Athens-Clarke County Government

Dear Sirs:

While attending the GWPCA Annual Conference, I came in contact with your representatives, and was informed of your product "MicroSolve", its applications and uses. Upon returning to Athens, we discussed this product further and decided to call f or a demonstration.

Your distributor, a representative of Stadco Utilities came to Athens and he was taken to two problem areas with excessive grease build up in manholes and stoppage in the lines. At this time, we applied five (5) gallons of Micro-Solve per manhole, by pouring the product along the walls, on steps and directly onto the grease build up in the inverts. After approximately two days, our crews returned to the two manholes and washed down the two problem spots. The results were amazing. The build up was totally gone. The walls of the pipe were clean and grease free.

We have now incorporated the use of Micro-solve into our routine maintenance program, and are continuing to be impressed with the results. Sewer problems due to grease build up has been less and less, saving us time and money.

I would encourage anyone in our industry to take a look at MicroSolve and what it can do as a maintenance tool in the sewer system.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dear Jim:

Thanks for the speedy delivery of our shipment of Micro-Solve last week. We try and keep our maintenance route going on schedule, but due to our new construction I had forgotten to order it as I should have. The extra effort your staff put forth is greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

We have been using Micro-Solve for about six years now. As you well know, the first two years our use of the product was sporadic at best. Our crews always seemed to be spread too thin to take the time to apply it as it should have been. It seems we always had the time or had to make the time to pump out a flooded wet well or unstop a sewer line or manhole, but we never had time to maintain a consistent program of Micro-Solve application. There has been rapid development in our local area and about five years ago we noticed we were not having the call outs and emergency sewer problems we once were experiencing. After a thorough check and constant monitoring, we found the Micro-Solve product had greatly reduced the fats, oils and grease build up in our lift stations, as well as throughout our collection system. With the aid of our TV camera, we found lines that had contained large amounts of grease were noticeably cleaner and flowing much better. At this time, we made a concerted effort to maintain a routine schedule of applying this product. While we had a good start we certainly wanted to keep it going. It has been almost four years, and we continue to be impressed at our progress. Our lines and manholes are clean and our lift station problems due to F-O-G's are minimal at best.
It has been an additional help since you have introduced Micro-Solve to our local restaurants and food processing plants. By their use of the product, it begins to break down the grease at the source. At the same time, it keeps them in compliance for their discharge permits.

I have also seen a tremendous reduction in the amount of "Duck Weed" on our lagoon. Micro-Solve has eliminated so many of the nutrients that "Duck Weed" would thrive on that there is no longer a sufficient food supply for this annoying problem, therefore, it ceases to exist. This is one of the biggest "pluses" for its use.
Time does not allow me to go on about the benefits of your product. I wanted to write and say thanks for all your time in introducing me to Micro-Solve. We all have enjoyed the professional relationship with your company. Micro-Solve has been a success, your deliveries have been prompt, and we look forward to working with you in the further.

Dear Mr. McGarva,

FCI Estill, S.C. houses approximately 1,200 inmates. The staff consists of approximately 250 officers and employees. Our waste water system utilizes a lift station and two in-line grinders to handle approximately 250,000 gallons per day. Grease deposition in the sewer line with periodic plugging is a major problem. A recent plugging episode lead us to utilize Micro--Solve. After mechanical perforation, five gallons of Micro-Solve was introduced into the system. Two weeks later, a second five gallons was added. The results were excellent.

We instigated a preventive maintenance program recommended by Bio-Tech Distribution. Our system now functions flawlessly. Maintenance cost is lower. Service interruptions are minimal.

We are pleased with the addition of Micro-Solve to our standard procedures at FCI Estill.

Cordially yours,

George Matt

Dear Dave,

I would like to thank you for all the help you and your distributor Jim DeVane with Stadco Utilities have given me in solving my grease problems using your product "Micro-Solve".
As you know, we have been using Micro-Solve" for over four years, and since using this product, grease stoppages in our sanitary lines became less frequent and soon became a thing of the past.
In addition, by adding "Micro-Solve" to an aeration pond at a 900 mgd plant, our removal of TSS increased from an average of 50-70 ppm to 75-95 ppm removal. This not only put the city back in compliance, but saved us thousands of dollars by almost eliminating aerator motor replacement costs and EPD fines, not to mention odor reduction.
We also add Micro-Solve" to our lift stations, and now our walls, float switches and control wires are clean, improving our pump efficiency, eliminating call outs to over flowing manholes and lift stations.
In addition, we have found that our sludge return at the plant is so liquified, that we have eliminated the need to unclog the lines with sewer machines, saving us both time and man hours.
I would strongly recommend, to anyone in our industry, the use of "Micro-Solve" as a maintenance tool in their collection lines, grease traps and lift stations.

Just wanted to give you an update on the progress we have had with the Micro-Solve product.
At this time we are applying Micro-Solve to the following areas of our plant:
1) The north and south grease separators
2) All inside floor drains in the bakery
3) The north and south interceptors (grease traps)
4) The bar screen and lift station at the Waste Water Treatment Plant
5) The Aeration tank at the Waste Water Treatment Plant

Our method of application is as follows:

Hand sprayer is used on the lift station which helps keep the walls and floats clean of grease. Also by applying the Micro-Solve to the separators and the drains has reduced the septic conditions and odor complaints. It also keeps the drains clean and open. Basically, it has eliminated us having to pump our grease traps out. Micro-Solve has increased the settle ability in the Aeration tank, decreased the BOD and helped to reduce my sludge wasting.

I would encourage anyone in our type industry to take a look at Micro-Solve and what it can do as a maintenance tool in their separators, drain, grease traps, lift stations, and Waste Water Treatment Plants.
