Treatment plant maintenance is often compared to vehicle maintenance because only a little effort on a regular basis can save a lot of money and significantly prolong the life of your system.
Yearly emptying and inspections of your treatment plant ensures that it is working properly and is kept in a good condition. This saves you from the inconvenience and high costs of blocked pipes, backing up tanks and failed soakaways.
Although very similar maintenance to that of a septic tank, a treatment plant does have some extras costs:
- The pump and parts need servicing and sometimes replacing if a part fails.
- Although a small cost they do need an electric supply to run the treatment plant
