Tricel Maintenance & Servicing
Did you know that you are responsible for ensuring that your wastewater treatment system is de-sludged and maintained annually to prevent possible pollution?
One of the MOST important steps you can take to maintain your wastewater treatment tank is to get it desludged (emptied) at least once every 12 months.
Q. I have been told that I don’t NEED to get my Tricel treatment tank emptied, that the bacteria breakdown the sludge? Is this True?
- No, this is NOT true. ALL wastewater treatment tanks need to be emptied (desludged) once a year. The sludge remains in the tank and it is only the waste water that is treated before it leaves the tank. You are entitled to one free desludge a year if you are paying rates. Call NI Water on 03457440088 to arrange a desludge or visit their online self service portal.
Q. Does it matter where on my tank I get it emptied? Is there a particular access point?
- Yes! You need to make sure your Tricel wastewater treatment tank is desludged using the sludge cap as an access point… see below.
The sludge cap is the smaller round green cap – this is the access point where the tank should be desludged annually.
If the desludging company desludges your tank via the green compressor access cover then they will only be removing clean water, NOT sludge.
