Q: In what size packages are BacKrete® products sold?
A: BacKrete® Eco-Friendly and Waterless Concrete Cleaner is available in individual 16lb. pails, and can be shipped in pallets of 48 pails. BacKrete® Food Grease Digester is sold by the case, each case containing six 1-quart bottles and one foaming sprayer.

Q: How long can I store the powdered BacKrete® Eco-Friendly and Waterless Concrete Cleaner?
A: The official answer is (12) months from date of purchase in normal storage. However, the bacteria can lay dormant up to 2 years.  So even if the lid were opened the product would still be good.  But excessive heat, at 160 degrees or greater will kill the bacteria. Freezing temperature will hold the bacteria dormant, but it will revive once it warms up. However, the powder will still absorb at most any temperature.  For the bacteria to flourish, they need a hydrocarbon food source, like diesel fuel, moderate temperature 50- 100 degrees, and moisture.
