What is a sewage treatment plant?

A sewage treatment plant is a place where wastewater is treated to remove contaminants. The plant produces a clean effluent that is non-polluting and can be discharged back into the watercourse via a stream, ditch or other means.

What’s the difference between a sewage treatment plant and a septic tank?

A septic tank is merely a holding tank for effluent and must be emptied regularly; a sewage treatment plant on the other hand can treat wastewater, removing pollutants and producing clean water that is safe to be released back into the watercourse.

How does a sewage treatment plant work?

A sewage treatment plant has mechanical components and processes which break down solid matter. These work to produce a cleaner, non-polluting effluent that can be released into the local watercourse.

Some sewage treatment plants work by using gravity, whilst others use a pump to aerate waste matter. This encourages bacteria to digest organic matter, breaking it down and purifying it.

What if my sewage treatment plant smells?

Your sewage treatment plant should not smell, so if it does this is a tell-tale sign that there could be a problem. Sludge build-up in a system should be removed every year to prevent it becoming biologically overloaded. It is also important to have the system checked and serviced regularly to ensure it is working well.

Can you service my sewage treatment plant?

We are experts in all types of pumps, including those involved in a sewage treatment plant. We can help with servicing, repairs and basic maintenance of your sewage treatment plant, whether in a domestic or a commercial setting.

A sewage treatment plant is one of the most environmentally friendly kind of drainage system, but only if it is working well. If a sewage treatment plant breaks down it can cause unpleasant and dangerous pollution to your property and the local area. Pollution can even end up getting into local watercourses, something taken very seriously by the Environment Agency and rightly so.

Treatment plants have several different moving parts which should all be checked on a regular basis to ensure they are working correctly. As part of a service it is also important to check the contents of the plant to ensure the right level of treatment is being achieved.

Whatever the size of your treatment plant, Active Pump Services can help you to keep it working smoothly.
