Bleach and ammonia-based cleaners can be detrimental to the beneficial bacteria within a septic tank, leading to improper functioning and eventual system failure.
Utilize a natural, plant-based cleaner to keep your septic tank clean and healthy. Baking soda and vinegar are excellent choices as they don’t harm bacteria within the tank or drain field.
1. Biological Additives
Biological additives are used to accelerate the rate of waste breakdown by naturally occurring bacteria found in septic tanks, absorption tanks and grey water systems. They do this by adding beneficial bacteria and enzymes that aid in this natural process of waste breakdown.
These additives are promoted to help you avoid pumping your septic tank. You can usually find them in home improvement or building stores, hardware stores and supermarkets; they’re often advertised on TV and the Internet as well.
Unfortunately, many of these additives are unnecessary and could lead to long-term issues in your septic system. Some even kill off beneficial bacteria necessary for an efficient working septic tank!
To keep your septic tank healthy and clean, the ideal approach is to use a natural product that contains only necessary components – no chemicals, acids or solvents.
Our Bio Cleanser utilizes only organic, non-toxic and non-harmful products to keep your septic tank or wastewater treatment plant (WTP) working optimally. It contains aerobic microorganisms which are sporulated on a mineral carrier for maximum effectiveness and safety. This sporulation method ensures your systems remain optimally functioning.
Many homeowners worry that adding chemical additives to their septic tanks will destroy the beneficial bacteria present there, but this is simply not true.
Most of these additives are unnecessary and may lead to a variety of issues in your septic system, such as odours, blockages and low bacteria populations.
Furthermore, many of these products use hazardous organic solvents that leach into drain fields and groundwater. In some states, these solvents have been banned from use; their presence could create legal issues should groundwater become contaminated.
Maintaining your septic, AWTS or grey water system requires adding the correct bacteria and enzymes. Not only does this promote a natural bacterial ecosystem within your tank, it also ensures an effective drain field that safeguards groundwater quality.
2. Biological Enzymes
Our Bio Cleanser contains a blend of biological enzymes, such as japanese green tea, aloe vera extract and glycerine. These ingredients work to gently lift away dirt and excess sebum while replenishing skin moisture levels. Not only that but this formula also keeps your complexion clear and radiant!
Enzymes are proteins essential to life, acting as catalysts for chemical reactions that would take too long without them. Thanks to enzymes, many processes can be sped up up by more than a millionfold under certain temperature and pH conditions.
Enzymes are responsible for catalyzing over 4000 reactions within cells, making them essential to life itself. Without their assistance, our bodies would simply cease to function normally.
Enzymes in biology have distinct properties and are divided into six functional groups: hydrolases, oxidoreductases, lyses, transferases, ligases and isomerases. Oxidoreductases, for instance, catalyze the transformation of one type of molecule to another.
Lyses, on the other hand, break bonds and cleave or eliminate them to form new molecules. They are particularly useful in sugar production since they can cleave or eliminate double bonds to produce single ones.
They can transform molecules into new structures, such as amino acids and nucleotides. These building blocks are essential for tissues, organs and muscles.
Enzymes have an active site, which is a specific portion of the protein that has a particular shape and functional group for binding reactants. Only molecules that fit into this active site can catalyze a reaction. The active site can achieve this either through a “lock and key” model, in which the active site precisely fits its substrate, or an “induced-fit model,” in which the shape changes as the substrate interacts with it.
However, this model can present problems if the active site cannot adjust to accommodate all substrates. In such a situation, the enzyme’s structure may change, and it will no longer bind with its substrate, resulting in impaired activity.
Enzymes may become inactive due to changes in their environment, such as when exposed to heat or acidity. They also can become active if someone alters the enzyme from its natural state by adding or subtracting a substance called a non-competitive inhibitor.
3. pH Adjustment
Maintaining your septic tank’s cleanliness and health can be a daunting task, especially when dealing with such an absorbent surface as yours. That’s where our bio cleanser comes into play – formulated with only the finest ingredients to help keep your system clear and healthy, plus it’s septic-friendly too!
In addition to the main ingredient of a product, you can also opt for a pH adjustment that will enhance your cleaning experience. This is where the product’s magic happens.
Realistically, this can be a tedious task. But with the right products and some knowledge of water chemistry in your facility, you can monitor COC and water chemistry levels in real-time and adjust pH as necessary to prevent scale formation, corrosion or bacterial growth. Not only will this save time and money in the long run by cutting back on chemicals used for your septic tank but it will also keep it functioning optimally. In conclusion, using these tips and products combined with some patience will help get the job done and keep your septic system performing optimally.
The ABG Urekha Bio Cleanser helps eliminate odors, unclog drainage systems and clean your septic tank. It contains highly effective plant-based surfactants which allow your tank to be cleaned more safely without using harsh chemicals or toxins.
Maintain the health of your septic tank by adding beneficial bacteria. Our concentrated bacteria supplement can be used 1-2 times annually to replenish this population, reduce waste production, and guarantee your system works optimally at all times.
Our Bio Cleanser uses aeration combined with an effective microbial nutrient blend. This creates billions of beneficial bacteria that work together to break down waste, convert it into usable water and eliminate any unpleasant odors from the area. The aeration process is highly effective yet requires only minimal amounts of water for effective results.
Aeration can be used in septic tanks, ponds and lagoons to boost beneficial bacteria levels and decrease waste production. This is especially helpful if your septic system hasn’t been running for some time; it will restore it back to full potential.
Aeration in your septic system not only aids with waste removal, it also adds oxygen to the tank. This oxygen boost allows microbes to do their job much better. Furthermore, this process reduces biological oxygen demand (BOD), which is often responsible for odors and blockages within your system.
Aeration can also help prevent clogged drains by breaking up organic materials that accumulate on the inside of the surface. This includes food waste, animal and vegetable fats and oils, as well as undissolved soap residue. Aerating will make your septic system more effective at breaking down waste, preventing clogs and saving you from having to invest in costly sewage treatment.
