Digesta has been formulated using carefully selected microbial species that quickly and effectively digest fats, oils and greases.
Benefits to Keeping Your Drains and Waste Traps Clean
Fats, oils and grease can play havoc with the performance of your septic tank and are the biggest contributor to an unhealthy septic system, resulting in blockages and black slime build-ups. Digesta biological drain cleaner keeps kitchen, utility and bathroom waste traps free-flowing and blockage-free. When you regularly treat your drains with a biological drain cleaner you’ll benefit from:
1. Fewer and Less Frequent Pump-outs
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 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.
2. No Nasty Odours 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.
3. Free-Flowing, Blockage-Free Drains and Pipes
When FOG is deposited in drains and waste traps it is in a suspension in the wastewater. However, when they settle and cool, they return to a solid or less fluid state, clogging drains, making it harder for water to flow from your home to your septic tank. Over time the FOG can cause backups.
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.
4. No Black Slime Build-Ups
Slime normally occurs as build-up of fats, oils and grease and other organic material. It clings to pipes and waste traps catching more debris. Over time, FOG and particularly hair build-ups, body and other fats can create ‘fat balls’ that block your waste traps and drains, causing slow drainage from baths, sinks and basins. These slime build-ups are not necessarily harmful, but unpleasant to touch or look at and they do smell.
Unlike harsh drain cleaning chemicals that kill the good bacteria in your septic tank, Digesta biological 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 a healthy septic tank.
Digesta is a biological drain cleaner which uses microbial waste digestion technology that is 100% safe to 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! Digest biological 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.
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 (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 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.
DIGESTA – Perfect for Homes on Mains Too
Digesta is the miracle product everyone needs – not just those on septic systems. I don’t know why you don’t market the Digesta to ‘normal’ households. It saves a lot of cleaning sink traps.
No Regrets Since Using Muck Munchers
We have used Muck Munchers from the very beginning of having an upgraded sceptic tank. Let’s put it this way – it may be something that we would regret using if we stopped buying it! It seems to be doing what it should at the moment!!!
Over £1,000 Saved on Septic Pump-Outs
Muck Munchers is an excellent product, so simple and easy. Our yearly bill was £120 ten years ago! But we haven’t had to empty the tank since using MM and must have saved well over £1,000.
Sorted my Shower Waste and my Saniflo
Every time we flushed the Saniflo, waste came up in the shower in my daughter’s bathroom. Following your advice, I put a Muck Munchers sachet in the Saniflo and left it overnight, and used Digesta in the shower and wash basin each day. In a few days all was flowing freely. The plumber had quoted £600 + VAT for a new Saniflo, so it was £43 well spent with you.
Working Brilliantly in Bio Klargester
We have been big fans for about 5 years and still don’t need our Klargester pumping out yet!
Muck Munchers Improve Klargester Performance
We had our annual service and inspection of our Klargester bio filter this morning. The engineer said he’s never seen it in such good condition and significantly less sludge than in previous years – we now have another 6 months before the disludge rather than as in previous years when we would need to organise it immediately after the January service. He’s a man who loves his job – he even said it smelt much better than most units. I wasn’t tempted to verify this!!
Septic Friendly Cleaning Products
Great products, thank you. My kitchen floor keeps so much cleaner with Eco Floor, my sink, shower and wash basins smell ok with Digesta and Eco Toilet works well, as do the Muck Munchers sachets.
Great Product Great Value
So easy to use; so easy to store; works so well, there’s no point in looking for any other product. For a year’s supply, a very fair price.
