Every septic tank requires a large, active community of bacteria in order to function properly. If this community does not exist, or has become too small, shock treatment can help to establish, or re-establish, it and avoid expensive complications, such as smells and blockages.
Septic tanks are at their most vulnerable when they are empty, that is, when they have just been installed or have recently been pumped out. In these cases, it can take up to six weeks for an appropriate bacteria community to develop, by which point you may already be struggling to deal with a backlog of undigested waste. Our Shock Treatment Kit can establish a working population in just two weeks, greatly reducing the risk of your tank getting off to a 'bad start' and developing problems in the future.
When septic tanks begin to smell and attract flies, it's a sure sign that the bacteria community within the system is under pressure. Swift administration of our Shock Treatment Kit can nip the problem in the bud by helping to restore a large active microbe population within the treatment zone in just a few days, helping to return the tank to working order.
Our Shock Treatment Kit helps to establish the massive bacteria community your tank needs in order to function properly by combining fresh bacteria spores (BioBoost Tablets) with a special natural tonic (Sea Sure), which stimulates and supports the new microbes, giving them everything they need to multiply when they get in the tank. Follow the link for more about our synergistic septic tank treatment system.
Applied over the course of a week, the Shock Treatment Kit contains five litres of Sea Sure and twelve BioBoost Tablets. On the first day, the owner dissolves six of the tablets in half the Sea Sure and flushes the mixture into the septic tank via a connected toilet. One week later, the whole process is repeated.
We also offer a Complete Care Kit that bundles an initial shock treatment with a regular maintenance and aftercare programme for unbeatable ongoing protection against septic tank problems. See the column on the right side of this screen for more details.
