Mega Bio

10 billion CFU/Gram

If your septic tank has been neglected or poorly maintained, organic solids may be in your drain field preventing soil drainage.

MEGA BIO has 10 billion CFU/Gram. It is an industrial-strength bacteria product designed to treat common wastewater organics, including animal and vegetable fat and oil and grease buildup in the drain field. This super-concentrated, high-end bio-enzymatic formulation produces a wide range of enzymes to naturally eliminate proteins, tissue paper, food waste and other common household waste that accumulates in the septic drain field and tank.

MEGA BIO performs synergistically because it contains two types of bacterial strains, Bacillus and Pseudomonas. These bacterial strains complement each other to provide all-around treatment performance by generating enzymatically active and targeted degradation. Specifically, these bacteria have exceptional targeted enzyme production of lipase, protease, amylase, cellulase, urease, pectinase, and chitinase, to speed the degradation and digestion of fats, carbohydrates, proteins, cellulose and starches.

Failure Of The Drainfield, Absorption Field, Leachfield

Many factors can contribute to drainfield failure. Structural problems such as clogged or broken pipes can lead to visible failures. Pipes can be broken or clogged by tree roots, by construction activities, or by cars driven over drainfields. However, a system need not be physically broken to fail. Septic solids remain in the septic tank and must be pumped on a regular schedule. If a tank is not pumped, sludge accumulation can cause solid organic materials to be transmitted to the drainfield where they can clog soil passages and cause over growth of the biomat. Additionally, grease and fats that form a floating layer in the septic tank can be emulsified by soaps and detergents. These tiny particles of fat and grease can then flow to the drainfield where, over time, they will clog soil pores. The drain field, also known as the leachfield, absorption bed, disposal field or seepage field performs the task of accepting and processing wastewater, or effluent, from the septic tank before it returns to natural aquifers below the earth's surface.

Microscopic image of typical bacteria

A typical drain field consists of several gravel-filled trenches with perforated drainpipe buried just below the surface of the gravel running the length of the trenches. The effluent is distributed, usually through a distribution box, to the various lateral drainpipes exiting through the perforations into the surrounding gravel bed. Secondary processing begins in these beds as the effluent fills the trench then seeps through the biomat and into the surrounding soil.

The bio mat is a naturally occurring tar-like substance that forms on the bottoms and sides of the drainfield trenches. It is made up of living anaerobic (without oxygen) organisms, which feed on organic matter in the wastewater. As the biomat matures it grows thicker slowing down the flow of wastewater to the surrounding soil. As the wastewater passes through the biomat pathogenic organisms and viruses are removed. On the outside of the trench, beyond the biomat where the soil is not saturated, are living colonies of aerobic (with oxygen) bacteria. These aerobic bacteria colonies feed on the biomat and keep it from becoming so thick that wastewater will no longer pass through.When soil floods these aerobic bacteria colonies will die off and no longer keep the biomat in check. The biomat will grow too thick and drainage will stop. Further, as these colonies die off they leave behind sulfides, which over time will clog soil passages stopping the flow of water.

If you are using Septic Seep for a shock treatment, wait at least 48 hours after application before applying Mega Bio. This allows the soil PH to stabilize before introducing the living bacteria mixture.

Mega-Bio contains only natural non-pathogenic ingredients. It contains no phosphates and it will not harm plastic or metal pipes. Directions: Mix 8 ounces of powdered bacteria formulation with 5 gallons of warm water, pour directly into the distribution box or an outlet leading from the septic tank to the drain field. Follow the application with enough clear water to flush the solution deeper into the field. Apply the bacteria solution within an hour of mixing with water. Most systems will show noticeable improvement within 2 weeks, but severely deteriorated systems may require a second application. It is important to apply the product directly to the distribution box or a tank outlet leading to the drain field. If you cannot find a way to introduce the bacteria mixture directly to the drain field it may be flushed down a toilet into the septic tank, but application of bacteria products to the septic tank is not the preferred way to treat the drain field.

Other Uses - Sink Drains, Floor Drains, Shower Drains & Garbage Disposals: Mix 1 scoop of Mega Bio dissolvable bacteria powder with 2 gallons of warm tap water. Stir well until the powder dissolves. Pour 2 cups of the Mega Bio solution down every sink, floor and shower drain, and garbage disposal. Repeat monthly or as needed to maintain odorless, free flowing drains.

It is the end users' responsibility to follow all local health codes and ordinances.

If you have shopped on the Internet for septic system solutions you are probably aware of the availability of a wide range of products and the claims made about how well they work. With prices varying from a few dollars per treatment to a few hundred dollars a treatment, it is obvious that the quality of these products must also vary widely. Less expensive products intended for frequent regular dosage can be of a low quality and can actually do more harm than good. Studies conducted on the university level have found that use of low strength bacteria additives may cause partial digestion of some solids in the septic tank allowing the undigested portion to migrate to the drain field where eventual soil problems are made more likely by the use of these inferior products.
