How does it work?
Odour and blocked urinals/pipework are a major issue in washrooms. Scale build up in waste water pipework is caused by a combination of limescale and uric acid which forms an ideal breeding ground for urease producing bacteria. These bacteria convert urea into ammonia, creating foul smelling odours. Scale build up ultimately leads to high emergency repair costs or high capital replacement cost.
BioHygiene Caps differ from traditional fragranced urinal blocks. Rather than mask the odour temporarily, they contain microbes that establish self-renewing biofilms deep inside pipework and plumbing lines. These biofilms secrete enzymes that break down insoluble uric scale, significantly reducing its build up and potential to block pipes. The product microbes also break down protein based waste, volatile fatty acids and ammonia ensuring sustained and effective odour control throughout the washroom.
The acidic cleaning agent reduces the build-up of classic inorganic, hard water scale, helping to keep any deposits that do form soft in consistency and more easily removed by the flush water. The product ingredients dissolve uniformly giving a controlled delivery of actives.
