About the Solution:

Pit-Boss® pit and lagoon treatment is an environmentally safe and pH-controlled product, not an enzyme or bacteria like most competitive products.

Waste digestion involves three distinct bacteria types: aerobic bacteria, which break solids down into fatty and amino acids; anaerobic bacteria, which convert those acids into problematic gases such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and methane; and facultative bacteria, capable of performing either role.

Pit-Boss® interacts chemically with waste constituents to boost the aerobic manure digestion process. The result: Accelerated solids breakdown and relatively lower gas production. Less gas, and faster suspension of solids means dramatically reduced odor. The first application of Pit-Boss® for example, typically lowers combined gas levels 20-25%. Subsequent applications achieve similar results. In most cases, odor measures just 3-4 ppm after the third application, so your facility is safer for people, better for livestock and friendlier to the community.

Additionally, highly liquefied waste not only emits less odor, it also saves you time and money by making quick, efficient pump-outs possible. Pit-Boss® pit and lagoon treatment breaks down solids fast. In fact, the first application of Pit-Boss® typically reduces the sludge blanket on a holding pit by 4-6 inches, the second by another 12 inches. After the third application, most pits and lagoons are entirely free of solids. Furthermore, digesting the top crust on your pits or lagoons destroys egg-laying habitat for flies. With Pit-Boss® Chem-A-Co strives to help farmers achieve fewer odors, easier pump-outs and fewer flies.
