Organic Drain & Waste Management

Breakdown Liquid Treatment

WHAT IT IS

Breakdown is a bio-organic enzyme solution which is used to break down organic waste solids to an odourless liquified state. It prevents crusting in septic tanks and overall reduces the build-up of organic waste. It also drastically reduces foul odours.

WHERE TO USE IT

Septic tanks, long drops, pit latrines, portable toilets

HOW TO USE IT

To activate Breakdown, mix 300 ml with 5 L to 10 L of lukewarm (between 30°C and 40°C) water for each cubic metre of solid waste. Leave to stand for a minimum of 15 minutes before pouring through any convenient access point.

Remember to only use lukewarm water. Cold water reduces the efficiency of Breakdown and hot water destroys the enzymes. Do not use Breakdown in combination with disinfectants.

Bioflow Grease Attack

WHAT IT IS
Bioflow is an organic approach to tackling blocked kitchen drains and grease traps. It contains a blend of microbial species that together degrade and digest grease, short and long-chain fatty acids, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Its formulation will not damage pipes and traps.
WHERE TO USE IT

Kitchen drains, French drains, floor drains, grease & fat traps

HOW TO USE IT

To activate Bioflow, mix the dosage amount with 2 L to 4 L of lukewarm (between 30°C and 40°C). Leave to stand for a minimum of 15 minutes before pouring directly into the drain.

Remember to only use lukewarm water. Cold water reduces the efficiency of Bioflow and hot water destroys the enzymes. Do not use Breakdown in combination with disinfectants.
