Having an efficient and high-quality wastewater system in your home is a must for the safe and effective running of your home.

Whether you’re the owner of a small, rural home, or a developer who wants to install a wastewater treatment system in a large-scale apartment block, our team is happy to help. In this blog, we will give a run-down of wastewater treatment systems we have available and advice on how to choose the best one for your home.
What is a Wastewater Treatment System?
A wastewater treatment system is a system installed in any domestic, commercial or industrial property that manages the removal and treatment of wastewater out of the home. This is water used in toilets, showers, baths, and sinks. Poorly managed wastewater treatment systems are incredibly dangerous, posing a risk to the environment and human health if broken or leaking. That’s why it’s important to regularly service and properly maintain your wastewater treatment system, no matter what kind you have. Due to the different sizes and amounts of water used in different properties, the wastewater treatment systems we design and install vary from client to client. Below are some of our most popular solutions.
Aeration Sewage Treatment Systems
Perhaps the most common type of domestic and commercial wastewater treatment system is the standard aeration sewage treatment system. Installed underground and connected to the water supply of the property, an aeration sewage treatment system uses an aeration system to safely treat household and commercial wastewater. By combining a GRP tank, low wattage linear compressor, and underground installation, the aeration sewage treatment system is the perfect option if you’re looking for something highly functional without being disruptive or an eyesore. As well as being suitable for both domestic and commercial wastewater, aeration systems can be installed in new builds or to replace your existing sewage treatment system.
Puraflo Peat Fibre Biofilter
The Puraflo Peat Fibre Biofilter wastewater treatment system is a relatively new, and highly innovative, form of wastewater treatment that can be used in most domestic properties and/or domestic housing developments. Unlike aeration systems, this wastewater treatment system uses sustainable and eco-friendly peat fibres to provide a safe, microbiological treatment of wastewater. This type of environmentally conscious treatment system has virtually no running costs, as it operates on microbiological functionality alone. Another great benefit to the Puraflo Peat Fibre Biofilter system is that it has an extremely high pathogen and nitrogen removal level, ensuring a safer and greener environment around your property. After treatment, the water filtered by this system can be collected or disposed of accordingly.
As one of the rainiest countries in Europe, it makes sense that we’re slowly making the move toward rainwater harvesting as a popular and viable form of water collection! While not a method of wastewater treatment, per se, rainwater harvesting is an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective, and energy-efficient way of supplying water in your home. After being collected, rainwater can be used in toilets, sinks, showers, baths, and anywhere else in the home where potable water is not necessarily required. As well as being suitable for homes, rainwater harvesting systems can be installed in commercial properties and connected to existing wastewater treatment systems for a greener and cheaper way of using water for everyone.
