NEW SERVICING REGULATIONS have been introduced for small sewage treatment plants and septic tanks.

KEE offer Maintenances Plans to that ensure that your sewage treatment plants and septic tanks are compliant.

The Environmental Agency in January 2015, introduced a new code of practice making you as a home or business owner fully responsible for the maintenance of your wastewater system. If you have a small sewage plant or a septic tank, by law you must ensure that your system is maintained properly and does not cause pollution.  It must comply with the ‘general binding rules’.  https://www.gov.uk/permits-you-need-for-septic-tanks.

Protect your local environment by following the rules.

Comply with the general binding rules, just follow our recommended steps below:

  • Get expert, specialist advice, call in a KEE Services engineer for an appraisal; your wastewater treatment systems should be serviced regularly and properly maintained. If it isn’t it can be a serious health hazard and pollute the local environment. Your sewage treatment system must be ‘fit-for-purpose’ and comply with industry standard EN 12566.
  • You are also at risk of prosecution if the regulations are not upheld.
  • You are limited to discharge a maximum of 2,000 litres of treated sewage per day into the ground or 5000 litres of treated sewage per day to flowing water.

If you discharge more you will need a permit.

Regularly maintaining your treatment system properly will help prevent pollution, avoid costly repair bills and minimise your energy consumption:

  • Get the sludge emptied regularly
    http://www.keeservices.com/kee-tankering.html.
  • Get it serviced using a KEE engineer and fix any problems immediately
    http://www.keeservices.com/planned-maintenance.html.
  • Regularly check your system for any signs of pollution such as sewage smells, pools of water, sludge, foam etc. If you notice any of these issues please contact KEE to arrange a service visit.  http://www.keeservices.com/book-a-service.html.
  • Don’t flush sanitary items, nappies, ‘flushable’ wipes or similar objects down the toilet as they can block the system.
  • Don’t push fats, oils or chemicals down the drain as they kill bacteria that break-down the waste. KEE offer a biological solution to solve this problem:

  • Use low or no phosphate detergents, which are kinder to the environment.
  • Keep maintenance records to know when to service and empty your system.

KEE SERVICES LIMITED NOW OFFER TANKERING

Residential or commercial, save time and money by having KEE Services desludge and service your treatment plant.

Most of the times your wastewater treatment system will need no intervention from you to do its work. All it will require is the annual desludging and that’s when KEE Services can help.

We provide a timely, guaranteed and professional service to empty your wastewater system. But that’s not all! We also provide advice and support and can help you to keep everything working sweetly.

Waste water from sinks, baths, showers, dishwashers, washing machines and toilets are plumbed into your foul drainage system. This waste arrives at the wastewater treatment system where the solids settle to the bottom and light materials such as grease, suds etc. float to the top. For every litre that flows into the tank a litre must flow out into the drainage field below the septic tank. There is very little biological treatment within a septic tank, although modern package sewage plants do treat the effluent.

If the tank is not emptied on a regular basis solids will be washed into the drainage field and can cause blockages. These blockages are hard to remove and the most common remedy is to install a new drainage field. This can be very expensive compared to regular emptying.
