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...

The Bioremediation Waste Water Case Study in London

The Bioremediation of Waste Water – A Case Study in London This wastewater case study is a little more involved than most of the information we have. It involves the initial assessment of the use of F-TREAT in bioremediation of waste water. Specifically, the removal of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOGs) and other organic wastes from the sewer lines in London, England and prepared for the Thames Water Utilities, LTD.   The Piccadilly Line BioTreatment The bioremediation treatment on the Piccadilly Branch Sewer was the second such treatment by the Thames Water Utility using F-TREAT and was carried out as a result of successful tests achieved from a similar biotreatment on the sewer in the Parliament Street area. The bioremediation strategy was planned after careful evaluation of all of the site conditions Dose rates were calculated on the length of the sewer to be treated and the extent of accumulation of fats and other solids. The length of the sewer  to be bioremediated covered approximately one kilometer and is estimated to have contained about 250 tons of FOGs and other organic solids. Sewage flow through this section of sewer was stopped for 6 of the 7.5 weeks of the F-TREAT treatment, a small input from local residences was inevitable....

Fizzytabs Innovative Microbial Products

Fizzytabs – Innovative Microbial Products Fizzytabs, by Custom Biologicals, are innovative, microbial products. Custom manufactures a wide variety of fizzytabs for use in the home, in restaurants and food service industry, in wastewater treatment, and in agriculture. Patent Pending fizzytabs are effervescent tablets that dissolve quickly in water. Upon dissolving, fizzytabs release billions of specifically selected bacteria or fungi. These microorganisms have been selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade oil, improve plant roots, or improve septic tank performance depending on which microbial product they are in. Microbial Products that are Fizzytabs: Septic Fizzytabs – Monthly septic tank treatment – Here’s a link to a Septic Fizzytab sample.  Holding Tank Fizzytabs – for RV holding tanks Shock Treatment Fizzytabs – for Lift Stations Car Wash Odor Control Kit – contains shock treatment fizzytabs Pond Fizzytabs – for pond odor control Mop’n Treat – for restaurant drain line odor and grease control BiotaMax – soil probiotic. Grow bigger, healthier plants. Drain Line Fizzytabs – for drain line odor control Fizzytabs have a number of advantages over competitive microbial products. First, shipping costs are greatly reduced. Products that are one gallon or one quart are reduced to a small tablet – WHY SHIP WATER. Secondly, ease of use. For the...

What are Microbial Products?

 What are Microbial Products? There are a number of products on the market that claim to be microbial products. So what are microbial products and how to they work? In the simplest terms, microbial products are composed of beneficial bacteria that are used to naturally, break down a waste product, environmental contaminant, or other complex organic compound. Typically, microbial products are used to clean fats, oils, and grease (FOG), to clean oil spills (as in bioremediation) or in agriculture to help provide nutrients to plants. Microbial products are effective in soil, water, and groundwater applications.   List of Microbial Products by Custom Biologicals   Beneficial bacteria, like all bacteria, work by producing substrate specific enzymes. Bacteria have the ability in their genetic material, to produce a wide variety of enzymes such as lipases (break down fats) and proteases (breaks down proteins). Bacteria are so efficient at producing enzymes that they are sometimes thought of as enzyme factories. These enzymes quickly solubilize various organic waste products making the waste available to the bacteria as a food source. The end product if this digestion is primarily more bacteria, carbon dioxide and water. Microbial products have a wide variety of uses including: Bioremediation – cleaning of petroleum and oil spills Wastewater Treatment...
