How can such a small amount of BIO-CLEAN
be effective in plumbing?
There are millions and millions of bacteria in each spoonful. Each one
will eat its weight of waste every 60 seconds. They double in number every
30 minutes, and as they multiply they will spread throughout the entire
Will it work on a clog?
If the material is biodegradable, yes. However, in most cases, the stoppage
is not caused by a blob of something in the trap. Most likely, it is several
feet of pipe that is filled with "gunk", and it may take several
days for the bacteria to eat through this long blockage. Therefore, it
is suggested that a mechanical cable be used to restore the flow. Then
begin BIO-CLEAN treatments to remove any remaining waste build-up.
Regular maintenance treatments will prevent new build-up.
How long will it take to see the results?
Some people notice improvement in a day or two. Almost everyone will
see results in one to three weeks. Note: The cleaning process is not completed
with the initial five day treatment. The time is determined by the type
of material the build-up is comprised of (grease, soap, hair) and the length
of the lines. Hair takes the longest to digest.
Should the toilet be flushed after
pouring BIO-CLEAN into the bowl?
Do not flush for 6-8 hours. The quart of mixture poured into the bowl
pushes one quart of water and mixture out of the bowl into the stack. The
enzymes and bacteria carried out in the quart leaving the bowl are deposited
on the gook coating the pipe. In the following 6-8 hours they embed themselves
in the gunk so that when the toilet is next flushed they will not be flushed
Aren't chemical drain openers much
stronger than BIO-CLEAN ?
The strongest chemical in the world can't climb the side walls of horizontal
pipes. Gravity makes all chemicals run along the bottom. Nor can chemicals
remove much waste in vertical pipes because they flow through so quickly.
The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are live and will go anywhere there is
food. They will remove the gunk chemicals leave behind.
Does BIO-CLEAN contain any acid, lye,
solvents, perfume or poisonous substances?
Will BIO-CLEAN attack tree roots?
Only roots that are completely dead. Roots enter sewer pipes seeking
the rich organic food supplied by the build-up. As roots feed on the waste
they grow, branch out and eventually restrict flow. Periodic use of enough
BIO-CLEAN and water to reach the root area will eliminate the waste
they seek. In this manner, the use of BIO-CLEAN discourages root
growth in sewers.
Can BIO-CLEAN really help a septic
Absolutely- in several ways. The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are specially
selected to digest a larger variety of waste, and metabolize it faster
than naturally occurring bacteria or yeast additives. Oils, fats, grease
and paper are very difficult for intestinal bacteria to handle. BIO-CLEAN
is very effective on these materials. It increases solids destruction,
so fewer pumpings are needed and that means money saved.
More complete digestion also means fewer undigested solids leaving the
tank. These solids would otherwise form a black gooey accumulation in the
leach field and prevent water absorption by the soil. Therefore, BIO-CLEAN
extends the life of a leach field.
Are any chemicals incompatible with
Yes. Chlorine, germicidal products, anti-septics, sanitizers, chemical
drain openers, paint, lye, acids, cationic surfactants and food preservatives.
And in general, anything that is inorganic (not biodegradable).
Does a garbage disposal and/or automatic
dishwasher affect a septic system?
Yes-in two ways. Disposals add greater loads. Without frequent BIO-CLEAN
treatments, faster accumulation of solids in the tank occurs. Most automatic
dishwashing compounds, either powder or gel, contain chlorine, which is
damaging to all biological activity. For the least overall problems, don't
use the disposal for material that could go into solid waste or be composted.
Use non-chlorinated, biodegradable dishwashing compound and treat regularly
with BIO-CLEAN. A complete list of recommended products is available
from your authorized BIO-CLEAN dealer.
Does BIO-CLEAN stop odors?
Yes, by digesting the waste which is the source of odor.
Does BIO-CLEAN digest hair?
Yes. However, it does take much longer than most any other organic material.
In drains, soap scum, skin oils, etc. bond hair to pipe surfaces. BIO-CLEAN
digests these other materials more quickly, which releases the hair to
How does BIO-CLEAN compare with liquid
BIO-CLEAN is more concentrated, more uniform, more stable (longer
shelf life) and more economical. Liquids depend upon preservatives to keep
the bacteria dormant while in the bottle. Most have a high percent of surfactant
to emulsify oils and fats, not digest them. Enzymes in solution interact
with each other, which results in shorter shelf life and/or a single enzyme
Does BIO-CLEAN stop odors coming from
a cat litter pan?
Definitely. Best results can be obtained by washing and drying pan and
then sprinkling the bottom with BIO-CLEAN before adding new litter
and coating the top with BIO-CLEAN.
What is the shelf life of BIO-CLEAN
Several years if kept dry at normal temperature.
Environmentally, does BIO-CLEAN help
BIO-CLEAN is a great help and in no way hurts the ecology. The
active ingredients in BIO-CLEAN are enzymes and bacteria which speed
up the natural digestion of organic material. This is the only process
that recycles organic waste back to plant food. BIO-CLEAN is not
harmful to pets or marine life. It is so safe a child can apply it. Becuase
its action is natural, it enhances nature's ability to cope with man's
