How Do Sewage Treatment Systems Work? And Other Frequently Asked Questions

A vital piece of equipment, in both domestic to industrial settings, the sewage treatment systems works to ensure we’re not inundated with the horrors of effluent through either sight or smell. Through a complex system of filtration, the waste from your toilet is transported to your local rivers and streams in a way that doesn’t harm the environment.

The Process of Sewage Treatment Systems

Typically found in areas that have homes or buildings too far apart to install a large standard system, sewage treatment systems like septic tanks allow for the correct removal of unpleasant waste, without the need for complicated infrastructure.

Once flushed, water passes through into the large primary holding tank ready for filtration. Buried somewhere on your premises, usually under the soil in the backyard, septic tanks come in a variety of sizes to cope with the demands of a number of people in your home/establishment.

With the introduction of compressed air, the waste is separated into liquid and effluent – which then rises to the top – moving into a final chamber. In this chamber, the effluent drops to the bottom, leaving a residual cloudy water.

This water is then able to pass through the tank and out into nearby streams and rivers, filtrated and cleansed enough to avoid any harm to wildlife, including fish. This allows for waste to be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner, something crucial to those living in delicate, rural areas.

What Size Would Be Best for My Home?

The tanks come in an array of different sizes, with the most ideal for a traditional family being between 450mm and 1m for a 4 bed home. However, sewage treatment systems are available for commercial or industrial use, with sizes that will accommodate the usage of up to 300 people available.

The Delta 1 and 2 systems from Clearwater Biotech are ideal for this arrangement, with a low profile that allows for easy installation as customers save on dig – cutting costs and work time.

Where Else Can a Sewage Treatment Plant Be Used?

Whilst, as aforementioned, many sewage treatment systems are used in domestic settings for a handful of people, they can also be branched out for large commercial environments.

Whether it’s a hotel, restaurant, café, bar or gallery, one of the systems can be suited to your individual requirements. At ASAP Septic Tanks, we have been providing sewage treatment solutions for years, ensuring you receive the most seamless removal situation, without any unwanted side effects.

Despite the fact that sewage treatment systems run on electricity, they only, in fact, use the energy of one lightbulb daily running at 230v. This adds to their environmentally-friendly qualities - not to mention the lowered strain on your bank account - making these contraptions ideal as a Clearwater sewage solution.
