Application Instructions

INITIAL TREATMENT: It’s best to apply Bio-Clean when drains won’t be used for 6 to 8 hours (at bedtime for example). Apply Bio-Clean to each drain for 5 consecutive days to clean the drain and then use once per month as maintenance. Mixing Bio-Clean with warm water works best.
Note: If you have a hair clog, remove it prior to treatment with a drain snake. Bio-Clean can digest hair but it does so slowly and users can become impatient.

Dosage Rates: (scoop inside can is 1 tablespoon)

Sink / Bath Tub / Shower – 1 tablespoon of Bio-Clean mixed with 500ml water

Floor Drain – 3 Tablespoons of Bio-Clean mixed with 1.5L water

Garbage Disposal –  1 Tablespoon Bio-Clean mixed with 500ml water (while pouring into disposal turn on and quickly shut off so mixture gets thrown onto side walls where food particles accumulate)

Toilets – 2 Tablespoons Bio-Clean mixed with 1L water. Pour mixture into bowl. Then add 1L of warm water to the bowl to push some of the mixture through the trap and into the sewer line. Do not flush for several hours.

Slime in toilet reservoir? Add 1 tablespoon of Bio-Clean at bedtime.

Septic Tank – After pumping mix 2lbs of Bio-Clean with 20L of water. Add mixture directly to tank. If you cannot access the tank, flush down toilet closest to the tank.

For more detailed information and instructions see: Septic Fields And Bio-Clean

Septic Tank Maintenance dose – Flush 1/2 cup of Bio-Clean per month down toilet. (Use 1/4 cup if drains are being treated monthly)

Drainage Field – Mix 1lb of Bio-Clean with 10L of water. Apply directly to drain field through distribution box, vent pipes or clean out. If none of these options are accessible, mix 1lb of Bio-Clean with 20L of water, then apply to the indoor drain nearest the septic tank. Repeat the above dosage weekly until 3 – 6 cans have been used.

Biodegradable cleaners help your tank and field work better.

Sewage ejection pumps (sump pumps) – Open up the lid and make sure the water level will be able to accept 1.5 litres of water without activating the pump. Activate the pump if necessary to lower the water level before application. Ideally, once the Bio-Clean mixture is added, your tank will be just below the float line. If the tank is not directly accessible, flush a toilet connected to the pump until the pump activates.
Mix 3 scoops of Bio-Clean in 1.5 litres warm water (not hot) and apply directly into the tank or the nearest connected toilet if direct access is not available.
Let sit overnight and limit water usage so the pump doesn’t turn on.
Apply for 5-7 nights consecutively, then once per month for maintenance.

RV’s & Boats – After first use of toilet add 2 tablespoons of Bio-Clean. If odor is noticed between tank emptying, add 1 tablespoon.

Grey Water Tanks – After first use mix 2 tablespoons of Bio-Clean with 2L of water and pour into shower drain.

Cat Box Odors – With every litter change sprinkle a thin layer of Bio-Clean on the bottom of the pan, add kitty litter, then sprinkle a thin layer on top.

Outhouse – Mix ½ lb of Bio-Clean with 4L of water and pour on waste once per month.

Composting – Apply weekly. Mix 4 tablespoons with 2L water and let stand 15 minutes. Apply over compost. Turn over compost every two or three days.

Sewage Spill – Sprinkle a thin layer of Bio-Clean on top and keep moist until waste is gone. Large spills may require several cans.

Multi Story Buildings – In commercial buildings such as an apartment complex start by treating the drains on the lowest floor first. Complete the 5 day purge of all the drains on the lowest floor then move up to the next floor and start a 5 day purge on that floor. Keep moving up a floor after each 5 day purge until all the floors in the building have been treated. We do the treatments this way so if during the treatment process a chunk of waste breaks free from the sidewall of a pipe, it will fall down through pipes that have already been cleaned; making a back-up or blockage less likely to occur. If a blockage does occur, try plunging the drain to push the loose material through. This is rare but also a good sign that the organisms in Bio-Clean are working.

Never use other drain cleaners while using Bio-Clean.
