SporActiv® Water-Soluble Film: Makes Treatment Easy and Safe

As more and more people are working remotely, their sewage and septic systems are being put to the test. We’ve written recent articles highlighting the potential for backups and the various items that shouldn’t be making their ways into your septic tank. Good news, we’ve also touched on the strength of biological treatments.

MDG manufactures pre-measured and easy-to-use septic tank pouches that work hard well after application to continue fighting potential back-ups. SporActiv® SepticPacs are pre-measured water-soluble packages created specifically for use in septic systems. To dose, it’s as simple as flushing the toilet. When first picking up these packs, you may be curious about the material. In your hands, it may feel similar to plastic, but fear not! The water-soluble packs are made of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film. When this film hits the water, it dissolves and the material becomes readily digestible by the SporActiv® microbes in the septic system.

You may already be familiar with polyvinyl alcohol film as it has been used for many years to package detergents in “pods”. The same convenience of laundry and dishwasher pods is now available for septic treatment: no measuring, no spills, no fear of incorrect dosing.

Every SporActiv® SepticPac delivers roughly 75 billion waste-degrading and environmentally friendly microbes to your customer’s septic system. Those microbes bring the power in a pouch to break down fats, oils, grease, other organic matter, and the PVA packaging.

If you’re interested in learning about how we support partners new to the industry that includes SepticPacs, please contact MDG and one of our representatives will reach out to you. #WeGotYourBAC
