For the removal of toilet tar and other deposits from aircraft toilet systems.

Deep Soak is a highly concentrated toilet cleaner for removing tar-like deposits and accumulated paper build up from aircraft toilet tanks and systems.

It is best used as a regular system cleaner for both vacuum and recirculating toilets, however, Deep Soak can also be used to clean aircraft toilet systems that have been removed from aeroplanes for major overhaul.

Why is Deep Soak needed?

As well as normal toilet usage, various fluids are often emptied into aircraft toilets including tea, coffee, milk, alcohol, orange juice etc. The combination of these fluids creates a significant tar build up that is very sticky and difficult to remove by normal methods.

The Advantages of Deep Soak

  • Excellent tar remover & system cleaner
  • Concentrated formula provides powerful performance
  • Improves daily toilet performance that helps to prevent foul odours.
  • Safe on aluminum, steel, magnesium & other aircraft materials
  • Free from harsh chemicals, safe for disposal
  • Complies with AMS1530B documentation
  • Dual Purpose Can be used via the top dose method or from the bowser/toilet cart

Used on a regular basis, this product will clean the aircraft tanks & systems and maintain the efficiency of the filters, pumps, tanks and pipe work.

Use regularly on Vacuum and Recirculating toilets to prevent system blockages and foul odours.

Vacuum Toilets

Regular weekly cleaning programs

  • Add 2 liters of undiluted Deep Soak to each toilet. Flush once then leave toilets for minimum 2 hours.

  • Deep Soak can be used undiluted or mixed with water 50/50.
  • Fill the waste pipe system with Deep Soak back to the toilet bowl.
  • Check aircraft manuals for lock out valves/levels/sequence to avoid overfilling any bowl in the system.

Always use SKYKEM toilet deodorant (sachets or fluids) to minimise the build-up of lime scale and other deposits.

General maintenance every 3 to 4 months- Use Deep Soak as received or dilute 50/50 with water depending on extent of soiling

Component Maintenance

Usage guidelines for any toilet parts removed from the aircraft for deep cleaning or other maintenance work.

Procedure

  • Use Deep Soak at full strength or diluted to a maximum 1 part in 3 parts water.
  • Completely immerse components and allow full soaking until deposits have been penetrated and dissolved. Agitation with a suitable brush will dramatically reduce the soak time required.
