Klargester delivers off-mains drainage system
off-mains drainage system
The Henley Rowing Club has upgraded its off-mains drainage system by installing a Klargester Biodisc treatment plant to service the needs of the clubhouse.
The Biodisc replaced an ageing septic tank that had struggled to cope with the demands of the Club.
The expansion of the club had placed strain on the existing septic tank and soakaway.
Nigel Read, chairman of Henley Rowing Club, said: 'The tank and the soakaway were so overloaded that they were overflowing in the car park and entrance to the clubhouse and blocking the drains on a regular basis.
It was causing an environmental and health hazard as well as costing the Club more than GBP3,000 a year to empty and clear the drains.' After assessing the club's needs, installers W J Hatt recommended removing the septic tank and replacing it with a Klargester Biodisc and pumping stations to manage both the removal and treatment of the raw sewage, as well as the dispersal of the treated effluent.
It took three weeks to install both the Biodisc and pumping stations, but it has met all the demands placed upon it.
The Environment Agency has consented for it to be discharged directly into the River Thames.
Kevin Roe, sales director, Klargester said: 'The Biodisc removes more than 97 per cent of sewage pollutants, and the resulting clear, odourless overflow is very environmentally-friendly.
The fact that the overflow can be discharged into watercourses with Environment Agency agreement has worked well in this sensitive, but challenging, location,' he added.
Klargester launch the Beta Plus septic tank, made of tough roto-moulded polyethylene, making storage, transportation, offloading and installation better for builders.
