Common Question about Bacti-Zyme®

Where do I add Bacti-Zyme® into drains and grease traps and how much?
Dry Bacti-Zyme® may be scooped directly into the drains, or may be activated by mixing them in some warm (NOT HOT) water for several minutes before adding. To treat grease traps, you can add Bacti-Zyme® directly to the trap through the clean-out opening, or flush them down the nearest grease traps. When treating multi-floor building, always begin by treating the lower floor first. This way, organic matter that breaks loose on the upper floors will not cause clogs as they travel down and out the building. For usage rates, simply follow the directions.

How long before I see the results?
Organic accumulation that closes and causes odors takes months and years to build-up, and it will take some time to get rid of it. Begin the treatment program with double dosage for the first one month. After this start-up period, you will begin to notice improving of flow and less odors, and you can cut back to the normal weekly dose.

If the bacteria grow and re-produce, why do I have to re-treat with more Bacti-Zyme® everyday or every week?
The bacteria in Bacti-Zyme® are very efficient at digesting waste, many times faster than naturally occurring bacteria. However, they are not as "strong" as the natural bacteria that may be present in the waste. If the treatment is stopped, the natural bacteria will eventually overpower and replace the good bacteria. Additionally, plumbing lines, grease traps and septic tanks are very harsh environments that do tend to inhibit these desirable bacteria. In order to keep a large bacteria population available at all times, we need to re-treat.

If the bacteria digest all the waste, will I ever have to pump out the grease trap again?
These bacteria can only digest organic matter. They can do nothing to sand, ash, shavings, dirt, cigarette butts, petroleum products, or other non-organic matter that gets into the system. Thus, there will always be some accumulation of undigested matter. Grease traps must still be pumps out occasionally, but with much less frequency than before.

How do drain openers, disinfectants and cleaners affect bacterial digestion?
Most detergents, soaps, and cleaners are partially or completely degradable, and will not harm the bacterial digestion process. However, caustic or acid drain openers, chlorine bleach and other disinfectants and sanitizers will kill or severely inhibit the bacteria. If these products are used heavily or frequently, increase your treatment rate to compensate. Re-treat 1 to 2 days after the use of any these harsh chemicals.
