Bacteria Packets for Treatment of Wastewater 3484

Product Description

BAC PAKS are a dry, granular powder containing enzymes and spore-forming bacteria packaged in a convenient, easy-to-use, water-soluble bag. Simply toss the one-pound bag in water, and it completely dissolves in approximately five minutes releasing billions of bacteria and enzymes into the system. The high level of bacteria and enzyme activity will work to degrade and digest animal and vegetable oils and greases, proteins, starches and sugars. It also contains nutrients to simulate the growth of bacteria, fungi and protozoa already present in the system for additional results. In doing so, it will eliminate odors, reduce suspended solids and sludge volumes and reduce BOC and COD levels.
