using REX-BAC-T.
When we built our new home in 2001, one of my main concerns was the construction and maintenance of an effective septic system. To insure our septic system would work effectively for the long term, we introduced REX-BAC-T into the system from day one.
REX-BAC-T has been part of our septic system maintenance routine for nearly three years. During this time, we have not had any septic system problems. I believe is directly related to the use of REX-BAC-T.
Have been using REX-BAC-T on new septic tank for several years. Tank has never been pumped and never a back-up. It works!
