Other Uses For Compost Zing

Compost-Heaps:

Sprinkle a light layer [about one handful per sq. metre] of Compost-Zing over each layer as you build your compost heap. Not only does the Compost-Zing help build a population of beneficial micro-organisms but it also improves the quality of the compost.

Placing a thin layer of Compost-Zing over each added layer of garden waste will also speed up the breakdown of the compost and reduce the need to turn the heap.

To improve the decomposition of your compost heap it is recommended that a cover be placed over the heap to maintain temperature.

Septic Tanks:

Use 1kg of Compost-Zing per 1000 litres tank volume every 6 month period by either flushing or placing directly into the septic holding tank. Ideally done when tanks are cleaned.
