This 9 population sewage treatment plant is suitable for granular installations - its solid structure avoids the need for using large amounts of concrete.
Average running cost only £8 Per Month
Included audible and visual alarm system.
This sewage treatment system was adopted to fulfil a need to provide exceptional wastewater treatment on sites that are unsuitable for a standard septic tank. With the introduction of BS Standards EN12566-3, only treatment systems that have received European Certification can be installed.
The waste is treated through a mechanical aeration process. The level of treatment achieved enables the effluent to be discharged into a watercourse subject to receiving the relevant consent to discharge from the local regulatory bodies such as the Environment Agency for England and Wales, Scottish Environment Agency for Scotland and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency for Northern Ireland.
Tricel was awarded the CE mark after successfully completing 9 months of rigorous testing by the certified laboratory PIA Gmbh Testing Institute for Wastewater Technology in Aachen, Germany.
Sewage Treatment Plant Properly Registered?
Under the new EPP2 regulations, only equipment with the EN12566-3 2005 Certification is allowed to register for the Discharge Permit or Exemption now required by the Environment Agency for sewage treatment plants not already registered with the Environment Agency for 'Consent to discharge'.
For more important information on the relevant legislation and how this may affect you please take a look at our Sewage Disposal Legislation page.

About Sewage Treatment Plants
Sewage treatment plants are rapidly becoming the non-mains drainage replacement of choice for septic tank owners. This doesn't surprise us since they represent a better environmental and durable response to the challenge of not being connected to mains drainage.
Sewage Treatment Plants harness the process of aerobic digestion of bacteria - the most common form of life on the planet. As solid matter settles it gets decomposed by oxygen (hence aerobic) fed bacteria – the coarser solids need longer to be worked on and sludge of settled solids accumulates inside the plant, which will need removing at intervals (usually annually) but dependent upon the specific size and type of plant.
Largely unseen, quiet and watertight these subterranean units receive all the sewage water and waste from your home or business. They are usually made from glass reinforced plastic (GRP) so they're durable and robust. At the end of the bacterial digestion process is an effluent which is surprisingly clean and can be discharged into the ground (soakaway) or a nearby watercourse. This of course is subject to legislation and we recommend you take some time to understand the regulations that are involved.
Tricel® is a leading manufacturer of wastewater treatment systems, septic tanks, pumping stations and rainwater harvesting tanks in the UK. Tricel believes that increasing demands on water due to climate change makes it vital for everyone to plan for the future, and that rain water harvesting is an effective solution in alleviating these pressures. We share this vision and confidently supply Tricel rainwater harvesting products which feature leaf filter, calmed inlet and pump (if needed) plus holding tank, outlet and overflow.
