Servicing and Maintenance of Sewage Treatment Plants

A sewage treatment plant is a modern version of a septic tank, required by building regulations when new properties have been constructed.  The primary tank has a compressor pump to continuously aerate the sewage and provide full treatment to crude sewage in normal domestic installations.  Some units have the ability to pump the treated water to approved disposal points when natural inverts are not available.  Sewage treatment plants must still be emptied of solid waste at least once a year or as per manufacturer's guidelines.

Bates Environmental Ltd recommends that your treatment plant also be serviced on a yearly basis, since if you do encounter a problem with the electrics, for example, it is likely to cause other more expensive knock-on effects, such as the pump burning out.  If a sewage treatment plant is serviced every year, the parts can be checked, replaced if worn, and oiled or greased so that the optimum working state is maintained.  This is also part of the Environment Agency Guidelines.
