CORRECT SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR SEWAGE TREATMENT SYSTEMS ARE INSISTED UPON BY THE ENVIRONMENT AGENCY AND FORM A CONDITION OF YOUR DISCHARGE PERMIT.
You will also need to provide evidence of regular maintenance when selling your property or in the event of an insurance claim for broken units.
Whatever system you have installed it will require regular servicing by a trained engineer and in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. Systems that are not serviced regularly POLLUTE our streams and rivers and often lead to prosecution by the Environment Agency. Most systems require a minimum of 1 service visit per year.
If you have a sewage treatment plant, pump station or septic tank that treats and removes the wastewater produced at your property you will require regular maintenance visits in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines to ensure that everything is working properly and you comply with environmental agency guidelines for discharge.
