Digesta Drain Cleaner
Dual Action Enzyme Drain Cleaner

Eco Friendly Drain Cleaner
Biological Drain Cleaner
Digesta is an eco-friendly enzymatic drain cleaner suitable for both septic tank owners and households on main sewage systems who want free-flowing kitchen and bathroom drains while preventing black slime, foul smells, blockages and unpleasant overflows.
Digesta biological drain cleaner is 100% eco-friendly drain cleaner. It won’t kill the good bacteria required by septic tanks, yet WILL help to eliminate fat build-ups in drains connected to public sewer systems too.
The biological drain cleaner works in two ways:
1) Breaks down long-chain Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG)
2) Digests and eliminates smaller FOG molecules.

DIGESTA® ENZYMATIC DRAIN CLEANER – FOR SEPTIC TANK AND MAIN SEWER CONNECTION USERS.
Digesta enzymatic drain cleaner has been formulated using carefully selected microbes that quickly and effectively digest fats, oils and greases.
Why it is Important to Keep Your Drains Clean?
Fats, oils and grease (FOG) can play havoc with the performance of both septic tank systems and main sewers.
Untreated FOG’s flow-through kitchen and bathroom drains solidify and ultimately restrict the flow of wastewater through drainage pipes resulting in blockages with the potential to cause black slime build-up and backups in sinks basins, showers and baths.
For main sewers, fat mountains can build resulting in escapes causing environmental problems for our streets and rivers.
Digesta enzyme drain cleaner keeps kitchen, utility and bathroom drains free-flowing and blockage-free.
How Using Digesta Eco-Friendly Drain Cleaner Can Help
1. Free-Flowing, Blockage-Free Drains and Pipes
After FOG’s have been deposited in drains and waste traps they settle and cool to produce a solid or less fluid state. They clog drains making it harder for wastewater to flow from your home into both main drains and septic tanks. Over time FOGs can cause backups.
“So impressed with this product! Have always had a very smelly drain under our sink where we would have to put the plug in the sink when the washing machine was on. No hope of remedying this permanently until we can put a new kitchen in due to lack of space under the sink meaning the pipes have lots of joints and elbows to make them fit so they never drain properly. I’ve used this product twice and no longer have to remember to put the plug in when I put a wash on. I’ve used other enzyme sticks which you add weekly and they’ve never made a difference. Very pleased!” Paula Higgleton-Wood
2. Removes & Prevents Black Slime in Your Sinks and Drains
Black slime normally occurs when Fats, Oils and Grease and other organic material from hair, hand soaps, shaving foam, and toothpaste cling to pipes and waste traps gradually attracting more debris.
Over time, FOG and particular hair build-ups, body and other fats can create ‘fat balls’ that block waste traps and drains, causing slow drainage from sinks, basins, showers and baths. These slime build-ups are not necessarily harmful, but unpleasant to touch or look at and they do smell.
3. Fewer Pump-Outs for Septic Tank Owners
Septic tanks have 3 layers of effluent. At the bottom, you have what is known as “sludge” – solid waste from your home that has yet to break down. In the middle, you have a liquid which consists of wastewater and dissolved / partially dissolved solids. The top layer is commonly known as “scum” and this includes fats, oils and greases (FOG).
If the FOG is left to build up, your septic tank system is put under increased strain. Without a regular biological digester treatment, the FOG can build up, resulting in the need for more regular pump-outs, which are only a short-term solution, as over time the FOG, together with sludge, will build up again and again.
4. No Nasty Smells and Blocked Soakaways
Poorly maintained septic tanks give off foul smells from sulphurous gases and also blockages, leading to soakaway problems. Natural enzyme-producing bacteria break down the long-chain FOG molecules to reduce the hardening of solids in drainage pipes and septic tanks.
Enzyme drain cleaners, on their own are only a partial solution. The difference with Digesta is that the microbes produce enzymes and then, in addition, digest the resulting fatty acids.
“Delighted with this, we have had a drain smell in our bathroom for ages and I’ve been unable to get rid of it for more than a couple of days but now it’s been gone for over a month“. Lyn Hutchinson
Unlike harsh drain cleaning chemicals that kill the good bacteria in your septic tank, Digesta Eco drain cleaner has been formulated to work to actively promote the bacteria needed to maintain clean, free-flowing waste traps, drains and in turn assure healthy septic tanks and soakaways.
Digesta is biological drain cleaner that uses microbial waste digestion technology that is 100% safe for the environment and perfect for septic tank owners.
In addition, used in homes with mains sewer connections, Digesta is not only the first choice for ensuring cleaner, free-flowing drains, it also helps eliminate fat build-ups within public sewer systems too.
Digesta works in two distinct ways on fats, oils and grease (FOG) waste entering waste traps, drainage pipes and grease traps too. Digesta’s microbes release enzymes that assist in breaking down long-chain FOG molecules into smaller molecules, called fatty acids. The microbes then easily digest the smaller molecules to simply produce water and carbon dioxide.
The simple answer is No! Digesta biological waste trap and drain cleaner digests the FOG that surrounds hair strands and ‘fluff’. This enables hair strands and ‘fluff’ to flow more freely through the drainage pipes and into your septic tank or mains sewer.
The big difference is that with standard ‘Enzyme only’ products, they only divide larger molecules in FOG. As they do not digest the waste, all they do is help to ‘displace’ and ‘dump’ it elsewhere (within your pipes and drains), which potentially may create similar problems, down the line.
1. Dilute 10ml of Digesta eco-friendly drain cleaner (approx 2 teaspoons or small squirt) in about 200mls (approx 1 small cup) of barely lukewarm water.
NOTE – Hot water will destroy the microbes in Digesta – if hot water recently drained, flush 1-2 litres of cold water, prior to treatment.
2. Pour the diluted mix in to the sink / basin / bath / shower drain hole at night or when it will not be used for 8+ hours.
3. Repeat at 1 – 2 week intervals for free-flowing wastes and drains.
Slow-Running / Blocked Drains and Waste Traps
Repeat treatment daily until clear. Blocked drains may need clearing with a ‘plunger’ to allow water to flow.
