Wastewater treatment advice – What are the treatment levels

Primary treatment:The primary treatment stage of treatment removes material that will either float or readily settle out by gravity. This is particularly the case of sludge, which dives due to gravity, and the grease that will retain its surface.


Secondary Treatment: The secondary treatment stage of treatment by biological processes, such as activated sludge or other (even non-biological) processes giving equivalent results. 


Tertiary treatment: Tertiary treatment additional treatment processes which result in further purification than that obtained by applying the primary and secondary treatment. This is the last treatment, it is applied, if for special cases, additional treatment is necessary

What is domestic wastewater?

Domestic wastewater refers to all wastewater generated within the home, including waste from sinks, showers, baths, and toilets. The rainwater does not qualify as grey water, so it should be disposed of in a soakaway.

How long does it take for the plant to start working?

Optimal purification may take up to 16 weeks for the biomass to become fully established.

Tricel recommends that you maintain your device to the fullest. You are obliged by law to avoid all types of pollution or nuisances. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information on our service contracts. An annual maintenance contract may be offered.
