A Sewage treatment plant is a large investment which must be maintained correctly in order to maximise the lifespan of the plant and equipment.
CountyClean are experts in the care and maintenance of sewage treatment plants and have compiled a list of important ‘do’s and don’ts’ when it comes to looking after your system.
DO try to spread your clothes washing throughout the week
DO follow the manufacturers recommended maintenance and desludging for your sewage treatment plant. If you are unsure on your manufacturers recommendations, we work with a variety of sewage treatment plant manufacturers and can offer advice and guidance on cleaning and maintenance.
DO use liquids (not powders) in washing machines and dishwashers. Powders can easily clump together and cause blockages.
DO stick to the same washing, dishwasher and other cleaning products as the plant bacteria will work more efficiently
DO compost organic food waste or use your council’s bio-degradable waste recycling (if available)
DON’T pour FOG (fat’s, oil and grease) down the drains where avoidable. The FOG can coat and therefore damage the treatment plant.
DON’T tip medicine, mouthwash or any other chemicals down the drains as the will damage the biological treatment process.
DON’T pour large amounts of bleach or washing detergents down the toilet or drains
DON’T pour milk down the sink as it can strip the oxygen out of the biozone in the treatment plant
DON’T pour DIY products (e.g. paints, thinners or white spirit) down the drains
By following the above advice, having regular inspections and maintenance, you can ensure that your system will be performing at an optimal level.
A sewage treatment plant is a living, breathing collection of organisms that needs to be treated well to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently. The misuse of your unit can lead to expensive repair costs in the future.
