Bio Ball - it's so powerful that it's kept in a cage!
Our Urinal Bio Ball, a biological block that contains billions of friendly bacteria, which include several different enzymes, surfactants and a detergent. The Bio Ball is activated when a small amount of liquid is passed over it, this can either be water or urine. Once activated the enzymes are carried into the drain and the fragrance is released into the air. The enzymes will then break down all fats, oils and greases, uric salt, lime scale, and anything organic or bio. Once the drains are clean the surfactants in the Bio Ball will then coat the inside of the drains to ensure that nothing can adhere to the drains.
As advised, the Bio Ball is activated on a small amount of liquid, this allows the user to reduce urinal flushing to just 1 – 4 janitorial flushes once a day to clear the drains of any debris build up. The water and sewage savings is significant to the user as well as bringing down their CO2 emissions.
Water is becoming an important component when looking at cost savings, however some people are sceptical about the hygiene standards being reduced, this is not the case when Bio Ball is used. It eliminates all problems within the urinal and will ensures a pleasant and sustainable washroom.
Bio Ball is an urinal block system that cleans urinal drains, dramatically reduces washroom maintenance costs while supporting your business profile to be environmentally ‘on the Ball’.
Bio Ball has integrated innovative design with the science of enzymes. The Bio Ball provides a cost effective solution to ongoing problems of urinal maintenance while dramatically reducing water wastage and enhance the washroom environment.
The Bio Ball cage encases the powerful biological enzyme block which can be elevated above the flushing waterline with or without the use of an integrated pedestal ‘lollipop stick’.
The Bio Ball cage system ensures a sludge free solution for urinal maintenance. Bio Ball will not dye the urinal or end up being a sludgy mess at the bottom of the drains after a few weeks use.
The unique and patented* design of the Bio Ball solution, optimises the extremely powerful biological elements of protease, lipase and urease to create a strong anaerobic reaction within the urinal system, gradually clearing all forms of nasty substances that can cause blockages.
We have also recently added new products for a complete washroom solution that have the same unique properties of the Bio Ball. Please see the Bio Ball System for further information.
Urinals have always been seen as the ‘problem area’ of the washroom environment. The Bio Ball Cleaning System can eradicate this problem with simple to use, cost effective, environmentally friendly products.
- Excess water which is a breeding ground for bacteria
- Bacteria attaches to the solid matter in urine which causes scale to build up in the pipes and drainage network
- Bacteria when combined with urine creates odour producing bacteria which results in foul smelling washrooms
- The Bio Ball is placed in a clean urinal bowl. Bio Ball can then be placed next to the urinal outlet grill, inserted on top of the urinal grill with the attachment of the integrated ‘lollipop stick’ or attached to the back of the urinal bowl with the use of a Bio Ball “Holster”
- Then the flushing water levels of the urinal need to be either turned off or reduced to a minimum.
- The Bio Ball team recommend the use of a water management system such as the ES50
- The Bio Ball is now installed and ready for use
- When the Bio Ball enzyme block has dissolved simply replace
Bio Ball has no expensive fitting or installation costs which leads to no disruption in your washroom environment, but still delivers a first class performance solution.
Dependant on your local water authority you can save up to €789.00 per cistern per year on water savings, not to mention the reduction on your CO2 emissions.
Calculations are based on €2.30 per metre cubed (1,000 Litres)
|Flushes Per Day||Cistern Capacity||Total Litres per year||Cost|
More cost savings can be achieved if you use the cistern bags which displaces a litre of water per bag in the cistern reducing the amount of water used in a flush. On average a further 11% savings achieved per bag.
On top of this you will not have the expensive cost of drain and sewage clearance, at an average of 1-2 visits per year. Which is a saving of €150 – €300.00 per washroom.

When using Bio Ball for the first time ensure that the bowl of the urinal is clean, and debris must be removed on a regular basis
Remove the Bio Ball from the packaging
Bio Ball can either be placed freely at the outlet of the urinal, or
Can be integrated onto the outlet drain with the use of the pedestal. The pedestal is inserted into the base of the Bio Ball as shown. This will provide a more aesthetic appearance to the urinal bowl and stops the Bio Ball from rolling around. When the Bio Ball is elevated above the flushing waterline it allows Bio Ball to work at its optimum efficiency.
