All over the world, it is a common practice to pump huge amounts of wastewater into streams, rivers, and oceans. This has an extremely negative effect on the environment, fisheries, and animals. This is because wastewater is contaminated water and can spread viruses and other diseases through water surfaces. So, installing a septic treatment plant is the solution. The system will treat the sewage before discharging it into the environment, thus protecting it and minimising the spread of diseases.
However, when installing a septic treatment plant, cost is often a main concern. To help you better understand, we will explain in detail what it involves and the cost.
Septic treatment plant costs vary according to multiple parameters. First, it depends on the size of the tank in terms of person equivalent (PE). PE calculations are based on the number of washrooms your home has from a baseline of three. For instance, if you have three washrooms, you will need a 5PE system and for every additional washroom, you will need to add 1PE. If you need help calculating the number of PE for your home, feel free to reach out to us with this contact form, we’d love to help!
The other factors of septic treatment plant cost include additional add-ons you wish to include such as extra ventilation. The cost also depends on the model you purchase. Often, cheaper units are the most expensive to maintain and fix.
The installation cost of a septic treatment plant depends on the site conditions and your installer. Also, when installing a new septic treatment plant, you will require planning permission and get building regulations approval, and this will usually require application fees. If your home is located on high groundwater conditions, the installation will require a lot of concrete which leads to an increase in overall installation costs. Additionally, the installation of an electrical system will require an electrical supply, which can only be done by an electrician who will charge a fee.
