Can I service my own sewage treatment plant or do I need a professional?

Updated: Jan 23

Do you own a sewage treatment plant but you’re not sure what the best way to keep it maintained is? Read on to find out the benefits of servicing your sewage system.

The maintenance and servicing of a sewage treatment plant is a complex process that requires technical knowledge and experience. It is highly recommended to hire a professional to avoid potential complications.

A professional will have the necessary expertise and equipment to perform routine maintenance, diagnose any issues that may arise, and provide repairs or replacement of parts as needed. Additionally, they can help you understand the correct compliance with regulations, guidelines and requirements to ensure the proper operation of the treatment plant.

It's also important to note that in some cases, attempting to service your own sewage treatment plant could lead to personal injury or damage to the equipment. Therefore, it's absolutely safer and more efficient to leave the maintenance and servicing to professionals.

Having you sewage system regularly serviced also ensures that your manufacturers warranty is upheld. This provides further protection against breakdowns and ongoing maintenance.

In addition, the full report completed by our engineers also acts as proof of compliance to local government. It proves that your sewage system is regulation compliant, and is not polluting into the local water course.

We recommend having your sewage treatment plant serviced every six to twelve months to ensure optimum use.

What are the advantages of having your sewage treatment plant serviced by a professional?

  • Efficient operation: Regular servicing of a sewage treatment plant helps ensure that it is functioning at maximum efficiency. This can reduce the risk of breakdowns, backups, and other issues that can disrupt the treatment process and cause sewage to overflow (which can be damaging to the environment and also produce a terrible smell.)

  • Cost savings: Proper maintenance can help prevent the need for costly repairs or replacement of equipment. Our service engineers have years worth of experience, and they have a comprehensive understanding of the best ways to look after your sewage treatment plant. By catching potential issues early, our professionals can address them before they become major problems.

  • Compliance with regulations: It is important to adhere to the correct regulations and guidelines for the operation of sewage treatment plants. Regular servicing can help ensure that your plant is in compliance with these regulations, which can help you avoid fines or other penalties. Having your sewage treatment plant serviced regularly also ensures that your warranty remains valid, should you need to use it.

  • Health and safety: Sewage treatment plants can contain hazardous materials and pose health and safety risks to those who work with them. Having a professional service your plant can help reduce these risks and ensure that the treatment plant is operating safely.

  • Longevity: Proper maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your sewage treatment plant. This can help you get the most out of your investment and avoid the need for premature replacement.

  • Helping the environment: Having your sewage treatment plant serviced helps to prevent untreated wastewater from overflowing onto the land. Untreated wastewater from failing sewage systems can contaminate nearby wells, groundwater, drinking water sources, and transmit diseases.
