How does Noflex work?
If Noflex Digester is introduced into the sewage system, it sinks to the bottom of the holding tank with the dead bacteria sludge. Upon contact, anaerobic concentrates react with sludge lifting it into the mainstream where micro-bubbles of oxygen are released. The micro-bubbles of oxygen will break up waste after releasing proteins from sludge so that live bacteria can feed on the dead bacteria sludge making it a friendly medium to maximize growth capacity. It neutralizes the chemicals that destroy anaerobic bacteria that are required for the efficient operation of the Marine Sanitation Device (MSD). If the normal bacterial digestion of shipboard is compromised, there will be a buildup of anaerobic sludge in the piping system and MSD which will result into unpleasant odors. Immediately upon contact, sludge will be liquefied and odors will be neutralized.
Treatment for recreational vehicle holding tanks
Recreational vehicles are not as big as cruise ships but their holding tanks can be plagued with the buildup of anaerobic sludge on the piping system. This will result into unpleasant odors or the more dangerous fumes that can vent into passenger spaces. For black water holding tanks, the suggested dosages of Noflex Digester is half an ounce every 5 to 7 days onboard per person. If there are issues with odors when flushing the toilet, 1 ounce into the tank will take approximately 5 minutes to work to remove the unpleasant odor. For systems with severe sludge, one half ounce can be used at least 2 times daily until the tank is cleaned. It works better on a routine basis rather than when used in particularly large doses at one time. For grey water drains and tanks, it is suggested to use one cup into the drain with a cup of cold water so that hair and waste matter will be pushed out of the drain. This solid waste can be collected and disposed of properly.
Most people will not know whether the treatment is working or not since there will be little improvements in flow and odors over time. To ensure that the treatment is working properly, the first setting tank can be opened and the top level of the sludge marked and checked every week. There should be a noticeable drop as the flow increases with only a heavy beer yeast smell as an indication that it is healthy. However, when using it as treatment, avoid the introduction of bleach and other disinfectants into the system.
