  • Q. Can I use Sew Clean with other sewage additives?

    A. No, Sew Clean should be used solely on its own. The black water tank will need to pumped out and the sewage treatments replaced after each Sew Clean application.

  • Q. How do I clean my holding tank with Sew Clean?

    A. To best determine the amount of Sew Clean need to clean your holding tank we would need to know the capacity of your tank. Sew Clean works best on tanks if diluted 4:1. Four parts water, one part Sew Clean.

    It is best if you try to flush your tank with water a couple of time before using Sew Clean as to first remove any loose waste. This way Sew Clean can go to work on the buildup directly on the tank walls.

  • Q. How do I use Sew Clean with a Vacuflush System?

    A. First you will need to shut off your vacuflush system at the breaker. Add one quart of Sew Clean per head and flush. Let the mixed solution sit 6 to 12 hours then fresh water flush each head a few times. We recommend pumping the tank shortly after the process has been completed.

  • Q. Is Sew Clean safe for a septic system?

    A. Sew clean will by nature kill all bacteria that it comes in contact with however most often it is diluted far beyond the ability to do this once introduced into a septic tank. To be sure, you might want to flush some fresh septic enzymes a day or so after Sew Clean has been in your system.

  • Q. Can I use Sew Clean is a waterless urinal?

    A. Although Sew Clean was not intended for usage in waterless urinals and is not labeled as so, we’ve had some customers that have used it for this application with great results. The application consists of diluting the product to a 4:1 dilution ratio, filling and saturating the toilet for 4 to 8 hours, and then rinsing with fresh water.

    There are 3 main types of waterless urinals on the market at the moment and the one way valve systems works great with Sew Clean. For the Barrier Fluid urinals, the cartridge would need to be removed prior to the appliance as they often contain oil and that would affect the product negatively, and Microbiological urinals will need to have the microbial spores replenish once the application is completed.

    Also note that since uric scale is corrosive and can cause copper piping within the walls to fail fairly rapidly, so if said piping has not been upgraded when the waterless urinals where installed, using Sew Clean will cause it to clean said corrosion therefore making the problem worse, so please keep that in mind. Based on the size of most septic tanks, Sew clean should not pose a threat.

  • Q. Will Trac's solutions attack by gaskets, seals or plastics?

    A. NO! All of our solutions are specifically formulated for these types of applications. These materials can actually stay in full contact with the products for several weeks without being corrupted.
