In Nature all animal and vegetable matter, from insects to mighty oaks,
is broken down and recycled into plant food by enzymes and bacteria. BIO-CLEAN
uses this same principle to biodegrade animal and vegetable waste in pipes.
Like all living things, bacteria must eat to survive. Fortunately certain
types of bacteria will use for food the grease, hair, soap film and all
the organic waste that tend to clog peoples drains.
Enzymes act like short order cooks. They prepare food for bacteria by
breaking large molecules down into a size the bacteria can "swallow."
Each enzyme works on one specific type of molecule. For example, the protease
enzyme only works on protein. Lipase works only on fats.
The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are dormant while in the jar. When
mixed with water they come to life in about 30 minutes. In the meantime
the enzymes are breaking down the waste. They are very fast. In fact, they
work on contact. When the bacteria revive they are hungry. Each one eats
its weight of waste every minute - and they never sleep! As a result of
eating and growing they start to multiply through cell division. Their
number will double every 30 minutes under favorable conditions.
BIO-CLEAN should be mixed with warm (not hot) water and applied
when no water will be drained for six to eight hours. This allows some
of the bacteria time to embed themselves into the waste so they won't be
washed out when water is drained again. Complete instructions are inside
Periodic maintenance treatments prevent new organic waste build-up,
so no more slow drains or clogs!
Most septic systems in operation today are not functioning well. The
tanks need pumping frequently because of solids build up. All too often
the fields stop absorbing water prematurely. The number one reason is the
vast array of household chemicals which either inhibit or kill biological
action. The coliform bacteria normally present in sewage are in no way
equal to present day demands. They are used to warm body temperatures and
are poor enzyme producers. They cannot handle synthetic materials present
in detergents even under the best conditions.
BIO-CLEAN contains not only potent enzymes, but also contains
bacteria that outperform the coliform species in very important ways. They
are high producers of enzymes and they are acclimated so that they feed
on a larger variety of materials in the waste such as fats and grease,
vegetable oil, paper, detergents, fabric softeners, aliphatic and aromatic
organic compounds as well as synthetic organics.
Chemicals, bleaches, detergents, food preservatives and bowl cleaners
inhibit or kill bacterial action within your system. This lets solids accumulate
in the tank, some of which flow out and clog the drain field. BIO-CLEAN
will restore the necessary bacterial action and make your system work at

Odors come from waste that sticks to the disposal wall and slowly molds
and rots. It is hurled there by the high speed rotating blades. By following
BIO-CLEAN instructions this waste will be quickly digested by the live
cultures, thus eliminating the odor.
Cleaning out a grease trap is the worst of jobs in a food service operation.
After the horrible odorous muck is removed it still has to be disposed
of. Unfortunately, we are running out of landfills to put it in. BIO-CLEAN
will digest the grease, eliminating the unwanted task, as well as the disposal
of the pollutant. Of course, the grease trap must be large enough to accomplish
two things. The flow of the water through the trap must be 1) slowed and
2) cooled, so that the oils and fats can rise and be retained between the
baffles while the water continues on down the sewer. Also, a garbage disposal
should never discharge into a grease trap. If these criteria are met, daily
treatment of the pot sink will maintain the digestive action. By eliminating
the need to pump the trap a significant cost savings results.
SUMPS WITH PUMPS
When ground water accumulates in sumps, odors may be noticeable. This
is especially true if household or sanitary waste is present. BIO-CLEAN
eliminates the odor by quickly digesting organic material in the waste
water. Pumps will require less energy when the rotor, housing and lines
are free of build-up. Lower energy costs and longer pump life are added
bonuses for using BIO-CLEAN.
OUTHOUSES AND VAULTS
Mention an outhouse and the first thing that pops to mind is ODOR!
BIO-CLEAN turns the waste into water and carbon dioxide very quickly.
This dramatically reduces odor and flies. Cleaning and disposal of the
pit become easier and it is more pleasant for the user, too.
R.V. & BOAT HOLDING
As the waste water level increases in the tank some scum adheres to
the sides and sensor. When the tank is drained, more scum is deposited.
With continued use, this coating becomes odorous. It is additional weight
and reduces tank capacity. There is no large access to the tanks and the
build-up is so great that clean-up is difficult and time consuming that
replacing the tank is often less expensive!
R.Ver's using chemicals in their tank are also encountering the new
problem of not being able to dispose of their chemically treated waste
at many dump stations. Waste water treatment plants do not want this chemical
toxicity in their plants, so they charge dump stations large fines.
If BIO-CLEAN is used from the beginning, a tank will drain cleanly,
including the sensor, if there is one. Using BIO-CLEAN in a tank
previously treated with chemicals will take larger doses and some time
to overcome the toxicity. It will, however, remove the old build-up. Waste
from tanks treated with BIO-CLEAN is accepted anywhere because it
is biologically active.
