EcoSock Products – Slow Release Technology
EcoSocks are a combination of powdered bacteria and nutrients, with a self contained oxygen source. When placed in water they slowly release bacteria to assist in a variety of treatment objectives. EcoSocks come in a variety of formulations, including grease, lagoon sludge, and pond algae control. EcoSocks have several other advantages. They are in powder form, and have an indefinite shelf life and very low storage and transportation costs. Once placed into wastewater, the EcoSocks hydrate and then function as mini bioreactors. EcoSocks include specialized bacteria, nutrients, and growth additives that work together to deliver the sustained dose of live, active bacteria required to provide the desired results.
EcoSocks Products for Convenient Slow Release Treatment in Wastewater
Wastewater treatment superintendents face a challenging problem in maintenance of pump stations and sewer lines. Despite pretreatment efforts, grease build-up in sewer lines and lift stations in inevitable. This build-up causes two major problems. First, expensive and sometimes dangerous manual cleaning and pumping is required to ensure that the station works correctly. Second, grease build-up contributes to odors, including sulfide. At last, Eco Scientific, Inc. (ESI) offers a simple solution to these problems.
ESI introduces EcoSocks, your most cost-effective solution to sewer line and lift station grease build-up problems. EcoSocks are unlike anything previously available. Like some products, they contain powdered mixtures of specialized bacteria and nutrients, which together digest grease and scum. But the patent-pending EcoSocks also contain a unique, pH buffered slow-release oxygen source. This means that with EcoSocks, you actually produce huge numbers of active, grease-digesting bacteria inside the product container – without costly bioreactors.
EcoSocks are packaged in a convenient natural fiber bag and include an attached 12-foot tether. To install an EcoSock, simply tie the tether to a rail or post, and let the EcoSock stay submerged in wastewater where they are most needed.
EcoSocks provide constant release of grease-digesting bacteria and last up to 8 weeks before replacement. That means only minutes per month are needed to use the EcoSocks properly. Nothing is as easy and as effective as EcoSocks.
To see how cost-effective EcoSocks can be at your facility, simply complete the worksheet. EcoSocks have solved grease problems in municipal and industrial wastewater application worldwide. ESI offers technical supper for EcoSock use, as well as a full range of systems and products for the wastewater treatment market.

EcoSocks Products for Convenient Slow Release Treatment in Ponds: EcoSock-P
EcoSocks are also very effective in treatment of excessive algae in ponds. Used either alone, or in combination with EcoClear products, control of excessive algae growth improves pond water quality by slow release of bacteria that remove nutrients that lead to excessive algae, both planktonic and filamentous species. EcoSocks are effective for at least one month after placement. After one month they can be removed and composted, and replaced with a new EcoSock.
All ponds are unique, but generally the following doses will be effective:
0.25 acre – 1 EcoSock per month
0.5 acre – 2 EcoSocks per month
1 acre – 3 EcoSocks per month
1.5 acres – 4 EcoSocks per month
2 acres – 5 EcoSocks per month
3 acres – 6 EcoSocks per month
4 acres – 7 EcoSocks per month
5 acres – 8 EcoSocks per month
