Biological product for collection system maintenance. Degrades fats, prevents drains, sewer pipe lines from blockages and reduces odors.
Ecosocks is a biological product which controls FOG buildup, reducing blockages and simplifying collection system maintenance.
It contains an advanced blend of microorganisms specially selected to give Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) treatment solutions.
FOG control and buildup removal are best achieved through long-term continuous use. Depending on flow rates and FOG loading in the collection system, Ecosocks’ technology can more than double the time between cleanings and eliminate hot spots where FOG has a tendency to accumulate.
It is ideal for cleaning municipal sewer pipe lines, pump stations, wells, septic tanks, etc.
- It liquefies and degrades FOG.
- It reduces significantly the frequency between cleaning and maintenance procedures in sewer pipe lines, pump stations and grease collection wells.
- Reduces malodors caused by FOG concentration.
- Biological product with no caustic soda.
- Biodegradable product for environmental protection.
Ecosocks FOG control technology promotes fatty acid degradation using a synergistic blend of microorganisms selected for high rates of organic digestion along with additives to enhance the biodegradation. FOG is composed of triglycerides. Ecosocks break the triglycerides into glycerol and short-chain fatty acids, both of which are biologically degraded. In addition, the Ecosocks’ components are lipophilic, so they will attach to grease deposits, increasing the rate of degradation.
The partial breakdown of grease causes the pH to drop due to the release of fatty acids, creating an environment that is inhibitory to most bacteria. However, Ecosocks are active at low pH levels. Furthermore, the addition of Ecosocks alleviates problems with low pH by breaking down both short- and long-chain fatty acids, thus maintaining an environment more amenable to active microbial degradation.
When applied within sewer systems, Ecosocks can be used to alleviate sewer overflows due to FOG buildup and blockages. Regular use of Ecosocks can prevent the buildup of FOG in the sewer line and in lift stations, helping to prevent pump and sensor fouling and collection system odors caused by FOG buildup.
Ecosocks is a free-flowing tan powder packaged in 907 gr biosocks for gradual release. The socks are attached to a cord, tied to a manhole ladder and suspended in the water. For best results, they need to be removed and replaced every 1–2 weeks. They can be partially submerged within a wet well or allowed to sit in the flow within a sewer. The product van also be applied directly as a powder.
They contain a blend of patented spore-forming FOG degraders and fast-acting vegetative FOG-degrading microorganisms. It offers a high-performance solution for FOG control.
FOG typically enters the sewer system from restaurants and residential sources. As it enters the system, it begins coating the sewer and floats on top of the water in locations where the water is relatively still, for example pumps stations or low flow sections of pipe. As FOG coats the sewer line, it can accumulate over time and eventually cause blockages which can lead to sewer line overflows. Also as FOG accumulates in low oxygen environments, it can partially degrade, leading to foul-odor volatile fatty acids cause the pH of the water to drop. The low pH encourages the stripping of hydrogen sulfide, which not only causes additional odors but is corrosive and a human health hazard.
A standard method of remedying FOG build up is by physical means. This often includes having a crew of operators jet the line, which pushes the FOG downstream. This can increase FOG loading and cause operational problems at the receiving plant.
Ecosocks are a cost –effective alternative to labor –intensive FOG control methods. Regular use prevents the buildup of FOG and helps reduce operating costs by decreasing the need for physical cleaning of pump stations and sewer lines. Furthermore, pump stations operate without sensor fouling and clogging and the sewers maintain their flow capacity, improving the overall operation of the system.

Accurate dosage of the product is dependent on the wastewater flow, the grease load and the cleanout frequency. Ask our technician.
