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.
Blended as an extremely safe, pourable liquid product, non-toxic and considered non-pathogenic. No Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required for application.
A powerful probiotic bacterium, Bacillus subtilis is found around the world protecting all plant roots. It is environmentally friendly and necessary to life.
Biodegrading action //
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.
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.
Safe and easy to use
Clears blockages from drains
Increases septic system performance
Reduces pathogenic bacteria
Simple to use //
BioProtect® Septic Treatment builds a bacterial colony in the septic tank that reduces odour and breaks down organic material, preventing backups and increasing efficiency.
Dose the septic system on a quarterly (3 month) basis by pouring 1 litre of BioProtect® Septic Treatment directly into the toilet or sink.
For better results distribute the 1 litre dose evenly among all drains that feed into the septic system, toilets, basins, sinks, showers and baths.

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.
