    I know that any yeast that goes to my septic tank/system is actually good for it. But, what about sanitizers? I know that Io Star looses its poop when its color fades away. Can I just pour it down the drain? Or wait until the color fades, or just never ever put it in my system period?

    Septic systems work on live bacteria. I was just wondering if iodine sanitizers in small amounts would compromise the needed working bacteria in my system.

    The amount you'd be using at home would be insignificant. The smallest tanks out there were 1000 gallons and you might pour 3 gallons of a diluted mixture down the drain every once and a while. No worries. ;)
