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.

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 A. 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.
