|Product Data Sheet
PRODUCT NAME: AfterShock Soil Absorption Restorative
Restores drainage to clogged and sluggish drainage fields and structures.
PRODUCT COMPOSITION: Multi-strain bacillus spore-bearing bacteria blend
Proprietary bacteria-friendly, time-release oxygen source
PRODUCT APPEARANCE: Tan
and white free-flowing powder
Earthy fragrance, not objectionable
HOW IT WORKS: AfterShock becomes
active in liquid. When introduced into a soil absorption area, AfterShock will restore drainage by biologically
digesting the solid material that normally clogs systems. The oxygen source will accelerate the bacterial activity for an
extended period of time, promoting unusually fast growth, reproduction, and biological activity of the organisms.
ADVANTAGES: Bacteria USDA authorized
Non-hazardous, non-toxic, contains no EPA Priority Pollutants
Safe for the environment
Enhances aerobic bacterial growth
Reduces sulfide respiration
Detoxifies stagnant drainage areas
backups and eliminates odors
Extends the life of soil absportion area
Utlizes natural processes
APPLICATION AREAS: Residential and commercial drain fields
and seepage pits
Recirculating sand filters
Ideal for use in conjunction with high-pressure water jetter
Ideal for use with soil facturing equipment
is a unique blend of laboratory-enhanced, naturally-occurring, primarily aerobic organisms that are type-specific to the various
substances that typically clog drain fields and leaching structures. AfterShock also contains a proprietary,
bacteria-friendly, time-release oxidizing agent that will accelerate the bacterial action of the organisms in the product
to restore drainage in most soil absorption areas.
Unlike all other bioremediation products,
AfterShock's consortium of bacteria and oxidizer can be applied at the same time.
The oxygen-accelerated bacterial action will quickly digest the organic solid materials that reduce the drain field's
capacity to absorb water, effectively restoring drainage through a natural process. The bacteria contained in AfterShock
are authorized by the USDA, and have been treating septic systems around the world since 1976.
contains no pathogens, acids, or volatile organic compounds. AfterShock is completely safe to store and use
according to directions.
NOTE: AfterShock process works best when
all solids buildup is removed from the leaching facility mechancially. AfterShock will also work best when
allowed to work uninterrupted for as long as possible. To accomplish this it is advisable to clean as much solid material
as possible from the drain field lines or drainage structure mechanically, using high-pressure water.
is advisable to pump all tanks to provide a maximum retention time for the AfterShock to work.
2. High-pressure water jet the lateral lines or drainage structure (cesspool or seepage pit)
the soil absorption area by pumping out the distribution box until no water runs back.
4. (If possible isolate each line
and treat separately to assure even disribution of the product.)
Residential: Apply 18 lbs.
AfterShock for up to 1500 gallon septic tank capacity, directly to the distribution box or septic tank discharge
Commercial: Apply 36 lbs. AfterShock per 2000 gallons septic tank capacity,
directly to the distribution box or septic tank discharge line.
Cesspools/seepage pits: Fill
cesspool or seepage pit 1/3 to 1/2 full with clear water. Apply 18 lbs AfterShock per 1000 gallon pit capacity.
5. For lateral lines only, run water (garden house or other source) into distribution box for 5-10 minutes or
until lines are full.
6. Apply 1 gallon CCLS directly into the septic tank or down any drain
in the house that leads directly to the septic tank monthly for 2 months, followed by monthly maintenance dosages of 1 quart
CCLS down any drain in the house. It is advisable to alternate drains monthly to assure buildup removal
in all drains in the home.
8. Have septic tank cleaned annually to avoid future problems.
AfterShock can be used in conjunction with soil facturing and high-pressure jetting equipment.
Store AfterShock in a cool, dry place
Reseal AfterShock package in between uses.
