Bio-Clean

  • Bio-Clean is the natural way to clear blocked drains wherever they occur - kitchen sinks, showers and baths, floor drains, toilets and septic tanks, garbage disposals and grease traps. It’s specially formulated to remove unpleasant odours from blocked pipes and is suitable for both residential and commercial applications.
  • What it is
  • Bio-Clean is an environmentally-friendly drain cleaner.
  •  
  • It comes in powder form and comprises a blend of natural bacteria and enzymes that work together to digest dead organic waste such as grease, food particles and paper.
  • What it does
  • Bio-Clean dissolves in water to produce a powerful liquid cleanser. Within an hour after pouring the mixture into the blocked drain, the bacteria begin to eat their way into the biodegradable waste that has accumulated on the sides and top of the drain pipe.
  •  
  • It breaks down the waste, converting it into water, carbon dioxide and mineral ash which run harmlessly out of your sewer pipes.
  • How it works
  • Unlike chemical cleansers, Bio-Clean contains live bacteria that will migrate anywhere there is a food source. Even the strongest chemical in the world can't climb the side walls of horizontal sewer pipes − gravity makes all chemicals run along the bottom – but Bio-Clean can and will go anywhere there is food. The bacteria remove the gunk that chemicals leave behind.
  • Bio-Clean FAQs
  •  
  • Q. Is Bio-Clean safe to use?
  •  
  • A. Yes, it’s non-toxic and creates no heat or fumes as some chemical do. It doesn’t attack live tissue or inorganic materials, only organic wastes like grease, hair, food particles, paper, and sewage. Bio-Clean contains no acid, lye, solvents or perfume.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. Will it work on a blocked drain?
  •  
  • A. If the material causing the blockage is biodegradable, yes. However, more often than not, the blockage isn’t caused by a solitary blob of something – it’s more likely to be caused by a build up of gunk that may be up to a metre in length, and it may take several days for the bacteria to eat through this long blockage.
  •  
  • That’s why it’s often a good idea to clean the drain mechanically first to restore the flow, before starting a course of Bio-Clean.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. Does Bio-Clean break down hair?
  •  
  • A. Yes, hair is an organic material, so the bacteria in Bio-Clean can digest it. However, it will take much longer to break down than grease, food particles and paper, partly because soap scum often bonds the hair to the pipe surfaces. The good news is that once Bio-Clean has started breaking down the more easily digested material, any hair caught up in the pipes will be released to wash downstream.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. Does Bio-Clean stop odours?
  •  
  • A. Definitely. It stops odours by breaking down the source of the odour – the waste inside your pipes.
  •  
  • Bio-Clean is also a very effective when it comes to preventing odours emitted from cat litter trays. Best results can be obtained by washing and drying the tray and then sprinkling the bottom with Bio-clean before adding new litter.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. Is Bio-Clean an economical option?
  •  
  • A. Yes, it’s surprisingly economical. There are millions and millions of bacteria in each spoonful of Bio-Clean and each one will eat its weight in waste every 60 seconds. The bacteria double in number every 30 minutes, and as they multiply they will spread throughout your entire drain system.
  •  
  • You’ll get approximately 100 drain treatments from each 2 lb container. Plus you’ll save money as there’s no need to buy expensive chemical cleansers or deodorant blocks or sprays to mask the odours associated with blocked drains.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. Is Bio-Clean an eco-friendly option?
  •  
  • A. Yes, Bio-Clean is a 100% natural product which in no way damages the ecology. The active ingredients in Bio-Clean are enzymes and bacteria which speed up the natural digestion of organic material. It’s not harmful to your garden, pets or marine life. It’s so safe a child can apply it.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. How long will it take to see results?
  •  
  • A. The answer to this question is “that depends”. The time is determined by the type of material that’s causing the blocked pipe (grease, paper, hair) and the length of the blockage. In our experience, some people notice improvement in a day or two and almost everyone will see results within a three week timeframe.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. How does Bio-Clean compare with liquid biological products?
  •  
  • A. Bio-Clean is more concentrated, more economical and has a much longer shelf life than liquid products. It can be kept for several years if it remains dry and is stored at normal temperatures.
  •  
  • Liquid products, on the other hand, depend upon preservatives to keep the bacteria dormant while in the bottle.
  •  
  •  
  • Q. How does Bio-Clean differ from Vaporooter?
  •  
  • A. Vaporooter is a foam-based herbicide that attacks living roots. It penetrates the root cell walls and bursts them, causing the root to die and decay. Bio-Clean, on the other hand, will only attack roots that are already dead.
  •  
  • It’s still effective as a root inhibiter as it eliminates the food source (nutrient-rich grease, food particles and paper) that the roots seek, but you’ll often get faster and better results with Vaporooter if you have a blockage cause by roots in pipes.
