Does not eliminate oudorsDoes not eliminate oudors in anyway whatsoever. Used this product for 2 weeks and the smell is consistent. I do not have blockages just and ouder. This product is a total waste of money and time. Show details
Worked for me!My bathroom basin was draining very, very slowly. I'm talking 12 hours to drain away the water from a simple hand washing. I tried a plunger with no result.
I picked this up from Coles and was hoping for a good result for the $20+ cost compared to almost half that for Draino.
I used a 20g dose, pouring it down the basin drain, then filled the basin with hot water. The pellets all came back up, so I pushed them back to the drain and walked away.
I returned 30 min later and was totally shocked to see the water had completely drained away! Show details
can i give a minus 15 stars? used this and it BLOCKED my drains do not buybought some
its labelling and directions need work
no indication of how much water needed to soak the pellets
so i guessed. it had a porridge like consistency and i had no idea if this was right or not since the packaging and directions give no indication what consistency jt needs to be to pour it down your sink
so i put it in the sink and its turned my drains that had about 70% free flow to a 95-99% complete blockage
higgly reccomend do NOT buy this product
on the label it says its an unblocker
it blocks your drains
i called the 1800 number
spoke to Hugh. he was polite but unhelpful. Show details
Toilet blockage fixedThank you ACTIZYME you saved me$400.00. My toilet was blocked but after using ACTIZYME 4 times my toilet is fixed. I highly recommend this product if you have any toilet or drainage issues. Show details
Clears drainsMy sink was not clogged but had an odour.It did not help clean the drain.It did not remove the odour in drain.It formed a glug similar to putty and that blocked my drain.For 21.00 and a product of Woolworths very very disappointing. Show details
Be patientI had a very blocked vanity sink for a couple of weeks. Water would build up and only very slowly drain. I assumed a combination of hair and my 4yo vomited in there not long before blockage occured. Didn't want to use a caustic product so thought I would try this. First night I was overenthusiastic and put in 2 tablespoons of the dry pellets and the sink waa even more clogged the next morning. The next night I used just one spoon and soaked for 30 mins before dosing sink just before bed. Next morning sink was draining much better and by the eve... Read moreningalmost back to normal. Have just dosed again tonight and hoping it continues working. It is definitely a slow and patient approach. Don't expect improvement overnight. But worth the wait for a non-toxic and environmentally friendly product.
Don't buy. Waste of moneyMy sink was clogged but not to badly. This was the only drain cleaner product sold in woolies for $21 so I bought it to lazy to go to bunnings just for drain cleaner and thought this would work. It did help unclog the drain for acouple days but then started clogging again. So I used this again and it worked again for acouple days and clogged again, now its only soapy water and toothpaste going down this sink drain no hair or anything else clog worthy and the 3rd time I used it has just seemed to clog my sink all the way up. Their is hardly any drainage...for the price I paid I expected ALOT better. Ended up going to bunnings for a 2l $8 bottle of drain cleaner and what do you know its cleared the drain right up.

You might as well use cementThis product sat in my drain and formed a clog similar to clumping cat litter. The result was an even more clogged drain. My husband had to get a garden hose to force it through. When he pulled the hose out it was stuffed with this product similarly to a clogged artery. Not just a waste of money, but further clogging your pipes. Show details
Effective and safe to useA bathroom sink drain at home was completely blocked with hair and soap scum. It was also smelling foul and because it was completely blocked, I thought I'd better investigate exactly where the blockage was. I started by removing the U-bend and found that the blockage was not there, but in the sink outlet itself (just below the grate in the plug hole). I thought that it was important for the product to be in direct contact with the gunge blocking the sink plug hole, so I bought a blanking cap from Bunnings, Philmac 1 - 1 2" BSP Pipe Cap, Bunnin... Read moregs code 90490500, for $3.55 and blanked off the sink outlet. Note: I had to apply some plumber's Teflon tape to the thread to make it watertight. I soaked 10g of the pellets to expand in a small cup of water for 1/2hr and then poured it in, left it for 24 hours and then removed the blanking cap with a bucket underneath. A lump of the soap scum gunge came out with the liquid I had poured in, and the remaining gunge was very soft and able to be poked through the sink plug hole with a screwdriver into the bucket below. I replaced the U-bend and the sink is now back in action. I would certainly recommend the Actizyme pellets, and I suspect that regular (every few months) simple application down the plug hole will prevent the build-up of gunge in the first place, without having to resort to removing the U-bend. All in all, I'm very pleased with the product, particularly because it's effective, it's safe to use and it's safe for the environment.
Takes its time, but does the jobI used this on a blocked toilet. Took my property manager a few days to sort a plumber, but by the time they booked one, it had worked! Took about 4 days of just letting it sit, then completely unblocked the toilet. Be patient and give it time. If you want something that works immediately, this is not the product for you.

Does not meet its claimclaims to clear blocked drains - it does not. Even with the patience and multiple treatments recommended, the pellets just became a gluey blob that kept the drain blocked. If a drain is blocked, I need and want it cleared fairly quickly, say 20-60 minutes. Other products are far more effective. Actizyme does not work. Show details
Does not meet its claimIt claims to clear blocked drains. it does not. the pellets turn into a gluey blob which block the dry even more. It is ridiculous to ask people to be patient. If I have a blocked drain I need and want it to be cleared. other products work properly with drains cleared within 20 to 60 minutes. Actizyme does not work Show details
do not buy it's crap!I tossed between the other product for 7 bucks and this one for 21 bucks. I thought oh ok 21 bucks must be sensational. 3 days the pellets haven't melted and my drain is clogged even more. So, I went out and bought the other 7 buck products which I wish I had of done in the first place and didn't even take 20 seconds. Don't waste your money! Show details
Definitely works!This product really does work. If your drains are really clogged it could take a couple of treatments so you'll need be a bit patient at first. I was skeptical at first but now It's the only drain cleaner I would use. I like that it's safe for kids, pets and the environment! Every once in a while I put a handful in my sinks and toilets to keep them flowing freely.
Best thing so farI saw the other reviews but honestly it worked for me and today saved my life again. If you put them properly and wait for atleast 30 mins i will work 100% Show details
Questions & Answers
Hi, we have a outhouse toilet in the bush. Can this work to dissolve human waste? We are looking for a natural product. Thank you.
If you have an old school dunny with a collection bucket, should use sawdust to contain smells and absorb liquid. When full, bury away from water sources. If it is a composting toilet or drop toilet, ... Read moreyou should be supplying sufficient bacteria yourself (if you get my meaning), and smells are prevented by sufficient airflow to ensure aerobic decomposition or otherwise remove smells (which are caused by anaerobic bacteria). Of course, a sufficient chimney for a drop toilet would work to vent smells to the atmosphere above the user's height. I don't think the enzymes would be helpful as the bacteria should be supplying sufficient.

Is this product suitable to stop odors in a 1000 litre Greywater tank where the water is stored from bathroom, laundry and kitchen and then used for watering the garden? Thamks
I wouldn’t recommend this product after the bad experience I had when I tried to unblock the vanity sink, it clogged it worse and the smell was so bad and the end I had to call the handyman to undo the pipe to clear it.
