RESTART L is a natural and organic treatment for septic tanks and other waste water systems to maintain and improve system function while eradicating problem odours.
The Importance of Maintaining your Septic Tank
The bacteria working in your waste system are vital to good septic tank function. However sometimes this is compromised when undesirable products such as incorrect cleaning products, bleaches, disinfectants and pharmaceuticals are added into the waste water system. These upset the eco system of the bacteria and can kill them completely. This becomes clear when odours increase.
The good news is that with a few simple habits your septic tank should operate smoothly and effectively for many years. One key part of good maintenance is to have your septic tank pumped out regularly. The frequency of pumping will depend on the tanks type and size as well as the amount of use it gets. Check the manufacturers guide for what they recommend or when you notice changes in its function it is probably time to call your local septic tank pumping company.
However, it is important to note that when you have your septic tank pumped you will lose a lot of the good bacteria in your system. This can upset the ecosystem, and this is where RESTART L can really help bring your tank back to life.
RESTART L is Perfect for:
- Septic Systems
- Domestic sewerage treatment plants
- Sludge tanks
- Grease traps
How to maintain your septic tank
RESTART L is also useful as part of your ongoing maintenance programme. Regularly add RESTART L (a beneficial microbial liquid) to your tank to assist in re-activating a ‘slow’ or ‘dead tank’.
You will know if your tank has become slow or dead because it will often admit odours in the system’s pipework.
A regular dosage of RESTART L has a powerful sterilising action and has shown to:
- Significantly reduce malodours and smells.
- Enhance breakdown of organic waste.
- Help suppress harmful organisms.
- Reduce the build-up of sludge.
- Help reduce surface crusting.
- Improve system function.
- Lower maintenance costs.
For problem odours and reduced system function.
Add 100=200mls per 1000l of tank volume. RESTART L is best added at a time when usage is minimal or if the tank will not be used for a minimum period of 4 hours.
This will allow RESTART L to activate the tank’s contents. Mr Bokashi recommends that you add RESTART L at the furthest entry point from your tanks (e.g. toilet or shower) to help maintain clear lines and pipes.
Repeat this act every 6 months or earlier if you have any issues.
Add 150-200mls Restart L per month to maintain good function.
Sludge tanks/ Grease traps
Add 100ml per 100 litres of tank volume via inspection caps. This is best done at periods of reduced or nil inflow to allow the product to settle into the tank’s contents.
