There are several reasons why people may opt to use a residential sewage treatment system. The first is simply that they may be an area that is too close to a body of water and therefore a septic tank would be a risk to the local environment. It may also be the soil conditions in the local area are not appropriate. Whatever the reason it is important to make sure you get the right one.

Why you might need one

In simple terms the naturally occurring bacteria works more effectively in a self contained sewage treatment system then it does in a septic tank. There are a wide array of manufacturers and all produce systems of varying sizes that can be appropriate for a number of different households depending on the size of their location, the amount of waste produced and the type of waste produced.

Things to consider

There are a few factors you ought to consider before you purchase any form of waste treatment system-

  • Certification- A company selling waste treatment systems in the UK has to be type tested and CE certified (this should be specified in any product description, specification or review so check this before you order it!)
  • Effectiveness- The system should be appropriate for the property. Ultimately you want to be sure that the waste liquid has been properly treated and is safe to be disposed of (ideally you should have some kind of water course or area you can dispose of treated liquids).
  • Installation- While having the right kind of equipment is vital you also have to check that the system has been properly installed by a certified contractor. Often this will require someone who has been licensed by the local environment agency. This is vital because it is in both your interest and the people of your local area to ensure any systems are carefully and safely installed.
  • Professional advice- Ideally you don’t just want something that ticks boxes, a professional should also guide you as to what is the most effective waste treatment method for your particular circumstances.
