Pet Drum Digester Tank - STEEL

Designed to use natural enzymatic processes and beneficial microbes to break down the wastes from your pets, these tank-style, compact septic systems are easy to install and operate. Waste is treated and digested in the confines of the tank; periodically the unit is flushed and the liquid overflows into the surrounding soil - carrying the dissolved waste into the leach field below. No significant build up of waste occurs in the drainage area - insuring years of productive use. These drums are inconspicuously located below-grade - the only visible section that will appear about ground is the foot-operated lid, made from durable polyethylene. Made from non-corrosive materials, the parts will not decompose or rust over time. Works well in all soils and climate zones (amend heavy clays with soil conditioner, compost and gravel). Harmless to animals, children and landscaping.

These digester units work as miniature septic area for dog waste. Like standard septic systems, these are designed to condition waste by converting the solid excrement to liquid. This liquid can then harmlessly drain away and be absorbed into the subsoil. This conversion to liquid would naturally occur over a long period of time if enough moisture was provided. The addition of Digester Powder utilizing enzyme action will drastically speed the rate of this conversion to liquid. Helpful microbes, which breakdown organic matter, are already present in every digester and septic system. However, the addition of enzymes acts to speed the digestion process and bypass several unpleasant side effects (such as foul odors and excessive clumping) in the process.

Features & Benefits

  • Ship with a 6 month supply of enzymes (8 oz) that are non toxic and help control odors
  • Will work with dog, cat, and pig feces
  • Unit may be expanded vertically to accommodate additional pets (extend depth passsed the 48" mark)
  • Functional performance is achieved when temperatures are above 40 degrees F - digestion rate slows during the coldest months, but will increase as temps rise
  • It is recommended that clay soils be properly amended (with gypsum and soil conditioner) to insure ample and continual drainage
  • Rainwater is an ideal water source for these digesters; chlorinated municipal water can slow bacterial activity (using lukewarm, de-chlorinated water is best)
  • Optimum temp range is 60-110 degrees F
  • Developed and perfected in Ohio
  • To avoid damage to the unit by lawn mower or pedestrians, mark location with a brick or stake
