Q. Is it safe to use a commercial dishwasher detergent in my machine at home?

A. Bubble Bandit has been especially formulated to offer the power of a institutional product without the corrosive agents used in extreme high temperature commercial machines.

Q. Is Bubble Bandit safe to use in our septic system?

A. Bubble Bandit is safe for your septic system. Prior to July of 2010 all dishwasher detergents contained various amounts of phosphates, for the last fifty years or so, all septic systems in the country dealt with phosphorous within their septic systems. Soil capacity to retain phosphorus is large compared with the load through a normal residential septic tank. An exception occurs when septic drain fields are located in sandy or coarser soils on property adjoining a body of water.
