cleaning products if you have a septic tank?

Our new house has a septic tank. Does this restrict what kind of cleaning products I can use?

We have one of those.
You MUST avoid bleach in the toilets/waste water as it kills the good bacteria that live in the tank and break everything down.
I'm in France and over here there's a special toilet cleaner (with toilet duck style nozzle) which is compatible. I'm sure there must be something equivalent in the UK assuming that's where you are.
Also, I have been advised to 'feed' the good bacteria with this grey powder that you flush down the toilet.
Finally it is a really bad idea to flush tampons down the toilet.
