Bio Pure Treatment System retrofit to an existing sewage system in Athlone

For this job, we retrofitted and upgraded an old existing septic tank with our Bio Pure system, which treats the effluent to a high quality and pumps off the treated waste water to the percolation area. We also dug out and installed the new percolation area.
Sometimes working in enclosed or mature gardens presents us with challenges getting equipment and material to site, but we are used to working in all conditions. At the end of all jobs, we are always careful to put back soil and driveway materials and leave things as tidy as possible.

Covering the costs of sewage treatment

For owners of homes with septic tanks, you will most likely already be aware of recent regulations and certification requirements for septic tanks. This has been passed down from EU level, and is in place to ensure that the health of people and the environment is protected.

There are huge numbers of old septic tanks which just don’t work properly anymore, overflowing and flooding areas, causing sewage smells, piping untreated effluent into streams or rivers and causing pollution.

In the last few years, local authorities have required home-owners to register their septic tanks, and have started to inspect treatment systems around the country.
This is being handled on a priority basis, but eventually, most if not all tanks will have been inspected for compliance.

Non-compliance means a septic tank will not receive its certification and will need to be repaired or replaced. Installation of a septic tank can be costly, so grants have been made available (on a scaled percentage of cost based on income means).

Grants for renewal of septic tank and water treatments systems can be obtained by applying to your local authorities. Qualifying criteria apply, but Bio Pure Tech will be happy to assist you in this.

Percolation areas and finishing works

With percolation areas, we finish of by grading and landscaping so it becomes practically invisible. Wherever it’s needed, we can bring in additional top soil, spread it out, level and rake it to landscape.
