Reducing Grease in a Municipal Lift Station – Testimonial

l started using BioLynceus products, in one of the City’s lift stations. It was a testing place where we had a grease problem.

We hand treated and in two months we went in and cleaned the wet well out. We found that all of the solids and paper products were gone.

The jet truck operator said that he cleaned it out once a year and had always had solids. The wet well had no solids or paper products and it had been eleven months since it had been cleaned. We still had grease, but it all washed off with the truck where before it had to be scrapped off.

…in two months we found that all of the solids and paper products were gone.

We had been using a degreaser that did not work very well and is not good for our lagoons.

We started treating all of the lift stations and some of the sewer mains. We treated the sewer mains where we had grease problems. When we jetted these lines later they did not have as much grease as before.

This product seemed to digest the grease and help keep it from sticking to the sewer lines.

We are now using pumps to inject the Bioscrubber and this makes it easier to use. We check the rates about once a week to keep the where we need them.

If this product works as well reducing sludge in our lagoons as it did in our lift stations, then it will let us run longer before we have to have our sludge removed, which is very costly.

We have been doing sludge profiling and later this summer we will find out if it has helped.

The other good thing about this product is that it is environmentally friendly and safe to use. I would be more than happy to answer any and all questions that you might have.
