- Waste materials found in drains and sewage systems are mainly made up of the organic constituents of food: carbohydrates, proteins, fats and fibres. The natural distribution of this organic waste depends on the bacteria. Bacteria can be divided into two groups: the aerobic ones, which require oxygen for their biological processes, and the anaerobic ones, which do not. Most of the systems that require both the presence and the absence of air, both types of bacteria are necessary for the digestion and decomposition of the waste.
The waste material consists primarily of insoluble solids or colloidal suspensions that cannot be ingested by bacteria. The solubilization of this solid waste must be carried out outside the bacterial cells through the action of enzymes secreted by the bacteria.
Enzymes are protein biocatalysts produced by all living cells which catalyze specific biochemical reactions that convert carbohydrates, fats and proteins into products necessary for cellular metabolism. Once the cellular metabolisms are produced, the bacteria multiply secreting more enzymes that direct more waste material. In essence, it begins a biological chain reaction that can continue until the organic matter is gone.
Modern sanitary methods of food preparation are designed to sterilize and eliminate bacteria and natural enzymes from food. In addition, many detergents contain strong alkalis and bactericides. FOSEC ZYMA was formulated to supplement the low level of enzymes and bacterial flora in today’s waste. FOSEC ZYMA contains enzymes as well as aerobic and anaerobic bacteria capable of cleaning plumbing systems by digesting organic obstructions.
FOSEC ZYMA accelerates the natural biological process of destruction of organic material in private homes and municipal cleaning systems.
FOSEC ZYMA contains several enzymes that break down and solubilize waste materials providing the food necessary for the multiplication and rapid growth of Amylases bacteria.
These enzymes break down the materials contained in starch and turn them into water-soluble products.
Vegetables and grains contain significant amounts of starch. The typical FOSEC ZYMA assay is 16,000 maltose units/g.
These enzymes direct proteins. Meats and cheeses are rich in protein. With FOSEC ZYMA 24 Northrop units per gram are tested routinely.
These fat-destroying enzymes produce water-soluble products from the typical fats found in bacon, butter, etc. The typical FOSEC ZYMA assay is 11 Lipase units/g.
Cellulose fibres from paper and vegetables often form tangles in pipes, obstructing the passage of other materials and limiting the capacity of the system. FOSEC ZYMA contains cellulolytic enzymes that help eliminate this problem. The typical test is 2 units of cellulose/g.
The addition of certain materials increases the activity of the enzymes. The activators contained in FOSEC ZYMA are such as strong salts and humectants that catalyze and accelerate decomposition reactions.
FOSEC ZYMA contains humidifiers to increase the contact between the enzyme and the waste materials.

- When cleaning drains in high-rise buildings, start treatment at the lowest level and continue floor-to-floor until the last level is reached. If treatment is started from the highest floor, the increased flow rate can flood lower levels.
Septic systems and other wastewater treatment
The proper mode of operation of septic systems is based on the principle of retention of waste until solid materials can be directed by bacteria. It is a suitable operating system, only the solubilized materials flow from the tank. Modern homes demand too much of these systems, pushing them to the limit of their capabilities. If insufficient bacterial action takes place in a septic system, solid materials will be discharged into the drain field. The porosity and consequently the efficiency of this field will be reduced.
Often times an efficient mode of operation in a septic system can be reestablished by treatment. FOSEC ZYMA provides additional bacteria and an environment that are most suitable for the growth of these bacteria.
The previously described weekly treatment can ensure adequate drainage as well as efficient waste treatment.
FOSEC ZYMA has been used successfully for many years. Here are some uses and report on their effectiveness.
POULTRY FARMS-WATER AND WASTE PITS
Using 1.5 g of FOSEC ZYMA 1 kg of dead chicken weight produced a rapid decrease in carrion. The carrion liquefies and is absorbed by the ground, leaving only the skin and bones. During the 17 to 20 days that decomposition lasts, the bad smell of the decomposition process is completely eliminated.
Overloaded oxidation ponds do not have enough oxygen and have a B.O.D. abnormally high. As a result, bad odours are released from the pool of water. Economically, the water is wasted and cannot be used for agricultural needs. By introducing FOSEC ZYMA the B.O.D. due to the increase in oxidation and in this way the bad smell is eliminated and there are possibilities of using the water for agricultural purposes.
Most slaughterhouses have constant problems with the high fat content of the waste which causes clogging and constant overflow in the slaughterhouse pits. These pits are generally cleaned once a week by hand or by pumping. This cleaning is unpleasant and expensive. By introducing a mixture of FOSEC ZYMA with 25% Pancreatic Lipase 250, cleaning costs decrease by 50-75%.
- A large number of drain cleaning and wastewater treatment products are manufactured. The exaggerated properties attributed to these products are contested with common sense and are the result of limited experience and knowledge. Enzymes and bacteria are not magic. They don’t work miracles, but they can solve many cleaning problems if used according to the following instructions.
WASTE FROM AGRICULTURE, INDUSTRY AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS:
FOSEC ZYMA is a valuable auxiliary in any system designed for the treatment of organic material waste and can be used in municipal wastewater treatment facilities, as well as in private industry. Treatment systems vary from complicated treatments to simple lagoons and settling tanks. Often the waste consists of one or two materials and the volume and flow rate of these systems varies considerably. It is difficult to make specific recommendations for the use of FOSEC ZYMA because there are factors beyond our control. As a starting point in the evaluation of FOSEC ZYMA we recommend the following HOUSEHOLD AND INDUSTRIAL DRAINS:
Drain pipes from sinks, showers, toilets, lavatories, often accumulate solids at elbows and joints resulting in reduced flow and unsanitary conditions. Grease separators installed to collect oils, solid fats, starches, and proteins must be manually cleaned at frequent intervals to maintain proper flow.
Without a specific drain that is running slowly, a heaping tablespoon of FOSEC ZYMA dissolved in a cup of warm water should be added to the drain at a time when the drain will not be used for a few hours. A long contact time is adequate and treatment is ideal throughout the night.
If caustic chemicals have been used in an attempt to clean the drain. The substances used in these formulas interfere with the natural digestion of waste and must be removed. After cleaning with a jet of water, the treatment with FOSEC ZYMA is followed as described in the preceding paragraph.
Cleaning a drain that is completely clogged presents serious problems. You should first try to create some flow in the drain using an auxiliary utensil or similar device. Dissolve two heaping tablespoons of FOSEC ZYMA in a cup of warm water and pour it down the drain. The weekly FOSEC ZYMA treatment described above will restore full flow to the drains and prevent future blockages.
