Home sewage treatment plant & HSTP system are required by State Law to be serviced on a quarterly basis (4 times per year). Your local Council also enforces these laws. Systems may only be serviced by registered licensed wastewater personal.

HSTP / Home sewage treatment plants SHOULD be serviced for more important reasons other than State law.

Your Krystel Kleer Wastewater Treatment Plant is a living organism. There are trillions of living organisms that make up this complete ecology system. They need monitoring and periodic attention for the well being of your colony. To replace a dead colony is not as simple as going to a pet store and buying a new goldfish. So your service person will tend and monitor your HSTP to give your system the best chances of supplying the environment with the cleanest and best quality water (effluent) that your Krystel Kleer system can produce.

To ensure that our service person can access your property to service your Krystel Kleer Wastewater Treatment Plant we ask that you observe the following items.

1. Arrange to unlock any gates etc. to allow the service e personnel access to your property.
2. Tie up your dog if you have one.
3. Ensure that the service person can safely access your domestic sewage treatment system and irrigation area.
4. DO NOT cover tank system with earth, concrete, pavers or any material.
5. DO NOT prevent quick and easy access to any inspection openings.
6. DO NOT allow roof or surface water to enter any part of the system.
7. If you have any questions or concerns in relation to your home sewage treatment plant performance, please discuss it with your service person whilst on site.

Effluent Testing:

Remove all manhole covers and allow the treatment plant to breath for a few minutes.

Take grab samples of mixed liquor using a 1 to 2 litre sampling jar attached to a rod, samples are to be taken from Aeration chamber. Should Influent samples be required take a grab sample from the primary tank next to the outlet.
Make sure that that the samples taken not skimmed from the surface and that the walls are not scraped while sampling.

Aeration Pump:

The Thomas L P – 80H Aeration Pump requires servicing every 3 months.

Remove the top air cleaner cover, then remove the filter pad from the unit and clean the dust from the pad by shaking. Re assemble the top cover, check hose connections and turn pump on.

Effluent Disposal Pump:

The Davey D25A or D42A requires very little maintenance however when the treatment plant is being serviced it is recommended that the pump be with drawn from the treatment plant and washed by hose. Wash the pump over the primary tank and re-fit checking to make sure that the float arm is free to travel up and down without fouling on the side of the pump out chamber.
General:

Place Chlorine Tablets into chlorine holders.

Check high water alarm on pump and low air alarm to ensure that they both work.
