When the volume capacity of a waste system is unknown, the table below will help determine liquid holding capacity by using its dimensions. For a round unit, such as a cesspool or drywell, determine the diameter and the depth of the unit. For a given diameter, multiply the depth by the number of gallons per foot of depth. For example, a well 5' in diameter and 10' in depth would have a capacity of 1468.8 gallons.
DETERMINE THE GALLON CAPACITY OF
A RECTANGULAR TANK (Grease Trap or Septic Tank)
Multiply: Length x Width x Height x 7.5
Example: A tank W long, 4' in depth and 5' wide has the capacity of 1500 gallons
For Slow Running Drains: Use 6 parts NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC mixed with 4 parts hot water applied directly to problem area. Let stand for a minimum of 1 hour. Flush thoroughly with hot water. Repeat if necessary.
Preventive Maintenance: Use 2 parts NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC mixed with 8 parts hot water once a week at a time that the plumbing will have its longest period of non-use at night. Alternate treatment weekly to various drain lines (sink, shower, tub, etc.).
Septic Tank - Cesspools Drywells Drainfields:
Note - Prior to treating system, first check all Plumbing for water leaks to avoid overloading system. Be sure septic tank/cesspool has been pumped dry and cleaned. NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC treatment should be introduced to the system as close to the problem area as possible.
1. Septic tank - treat at leach line from tank to field
2. Cesspool - treat directly
3. Drywell - treat directly
Initial Treatment: Use 1 gallon of NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC premixed with 4 gallons of water per day for each 1000 gallons capacity for 2 days in succession and wait 3 days. If problem continues to exist, REPEAT, or call your NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC dealer for additional assistance on proper treatment. Preventive Maintenance: Use 4 ounces of NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC mixed with 16 ounces of water once per week applied through any drain.
Cleaning & Deodorizing Plumbing Fixtures, Ceramic Wall & Floor Tile, etc.:
Use 4 parts NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC to 10 parts hot water. Apply with brush or mop. Rinse thoroughly with clear water
Use NOKOMIS DRAIN MAGIC undiluted. Allow to remain 20-30 minutes. Agitate with brush Rinse with clear water.
IF SPILLED, RINSE THOROUGHLY WITH COLD WATER IMMEDIATELY.
