AID-Ox TM

Restores Septic Drainfields and Cesspools

DESCRIPTION

Restores drainage in clogged or sluggish drainfields or cesspools.  Detoxifies, drains and deodorizes stagnant drainage areas, enhancing conditions for aerobic bacterial growth.   

Oxygen-based, foaming porosity restorer and cleaner formulated to open clogged gravel beds, surrounding cesspools, seepage pits, drywells, and drainfields.  Free-flowing and self-dispersing dry crystalline form of hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down into non-toxic, non-polluting by-products such as oxygen, water and naturally occurring minerals. Professional strength and consumer safe.

Contains no acids, caustics or organic solvents.  Must be added directly to cesspool, seepage pit, distribution box or clean-out leading directly into the drainage area. Not for addition to septic tank.  When added to the standing water in the main access port of a cesspool, seepage pit, or distribution box Aid-Ox disintegrates the sealing crust and reconditions the bio-mat  allowing proper drainage of the drainage area.

Use on a periodic basis to maintain undersized or heavily stressed systems.  Environmentally friendly and consumer safe, Aid-Ox eliminates polluting septic system overflow.

WARNINGS

CAUTIONS

DANGERS

  • Read all cautions and directions carefully before using this product.
  • Avoid contact with eyes, skin and open wounds.
  • Do not breathe dust.
  • Do not take internally.
  • Do not mix with any other chemical. Keep away from water, metallic objects, and excessive heat.
  • Avoid contact with food.
  • Store in original container and keep lid closed. Do not transfer to any other container.
  • Store in cool, dry place.
  • DISPOSAL: Sweep up and place in closed container for disposal. Flush residuals to drain. Avoid contact with combustibles.
  • Dispose of in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
  • Use only dry clean plastic or stainless steel utensils.


NOTE: AID-Ox is an oxidizing agent. It reacts quickly when contacted with water and metallic objects. This reaction releases heat and oxygen gas which may create enough internal pressure to burst closed container.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

RESIDENTIAL SYSTEM RESTORATION:
AID-Ox must be added directly to the drainage area. For an average residential system (with a 1,000 gallon or less tank and corresponding drainage area) a total of four 1-gallon containers will be required.

CESSPOOLS, SEEPAGE PITS, AND DRYWELLS:
Any floating surface mat and bottom sludge should first be pumped out. The water level in the vessel should be at least two-thirds full before adding AID-Ox. AID-Ox will clean only the areas below the water level, such as the sidewalls where most drainage takes place. Use one container each day for three days. A noticeable drop in the water level is often seen during this period. On the fourth day add a portion of the fourth bottle corresponding to the level of water in the tank. EXAMPLE: If the tank is half-empty, use a half bottle of AID-Ox. Add similar amounts on following days until the last bottle of AID-Ox is finished.

DRAINFIELDS:
AID-Ox may be added to standing water in the distribution box or to the main line leading to the header manifold or main outlet of the septic tank in bed systems. For faster more effective results pump excess water from the drainage area first. For drainfields, divide the contents of one container between the laterals. Using a 3" diameter stand pipe and street elbow inserted into one lateral at a time add AID-Ox. For both drainfields and bed systems use water to flush the powder through to the drainage area. Repeat the procedure for two more days. Beginning on the fourth day, use one quarter of a bottle of AID-Ox each day for four more days. Wait at least one week before adding any starter bacterial products. Severely clogged systems may require a second treatment. Allow the first treatment to work for at least two weeks before deciding if a second treatment is necessary.

NOTE: Inaccessible laundry drywells can be treated by slowly adding AID-Ox into a drain leading directly to the drywell. Use a sufficient stream of water to carry the powder down the drain.  Inaccessible drainfields can be treated by adding AID-Ox through a clean out past the septic tank, or by using a funnel and hose inserted in the tank outlet. Flush through with water.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE:
Marginal or older, sluggish systems can be maintained in good working order with a periodic dose of AID-Ox. For residential systems, add a half-gallon of AID-Ox directly to the drainage facility once or twice a year as needed. The installation of a standpipe with a removable lid will make periodic treatments more convenient.


COMMERCIAL AND MUNICIPAL SYSTEM RESTORATION:
Calculate the Daily Treatment Requirement (DTR) in gallons by adding the capacity of the septic tank or cesspool plus daily water usage. Add a half-pound of AID-Ox for each 100 gallons of DTR for three consecutive days. Follow with 1 pound per day for every 1,500 gallons of DTR for 20 additional days.
EXAMPLE: A commercial system with 5,000 gallons of DTR requires 25 pounds per day for three days followed by 3 pounds per day for twenty days. Refer to the RESIDENTIAL instructions for areas to add product and for pumping requirements.

Mound and Low Pressure Dosed Systems:
Mound and Low Pressure Dosed Systems can also be effectively cleaned with Aid-Ox.  Add through any existing inspection port, stand pipe or clean out in the field.  Add to standing water in the piping or flush through with water if the system is dry.  Aid-Ox can also be added to water in the sump pit then activating the pump to pick up and transfer the product to the field. Use four gallons total over the same period of time listed in the drain field directions.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE:
Sluggish systems can be kept in good working order with a periodic dosage of AID-Ox. Use one 9 pound bottle for 2,000 gallons of DTR once or twice a year as needed. The installation of a standpipe with a removable lid will make periodic treatments convenient.
