Basic Septic Tanks only partially treat sewage and discharge effluent of low quality. Many authorities in the UK & Ireland prohibit their use.
More advanced products, like Klargester SuperSeptic, offer a much higher level of effluent quality, but in all instances a Sewage Treatment
Plant should be considered as the first option.
Septic Tanks may be installed (subject to consent) in applications where:
- Soil is of suitable porosity.
- Installation complies with Building Regulations (Approved Document H).
- The installation will not contaminate any ditch, stream or other watercourse.
What products are available?
If you are not connected to mains drainage you have three options.
Alpha and Beta+ Range
The Klargester Alpha and Klargester Beta+ range of Septic Tanks only provides settlement for sewage solids. The liquid overflow requires
further biological treatment in a suitably designed, correctly situated drainage field.
A Klargester SuperSeptic tank pumps air (including oxygen) through sewage which substantially reduces the pollution content
of the overflow.
Sewage Treatment Plant
A full Sewage Treatment Plant with integral biological treatment technology produces far superior treated effluent - see our
Klargester BioDisc® and Biotec™ range.
Any product installation is dependent on obtaining regulatory approvals.
