Uri-bug™ Urinal Systems

How It Works

Uri-bug™ blocks contain colony forming bacteria in their dormant state. Once activated by urine, they come out of dormancy and get to work. The bacteria will find an area with suitable levels of oxygen where it will germinate and colonise to form a Biofilm. This is a complex structure which attaches itself to the internal pipe surfaces consisting of colonies of good bacteria where it will flourish and outnumber the bad bacteria to establish competitive exclusion.

The bacteria in our blocks have been subjected to a comprehensive screening programme by our microbiologist to determine it is the best strain for the job.  As soon as the bacteria begin to multiply, it will secrete enzymes in order to digest the available food source in this case urinal blockages. Uri-bug™ bacteria produce Uricase enzymes, which are responsible for the breakdown of the uric salts making them water soluble so that they can be washed away. The enzyme, Protease is also present and enables the bacteria to digest protein matters (organic substances).

The Superior bacteria we exploit within the urinal system is a living breeding life form and is highly sensitive to change in PH or oxygen levels, this can have a detrimental effect upon the structure of the organism, to alleviate this issue it is imperative the system is serviced on a regular basis. Hygienic Concepts Engineers will visit site on a monthly schedule doing a full clear and replenishment of cartridge ensuring optimum breeding levels are sustained at all times.

Any form of disinfectant type chemicals or bleaches will also interfere with the molecular formation even killing it off completely, rendering the whole product ineffectual. We provide a bioactive liquid that compliments and supports the Uri-bug system.  Full training is available as it is essential this product is used in place of other non-bio cleaners.

How Can Uri-bug Help Your Business

Reduce blockages

Upon install, Hygienic Concepts acid wash and clean all visible pipework, Our engineers will fully check and report any build up further down the main stack of which they cannot access, Site will be made aware of any findings and advised on removal as to a ascertain complete clear pipe system

Reduce Malodours

As we clean all visible pipework, it leaves optimum breeding grounds for the ‘good’ bacteria (encouraged by the Uri-bug liquids and the regular service/maintenance) this depletes the growth of pathogens (smelly bacteria) within the pipework so no foul gases return to the atmosphere, Uri-bug liquids can be also used to break down uric/protein build-up on tiles/walls/floors as it finds a way into cracks and crevices and naturally eats away debris not reached by harmful chemical based products

Save Money

As we encourage the growth of ‘good bacteria within the pipework, the system is not required to continually flush, this is controlled by the Uri-bug digital water manager, serviced and maintained by our engineers, it is manually checked monthly and reduced as to coincide with footfall to get maximum potential from the Uri-bug system, We aim to reduce flushes to as low as 4 x per day minimum, saving £££’s into the fact, add to the savings on Plumber call outs, time reduction of site maintenance men constantly having to deal with blocked pipework and not having to purchase numerous cleaning chemicals Uri-bug can be extremely financially beneficial.

Sustainability and Environmental

The cleaning industry are constantly under scrutiny regarding environmental impact from chemical overuse, by flushing certain cleaning products through our washroom areas, chemicals react with other minerals and elements to form a host of dangerous toxins. These toxins including dioxins, furams and PCDD’s are often referred to as ‘persistent organic pollutants’ because they linger in the water or soil and take many years to disappear.   Greenpeace calls dioxins one of the most dangerous chemicals known to science and warns that it can contribute to cancer, endocrine disorder and other serious health effects. In fact, university studies have found dioxins are linked to low sperm count, testicular cancer and breast cancer due to their ability to mimic human hormones.  That is without the dreadful impact these toxins have on our wildlife and marine life.

The strains of bacteria present within the Uri-bug system do not pose any danger to humans or natural life. In fact they are beneficial to the environment, once flushed into the natural watercourse, they continue to release their enzymes who in turn digest organic debris they continue multiplying until  all food sources are depleted or reach salt water, where they will die or revert back to their dormant state, having no detrimental impact on marine life or surrounding habitats.

Added Protection & Monthly Maintenance

Essential Monthly Maintenance

The Uri-bug™ vessel must be replaced on a monthly basis to ensure its effectiveness. The imperative monthly replacement cycle replenishes the biofilm for the good bacteria to thrive in.

For our monthly service customers, engineers will also carry out checks on pipework for any uric salt or limescale build up and adjust flushing accordingly.

With the correct servicing and cleaning, pipework will remain clear, free flowing and be smelling clean and fresh. Leaving you with a pleasant washroom experience.

Added protection for all your washroom areas

For optimum results, we strongly recommend utilising our best of the best Uri-bug™ liquids in all your washroom areas. Suitable for all surface types and available in handy containers there is no need to purchase any other cleaning product, thus saving you storage space, time, money and the environment. Our engineers will even deliver your liquid when they come to service, so no delivery costs to incur.

Simple to use with fantastic results, so let us help you send that bad bacteria packing.

Cleaning has never been so easy. Simply mop the floor with a diluted solution, then just walk away. For surfaces, just spray and wipe down with a damp cloth, it really is that simple, Uribug™ does the hard work for you. The same way Uribug™ works inside pipes, our cleaning liquids will also create that special biofilm on surfaces keeping it protected and smelling fresher for longer. It’s just like having your own little cleaning army on standby, they attack when needed.
