Activator – Commercial
Total Wastewater Treatment Solution
Non-Toxic Industrial Strength
Complete solution for the interrelated issues of waste management, odour control and cleaning. Formulated for on-site systems, trenches, drains, sewers and effluent ponds. Choose between our Natural or a refreshing Citrus Fresh fragrance.
EcoCare Activator is a scientifically developed blend of natural ingredients, grease dispersants and biological stimulants that kills odours on contact, cuts through grime, breaks down fat and grease, and restores and maintains a healthy bacterial balance in your septic system. Unlike most additives, EcoCare Activator doesn't contain any bacteria or enzymes. Instead, it provides micro and macro nutrients that promote the growth of healthy bacteria that produce the enzymes needed for waste breakdown. Creating the best conditions for these processes to take place provides a longer-term benefit than just adding bacteria or enzymes.
People use EcoCare Activator for wastewater management, odour control and cleaning because:
- Restores system efficiency and prevents future problems
- Destroys odours at the source and prevents them from returning
- Dissolves blockages
- Reduces BOD and suspended solids
- Reduces system maintenance requirements
- Compensates for use of harsh chemicals and sanitizers
- Cleaning capabilities enhance not hinder performance of waste systems
- Non toxic and biodegradable
- Creates a safe, healthy environment
- Australian made
Odours will be eliminated in as little as 3 days.
Most blockages will be removed in as little as 1 week, more severe blockages may take longer depending on the variables affecting your system.
EcoCare Activator is used in all types of commercial wastewater systems including septic tanks, grease traps, grey water systems and aerated water treatment systems (AWTS).
Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and mouth. If irritation occurs, rinse with plenty of water for several minutes. If SWALLOWED: drink plenty of water to dilute. Seek medical advice if feeling unwell or if irritation persists. Wash any contaminated clothing before reusing.
For best results avoid harsh chemical cleaners and caustic agents, and maintain drains and wastewater system condition by using Ecocare Activator as a cleaner.
On-site system/Absorption Trench
Add an initial prime of 4 litres of Activator per tank via toilets and drains leading into the system. For systems with multiple tanks or tanks larger than 6,000L consult your supplier for application rates.
Continue with a maintenance program of 1 litre of Activator per 50 users per week (no less than 750mL weekly).
A minimum period of 3-4 months is required to restore absorption trenches.
Add 250mL of Activator mixed with 250mL of water to malodorous or blocked drains daily until cleared. For best results apply to drain and leave overnight.
Dilute 50mL Activator per 1L water (1:10) to neutralise odour from dry waste or compost heaps.
Spray affected area liberally as required.
For initial conditioning of ponds in poor condition consult your supplier. A healthy pond requires 1L of Activator per 20,000L of incoming waste. If pH fluctuates outside range of pH 6.5 to pH 8.5 consult your supplier.
Spray Landfill sites daily with 1 litre of Activator per 1,000 m3
Dilute 200mL Activator per 1 litre water (1:5) for general cleaning of hard surfaces including ablutions, urinals, toilets, showers, sinks, benches, tiles, walls and floors. Spray on to the surface and rinse off after up to 30 minutes. For high pressure cleaning dilute up to 1:100.
For commercial applications EcoCare Activator is available in 5L, 10L, 20L, 200L, and 1000L sizes.
The amount needed to solve your septic issue varies according to the number of users and the underlying cause of your problem. As septic systems vary greatly in their design, it’s best if we have a quick phone consultation to make sure you get the best solution.
Keep container lid closed when not in use. Store in a cool area below 30˚C. Do not store in direct sunlight.
Commercial Customer Reviews
I have been using EcoCare’s products – since 1997 – which was when our Caravan Park opened and I am very happy with the results…I am very conscious of wanting to use an environmentally friendly product and it has been worth re-educating our cleaning staff so that our envirocycle runs well and the surrounding environment and staff are safe… I have been very grateful to the staff at EcoCare for their service. They have provided literature to us to help educate our cleaning staff and given advice when problems have occurred…
We use EcoCare’s products here at our outdoor education campus…it was important for us to use products that would have minimal impact on the environment..The children mainly use EcoCare Activator with the spray bottles you provided us to clean their cabins and have found that the product cleans efficiently. More importantly, we are rest assured with the knowledge it is easy and safe for them to use. We have been using your product for 14 years now and have been very satisfied with it…
We are an award-winning café-restaurant, between Townsville and Ingham, and we are on a septic system. We used to have problems with blockages and we had to get it pumped out about six times a year! Now that we use EcoCare Activator we only get it pumped out once a year… During tourist season, we can have many as up to 300 people using the toilets in one day, so it was embarrassing when the tanks were full and we had a lot of people… We pour EcoCare Activator down the toilets and the kitchen sink, after all the dishes are done and we’ve cleaned up the premises.. Now, we never get problems anymore… Using your product has saved us the inconvenience and costs of fixing blocked drains and pump outs…
We sell EcoCare Australia’s products to end users, such as Nursing Homes, who use it mainly for cleaning…We trialled the product against the competition and were amazed by the results… It is brilliant for cleaning – on the showers it is great for breaking down soap and fats, preventing blockages in pipes and drains…It neutralises the odour, rather than just masking it with a strong fragrance. …EcoCare Australia have been a wonderful company to deal with and what started purely from a single telephone call has developed over the years into a really solid business relationship…You have provided terrific service and just knowing that I can just ring in and talk to somebody is just great. Other companies we’ve dealt with before did not always suit us…Another thing we always support and promote is the Australia-made and environmental aspects of your product…
By using EcoCare’s products to unblock our drains and for general cleaning …we pushed out the need for septic tanks to be pumped out by double to triple the normal period.
I am very happy to recommend Ecocare Activator to anyone with an Aerated Water Treatment System. It is a fantastic product and I have been extremely impressed by it.
In my role as Directing Manager at Wastewater Consultants, I am often in the position of overseeing the servicing and maintenance of all different types of Aerated Water Treatment systems (including Aqua Novas, Biocycles, Sewage Taylex etc.) that may not be operating to standards. I have recommended Ecocare Activator regularly and have seen even the most neglected system turned around with the use of this product within as little time as one month. Even tanks that should have been pumped out have had an excellent result with Ecocare Activator.
Due to the chemical load that many systems are under with the use of harsh cleaners and dishwashers, it is not uncommon for A.W.T.S to develop odour problems. By introducing Ecocare Activator the odour is usually nonexistent within 2-4 weeks. In addition, regular weekly use according to the directions assists in breaking down the waste and helps keep pumps and filters in good order. It also seems to keep sprinkler heads and irrigation lines clear and blockage free.
The real advantage of Ecocare Activator is that by cleaning with it the product becomes more economical, but more importantly the chemical load on the system is reduced. It is also completely biodegradable; nontoxic for use in the home and safe to use on gardens. As water from A.W.T.S is often used to irrigate gardens and grassed play areas, having cleaner, safer water is a big advantage.
I am pleased to endorse regular use of Ecocare Activator in A.W.T.S as an economical way to maintain a trouble free system. We purchase large quantities of this product regularly and have always been very pleased with the results. It is a very useful waste management solution at a sensible price.
We use EcoCare’s products to maintain our septic systems in a healthy condition and no longer experience build up of waste or odour. EcoCare products are also used to destroy odour and reduce the build-up of grease and fats in the sites grease traps… Using EcoCare products as a cleaner also makes the product particularly cost effective. We can clean kitchen areas and toilet blocks and maintain our waste treatment systems with the same product…
The service team were happy to help me with any questions I’ve had in relation to the products before and after purchase. Because i run a family daycare from home it’s great knowing I’m providing the safest and cleanest learning environment for the children. One of the requirements i have is to ensure i have all MSDS available for products I’m using, and all of these can easily be found on the website which was very convenient!
I have been a customer for many years & use their ecocare product in my self edifying toilets at the West Kunderang Recreational Retreat campground!! Everyone comments on how nice the toilets are with no smell!!!!! Thanks to Ecocare!!!
