Sewage Treatment Plants | Septic Tank Conversion
High quality septic tank conversions | sewage treatment plants with a difference
The effluent from a Biokube sewage treatment plant and septic tank conversion system is guaranteed, even when using an existing septic tank and the system is very different to other sewage treatment plants on the market. The sewage effluent flow rate is controlled to even out peaks and troughs throughout the day. Watch BioKube VENUS sewage treatment plants in action
The BioKube sewage treatment plant | septic tank conversion - Effluent Quality Guaranteed:
- Certified and tested to European Standard BS EN 12566
- Can be added to an existing septic tank to purify the effluent prior to discharge to a watercourse or ditch
- The Biokube has an EN 12566 Certificate for septic tank conversion. The 'in-tank' septic tank conversions do not qualify for Environment Agency Exemption Certificates.
- Fully compliant with UK Septic Tank and Sewage Treatment Plant Building Regulations Part H2
- Wastewater effluent quality guaranteed, even when using an existing septic tank
- In house septic tank conversion electronic alarm monitoring
- Discharge to watercourse or soakaway using your existing septic tank
- Various sizes of domestic sewage treatment plant models in the range. (Single & multiple houses)
- Commercial sewage treatment plant and septic tank conversions built to order
Most manufacturers systems will satisfy all of the above. Biokube sewage treatment plants are different.
What are the differences?. Surely all treatment systems that are certified to the new European standard BS EN 12566 treat sewage the same? Surely all septic tank conversion units have been tested?- not quite:
- Almost all septic tank conversion systems have NEVER been tested at all and are not acceptable to the Environment Agency. In-Tank septic tank conversions are not acceptable and will not get a Permit from the Environment Agency.
- The BIG difference between the Biokube sewage treatment plant system and others on the market is our sewage treatment plant and septic tank conversion guarantee. We are the only company selling package wastewater treatment plants that guarantee that the effluent coming out of the system will meet your septic tank or sewage discharge consent, even from an existing septic tank (Some conditions apply)
- Biokube sewage treatment plants clean sewage to an "Elite Standard" of less than 10mg/l BOD, less than 15 mg/l Suspended Solids and less than 5 mg/l ammonia, guaranteed. Check with other suppliers and they will quote a 20:30 level of treatment as standard. (And then it will only meet it a percentage of the time.) The elite level of treatment from our system enables the water to be re-used for garden drip irrigation if required.
- We offer phosphorous removal as an option on our treatment plants. If you intend discharging to a pond you will want to reduce phosphorous to stop algal blooms in hot summer weather.
- The Biokube treatment system uses a separate settlement tank or existing septic tank, so it does not have problems with blockages due to tampons, wet wipes, etc. Other manufacturers will tell you that the offending item should not have been put into the toilet.
- The Biokube processes sewage using a unique timed batch system. This means that sewage is processed 24hrs per day. Most other systems only treat the sewage as it arrives in the tank.
- The Biokube has a patented recycling system to remove smells. The "Bad Egg" septic tank smell will not occur in a Biokube system.
- Installing one of our wastewater treatment systems is low risk, high gain. We might not be the cheapest system on the market, but our guarantee means that you get peace of mind that at the end of the day, your plant will work to the highest standard and not pollute the environment. All we ask is that you get the settlement tank or septic tank emptied and the plant serviced once a year. Very simple and straight forward.
The Biokube sewage treatment plant is the answer. We guarantee it.
Ask our competitors these questions about their septic tank conversion or wastewater treatment systems:
- Will you guarantee that the quality of the effluent coming out of the sewage treatment system will meet our discharge consent?
- Does your septic tank conversion have an EN 12566 Certificate?
- Will your septic tank conversion treat to less than 5mg/l ammonia?
- Can your sewage treatment plant system remove phosphorous?
- Can I add your plant to my existing septic tank?
- How long is your tank warranty?
- Will your sewage treatment plant or septic tank conversion block up if strange things are put down the toilet, nappies, towels etc.?
- Who maintains and services your plants?
We think you will be surprised at the answers.
The Biokube system can be added to existing septic tanks, as a replacement for a failing septic tank soakaway, or installed as a completely new sewage treatment system. The water that is produced can be discharged directly to a watercourse, (with Environmental Agency / SEPA consent.)
Please be aware that not all package sewage treatment systems treat sewage to the same degree. The Biokube system is very effective at treating sewage, often better than required by most discharge consents. They are not all certified to BS EN 12566 either. Make sure you insist that the system you are purchasing is certified and tested to this new European Standard.
