Bio-Snake Block® Grease Trap and Drain Treatment
Take control of your grease traps: Drop a Bio-Snake Block in the bottom of your grease trap and notice immediate difference in the grease build-up and a 96% reduction in odor. Bio-Snake Blocks are significantly more effective than liquid products and are environmentally friendly.
Save time and money: Bio-Snake Blocks will reduce the number of scheduled pumpings and eliminate emergency service calls. They also reduce effluent BOD levels by up to 80%.
Environmentally Friendly: Bio-Snake Blocks are made environmentally friendly and comply with EPA and Health Department Standards.
Works harder: This special time-release formula lasts up to 30 days working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each block contains bacterial spores that digest grease and turns it into CO2 and H2O.
The Benefits of using Bio-Snake Block®
Bio-Snake’s specially selected bacteria spores will vegetate (go from a dormant to active) and degrade or digest the available organic waste when introduced into a water medium/grease trap containing organic waste. These microorganisms are capable of exponential growth – they can double in number ever twenty to thirty minutes. The byproducts of this bacteria activity are H20 and CO2.
By adding these strains of bacteria to organic waste, the following beneficial results can be achieved:
- Reduction of BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) up to 80%.
- Reduction of COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand).
- Reduction of SS (Suspended Solids).
- Foul odors and noxious gases are reduced up to 96%, by eliminating their source (organic waste).
- Save on labor and dumping fees.
Their bacterial concentrates are not genetically engineered or altered; they are naturally occurring—found in soil and water. They were carefully selected because they are:
- EPA & Health Department Compliant
- Environmentally friendly
- Safe and Stable
- Facultative reproduction every 30 minutes (capable of growth with or without oxygen).
Liquid Products vs. Bio-Snake Block®
|Hand poured or metered.||Pre-measured.|
|Pumps and fill lines to maintain.||No pumps required.|
|Stays on top layer of fluid/grease in the trap, washing out when water passes through the trap.||Sits on the bottom and dissolves slowly while building a biological film on the inside walls of the trap and pipes.|
|Usually made with “live” enzymes that have a shelf life.||Spores that have an unlimited shelf life.|
|Many liquid “de-greasers” liquefy the trap to move the grease downstream where it re-solidifies.||Digests grease and food in trap turning it into carbon dioxide and water.|
|Bleaches/sanitizers can wipe out entire dose of liquids. There is no more bacteria working until another dose is administrated..||More resistant to bleaches / sanitizers due to residence time in trap. Works 24 hours a day.|
|Lower biological counts.||Consistently higher biological counts than liquids.|
|Reduces grease in effluent.|
|Keeps pipes free-flowing to the main sewer.|
|Reduces plumbing expenses.|
Liquids are no thicker than water. People pay hundreds to thousands of dollars every year on degreasers that are poured or metered down the drains or into the traps. The de-greasers, being just like water, flow right through the trap. There is no substance to make it remain in the trap. Then sanitizers, bleaches, and other chemicals enter the drain lines and trap, attacking the biological workings. These are killed off and there are no more biologicals workings to go after the grease until more is poured in. Usually the following day.
Bio-Snake Block® the solid solution. These blocks reside in the trap – they are heavy and sit on the bottom. As they slowly dissolve, the biologicals move slowly from the bottom of the trap to the top, digesting the grease and food. By doing this the strong odors dissipate and the trap becomes more fluid.
Blocks are better – By residing in the trap, the blocks are able to build up what is called a biofilm inside the trap and on the inside trap walls. This is where the biologicals work on digesting the grease and food in the trap and work themselves to the sidewalls. So when chemicals and bleaches are washed down the drain, it may kill off some of our biologicals working in the middle of the trap, but would not totally wipe out this biofilm. Also, the blocks are in the trap and ready to release more grease-eating agents. Many liquids are emulsifiers – which means they liquefy the grease in the trap and move it downstream where it re-solidifies. This is why many areas are banning the use of “degreasers”. They merely move the grease directly to the waterways.
