  • Once opened, the contents of the container should be used immediately. Containers should not be allowed to freeze and should be stored off of the ground (shelf, pallet, etc.)
  • Ponder™; increases microbial activity resulting in nutrient reduction and biodigestion of organic matter
  • Shactivate™ is an additive that is used in septic/sanitation waste (toilets, septic systems, sinks, garborators, recreational vehicles) to reduce:
    • odours and gases,
    • organic sludge saving , and

  • Shactivate™ comes in 1 litre and 10 litre containers.
  • Shactivate™ can be applied directly to wastewater storage (septic tanks, outhouses).
  • Shactivate™ begins to work by 'tying up' toxins and chemicals present in the wastewater. Next, bio-stimulants, cause increased levels of activity (bio-digestion, growth and reproduction) in the resident microbes naturally present in the wastewater.
