Nothing will blow up but the danger comes when bleach is mixed with a cleaning product that contains ammonia. A very poisonous gas can be produced.

Bleach will kill the enzymes in the septic dump system. Do not use bleach in the black tank. It will not help in draining the tank.

No Bleach and Cleansers

Many years ago my mother was cleaning the bathroom and thought that mixing bleach and vanish cleanser would make the job easier. Not a good idea the combination released chlorine gas, and made her ill, ( thank God not dead ), so use caution when mixing bleach and other cleaners.
