Sewage treatment plants are backed by the Environment Agency, as they partially treat any waste. The process involves aeration, which partially cleans the waste. This allows it to be disposed of with minimal impact on the environment.

Common Sewage Treatment Plant Problems

Common Sewage Treatment Plant Problems

There are a few common problems in your sewage systems that are important to look out for. The sewage treatment plant is an approved alternative to mains sewerage. 

Our specialist engineers offer an efficient service, along with expert advice, to ensure you get the repairs and maintenance tips you need. If you are experiencing any of the issues listed below, please call us today.

Unpleasant Odours 

 Unpleasant odours are easy to spot and could be caused by your pipes not working correctly. If the smell is coming from your sewage treatment plant, you may have a blockage in your pipes caused by chemicals in your drains, and you will need to call us as soon as possible. 

Pump Stops and Starts 

If your pumps keep stopping and starting, then they could need repairing. This could be caused by several factors, including the fact that your sewage treatment system isn't being used, and it has dried up, or it could be clogged. 

Too Much Effluent (Overloading) 

If you overload your sewage treatment plant, this will cause your septic tanks to have to work too hard, resulting in damage that can't be repaired and problems with your wastewater. You will need this to be repaired as soon as possible, which is why it is so important to control the amount going into your sewage treatment plant, as it could lead to fines or other legal proceedings. 

Your Alarm is Sounding 

 All sewage treatment plants are fitted with an alarm, which will make a noise if a problem is detected with your pumps or blower. This will ensure that you know about the problem and get a repair booked as soon as possible. 

Lack of maintenance 

It is so important to have your sewage treatment systems regularly maintained to ensure there are no issues. This reduces the risk of needing full replacements, which would cost a lot more. We recommend getting your sewage systems and septic tanks serviced at least every 2 years.

Soakaway problems 

 Soakaway systems are used to distribute the waste and sewage into the ground effectively. Problems with these can lead to your whole sewage system not working properly, so if you are based in Surrey, East Sussex, you need to contact us today! We are approved engineers for your commercial or domestic property.   

Sewage pump or blower failing to turn on 

 If your sewage pump cannot turn on or the blower is failing, this may lead to your entire system needing replacing. This could be caused by problems with the electricity supply, equipment overheating or your breaker tripping. You should be notified by the alarm if these problems occur, so give us a call straight away to handle the repairs. 

The blower operating but not pumping air 

 This will cause the bacteria to die off that break down your waste, which will lower your drainage system's overall efficiency. You will need an expert to fix this, so please give us a call today as it could be a blockage in the filter or physical damage with the blower. 

Blower stops and starts erratically 

 If the blower stops and starts erratically, then it could be overheating. If this is the case, you will need an engineer to come out and solve the problem for you. 

Pump operating but does not deliver effluent

If the pump in your drainage system is still working as normal, but it isn't producing any waste, you could have a blockage, usually caused by objects you shouldn't put down your drains. 

How Often Does a Treatment Plant Require Servicing?

It would help if you had your treatment plant serviced at least every 2 years to ensure everything is working correctly. This will lower the risk of having expensive repair bills and needing full replacements. It will also help keep up with the maintenance, which will prolong your treatment plant's life span. 

What is Included in a Treatment Plant Service? 

Here is a list of inspections that are included in a treatment plant service:  

  •  Inspect every single champer in the plant to see if there is any visible damage 
  • Inspect the air system, along with the blowers and diffusers 
  • Inspect all the seals on the slides and the chamber in the air blower 
  • Inspect the ventilation system
