To ensure a person’s comfortable living in a country house, a sewage system is necessary. However, sewage means that the wastewater is somehow disposed of. The simplest solution is a sump facility and the use of special biological products. This method is cheap and works quite effectively. This article will talk about how to choose biological products for cesspools and what you should pay attention to at the same time.
Preparations, which are produced for the treatment of wastewater in septic tanks and cesspools, are colonies of living bacteria and contain some enzymes. Getting into a favorable environment for themselves, namely in the impurities, the bacteria begin to multiply and recycle wastewater. As a result of their vital activity, relatively clean water and various substances are obtained that are safe for the environment.
Such bioactivators have the following characteristics:
For bacteria, like for other living organisms, a certain environment is required for life. So the effectiveness of the use of biological products is highest when the temperature is in the range of +3 to + 40 degrees.
Microorganisms poorly tolerate the effects of chlorine-containing substances. Therefore, their entry into the sewer is extremely undesirable. As a result, the entire colony may die and additional funds will have to be spent on the purchase of new biologics.
the release form of biologics
produced Bacteria for cesspools are available in various forms. It can be tablets, powder or liquid. According to experts in wastewater treatment plants, the release form has a significant impact on the effect of biologics. Two forms are most common:
For small volumes, you can use biological products that are available in tablets. Such means are often used to clean pits and septic tanks in the dacha plots.
In tablets (as in powders) the bacteria are dormant. After entering the environment suitable for life, the microorganisms quickly begin to come to life and "get involved in the work." Before use, such preparations are placed in water (it is better to use rainwater, but it is also possible from under the tap, the main thing is that it does not contain chlorine), then it is kept for a certain time (according to the instructions for the preparation) and only after that is placed in a cesspool or septic tank
The pre-dry preparation is diluted in water
In addition, special cassettes can be found on the market They are available for certain types of autonomous septic tanks. Self-dissolving bags with anaerobic bacteria are used for industrial wastewater treatment. There are other, less common forms of release of funds for wastewater treatment and accumulated fecal masses.
If you decide to clean the sewage in the cesspool in the garden, you can choose any biological product. Everything will depend on financial opportunities and preferences. There are no special rules when choosing drugs. The most important thing is to strictly follow the instructions attached to the tool.
When using for the first time, you can use some recommendations from experts:
When choosing a drug, you should carefully read the information about its purpose. For example, liquid products are often used on an industrial scale. They can even be used to clean ponds. Such a powerful tool is not rational to purchase for the treatment of waste in small volumes.
There are also drugs that are aimed only at eliminating unpleasant odors. Such funds are not suitable for cesspools. For example, "Micropan" is used to remove unpleasant odor in places of accumulation of garbage. He will not cope with sewage treatment.
Before buying or starting to use a biological product (if you have reserved it for the future), pay attention to the recommended period of use. Microorganisms quite tenacious. But if the drug lay too long, then to begin their effective work will need to wait a long time. Fresh products begin to work immediately after entering the habitable environment.
