Maintaining your sewage treatment plant
Regularly maintaining your sewage treatment plant helps to prevent any potential problems for the system.
We recommend that you empty your sewage treatment plant at least every six to twelve months to remove solids that accumulate over time. Septiclean has been emptying Sewage Treatment plants for over 20 years for customers who want a professional service.
How do sewage treatment plants work?
Sewage treatment plants work in similar way to a septic tank; mechanical components provide a process which breaks down solids to provide a more environmentally friendly effluent. Wastewater and sewage are fed into the primary settlement tank where the liquid and solids separate, the liquid then flows into a biozone chamber, whose pump generates the waste and produces good bacteria.
The final chamber known as the humus chamber can produce effluent 95% cleaner and can discharge into local watercourses, with the consent of the Environment Agency. There is a large variety of different sewage treatment on the market designed for very different applications and installations.
