BioProtect™ Septic Treatment is an environmentally safe and user friendly biological treatment for the control of odour and breakdown of organic material. Powered by Bacillus subtilis, a natural, non-pathogenic and non-toxigenic bacterium that cleans or removes dirt, soil, dust, debris, and inanimate solids, including scum, nutrients, organic particles and contaminants.
BioProtect™ Septic Treatment contains a unique combination of bacterium, lipid peptides and other bio-actives that combine to create a probiotic power punch ideal for septic tanks. This unique combination increases the ability to accelerate the performance of digesting waste. It also improves its tolerance to extreme environments, which is one of the major difficulties with typical waste digesting bacteria.
Helps Prevent Septic Backups
Increases Bacterial Colonisation that Promotes Biodegradation
Safe for Toilets & Plumbing
Eco-Friendly, Non-Hazardous & Non-Corrosive
As a liquid, it penetrates hard to reach places coating the surface with a protective biofilm unique to Bacillus subtilis. For use in drains, sewers and septic tank systems to prevent blockages and odour caused by fats, oil, grease and organic wastes.
Bacillus subtilis is the bio-active that biodegrades substances found in septic tank systems. It prevents the build-up of fat, grease and oils, and rapidly breaks down organic matter.
Blended as an extremely safe, pourable liquid product, non-toxic and considered non-pathogenic. No Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required for application.
The following toxicology tests have been completed and are available on request.

Bacillus subtilis is considered a safe, benign organism. Both the American Society of Microbiology and US-FDA classify BioProtect™ Septic Treatment as a Generally Regarded As Safe: “GRAS” organism. This means it can be safely handled by employees and customers without concern for their health or the environment.
BioProtect™ Septic Treatment builds a bacterial colony in the septic tank that reduces odour and breaks down organic material, preventing backups and increasing efficiency.
Initial Week - Shock Treatment
Apply 100mL of Septic Treatment directly into drains and toilets every other day for the first week.
Ensure that every toilet or drain that feeds into the septic tank is treated in the initial week. This will clear any residual organic build-up in the system and ensure a strong microbial colony is established in the system.
Apply 100mL of Septic Treatment into a toilet or drain on a weekly basis.
Every 6 Months
Repeat the initial shock treatment.

Benefits & Comparison
How does BioProtect™ Septic Treatment compare to competing septic tank products?
Increases probiotic bacterial colonies in septic tanks
Kills probiotic bacteria that promote organic degradation
Increases bio-degradation and breakdown of solids
Emulsifies solids but does not break down
Helps eliminate and control foul odours
Can leave foul smells untouched, or just masks them
Safe for all plumbing systems: non-corrosive
Can harm and deteriorate pipes over time
Can contain toxic bleach or caustic soda
Grey water safe
Some are not suitable for use as grey water
Bleach and chlorine free
Can contain corrosive substances
Breaks down struvite and uric salts
Most have no effect on struvite build-up
Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the goal of the BioPreferred program is to increase the use of biobased products. Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products.
As we seek out greener products to lessen our everyday impact on the planet, USDA wants to make it easy to identify biobased products. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label assures that our product contains a verified amount of renewable biological ingredients. You can trust the label to mean what it says because our claims concerning the biobased content are certified and has been strictly monitored by USDA.
