Drain
Cleaner

NZ MPI: C64 approved

Blocked drains are a common and frustrating problem. The slow and steady build-up of fats, waste and other materials in your plumbing system can show very few early warning signs until your drain is overflowing. BioProtect™ Drain Cleaner is a highly effective, environmentally friendly drain cleaner designed to clear out these blockages without harming your plumbing system. Through a simple scheduled treatment program it can prevent further blockages and the associated foul odours.

BioProtect™ Drain Cleaner contains a unique combination of bacterium, lipid peptides and other bio-actives that combine to create a probiotic power punch ideal for drain treatments. This unique combination accelerates the performance of waste digestion. It also improves its tolerance to extreme environments, which is one of the major difficulties with typical waste digesting bacteria.

Keeps Drains Clear & Odour Free

Controls the Build-up of Fats, Oils & Grease

Reduces Total Suspended Solids & Organic Nutrients in Wastewater

Eco-Friendly, Non-Hazardous & Non-Corrosive

Breaks down and clears out blockages in drains

The naturally occurring microbes used in BioProtect™ Drain Cleaner were specifically chosen for their superior ability to break down fats, food, soap, grease, and other organic materials without causing damage to your plumbing, grease traps or septic tanks. With regular dosing, it will help avoid the daily build up of debris and help maintain a clear and unblocked plumbing system.

Quickly eliminates odour

Foul odour can sometimes warn of an impending blockage in your plumbing system. It can also stick around long after the blockage is removed. This is due to the remaining biofilms that line the surface of the pipes. One of the key properties of BioProtect™ Drain Cleaner is its ability to remove the existing biofilm and replace it with a pro-active biofilm.

Prevents the build-up of struvite

Struvite is the crystallisation of uric acid. When uric acid crystallises and becomes uric salt it impacts the flow rate and blocks pipes. Over time this requires expensive cleaning or the replacement of plumbing. BioProtect™ Drain Cleaner inhibits the crystallisation of uric acid, preventing the build-up that blocks and damages pipework.

Safe

Blended as an extremely safe, pourable liquid product, non-toxic and considered non-pathogenic. No Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required for application.

Small Fly Breeding Sites

Many fly breeding sites are in recessed areas and crevices that are difficult to treat with insecticides and bioremediation products. They can make their way down into drains and lay eggs on accumulations of fermenting, decaying food debris and other biofilm.

The key to small fly control is sanitation, odour control and elimination of larval food. The presence of adult small flies means that larvae are developing in some nearby fermenting material, in food handling establishments and other commercial settings.
