Bio Enzyme Drain Maintainer: FAQs & Benefits

With up to 70% of drain blockages in commercial kitchens caused by a build up of Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) the need for effective grease management is vital for any commercial catering operation.

What is a Bio Enzyme System?

Our Bio Enzyme Drain Maintenance solution includes a concentrated enzyme drain maintainer chemical that’s designed to be applied directly to the drains through our automatic battery-operated dosing pump. This complete solution automatically applies the bio-enzyme formula to the affected drains, usually dosing during the night when your kitchen is not operational.

The highly concentrated active bio-enzymatic fluid has been specifically formulated to degrade grease, fats and oils found in commercial kitchen drains, and by regularly applying the formula through the pump, it prevents blockages from even forming.

It’s a cost-effective solution that can be used as a stand-alone grease management solution, or in combination with a grease trap, and meets the requirements and obligations set out by the UK waterboard.

How do Enzymes work?

Enzymes are biochemical digesters. Enzymes work by breaking apart large complex compounds (substrates) into smaller, more readily absorbed nutrients that the bacteria can absorb. Each Enzyme (known as a key) is designed to unlock and break down a specific food source. So depending on what you need to break down, you need a specific bacteria to produce that enzyme.

Our concentrated Enzyme Drain Cleaner Maintainer formula has been specifically designed to break down the fats, oils and grease most commonly found to cause blockages in commercial kitchens and food production facilities.

Why do I Need To Use Enzymes?

With today's modern industry using harsh cleaning chemicals, high temperatures and speed of production most drains and treatment plants are at full capacity, so natural enzymes need a helping hand to cope with the high demand placed on them.

How Often Do I Need To Apply It?

It’s recommended that our Enzyme Drain Cleaner Maintainer is dosed automatically through the dosing pump, as it’s most effective applied little and often to build-up complete protection. As a rough guide, we recommend dosing one hour before the end of the working day, so it gets a chance to build-up in the drains during the night without being washed away.

The dosing size and quantity will depend on a number of factors, including the number of meals per day and the drain system
