Postpone Your Pump Out

Using the right treatment product will enhance your system’s performance, improve waste digestion, eliminate odours and reduce the frequency of your pump outs. 

How do our products help you pump out less? 

Improving the biological function of your system means that waste is being digested more efficiently, which means less sludge is being deposited into your septic tank. Less sludge being deposited means your tank fills up slower and you won’t need to pump out as frequently. Many of our long-term customers find that they may only need to pump out their tank every 10 years. Read their testimonials.

What makes our products different? 

Most septic, AWTS or greywater treatment products add bacteria or enzymes to make up for low bacteria populations. While we do provide specialty bacteria, we know that the underlying cause of most wastewater issues is poor biological conditions within the system that kill the bacteria necessary for waste breakdown.

EcoCare’s Biological Stimulant Technology introduces select nutrients, minerals and amino acids that improve the biological conditions, overcome the damage caused by everyday household chemicals and allow beneficial bacteria to maintain healthy populations. This is what allows septic systems to operate at peak performance and minimises the need for pump outs and expensive repairs.

How our products help after you’ve pumped out

When your septic tank is pumped out, the sludge is removed from the bottom of your tank. Whilst this will make more room in your tank, the sludge at the bottom is where the beneficial bacteria necessary for waste digestion live. Removing sludge with a pump out isn’t bad for your septic system, but what can happen is that too much of the beneficial bacteria are removed and this will impact your system’s ability to digest waste and function properly.

Inside your septic tank there’s a delicate ecosystem that needs to be in balance to function properly. The bacteria populations are consistent with the waste needed to be digested and are able to overcome any negative influences such as harsh cleaning chemicals. If after a pump out your system isn’t functioning as it did before, it’s because this ecosystem is no longer in balance.

After a pump out there will certainly be some bacteria left in the tank, but they may not be able to repopulate quickly enough to digest new waste. If they’re unable to digest waste efficiently your tank will fill up and you will be calling for the next pump out sooner than expected. This leads to an increasingly frequent cycle of pump outs and your system becomes expensive to maintain. This is something we see often and are regularly called upon to fix.

We have been using the product for over 15 years in our septic system and have had our system pumped out once in all that time and were told our system was the cleanest they had ever had to service.

Gerry Kelly

I love it, I clean everything with it. We have been using it for 11 years and only pumped out once, we where told it was so healthy.

Michelle Wright

We have two septic systems, both treated with EcoCare. Systems have remained trouble free and have not required to be pumped out since we started using the product 12 years ago.. An excellent product.

Bryant Ham

Provides the result that we hope for quickly and easily. No mess, no fuss, no smell, in fact the smell from our grease trap disappears. Our system has not been pumped out a decade or more.
