Do I Need to Treat my Grease Trap?

Treating your drains and grease trap with a bacterial additive is not a legal requirement. However, extensive independant studies have shown that approved and licenced treatments significantly reduce the buildup of FOG (fats, oils & Grease) in pipes, drains and grease traps. This is turn reduces the frequency of expensive cleaning which justifies the cost of treatment.  

Can I Treat the Grease Trap Myself?

Yes. Bacterial treatments are safe to handle and environmentally friendly. They can be hand dosed into a sink at regular intervals but they are most effective when allowed to sit in an idle plumbing system for up to 4 hours each day e.g. last thing at night. 

Automated dosing via a digital peristaltic pump is recommended as it eliminates human error and ensures consistent, accurate and timed dosing each day. 


Do All Drain Treatments Work?

No. The use of enzymatic drain treatments is questionable. Studies show that these additives temporarily suspend and liquify FOG (food, oils & Grease) which can later solidify further down the line to cause blockages. .Care must be taken as it is illegal to use Acids or similar preparations on commercial premises 

When choosing a bacterial drain treatment look for a purchase from a well-established supplier. A reputable company supplies and installs a dosing pump which will give 4 months of protection ie 3x 20l drums if you commit to buying their product. 


How Does the Bacterial Treatment Work?

Simply put, approved bacterial treatments digest Grease and other organic waste to prevent FOG (fats, oils & Grease) from blocking pipe systems and grease traps.

The Technical Bit: 

Fats, Oils, and Grease, or triglycerides, have a common molecular structure, consisting of a glycerol headpiece to which three fatty acid chains are attached. In the first hydrolysis stage of breakdown, the enzyme lipase catalyses the removal of the fatty acid chains from the glycerol headpiece. The second stage is beta-oxidation, in effect where the liberated fatty acids are cleaved, 2 carbon units at a time, forming a molecule called acetyl coenzyme A – water and energy. This process continues until the entire fatty acid molecule has been cleaved into acetyl coenzyme A molecules.

 Finally, acetyl coenzyme A enters the Krebs cycle (TCA cycle/citric acid cycle) to be oxidised into carbon dioxide and water with the production of energy.

How Do I Get Rid of Bad Smells?

Foul odours are the result of a poorly maintained or badly designed grease trap. A good quality bacterial treatment will reduce foul odours, but there is no substitute for a well-designed grease trap.

• The unit's lid should be mechanically secured to create a 100% airtight and watertight seal.

• It should only be opened for emptying.& maintenance

• It should be adequately vented to allow the controlled escape of foul odours.

• A maintenance plan is recommended.

Treatment for All Grease Traps

ALUZYME® is a time-proven bacterial additive that is automatically dosed into dynamic pipe systems daily. It safely and economically digests Grease and other organic waste buildup and turns it into carbon dioxide and water. The micro-organisms in ALUZYME® break down and digest organic waste on contact. This keeps drains, pipes, and Grease Traps functioning as new.







Treatment for Eliminating Odours


Bio Block


Treatment for Waste Water Sumps.

BIO BLOCK will gradually dissolve over a 30 to 90-day period and the naturally occurring bacteria will reduce odour, sludge, fats, oils and Grease. This will significantly reduce maintenance and cleaning thereby prolonging the life of pumps and working parts. Suitable for use in pumping stations, effluent treatment plants, holding tanks, wet wells and lagoons.


  • Environmentally Friendly Formulation

  • Reduces Odours

  • Slow Release Treatment.

  • Reduces Costly Pump Outs & Cleans

  • Reduces Sludge, Food, Oils & Grease
