“I have four anaerobic cells, and when we measured them [after treatment] we gained thirteen feet of space, about eight thousand cubic meters (8,000 m3). For a small town like us that is huge. Acti-Zyme eat all the biomatter. We also struggled with 18 inches of floating biomass on top of the cells. That is gone too. The quote for manual removal was $250,000 plus we had to find a place to put it. The other important thing is that my lift stations used to smell for blocks, now they don’t smell. We don’t have that anymore. In my opinion it works, and it will work no matter where it is. Acti-Zyme doesn’t do exactly what they say it would do, it does more. I am an advocate, because it works.”

“We have used Acti-Zyme for 20 years. It is an amazing product. We use it in our lagoon, lift stations and man holes. The lagoon was cleaned out recently for the first time since 1990 with very little sludge. Our lift stations are almost odourless. The difference is day and night not using Acti-Zyme.”
Malcolm Matthews, Formost, Alberta, Canada
Acti-Zyme has focused on technical development, product testing and partnerships with consultants, and utilities for technical third-party verification, and pilot projects.
“Once we started using the product, we noticed that it was working quite well so we kept using it. At our lift station we are using 1 bag every 3 days and at our lagoon. During the summer we use 4 bags every 3-6 days which is showing progress right away.
Also the product is making a big difference in our sewer lines and cleans up the sludge well.”
Joshua Nelson, Weyakwin, Saskatchewan
“The Town of Nipawin had issues with lard build up in our sewage lift pump manholes as the floats and pipe elbows accumulated lard. The video showed that about 80% of the lard was gone off the pipes after using Acti-Zyme. The town regularly puts LS7 into our lift stations and manholes downstream about once every couple of weeks to keep pipes clear from lard building up.”
Rick Dabek, Utilities Foreman, Nipawin, Saskatchewan
Acti-Zyme is a non-toxic, all natural, biological technology for rehabilitation and maintenance of wastewater systems.
“We started using Acti-Zyme about 4 years ago and we have been very happy with the effectiveness of the product. We use the LS7 (F.O.G.) product in our lift stations on a weekly basis and have seen a very noticeable decrease in the amount of grease build up, not only in our stations, but throughout our collection system and at our wastewater treatment facility. We constantly had a thick mat of grease in a chamber right before our first lagoon that required constant maintenance. Since we started using the Acti-Zyme product, the Mat is gone and has not come back. What grease that still exists is much more manageable when our regular cleaning takes place. I have noticed that since using LS7 that our stations and other infrastructure is much easier to clean, cutting down in maintenance costs. I would recommend using the product.”
Doug Hagen, District of Invermere, British Columbia.
“The costs of this whole clean up project was only $30,500.00 which saved our town $94,500.00 and now have a very clean lagoon. We believe in this product and are committed to continue to use it as a preventative maintenance program so that we don’t have this issue arise again in the future. We would recommend the use of Acti-Zyme in any system that has issues with sludge build up.”
