BFL Toilet Clean

Download Data Sheet

Applications: Toilets and Urinals

The traditional approach to dealing with toilet cleaning and smells from urinals is to use bleaches, sanitisers and masking agents. These chemicals act by destroying any organic material and eliminating all bacteria they come in contact with - not just those which cause smells. Due to this indiscriminate action, these chemicals which are biocidal in action are not compatible with subsequent wastewater treatment. They cause problems with microbial activity in septic tanks, package treatment plants or municipal treatment plants.

BFL Toilet Clean combines the benefits of biodegradable surfactant and microbial technologies. The product contains biodegradable surfactants and wetting agents that act to clean the surface and penetrate into deposits. The formulation contains a natural acid that helps to gradually dissolve uric acid and limescale.

The microbial part of the product consists of stabilised bacteria that produce enzymes to degrade uric acid, urea and other organics in the toilet environment. This degradation process is very efficient and eliminates these organics as a food source for odour causing organisms so that smells are eliminated and not just masked. This degradation process continues as the water flows down the drains to the sewer ensuring that drains are kept clear. This natural process is exactly what occurs in a wastewater treatment plant so the product is entirely compatible with all forms of effluent treatment.

    Conditions of use

    Since the product is biological in nature it should not be used in conjunction with bleaches, sanitisers, caustics or acids.

    In cases where there is heavy encrustation with limescale it is recommended that the limescale be removed using chemical treatment with acid based products before starting to use BFL Toilet Clean for regular cleaning.

    Directions for use

    The product is supplied as a concentrate and should be diluted 1 to 10 with clean water before use.

    Apply the product to the entire surface of the urinal or toilet bowl and scrub well using a toilet brush. Leave in contact with the surface for 20 - 30 minutes before flushing. Use as a direct replacement for normal toilet cleaners. The product can also be used on walls and floors around urinals and toilets to clean and eliminate smells.

    For portable toilets spray the diluted product liberally on a daily basis to eliminate smells and improve waste breakdown. Ensure that no sanitisers or bleaches are used while BFL Toilet Clean is being used.
