Do you have a BIOROCK installation or do you wish to invest in one of our wastewater treatment solutions? Be aware that there are certain products to avoid if you want them to last over time!
In this article, we will give you a list of the products we recommend and the ones you should not use.
First of all, it is essential to explain the reason why some products cannot be put in our tanks.
In the past, only toilet water was discharged into septic tanks. Nowadays, it receives all domestic wastewater: from the shower, the washing machine, the kitchen; hence the name "Primary Tank".
All the chemical products used for the cleaning of the house are thus rejected in this first tank. They will then follow the same treatment cycle as the wastewater discharged into the treatment plant: decantation and then purification in a second tank through biological treatment.
With a biological wastewater treatment, small bacteria (living organisms) devour the organic impurities. It is with the help of these bacteria that your environmentally friendly installation can function efficiently.
So be very careful! Since the whole system works thanks to living organisms, the use of certain products could compromise the health of these little bacteria, and therefore prevent your installation from treating your water! A tank without its bacteria means a risk of bad odors, or even worse, a tank that clogs and overflows.
To take care of these micro-organisms, here are some practices to adopt on a daily basis.
As you may have read in your user's guide, it is forbidden to discharge certain products into the installation so as not to affect its purification performance, such as :
These must be evacuated to a collecting and recycling center.
For the protection and proliferation of bacteria, do not use cleaning products containing bleach or caustic soda. Also, do not use cleaning wipes that contain antibacterial agents that are harmful to the proper functioning of your wastewater treatment solution.

At the same time good for your body, for the environment, and therefore for your installation, here are the natural products that you can use to replace chemical household products :
Now you are aware of the prohibited products and the natural products that replace them perfectly. All you have to do is change your routine a little and you will be sure not to damage your BIOROCK treatment plants.
