The Meaning of the EPA Safer Choice Program Logo

EPA SaferChoice logoWith 85% of businesses creating sustainability initiatives, and consumers showing increased interest in environmental matters, environmental conscious products are increasingly in demand. In fact, surveys show that a product’s environmental impact is an important factor considered by   consumers in making their buying decisions.

The U.S. EPA Safer Choice Program parallels worldwide interest in environmental safety and sustainability. The purpose of this program is to help identify and develop environmentally safer products.

Once a product passes the specifications of that program, the EPA allows the display of the Safer Choice logo. This logo “allows consumers to quickly identify and choose products that can help protect the environment and are safer for families.”

In order to pass EPA Safer Choice requirements, a product must undergo a rigorous review by the EPA and a third party scientific review team. This team carefully screens each ingredient for any potential human health and environmental effects. The team reviews not only the ingredient, but its chemical structure, to see how it could impact the environment and people.

Only products that are made of the safest possible ingredients are eligible for approval. BioOne has passed the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Program’s criteria and proudly displays the Safer Choice logo in recognition of its positive effect on human health and the environment.

How BioOne Works in Septic Systems

drain field septic systemSeptic systems require live bacteria to consume, digest, and degrade grease, oil, and other organic matter so that proper functioning can be maintained. When a septic system is properly maintained, the connected drain field can also function according to design.

Subjected to bleaches, detergents, and other chemicals, naturally occurring bacteria struggle to survive and keep up with the influx of waste in residential and commercial septic systems.

Liquid BioOne is formulated to work in the harsh conditions of septic systems. BioOne requires no pH neutralizing and is performance ready. BioOne contains no added enzymes or other emulsifying agents which only liquefy solid waste. BioOne’s bacteria eat and digest the solid waste without the unbalanced action of enzymes or surfactants.

The most effective way to maintain a septic system is to inoculate the tank with BioOne immediately after pumping.

After your septic system has been pumped: Your technician will add BioOne directly into the clean tank.

To properly maintain your septic system: Between pumping, follow the instructions on the label of the 64 oz. BioOne that your technician has left with you.

Residential Drain Field Rejuvenation with BioOne

drain fieldResidential drain fields are designed to allow the discharged water to percolate through the biomat. Drain fields fail for several reasons:

  1. Hydraulic overload (too much water being released into the septic tank and then discharged into the drain field)
  2. Organic overload (too much non-degraded grease, oil, and organic matter)
  3. Chemical overload (excessive chemicals destroy the bacteria necessary for degrading waste)
  4. Faulty design or installation

For best results, pump septic tank and add 2.5 gallons of liquid BioOne directly into the septic tank. Adding another 2.5 gallons of liquid BioOne for every 400 square feet of drain field through the distribution box and or header pipe is also strongly advised. Continue treatment by following the recommended dosing parameters.

For completely failed drain fields, the most immediate results will be obtained when liquid BioOne dosing is coupled with soil fracturing.
