Preventative maintenance and treatment is the best way to keep your septic or AWTS operating smoothly without odours or blockages and to reduce pump outs. We’ve been helping people live odour and blockage free for over 20 years.

Within your system there’s an optimal balance which allows the beneficial bacteria inside to thrive and efficiently break down waste. Inconsistent usage, harsh cleaning chemicals, pump outs, fluctuations in temperature and water levels all disrupt the ecosystem in your tank and contribute to poor performance.

Without the optimal conditions present, populations of beneficial bacteria begin to die off, your system starts to smell and if left unattended, blockages soon follow.

The simplest and most cost-effective solution is to boost your system’s beneficial bacteria with a biological stimulant based additive. EcoCare’s proven solutions contain micro and macro nutrients that allow your beneficial bacteria to rapidly multiply and restore your system to peak performance.

“I have been a customer for more than 20 years using EcoCare Activator and never had a problem with my septic system, no smell, no blocking just performing perfectly. I also use Activator for washing floors bathrooms stain removal etc. I highly recommend it to anyone that a septic system or just want a natural eco friendly cleaning system.”

“11years ago we were told that we would need to replace the septic at around $15-20,000 on our newly purchased property. Instead we took a chance on a product we’d seen advertised in a newspaper at the time. It is called EcoCare. It took about 6 months to get the septic system healthy again and now 11 years later we have still have not had to replace our septic system. Hard to believe myself. Great product and wonderful after purchase service if you have any questions.”

What makes our products different?

Most septic, AWTS or greywater treatment products use bacteria or enzymes to improve system performance. Whilst we do provide specialty bacteria, we know that the underlying cause of most wastewater issues are poor biological conditions within the system that kill the bacteria necessary for waste breakdown.

Our solution contains specialty bacteria as well as nutrients, minerals and amino acids that allow these bacteria to rapidly multiply.

EcoCare’s Biological Stimulant Technology introduces select nutrients, minerals and amino acids that improve 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.
