Why Aeration Alone Won’t Make My Lagoon Odor Go Way?

Why Aeration Alone Won’t Make My Lagoon Odor Go Way? Here’s the situation. You have just purchased, or recommended, the company purchase, an expensive aeration system to take care of your lagoon odor problems. After all, the salesman said it would work. He explained that aerobic bacteria don’t create those nasty H2S odors, anaerobic bacteria do. So by simply adding aeration, you’ll change the environment in the lagoon. And Presto – Rotten Egg Odor Gone. No more neighbors complaining about lagoon odor. So you spend the money, install the aeration system and turn it on. Unfortunately, the odor problem doesn’t go away. IT GETS WORSE! An Overwhelming stench of hydrogen sulfide fills the air and your nostrils. The installer says not to worry, it will get better over time. So what just happened? Why didn’t the lagoon odor go away with aeration? First, we’ll need to talk about the microenvironmental situation in  the lagoon. In a typical wastewater lagoon, the wastewater stratifies. In other words, some of the water floats and some sinks. Because of this, only the top layer of the wastewater lagoon receives oxygen. As a consequence, obligate anaerobes ( bacteria that cannot survive in the presence of oxygen) proliferate in the lagoon. Obligate anaerobes (bacteria that...

F-TREAT Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria

F-TREAT Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria F-TREAT Tabs are the easiest solution to wastewater treatment, package plant wastewater treatment, and lift station problems. No Measuring! No Mixing! No Pumps! Simply drop F-TREAT Tabs into the wastewater to help reduce FOGs (Fats, Oils, and Grease) and other organic constituents of wastewater. Helps reduce BOD, COD, wastewater odors, and more. F-TREAT Tabs contain a highly concentrated blend of naturally occurring, bioremediation bacteria that actually digest the grease, fats, and oils that accumulate in wastewater systems, lift stations, and piping. The bacteria in F-TREAT tabs have been specifically selected because of their safety and their enhanced ability to metabolize organic wastes efficiently and odor free.

Biological Wastewater Treatment

What is Biological Wastewater Treatment Biological Wastewater Treatment is the use of microorganisms, generally bacteria, to naturally degrade organic wastes found in wastewater.  The use of biological wastewater treatment results in BOD reduction, COD reduction, FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) reduction and wastewater odor control. Custom Biologicals manufactures F-TREAT which is our main biological wastewater treatment product. The bacteria in F-TREAT have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade and remove a wide variety of organic wastes. Custom Biologicals has over twenty years experience in the use of bacteria to degrade the organic chemicals found in municipal and industrial wastewater. F-TREAT has proven to be effective in degrading the organic wastes found in a number of wastewaters including: Municipal Wastewater Lift stations Industrial Wastewater Pulp and Paper Wastewater Food Processing Wastewater Petrochemical Wastewater Animal Waste Wastewater Shrimp Aquaculture Wastewater Custom also has the ability to customize a biological wastewater treatment specifically for your specific wastewater problem. We have addressed wastewater problems such as phosphate reduction, nitrogen reduction, bulking, foaming, and filamentous bacteria problems. Contact Custom Biologicals for more information about how to customize a wastewater solution. Custom wastewater solutions are not limited to large scale wastewater treatment plants. We have products for on-site wastewater treatment such as...

Using Fizzytabs to Reduce Lift Station Odors

Using Fizzytabs to Reduce Lift Station Odors Lift station odors are one of the most common complaints and one of the most common lift station problems. The lift station tends to accumulate fats, oils and grease in  the lift station and on the sides of the lift station. Now, Custom Biologicals has come up with a cost effective, environmentally safe, solution to the lift station odors problem – Shock Treatment Fizzytabs. Shock treatment fizzytabs are effective in treating lift station odors, particularly when the odors are cause by grease on the sides of the sewage lift station. Shock treatment fizzytabs are a unique, effervescent tablet that contain billions of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize the fats, oils, and grease (FOG)  that accumulate in sewage lift stations. Most lift station odors are caused by the decay of organic materials, specifically FOGs. This decay is the result of incomplete digestion of the organic material by the indigenous bacteria, both aerobic bacteria and anaerobic bacteria. In particular, these indigenous bacteria produce hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell). The bacteria in Shock Treatment Bacteria do not produce hydrogen sulfide. In fact, they digest the fats, oils, grease, and other organic material that cause lift...

Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines

Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines Use of F-TREAT The problem of grease and fat buildup (FOG’s) in municipal sewer lines creates a major monetary investment for its removal each year. Cleaning, therefore is carried out only in those sewer lines where blockage of flow is a major concern. Any new and economical method of alleviating the problem is of great value. F-TREAT, a bioremediation product, has demonstrated a potential to achieve the required results and can be used in the following situations. As a Complete Bioremediation Solution – Problematic sewer lines undergo an inoculation treatment to remove fat deposits such as those exemplified by the Parliament and Piccadilly Street Branch sewers.  As a pretreatment – Physical and mechanical fat removal methods can be made substantially easier by pretreatment of the sewer lines with F-TREAT. Trials have shown that F-TREAT can significantly alter the characteristics of FOG’s making it less sticky and more friable and aid in its removal by suction. As a Maintenance/Preventative Treatment – Physically, mechanically, or biologically cleaned sewers are susceptible to recurrent problems as soon as the fats start to buildup again. Maintenance dosing of a cleaned sewer will prevent FOG buildup by bringing about a continued solubilization of the fat before it can cause...
