Question about Bacti-Zyme®
do I add Bacti-Zyme®
into drains and grease traps and how much?
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.
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
the bacteria grow and re-produce, why do I have to re-treat with
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.
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
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
