Septic tanks and package sewage treatment plant servicing should to be done regularly and in accordance with the manufacturers guidance.
The manufacturer (Klargester, WTE – Vortex, Matrix Clenviro, Marsh, Entec, Conder etc) will have a recommend service interval. Usually at least every 12 months for a domestic property and for some commercial installations as frequently as every 3 months.
The reason why treatment plants need servicing is because not all the matter that goes through the tank is broken down by the bacteria and bugs. Over time this sludge builds up and reduces the capacity of the tank and the time that the waste water spends in the treatment plant. This reduces the quality of the discharged waste water and could cause pollution of the watercourse or reduce the lifetime of a discharge field.
There are a variety of treatment plants on the market some have air blowers to provide the biomass with air, others use a submersible pump that draws air in through the pipework and others use a more mechanical means i.e. a motor that drives a rotating disc. Whatever system you have installed we can provide you a service plan that meets your needs and schedule with a tank emptier to unsure the treatment plant is emptied as planned. Providing you with a service report on completion.
Any necessary repairs will be noted on the report. We can provide a written quotation so the costs are known before any works are done.
