NO. Good housekeeping routines are still required. Use D86 tablet in addition to regular cleaning.
Since all restaurants are different in size, D86 tablet are recommended for the water volume of one mop bucket. Whatever surface area you can cover with that water volume, D86 tablet will treat it! Large kitchen areas, or large dining areas may require multiple tablets.
Starting with clean drains will optimize the performance of D86 tablet! If you have a problem that needs immediate attention, we recommend cleaning first.
D86 tablet will reduce the organic material that builds up in all the drains. The organic material is degrading and causing odors. You have to get the product to the problem areas! Evenly pour the mop water into all the drains, especially the problem drains.
D86 tablet are most effective when used on a daily basis. Secondary benefits will be significantly reduced if you do not use it daily!
Drain line maintenance, odor control, grease trap maintenance and surcharge reduction (BOD, FOG and SS reduction). D86 tablet contain bacteria that degrade the organic material, reducing the buildup in drains and grease traps.
YES – there are no magic formulas to eliminate pumping. Even if the bacteria completely remove the organic material, there remains inorganic material such as plastic sheets, straws, etc. and other material that takes a very long time to degrade, such as shrimp shells and whole vegetables.
If you would like to see the optimum results from the product, pump the grease trap as you start using the product. If you are on a schedule, reduce the schedule by 50% and view the trap when it is time to pump. Make a new schedule based on the results of the product.
Use CustomBio GT-Tabs in combination with D86 tablet. GT-Tabs are slow release tablets that continuously add bacteria directly into the grease trap.
Some water authorities charge to receive the sewage. If this is happening to you, it will be on your water or sewer bill. BOD, FOG and TSS are scientific components that allow testing.
BOD = Biochemical oxygen demand (measures oxygen uptake of waste) FOG = Fats, Oils and Grease (measures amount of FOG in the water) SS = Suspended solids (how much solids are being discharged in the water) The water authority might also measure for dissolved solids and/or total solids.
YES, and GT-Tabs will help even more. Monitor the results for yourself!
NO! D86 tablet are septic safe. Not only will D86 tablet not hurt a septic tank, the bacteria in D86 tablet are the same bacteria that are sold around the world in septic system treatment products. D86 tablet will help replace the bacteria in the septic system that are killed by harsh chemical cleaners and antimicrobial hand cleaners.
YES, the bacteria in D86 tablet will reduce organic matter such as cigarette odor, pet urine odor, rotten milk odor, etc. Place one tablet in a clean, empty spray bottle. Spray on the surface of the fabric or carpet until saturated (uniformly wet). We do not recommend pouring the mop water on fabric, but it is very acceptable to use the product directly.
Basically unlimited!!! The bacteria are in spore form and will remain inactive for YEARS in the packaging. Scientists have found live spores in the Egyptian pyramids that were about 4000 years old and still became active. If the tablet is intact within the packaging, the product is good!
Once the bacteria spores come in contact with water and nutrients, they start to become active. When they become active, they produce enzymes that trigger the other spores into activation. We call this a cascade effect.
Normal temperatures will not bacteria the bacteria in the tablet. We stored the tablets at 140° F for 24 hours and then froze the tablets at 30° F for 24 hours. These tablets still passed our rigorous quality control test!
Yes, the bacteria in D86 tablet will work together with any product on the market. In fact, the D86 tablets are stronger than most bacteria products for grease traps, when you compare a one-month supply!
If you have a low volume or mid-volume grease trap, the D86 tablet may be enough.
If the D86 tablet is stronger, why won’t it work the same on high volume or high problem grease traps?
The answer is distribution. The bacteria in D86 tablet are applied once per day at the end of the day. This is usually a very slow time of day in terms of water flow. The bacteria will grow in the drain lines and eventually make it to the grease trap.
You can use D86 tablet 1-2 extra times a day, dissolved and poured directly in the triple compartment sink. Or, you can order CustomBio GT-Tabs grease trap product!
The D86 tablet can open up many drain problems. Dissolve one tablet into a 1 quart (1 liter) container and pour directly into the problem drain. Do this once per day for 2-4 weeks. If the drain is outside the mop area, treat 1-2 times per week after it is open. If the drain is in the mop area, receiving daily dosages from the D86 tablet, then additional treatment may not be necessary.
YES, organic material can build up in toilet drains. However, there is also a high chance of non-degradable products causing the backup, such as feminine products.
D86 tablet work excellent in men’s urinals. They really degrade the odor and they prevent the buildup of minerals in the pipes.
Many drain problems are not grease or buildup related. There may be plumbing problems or something like a sponge that is closing the line. If it doesn’t work after a month, please call a plumber.
