Are you looking to build a new home in southeast Queensland?
You’re likely to be looking at a number of construction companies, such as Metricon, G.J. Gardner, Stroud Homes, Oracle homes, Coral Homes, and Dixion. With all the builders available, choosing the best one can take some time. For some, deciding who to hire can be daunting.
While you’re unsure of which builder to employ, one thing should be clear on your mind – Quality Tanks Krystel Kleer Treatment Systems for domestic wastewater treatment. It’s vital that you have sewage wastewater treatment as a priority, regardless of whether or not your home construction is underway or is about to be built. After all, wastewater treatment is one of the many ways to achieve water efficiency with the ever present drought conditions in Australia. With direct water source being scarce, the next best option is to process wastewater so they can be recycled and reused.
What is wastewater?
This refers to waste produced by a household, which is why it is also commonly called sewage. Because of the sheer volume of wastewater produced daily, it is important for homes to have its own home efficient treatment and disposal system. This is one way to ensure the health and safety of everyone. Imagine what will happen if untreated sewage will pollute the local environment. Diarrhoea and other diseases will cause major problems. Thus the need for a domestic wastewater treatment.
Three types of domestic wastewater
There are three types of untreated sewage that a household generates.
- Grey water comes from the basins, bath, shower, and laundry. It is the most desirable type of wastewater for recycling.
- Black water comes from the toilet. It can only be recycled to a certain extent due to its infectious agents.
- Sewage is a combination of grey water and black water. It has some recycling potentials but should be done properly as it is highly infectious.
With the right wastewater treatment system, the water component can be recycled for use around the home and the garden. This will make your home water-efficient to a certain degree. You will also enjoy several benefits of having wastewater treated.
Advantages of Having Your Own Sewage Wastewater Treatment
- Have recycled wastewater for use around the garden, saving you money than if you were to buy from water companies.
- When your home is self-sufficient, at least where water requirements are concerned, you minimise your impact on the environment.
- Minimise your home’s impact on municipal sewage systems.
- Do your share in conserving and protecting precious stores of groundwater and rainfall stored in dams.
- Along with septic tanks, a wastewater treatment system will eliminate the need for a grease trap at home.
Before you get to enjoy these benefits, it’s important that you consult your local council regarding having your own domestic sewage system. With possible health implications, it is important that you learn about governing regulations and ensure compliance. It would also work to your advantage if you employ a licensed or green plumber and provider of a sewage wastewater treatment system.
Options for Water Storage and Treatment
Quality Tanks not only provides wastewater treatment systems but also options to store rainwater for a wide range of purposes. With water and rainfall being scarce in some parts of Australia, it is best to have provisions for storage and treatment.
Domestic Sewage Treatment plants
Also known as a Home Sewage Treatment Plant (HSTP), this kind of system treats all types of wastewater generated in a household, from grey water to black water. For wastewater treatment, Krystel Kleer is used, an underground water tank built to specifically recycle untreated sewage. It uses a natural process where bacteria is allowed to digest used water and make it re-usable. The tanks are either made of concrete or poly, but all meet a standard of purity that relevant health authorities in Australia approved.
Concrete water tanks
Unlike other types of water tanks, the concrete variety allows storage of large amounts of water. It is usually reinforced and available in different sizes and colours. Concrete water tanks can be built above or below
ground. The choice will depend on the layout of your property and other factors.
Servicing sewage treatment plants
This part of the process is required by State Law and should be done every quarter. Servicing is most crucial with Krystel Kleer Wastewater Treatment Plant since living organisms are used, which require monitoring and periodic attention. Maintenance also comes with servicing, which is essential to ensure that an HSTP performs to the highest standards.
