    Default Bio-Clean, Bacteria Waste Eliminator, Bioclean



    BIO-CLEAN is... a blend of bacteria and enzymes. The bacteria are natural, not genetically-engineered. The enzyme concentration is the most powerful on the market. BioClean

    SAFE
    Bio-Clean is non-poisonous. It creates no heat, no fumes, no boiling. It does not attack live tissue nor inorganic materials, only organic wastes like grease, hair, food particles, paper, cotton & sewage. This makes BIO-CLEAN safe for people, plumbing and the environment. BIO-CLEAN changes the waste particles into water, carbon dioxide and mineral ash which run harmlessly out of your waste system. These elements are then available for plant life.

    EFFECTIVE
    Within an hour after pouring the bacteria into the drain, the bacteria begin to eat their way into the waste that has accumulated on the sides and top of the drain pipe. This is their natural food. They digest the waste and spread throughout your system, cleaning it completely.

    I cut this drain out of a kitchen sink line. The homeowner said that no grease had ever been poured down the drain.
    What the heck is this stuff?


    Here is the p-trap for the kitchen sink.
    It drained a lot better after fixing the grade to the drain, and snaking the line.
    Of course new parts underneath too.

    I sell the heck out of Bio Clean. I had a Deli that had me clean out their grease trap every six months, I usaly get about 5 gallons of muck out of it. I started Ritter on the Bio Clean. SInce they use a sanitizer I told him he needs to use it weekly instead of montly. After six months I was lucky to get a small coffee can of muck out of the grease trap and the pipes where spotless. He used to buy 3 cans off me a year, till the day he sold the busness. Now I see a rooter truck out there montly. I dropped the new owner a line telling him I can save him big bucks, all he needs to do is call me.

    So could we see a pipe like that cut in two parts? Put one in a tub of water, the other in a tub of bioclean?

    The city of Bellevue requires something like this for resturants that have grease. Think KFC.

    A lot of resturants with grease traps use it.
    On a home, it cleans the pipes right out.
    I ran a snake in one that had been treated for two weeks.
    The snake came out cleaner than I've ever seen one.
    The funny thing is, it cleans the tops of the pipes too.

    Hodes used to sell a drain degreaser. I had a sink line I rodded out with a K-50 with 5/8 cables and a straight auger. Line was open but real slow. Normaly I step up the augher to the next bigger size but this time there was a clean out on the end of a tee in the basement. I opened this clean out and saw where the cable punched a 5/8 hole through that real tough black hardend grease. So for grins and giggles I used this degreaser in the kithcen sink. It said to fill the sink half way with water, and add an once of the degreaser then let drain. Wait 5 minites then fill sink two more times and drain with just water. Did that and I was amazed when I filled that sink for the thrid time it was roaring down. I removed that clean out and it looked like brand new pipe. I called Buzz at Hodes to order a case. He informed me Hodes stopped carring it. Never could find the stuff again.

    I have used this product many times, and i have to say it works wonders. Before i used to use your traditional drain cleaners, and one time some of the fumes were so bad and lingered so long that it made my little girl sick. I started looking for an alternative from the smell, but found bio clean and looked at all of the advantages of it. The only drawback that i see is that it can be a good bit more expensive and can add up if you have a lot of drain cleaning that needs to be done.

    i have a question about bio- clean. what anti bacterial agents can't you use down the drain? do you mean ever again? i'm not sure if if i have to switch soaps/face wash? right now i use safeguard bar soap for hand washing and a foaming face wash for washing my face. i have been putting a tablespoon of bleach down the drain once a week to help dissolve soap scum build up but it doesn't do anything. white soap scum still gets on the sides of my pipes, however i notice that it's mainly just down the first 2-3 feet of pipe in my bathroom sink. (the straight part of the pvc pipe) once you get to the p-trap under the sink, there isn't anymore soap scum build up (or very little). does anyone know why i only get build up on the firs tstraight 2-3 feet of my pipe?? we took apart the pipe and the p- trap last week and cleaned it all out, now just 1 week later there is white soap scum build up again. the water is going down fine now, but in 2-3 weeks it will start to run slow again.

    please help! i've been dealing with this problem for YEARS! will bio-clean cause a clog initially? i thought maybe since my drain is running fine now, it won't cause a clog?? do i have to use it for 5 days in a row initially or can i just use it once initially and then once a month thereafter?

    sorry i'm so long winded!!

    MUCH THANKS TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP!

    Bleach would kill the bacteria in Bio-Clean. Pretty short lived though. The next dose of Bio-Clean would replace the cleaning action again.
    You have to use soaps, so no worries there. Bio-Clean does a nice job on the pipes.
    The farther you go from the lav drain, the more likely that the pipes are increasing in size. If you are near a toilet, you don't have far to go before it hits that 3" line.

    thanks! the toilet is only about 2 feet away from the sink. when i use bio-clean, since all i have right now is soap scum buildup on the sides of the pipes and no clog, could i just use the bio-clean once and let it sit for say 4-6 hours?

    after that, would i use it once a month then?

    also, if i use 2 tablespoons instead of just one tablespoon would it work faster/better then?

    I do a treatment every 30 days in my bathrooms with Zep’s product and think there is room for improvement, so I’m intrigued to try this. I was surprised to read on the website that Bio-clean claims to breakdown hair as well. What makes Bio-Clean better than the bacterial products sold at home improvement stores? The type of bacteria, concentration, etc?

    Could someone tell me what the dosage directions are for BioClean? Trying to get an idea how long 2 lb. would last.
