New Rules For Using Septic Tanks & Small Sewage Treatment Plants

As of January 2015, you, as a homeowner, are now responsible for your choice, installation and maintenance of your wastewater system under a new code of practice introduced by the Environment Agency. You have a legal responsibility to minimise the impact of your sewage waste if you manage it within the bounds of your property e.g. with a septic tank or sewage treatment plant.

How to follow the rules and protect your local environment

  • We strongly advise you always get expert, specialist advice when it comes to sewage waste treatment; the effluent has the potential to be both a serious health hazard and pollute the local environment if it is not properly managed. You are also at risk of prosecution if the regulations are not upheld.
  • Although you no longer need to register a small domestic tank or keep five year maintenance records, your septic tank or sewage treatment plant must still be fit for purpose, comply with industry standard EN 12566, and be properly sized, installed, and maintained by an authorised person [ie. a professionally qualified installer].
  • You are limited to discharging a maximum of 2,000 litres of treated sewage per day into the ground or 5,000 litres of treated sewage per day to flowing water. If you discharge more you will need a permit.
  • Never neglect your wastewater system; out of sight is not out of mind! Like boilers and cars, septic tanks and sewage treatment plants need to be regularly serviced to operate efficiently.
  • If you have a septic tank that discharges directly to a surface water you will need to replace or upgrade your treatment system by 1 January 2020, or when you sell your property if before this date.

Trust the experts 

It is now more important than ever to take care when it comes to your choice of tank. At Septic Tank Supplies we can offer the following;
  • initial consultation/assessment of needs
  • premium products
  • free site inspection
  • installation by our professional accredited installers
  • reliable and cost effective
  • after-sales service

Despite their high efficiency rating, treatment plants don’t cost significantly more to buy and install than a septic tank and require a smaller drainage field while maintenance and running costs are relatively low. However minor the impact on the environment, any serious problem caused by a failed septic tank or sewage treatment plant can have a major impact on the finances of the system’s owner.
Septic tanks and sewage treatment plants should never be considered a fit and forget solution – regulations require that they are maintained and emptied regularly, so it is important to trust professional service team to look after your wastewater system.

Septic Tanks

Septic Tanks

The most popular septic tank in the United Kingdom to date is the onion shape septic tank.

The onion shape septic tank has become the most popular due to it being highly durable and robust.
septic tank is a storage tank which holds and retains all the solid waste & passes on the untreated waste water to a soak away/drainage field.
You are not permitted to drain directly from a septic tank into a watercourse/ditch. You would need to install a sewage treatment plant.
A septic tank works by allowing the solids to settle to the bottom and the effluent to flow out. The outflow from the septic tank usually requires further treatment and this is achieved by soaking it away into the ground, where bacteria in the soil completes the sewage treatment process.
A septic tank will have some kind of baffle to separate the sludge build up from the effluent leaving the septic tank through the outlet.
At Septic Tank Supplies we are proud to offer our customers the best quality products at the cheapest prices found anywhere in the United Kingdom, which make our customers keep coming back.
In the very rare case if you find the same product cheaper else were we will try our best to price match if not better.
As we are a family run business rather than a franchise, we can maintain competitive pricing on all our products across the board – Because of this we are one of the largest septic tank suppliers in the UK.
We offer market leading brands of septic tanks such as - Klargester, Clearwater, Marsh, Anua and Conder

Clearwater Sewage Treatment Plant

The Clearwater sewage treatment plant uses an aeration chamber rather than a rotating disc as in the Klargester BioDisc system, so no moving internal parts.
Benefits:
  • High performance rating.
  • Can be discharged directly to a watercourse.
  • Free from mechanical or electrical components within the unit - very low maintenance and running costs.
  • Minimal visual impact on surroundings - low level cover with child safe locks.
  • Controlled ventilation.
  • Annual emptying.
Process:
Three distinct process stages take place within the single tank:
  • First, coarse solids are filtered and retained for gradual breakdown.
  • Then the resulting liquid is continuously distributed over a plastic suspended filter by an integral lift, powered by a remotely sited blower.
  • Finally, the solids are allowed to settle and, under normal domestic conditions, treated water of 20mg/l BOD, 30mg/l S.S., 20mg/l Ammonia can be achieved.
