What is a Sewage Treatment Plant?

Simply put, a treatment plant is a way to process effluent for homes disconnected from the main sewer network. As these properties are isolated, they need a reliable and inexpensive way to safely treat their waste. We install, maintain and repair these plants for properties in the local area. 

STPs encourage a natural biodegradation process, much like a septic tank, which allows the liquids and solids to separate. However, an STP has a second chamber for circulating air, which feeds bacteria. These bacteria break down the soiled water, cleaning it and allowing it to be safely released into the environment.

Which Properties Require an STP?

Any property which is unable to connect to the main sewer network requires an STP. We take on projects for a wide variety of different homes and business, often ones which lie off the beaten track. 

Properties that we offer a service for can include:

  • Farmhouses

  • Agricultural Buildings

  • Remote Cottages

  • Holiday Homes

Do STPs Need to be Emptied?

Yes, just like septic tanks, your sewage treatment plant will need emptying. This is because a thick sludge can build up over months or years of usage, clogging up the machinery and causing potentially costly repairs. If you want to avoid being left out of pocket, we recommend having your STP emptied at least once a year. This can vary depending on the specific model, so do consult your installer on the optimum time to have it emptied. We are proud to provide a practical service for clients in Guildford, Slough and the surrounding areas.
