Meet the cast of characters down your drain!
The Good Guy
Say hi to Gordon. Gordon the Good Bacteria is here to save the day. He’s working bacterial miracles down your drain. Fighting the bad guys and keeping things smelling sweet.
Cleaning products from the Enviroplus and Insight Environmental range give him pro-biotic superpowers. Ignored and abused, he loses his will to live and gets defeated by Barry, the Bad Bacteria.
The Bad Guy
Barry is your frenemy*, smells great, says all the right things, behaves perfectly in public... but behind your back he’s working hard to make life miserable in your ATU and make life miserable for you.
You might know him as oxygen bleach, detergent, baby wipes, fats and oils including some essential oils. It’s vital to know what your pouring down your sink and how it’s going to affect the biology in you ATU.
*Frenemy noun INFORMAL - a person with whom one is friendly despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry.
The Ugly Truth
The Ugly Truth is just that. The ugly, inconvenient and smelly reality of things gone wrong in your ATU. It’s making it’s presence felt - all through the house and around your yard. Let’s face it, no-one wants to meet this guy. Ever.
So how do you keep this Baddie away? Firstly, by keeping your Ecowater Services quarterly maintenance up-to-date. Secondly, use household cleaning products and toilet paper that supercharge the good bacteria working hard in your ATU.
Ecowater Services uses and recommends Insight Environmental Enviroplus cleaning and household products. Choosing quality probiotic cleaning solutions can really make a big difference to the health of your ATU and save you money in the long-term. They are eco-safe and biodegrable.
The Dry, boring facts about ATU Ownership
Eventually the main tank of your ATU will get full. Your Gordon’s (the good bacteria) have done their job of reducing the volume of solids down to a minimum but the residue does need periodic removal. The friendly team at Ecowater Services monitors this and will advise you on your Quarterly Maintainance Report if it requires attention in the near future. If you have any questions regarding
