How does Eco-Zyme B+ work?
Microbes are natures way of cleaning up after us.
Eco-Zyme B+ contains natural microbes that have been selectively cultivated. They have been chosen for their ability to multiply quickly, produce enzymes and rapidly consume waste.
By carefully observing and isolating which microbes perform the best, Eco-Zyme has developed cultures that are aggressive digesters of septic tank waste.
For the Eco-Zyme microbes to digest waste, they first produce enzymes. These enzymes break down waste into an organic soup which the microbes can consume rapidly.
The microbes convert the organic waste into water, natural gases and a small amount of sludge-like matter (see right).
Unfortunately, we tend to wipe out the natural microbes in the system when we use acid, caustic, detergents, chlorine-based disinfectants and ammonia found in some household cleaning products.
Eco-Zyme B+ microbes are selectively adapted to better tolerate exposure to toxins in household cleaning products. Ordinary microbes can be incapacitated by the continual onslaught of modern chemicals.
The toxin tolerant strains of microbes contained in Eco-Zyme B+ have been selected for their ability to digest the detergents, grease, fat, proteins, paper and starch found in septic tanks.
However for optimum performance of your septic system harsh toxins should be avoided.
