What is Bio Clean?
How to use Bio Clean
Questions & Answers
In Nature all animal and
vegetable matter, from insects to mighty
oaks, is broken down and recycled into
plant food by enzymes and bacteria.
BIO-CLEAN uses this same principle to
biodegrade animal and vegetable waste in
Like all living things, bacteria must
eat to survive. Fortunately certain
types of bacteria will use for food the
grease, hair, soap film and all the
organic waste that tend to clog peoples
Enzymes act like short order cooks. They
prepare food for bacteria by breaking
large molecules down into a size the
bacteria can "swallow." Each enzyme
works on one specific type of molecule.
For example, the protease enzyme only
works on protein. Lipase works only on
The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are dormant
while in the jar. When mixed with water
they come to life in about 30 minutes.
In the meantime the enzymes are breaking
down the waste. They are very fast. In
fact, they work on contact. When the
bacteria revive they are hungry. Each
one eats its weight of waste every
minute - and they never sleep! As a
result of eating and growing they start
to multiply through cell division. Their
number will double every 30 minutes
under favorable conditions.
BIO-CLEAN should be mixed with warm (not
hot) water and applied when no water
will be drained for six to eight hours.
This allows some of the bacteria time to
embed themselves into the waste so they
won't be washed out when water is
drained again. Complete instructions are
inside each container.
Periodic maintenance treatments prevent
new organic waste build-up, so no more
slow drains or clogs!
Most septic systems in operation today
are not functioning well. The tanks need
pumping frequently because of solids
build up. All too often the fields stop
absorbing water prematurely. The number
one reason is the vast array of
household chemicals which either inhibit
or kill biological action. The coliform
bacteria normally present in sewage are
in no way equal to present day demands.
They are used to warm body temperatures
and are poor enzyme producers. They
cannot handle synthetic materials
present in detergents even under the
BIO-CLEAN contains not only potent
enzymes, but also contains bacteria that
outperform the coliform species in very
important ways. They are high producers
of enzymes and they are acclimated so
that they feed on a larger variety of
materials in the waste such as fats and
grease, vegetable oil, paper,
detergents, fabric softeners, aliphatic
and aromatic organic compounds as well
as synthetic organics.
Chemicals, bleaches, detergents, food
preservatives and bowl cleaners inhibit
or kill bacterial action within your
system. This lets solids accumulate in
the tank, some of which flow out and
clog the drain field. BIO-CLEAN will
restore the necessary bacterial action
and make your system work at full
People on a septic system must select
their cleaning products very carefully.

Odors come from waste that sticks to the
disposal wall and slowly molds and rots.
It is hurled there by the high speed
rotating blades. By following BIO-CLEAN
instructions this waste will be quickly
digested by the live cultures, thus
eliminating the odor.
Cleaning out a grease trap is the worst
of jobs in a food service operation.
After the horrible odorous muck is
removed it still has to be disposed of.
Unfortunately, we are running out of
landfills to put it in. BIO-CLEAN will
digest the grease, eliminating the
unwanted task, as well as the disposal
of the pollutant. Of course, the grease
trap must be large enough to accomplish
two things. The flow of the water
through the trap must be 1) slowed and
2) cooled, so that the oils and fats can
rise and be retained between the baffles
while the water continues on down the
sewer. Also, a garbage disposal should
never discharge into a grease trap. If
these criteria are met, daily treatment
of the pot sink will maintain the
digestive action. By eliminating the
need to pump the trap a significant cost
SUMPS WITH PUMPS
When ground water accumulates in sumps,
odors may be noticeable. This is
especially true if household or sanitary
waste is present. BIO-CLEAN eliminates
the odor by quickly digesting organic
material in the waste water. Pumps will
require less energy when the rotor,
housing and lines are free of build-up.
Lower energy costs and longer pump life
are added bonuses for using BIO-CLEAN.
OUTHOUSES AND VAULTS
Mention an outhouse and the first thing
that pops to mind is ODOR! BIO-CLEAN
turns the waste into water and carbon
dioxide very quickly. This dramatically
reduces odor and flies. Cleaning and
disposal of the pit become easier and it
is more pleasant for the user, too.
R.V. & BOAT HOLDING TANKS
As the waste water level increases in
the tank some scum adheres to the sides
and sensor. When the tank is drained,
more scum is deposited. With continued
use, this coating becomes odorous. It is
additional weight and reduces tank
capacity. There is no large access to
the tanks and the build-up is so great
that clean-up is difficult and time
consuming that replacing the tank is
often less expensive!
R.Ver's using chemicals in their tank
are also encountering the new problem of
not being able to dispose of their
chemically treated waste at many dump
stations. Waste water treatment plants
do not want this chemical toxicity in
their plants, so they charge dump
stations large fines.
If BIO-CLEAN is used from the beginning,
a tank will drain cleanly, including the
sensor, if there is one. Using BIO-CLEAN
in a tank previously treated with
chemicals will take larger doses and
some time to overcome the toxicity. It
will, however, remove the old build-up.
Waste from tanks treated with BIO-CLEAN
is accepted anywhere because it is
