BCG treatment and a septic tank

Hi all

My mom is starting BCG treatment tomorrow. I read through the pamplet and using bleach. Bleach is not good for our septic system and wondering what others have done. Alternatives? Less bleach? Im planning on asking the clinic staff tomorrow as well.

  1. hi. Firstly may I wish your mom well
    for tomorrow. Hope all goes ok for her. I don’t have any personal experience to share but I found this where others shared their experiences and tips. Definitely check with the staff too. Let us know how your mum gets on. Take care both of you. Laura, Moderator,

    1. @Larla77 - Wishing your mother success with her BCG treatments and hoping for minimal side effects. Keep up posted as to how thing are progressing. As for the bleach question, I would discuss this with the medical team also as I have read of other options being used also. As I did not have BCG I am unable to tell you what those are but hope that others will respond also with options. My best to you both. Linda Urbanski ( moderator, team member)
