All our wastewater treatment systems are made in the UK, at our manufacturing base in Yorkshire.
WTE-Ltd manufactures a range of different sewage treatment plants for all situations, as it is not possible to design a single plant that can cope with all types of properties and uses, efficiently. Some residential situations require a commercial design, as normal domestic systems won't work.
We also produce the only adjustable wastewater treatment plant, which can be turned down for low occupancy residential houses and non-electric sewage treatment plants, which use no electricity.
Sewage treatment plants are the modern replacement for outdated septic tank systems, which, in many cases, are no longer legal under the current septic tank rules. They process both the greywater (baths, showers, dishwashers, washing machine water) and the blackwater from the toilets. The resulting clean water can go to either a drainage field or a ditch or stream. They require a 20% smaller drainage field than the old septic tank.
During the process, up to 97% of the pollutants are digested by the sewage treatment plant. The resulting treated water is clean enough to be discharged into watercourses, without harming the environment. Our new designs also enable Phosphate Reduction and Total Nitrogen Reduction.
Our range includes VORTEX, QUANTUM, APEX, Non-Electric FilterPod and AquaPod sewage treatment plants. Please click on the links or images above for our recommendations. All are made here in the UK.
We also have a detailed FAQ page for the most common questions that we get about off-mains sewage treatment issues.
We are open Monday to Friday, 9am. till 4.00pm, for all your package domestic and commercial sewage treatment plant and septic tank drainage enquiries.
We recommend Sapphire Sewage Treatment System Service Engineers, covering the Midlands and Northern UK for on-going maintenance of wastewater systems. They can also arrange servicing for other regions.
Click Here for the Environment Agency General Binding Rules for small scale wasterwater discharges, under 5 cubic metres, (33 persons). If you comply with these, and your discharge is less than from 14 persons, to a soakaway drainfield, or 34 persons to a watercourse, then you do not require any permit from the Environment Agency. You will require Building Regulations though, as all works fall under Section H2 of the Building Regulations.
