Background – John Cocker operates Cocker Plumbing located in Homestead, Florida. John’s business services commercial properties, food facilities, apartment buildings and residential septic systems. He routinely provides service maintenance of facility effluent lines, grease traps and absorption fields (drain fields).
John stated that he was a past user of AquaClean, and was retuning to our product based on the performance comparisons he had observed in various competitive applications. John had switched to a competitive supplier (Bio-One) based on a relationship with the salesmen, lower cost and information that the product would out perform AquaClean. During the period he used the competitive bio-product John saw no system benefits what so ever. He used the competitive product in the same manner and at the same feed rates as previously used with AquaClean. His comparison of these products performance and the superior AquaClean results was the reason for his return to BluePlanet.
Applications – John has successfully used AquaClean to reduce his service time in system clean-out and pump-out of both septic tanks and grease traps, as well as to improve effluent flow to absorption field in commercial operations where the systems are organically and hydraulically overloaded. The application of AquaClean is done at the time of pumping, and again during any system service or maintenance.
Restaurant Grease Trap System - John services a major BBQ Restaurant with an effluent flow of 10,000 gallons/day. He modified the effluent treatment system that had consisted of a single 750/gal grease trap and 1,500 gallon septic tank, by adding three additional grease traps before the septic tank. The current system has a 750gal/ GT, to which he added one 900gal/GT and two 1,500 gal/GTs, in-line before the 1,500 septic tank, with effluent to an absorption field.
Johns adds one quart of AquaClean to each of the systems tanks every time he pumps the grease traps and septic tank. He advised that the use of AquaClean controls or eliminates the hard surface grease in all tanks, and eliminates or reduces the build up of grease balls and grease chunks; and that AquaClean makes a significant difference in the over all condition of the system at time of service.
John stated that the competitive formulation used “at the same feed rate” in the same systems, “showed on impact on the systems tanks for solids and grease control”, and this prompted his returned to AquaClean.
