The Septic Drainer Story – Septic Drain Field Repair
RCS II, Inc was established in 2004 as a result of stumbling upon a formulation to repair a failed septic drain field and septic system problems. It was a well-known fact that septic systems fail because of something called Hard Pan Soil, which is produced when sodium combines with clay soil.
After talking with Empire Sewer in Granville NY, local septic pumping company owner Chip Gauther told me he had an ideal candidate to check out our treatment product: a retired couple on a fixed income in North Granville, NY. We contacted the homeowner, Ted Vogel (see Ted on our testimonial’s page), and gave it a try. We began by adding some of the septic drain field repair formulation, but soon realized we needed to add more and – sure enough – we had success without months of waiting!
Once we tried the septic drain field repair on several other places, we knew we had something special. We named the product after the result: “Septic Drainer”, and then produced the first batch. We hired a local marketing firm, Pepe Productions of Glens Falls, NY to create a logo, marketing brochures and several videos.
A Family Operated Business
Our first in-house septic drain field repair treatment production runs were done by my sons using a 30 gallon mixing tank and a hand pump. My sons have been a part of this company from the start. Curtis, who will be eighteen this year and Andrew “AJ” Reynolds who turns sixteen this year have been working summers at RCS II, Inc. since they were eleven and thirteen. The company then went from to a 230 gallon mixing tank with a gravity fed, four value manual manifold filling system to an automatic air-operated two head filling machine, along with a 280 gallon mixing tank. Each summer my children produce enough product that we warehouse to sell throughout the coming year. Curtis and Andrew also work part time in the office taking and processing orders throughout the school year.

Understanding our product Septic Drainer only worked on the drain field issues of a septic system, I started to research the bacteria enzyme market. After looking at several hundred bacterial enzyme based products we came to understand there are virtually millions of different strains of bacteria produced today. The reason? Not all Bacteria can survive in the environment. As a result, we chose a different path. There is a compound that was discovered at the University of Hawaii called a bio-stimulant nutrient made from Noni Juice that actually stimulates the growth of natural occurring bacteria without the risk of not matching the Bacteria to the environment. This compound is very inexpensive compared to septic bacteria sold in stores. We call it our product Bio-Septic Boost. We started selling Bio-Septic Boost in 2011.
In 2012, we added a product called Septi-Marker, which marks the location of septic system structures. This product is lawn mower safe and blends in with the environment.
