Overview

Once your Tricel Novo wastewater treatment plant has been installed, a Tricel representative should come to site to do the commissioning of the plant.

COMMISSIONING CERTIFICATE

You or your builder will receive a certificate of commissioning via email. This document will contain your tank details, along with your specific model type and tank number, which are needed to organise your maintenance contract.

MANDATORY REGISTRATION ON PROTECTOURWATER.IE

Under the Act, owners of domestic waste water treatment systems are required to ensure that their systems are on the register. Your registration will contribute to the protection of Ireland’s ground and surface waters.” Source: protectourwater.ie

The importance of desludging (emptying) your Novo wastewater treatment plant

When the sludge is occupying 50% of the volume of the primary chamber desludging is required, this is when the sludge is 700mm deep.

Desludging gets done with a vacuum tanker (Tricel recommend the use of a licensed company).

See dedicated page for more information about desludging of the Tricel Novo wastewater treatment plants and Tricel Vento Septic tanks.

Tricel Novo Maintenance

Regular maintenance by the homeowner

A certain amount of maintenance is required on an on-going basis to ensure that the system is working correctly, this is your responsibility as a homeowner.

Check the maintenance section on the manual for more information.

 

Annual maintenance by Tricel

Your Tricel Novo requires a full service every year to guarantee the efficiency of the plant is maintained. During this visit, our technician will check the sludge level and inform you on whether or not desludging is required. More information about the checks performed during the yearly maintenance visit can be found on the manual as well as on our Novo Maintenance dedicated page.
