Septic tank options Wastewater Treatment  – Tricel Vento 

The Tricel Vento septic tank is an ideal solution for wastewater treatment when used in conjunction with the appropriate disposal system, it’s one of the septic tank options.

First of all, the tank is divided into two chambers, sized sufficiently to hold wastewater for an adequate amount of time for the solids to drop to the bottom to form a sludge and the lighter material to rise to the top of the liquid to form a scum.

As a result, the remaining liquid effluent is passed through the outlet pipe into the disposal system for final treatment. In addition, Tricel Vento septic tanks are manufactured from high-density polyethene using the latest in blow moulding technology. This market-leading product possesses high strength and durability characteristics, when combined with its lightweight this ensures ease of installation that makes it ideally suitable for all septic tank applications.

In conclusion, the Tricel Vento septic tank is designed in compliance with EN12566-1 standards.

How a Septic Tank Works

Stage 1:

First, the wastewater flows by gravity into Chamber 1 of the Tricel Vento, where the solids and heavier material settle to the base of the unit. A small amount of anaerobic breakdown occurs at this stage.

Stage 2:

Then, the liquid and lighter waste material flow over the baffle into the second chamber. A layer of scum forms at the top of the liquid. A specially designed outlet filter is fitted to the unit to ensure that only the liquid flows into the percolation area. This outlet filter prevents the solids from passing into the percolation area which may block pipes.

Stage 3:

Finally, the improvement of the wastewater occurs as it penetrates through a specially designed percolation area.

We just wanted to give some positive feedback for Norbert who just serviced our Puraflo system.

He has just completed the service on our system and we want to pass on our praise for his thorough work. He was extremely helpful in explaining the issue with the system and above all, it was just great to encounter someone with such a nice attitude.

We shall highly recommend Tricel.

Very professional, good communicator and first class.

I am delighted that I chose to install a Tricel plant in 2009 because the outflow is practically clear water and I am confident it will work reliably indefinitely. It is the perfect solution for our site which has no soakage worth talking about in winter.

I would be happy to recommend Tricel to anybody or show the site.
