Turtle Tanks

Introducing Turtle Tanks

Traditional Concrete Septic Tanks have typically been manufactured, sold, and delivered by precast companies. There are a lot of reasons why this has been the case.

"Old School"

Traditional Square Septic Tanks are manufactured with very expensive molds, heavy duty equipment, and expensive labour to make a marketable product.

Traditional Square Septic Tanks do not have a high enough profit margin to allow a "middleman" to act as a distributor and receive a reasonable profit.

Traditional Square Septic Tanks are heavier than a standard crane truck can handle safely.

"New School"

Since Turtle Tanks are cast with economical molds, weigh half as much as traditional tanks, produced for a fraction of the price by contract labour, and can be efficiently stacked in your storage yard; they are well suited for distribution by a Building Supply Store.

There is a wide variety of products and accessories to be supplied with a septic system. This presents a new profit opportunity for your store!

Bio-Clean

Chemicals, bleaches, detergents, food preservatives and bowl cleaners inhibit or kill bacterial action within your system. This lets solids accumulate in the tank, some of which flow out and clog the drain field. BIO-CLEAN will restore the necessary bacterial action and make your system work at full efficiency! 

• People on a septic system must select their cleaning products carefully. 

GARBAGE DISPOSALS
Odors come from waste that sticks to the disposal wall and slowly molds and rots. It is hurled there by the high speed rotating blades. By following BIO-CLEAN instructions, this waste will be quickly digested by the live cultures, thus eliminating the odor. 

GREASE TRAPS
Cleaning out a grease trap is the worst of jobs in a food service operation. After the horrible odorous muck is removed it still has to be disposed of. Unfortunately, we are running out of landfills to put it in. BIO-CLEAN will digest the grease, eliminating the unwanted task, as well as the disposal of the pollutant. Of course, the grease trap must be large enough to accomplish two things. The flow of the water through the trap must be 1) slowed and 2) cooled, so that the oils and fats can rise and be retained between the baffles while the water continues on down the sewer. Also, a garbage disposal should never discharge into a grease trap. If these criteria are met, daily treatment of the pot sink will maintain the digestive action. By eliminating the need to pump the trap, a significant cost savings results. 

SUMPS WITH PUMPS
When ground water accumulates in sumps, odors may be noticeable. This is especially true if household or sanitary waste is present. BIO-CLEAN eliminates the odor by quickly digesting organic material in the waste water. Pumps will require less energy when the rotor, housing and lines are free of build up. Lower energy costs and longer pump life are added bonuses for using BIO-CLEAN. 

OUTHOUSES AND VAULTS
Mention an outhouse and the first thing that pops to mind is ODOR. BIO-CLEAN turns the waste into water and carbon dioxide very quickly. This dramatically reduces odor and flies. Cleaning and disposal of the pit become easier and it is more pleasant for the user, too. 

R.V. & BOAT HOLDING TANKS
As the waste water level increases in the tank, scum will adhere to the sides and sensor. When the tank is drained, more scum is deposited. With continued use, this coating becomes odorous. It also adds weight and reduces tank capacity. Since there is no large access to the tanks, the build-up can become so great that clean-up will be more difficult and time consuming. Replacing the tank is often less expensive. 
Bio-Clean is a blend of bacteria and enzymes. The bacteria are natural, not genetically-engineered. The enzyme concentration is the most powerful on the market. 

EFFECTIVE
Within an hour after pouring BIO-CLEAN into the drain, the bacteria begin to eat their way into the waste that has accumulated on the sides and top of the drain pipe. This is their natural food. They digest the waste and spread throughout your plumbing system, cleaning it completely. 

HOW TO USE BIO-CLEAN
In Nature, all animal and vegetable matter, from insects to mighty oaks, are broken down and recycled into plant food by enzymes and bacteria. BIO-CLEAN uses this same principle to biodegrade animal and vegetable waste in pipes. 

Like all living things, bacteria must eat to survive. Fortunately, BIO-CLEAN bacteria will use for food, the grease, hair, soap scum and all the organic waste that tend to clog your drains. 

Enzymes act like short order cooks. They prepare food for bacteria by breaking large molecules down into a size the bacteria can "swallow." Each enzyme works on one specific type of molecule. For example, the protease enzyme only works on protein. Lipase works only on fats. 

The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are dormant while in the jar. When mixed with water they come to life in about 30 minutes. In the meantime the enzymes are breaking down the waste. They are very fast. In fact, they work on contact. When the bacteria revive, they are hungry. Each one eats its weight of waste every minute - and they never sleep. As a result of eating and growing, they start to multiply through cell division. Their number will double every 30 minutes under favorable conditions. 

BIO-CLEAN should be mixed with warm (not hot) water and applied when no water will be drained for six to eight hours. This allows some of the bacteria time to embed themselves into the waste so they will not be washed out when water is draining again. Complete instructions are inside each container. 

Periodic maintenance treatments prevent new organic waste build-up, so no more slow drains or clogs! 

SEPTICS
Most septic systems in operation today are not functioning well. The tanks need pumping frequently because of solids build up. All to often the fields stop absorbing water prematurely. The number one reason is the vast array of household chemicals which either inhibit or kill biological action. The coliform bacteria normally present in sewage are in no way equal to present day demands. They are used to warm body temperatures and are poor enzyme producers. They cannot handle synthetic materials present in detergents even under the best conditions. 

BIO-CLEAN contains not only potent enzymes, but also contains bacteria that outperform the coliform species in very important ways. They are high producers of enzymes, and they are acclimated so they feed on a larger variety of materials in the waste, such as fats and grease, vegetable oil, paper, detergents, fabric softeners, aliphatic and aromatic organic compounds as well as synthetic organics. 
  1. Q

    How can such a small amount of BIO-CLEAN be effective in plumbing?

    A

    There are millions and millions of bacteria in each spoonful. Each one will eat its weight of waste every 60 seconds. They double in number every 30 minutes, and as they multiply, they will spread throughout the entire drain system.
  2. Q

    Will it work on a clog?

    A

    Yes, However, in most cases, the stoppage is not caused by a blob of something in the trap. Most likely, it is several feet of pipe that is filled up with "gunk", and it may take several days for the bacteria to eat through the blockage. Therefore, it is suggested that a mechanical cable be used to restore the flow. Then begin BIO-CLEAN treatments to remove any remaining waste build-up. Regular maintenance treatments will prevent new build-up.
  3. Q

    How long will it take to see the results?

    A

    Some people notice improvement in a day or two. Almost everyone will see results in one to three weeks. Note: The cleaning process is not completed with the initial five day treatment. The time is determined by the type of material the build-up is comprised of (grease, soap, hair, and the length of the lines). Hair takes the longest to digest.
  4. Q

    Should the toilet be flushed after pouring BIO-CLEAN into the bowl?

    A

    Do not flush for 6-8 hours. It is best to apply treatment before going to bed or when you leave for work. The quart of mixture poured into the bowl pushes one quart of water and mixture out of the bowl into the stack. The enzymes and bacteria carried out in the quart leaving the bowl are deposited on the gunk coating the pipe. In the following 6-8 hours, they embed themselves in the gunk so that when the toilet is next flushed, they will not be flushed out.
  5. Q

    Aren't chemical drain openers much stronger than BIO-CLEAN?

    A

    The strongest chemical in the world can not climb the side walls of horizontal pipes. Gravity makes all chemicals run along the bottom. Nor can chemicals remove much waste in vertical pipes because they flow so quickly. The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are live and will go anywhere there is food. They will remove the gunk chemicals leave behind.
  6. Q

    Does BIO-CLEAN contain any acid, lye, solvents, perfume or poisionous substances?

    A

    NO.
  7. Q

    Will BIO-CLEAN attack tree roots?

    A

    Only roots that are completely dead. Roots enter sewer pipes seeking the rich organic food supplied by the build-up. As roots feed on the waste they grow, branch out and eventually restrict flow. Periodic use of enough BIO-CLEAN and water to reach the root area will eliminate the waste they seek. In this manner, the use of BIO-CLEAN discourages root growth in sewers.
  8. Q

    Can BIO-CLEAN really help a septic system?

    A

    Absolutely - in several ways. The bacteria in BIO-CLEAN are specially selected to digest a larger variety of waste, and metabolize it faster than naturally occuring bacteria or yeast additives. Oils, fats, grease and paper are very difficult for intestinal bacteria to handle. BIO-CLEAN is very effective on these materials. It increases solids destruction, so fewer pumpings are needed and that means money saved.
  9. Q

    Are any chemicals incompatible with septic systems?

    A

    Yes, chlorine, germicidal products, anti-septics, sanitizers, chemical drain openers, paint, lye, acids, cationic surfactants and food preservatives. Also, in general, anything that is inorganic (not biodegradable).
  10. Q

    Does a garbage disposal and/or automatic dishwasher affect a septic system?

    A

    Yes - in two ways. Disposals add greater loads. Without frequent BIO-CLEAN treatments, faster accumulation of solids in the tank occurs. Most automatic dishwashing compounds, either powder or gel, contain chlorine, which is damaging to all biological activity. For the least overall problems, do not use the disposal for material that could go into solid waste or be composted. Use non-chlorinated, biodegradable dishwashing compound and treat regularly with BIO-CLEAN.
  11. Q

    Does BIO-CLEAN stop odors?

    A

    Yes, by digesting the waste which is the source of odor.
  12. Q

    Does BIO-CLEAN digest hair?

    A

    Yes. However, it takes much longer than most any other organic material. In drains, soap scum, skin oils, etc. bond hair to pipe surfaces. BIO-CLEAN digests these other materials more quickly, which releases the hair to wash downstream.
  13. Q

    How does BIO-CLEAN compare with liquid biological products?

    A

    BIO-CLEAN is more concentrated, more uniform, more stable (longer shelf life) and more economical. Liquids depend upon preservatives to keep the bacteria dormant while in the bottle. Most have a high percent of surfactant to emulsify oils and fats, not digest them. Enzymes in solution interact with each other, which results in shorter shelf life and/or a single enzyme product.
  14. Q

    Does BIO-CLEAN stop odors coming from a cat litter pan?

    A

    Definitely. Best results can be obtained by washing and drying the pan and then sprinkling the bottom with BIO-CLEAN. Then add new litter and sprinkle the top with BIO-CLEAN.
  15. Q

    What is the shelf life of BIO-CLEAN?

    A

    Several years if kept dry at normal temperature.
  16. Q

    Environmentally, does BIO-CLEAN help or hurt?

    A

    DescriptionBIO-CLEAN is a great help and in no way hurts the ecology. The active ingredients in BIO-CLEAN are enzymes and bacteria which speed up the natural digestion of organic material. This is the only process that recycles organic waste back to plant life. BIO-CLEAN is not harmful to pets or marine life. It is so safe a child can apply it. Because its action is natural, it enhances nature's ability to cope with man's pollution.
