RA Dalton Success Stories
RA Dalton Ltd are the Klargester number one accredited installer covering the whole of the UK.
Out with the old – in with the new Klargester Bioficient 3.
In September 2020, our Contracts Manager Alan Law attended a property near Skegness which has an old twin chamber Victorian Cess pit that had over the course of time converted the vessel to a Septic tank. The tank serving the 5 bedroom property was unfortunately discharging to a pond located within the property boundary.
This meant that the current setup was not compliant with the 2020 General Binding Rules, the legislation outlines that septic tanks can only discharge to ground and should this not be possible a new sewage treatment plant would need to be installed where a connection to mains sewer is not achievable.
2020 General Binding Rules.
To rectify the issues on site it was advised that the archaic septic tank was replaced with a Klargester Bioficient 3 IPS package sewage treatment plant, this was to retain the current connection to the pond discharging the treated effluent.
The Klargester Bioficient sewage treatment plants are the shallow dig option and by far one of the favourite tanks for our lads to install, the lids for these have the lowest visible impact when compared to the other systems on the market (The Klargester BioDisc and BioTec, Premier Tech ASP etc).
The Klargester Bioficient 3 IPS.
All treatment plants we install are BS-EN12566-3 certified which is the requirement outlined both by the 2020 General Binding Rules and the Building Regulations. The Bioficient is one of the cheaper of the Klargester products on the range which still retaining the high performance required, constructed of a robust GRP structure these system suit many different applications.
The new tank was installed utilising the existing drainage line from the property, a short connecting section of 110mm gravity inlet pipework was installed to divert to the new installation location – this was utilised for a new inspection chamber should this need to be rodded at any point.
On the outlet of the treatment plant there was also a sample point installed which is a standard requirement for any installation should there be an issue with the outfall/ require a sample to be taken. This was installed at the end of the MDPE pipework and just before a small section of gravity discharge to the pond.
