Sewage Treatment For Home

The government introduced a new environmental rule in 2015 that required all septic tanks that discharge into a watercourse to be replaced with a sewage treatment plant. Due to the nature of the waste that goes into a septic tank, the government and Environment Agency have taken these steps to ensure polluted water cannot enter a watercourse. 

Call us now for expert advice and to arrange an estimate. Failure to replace or upgrade your septic tank can lead to hefty fines, so contact us today to see how we can help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Functionally, the two are designed to achieve the same goal, but propose different methods of managing waste. A sewage treatment plan is more environmentally sustainable than a septic tank. As the name suggests, the water is treated to remove contaminates, whereas a septic tank merely separates water from waste. The waste then goes into a holding tank, unlike a treatment plant, where it is carried to a specialist facility. However, septic tanks are not reliant on an electricity source to function, whereas a sewage treatment needs a constant supply. It can be more demanding on your bills and a more costly investment in the long run.

Avoid anything that increases the risk of killing the microorganisms that work to break down your waste. This includes cleaning supplies and antibacterial products like bleach, hand sanitiser and other disinfectants. You should also abstain from non-biodegradable sanitary products and toiletries. As a rule of thumb, don’t put anything in your sewage treatment plant that you wouldn’t flush down your toilet or sink, if you didn’t have one. Food and oil should also be avoided for this reason.

You should empty it at least once a year, depending on the size and model of your sewage treatment system. Some can go 3-5 years before they need to be emptied. This is to prevent a buildup of sludge that can reduce the efficacy of the treatment process. If in doubt, follow the advice of your installer or contact us for more information on the specifics of your treatment system. Once the sludge has been collected, it will undergo further processing to remove dangerous bacteria that could pose a health risk. Then, it is safely disposed of and dealt with.
