FAQís

Q1.How much will my sewage treatment system cost?

A.
In the first instance please contact us for a free budget estimate with no obligation, or simply a general chat. The cost will depend upon the projected loadings of the site, site condition and hydro-geology.  Once the estimate has been considered a site visit can be arranged to assess access, working area and any other work that may be required. A fixed quotation will then follow.

Q2.How do I ensure the system is within the Environment Agency consent to discharge?

A.
With all our systems we offer a service contract that includes testing the discharge to confirm compliance with the consent.  The service contract covers everything within the plant with the sole exception of the blower(s).

Q3.Is the quality of discharge guaranteed?

A.
As long as the system is serviced and desludged in accordance with our recommendations, and our basic operating procedures are adhered to, the discharge should never fail to meet the consent standard.

Q4.Do I need a Consent to Discharge for my system?

A.
Yes. You will need to apply for a consent to discharge from the Environment Agency. The paperwork is quite straight forward but we are more than happy to help with the technical information required.  Even if the Environment Agency decide a formal application is not required, a letter of confirmation from them should be obtained and put on file.

Q5.How long would the installation take?

A.
This depends on the work required at each site. Including installation and commissioning, anything from 1 week for a small domestic installation to 2 months or more for a large system serving a population equivalent of several hundred.
