Sewage Treatment Plant and Waste Water Systems
Click here for the steps to take for a successful, legal installation, here for an explanation of the wastewater treatment process, and here for wastewater treatment systems for flood plains
FILTER SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS - NON-ELECTRIC - For Houses and Small Business Premises - 1 to 5 persons
FILTERPOD non-electric sewage treatment plants are our own design.. They use non-degradable RDX filter media.
THREE STAGE SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS - For Houses, Housing Developments, Small and Large Businesses, Camping Sites, Hotels, Holiday Parks and Holiday Homes - 1 to 5000 persons
FALCON wastewater systems can work down to very low populations, unlike most plants which struggle when underloaded below 50% of what they were designed to do.
DISC plants (rotating biological contactors or RBC's)) are the original package wastewater treatment systems. RBC's are now made by only a few companies as technology has changed.
ACTIVATED SLUDGE SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS - Houses, Small Housing Developments, Small to Medium sized Businesses - 1 to 30 persons
VORTEX™ sewage treatment plants produce some of the cleanest effluent of them all and have an unbeatable ammonia reduction. They have an EN 12566-3 test effluent standard of an amazing 0.4mg/L ammoniacal nitrogen, which is over 40 times lower than the Environment Agency requirements. The VORTEX™ treatment process reduces pollutants by up to 98.9%.
SEPTIC TANK CONVERSION TREATMENT UNITS Add on to existing Septic Tanks. For Houses, Housing Developments and Commercial Use - 1 to 5000 persons
BIOKUBE septic tank conversion treatment unit produces a very high standard of effluent, but is, like the Balmoral SBR, a sequencing batch reactor. The domestic range extends up to 30 persons and the units above 10 persons need a pumping station added to the system.
AQUAPOD Adds on to an existing, or on-site constructed septic tank to provide full sewage treatment. They range from 50 to 5000 persons.
All makes of sewage treatment plants, including Klargester, are serviced by Sapphire Environmental Ltd
Septic Tank or Sewage Treatment System?
If you are considering using a septic tank instead of a sewage treatment unit, make sure that the ground is suitable for a foul water soakaway drainfield, as over 60% of UK sites fail the mandatory tests that allow them to be installed or replaced. Either the Soakaway Trial Site Assessment Hole or Percolation Tests fail these tests, or, the property does not own enough land to enable a soakaway drainfield to be installed. You need a VERY large, treeless garden for a soakaway drainfield!
If your site passes these tests and you have enough land, then, in our opinion, the best septic tank on the market at the moment is the Traditional Design Low Profile Crystal Septic Tank.
