Septic safe blocked and smelly drain solutions
If you’ve got a smelly, blocked or clogged up drain you’ve got two options to fix it:
- Call a plumber to come and fix it
- Use a drain cleaning product
If you don’t want to pay for a plumber to come and fix your issue, you can buy a drain cleaner and get rid of the smell or blockage yourself. Here’s how to choose the right type of drain cleaner.
If your home has its own septic, AWTS or greywater system, choosing the right type of drain cleaner is critical. Conventional chemical based drain cleaners will instantly cause costly damage to the biological balance within your system.
Avoid caustic chemical based drain cleaners
Most drain cleaning products you find on store shelves are made with caustic chemicals that are toxic and dangerous for your family and the environment. There are newer, readily biodegradable and environmentally responsible drain cleaners that are completely non-toxic and safe to use.
We’ve combined innovative biological technology with new readily biodegradable surfactants to create better drain cleaners that eliminate smells, unclog your drains and keep them flowing freely without being harmful to your family or the environment.

Blocked or Smelly Kitchen Drains
If your blocked or smelly drain is in the kitchen, it’s likely caused by congealed fat, oil and grease waste that’s clumped up in the drain and stuck to the sides. Use an environmentally responsible drain cleaner like Kitchen Clear that’s designed to break down fat, oil and grease waste in drains and trap odour causing molecules before they can escape.
Blocked or Smelly Bathroom, Shower or Laundry Drains
If your blocked or smelly drain is in your bathroom, shower, laundry or anywhere other than your kitchen the blockage is probably coming from a clump of hair, soap and dirt that’s lodged in your drain and not washing down. Use an environmentally responsible drain cleaner like EcoCare All Clear to dissolve the clog and trap odour causing molecules.
