Microbes starts breaking down organic waste immediately Microbes require several re-applications to effectively begin breaking down grease
Saves shipping and warehouse costs (8 oz of material makes 8 gallons) Heavy, ready-to-use quarts are bulky and costly to handle
Convenient to carry onto accounts – a small 8 ounce bottle can fit into carry case and makes 32 quarts of material If you need more than 1 quart, must go back to truck when you run out.
Cuts callbacks by eliminating fruit fly breeding sites before your eyes Requires numerous visits and re-applications  (If there are no bleach or pesticides in area)
Includes fragrance/wetting agent which is absorbed into porous materials. Wetting agent/fragrance carries microbes into deepest points of odor source (leaving a long-lasting fresh smell). Have odor-masking agent which is temporary (DF 5000 has no fragrance at all)
Cuts labor costs – no need to remove drain cover, only seconds to spray foam Can’t reach many areas with squirt bottle, must reapply, must remove drain covers
