Septic systems are designed to utilize biological process to breakdown waste material, so obviously antibacterial products are not helpful to the system process.
The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension says, "That while single use has little to no effect, normal hand and dish washing with antibacterial agents can stunt the work of the septic bacteria. Excessive use of antibacterial products in the home can "cause significant and even total destruction of the bacteria population".
Avoid the use of antibacterial products whenever possible.
