One area that has not been covered is the accumilation of soap
Soap is the #1 reason to have a septic tank pumped. I would
think that after a few years you will start having problems.
BUT then again with heavy rains it just might wash it deep enough
not to bother your generation

Another is chlorine.
 From a personal experimation to control damp-off with chlorine,
I found that 2 drops of chlorine in 8 oz of water, as a soak, would kill
plants. I did find that 1 drop per 1/2 gal, misted on the surface, when the

top of the soil was dry did kill damp-off without hurting plants.
 These amounts are a lot less than in a load of wash.
