Septic installation options
The septic tank, available in concrete or plastic, is a tank designed to treat wastewater by retaining solids and grease for approximately 24 hours.
Its role is to prepare the water for subsequent purification by infiltration into the ground of the purifying element, separating the effluent from suspended matter.
Components of the septic tank
- Pumping station
Advanced secondary treatment system
Discover our advanced secondary treatment system, offering key benefits for efficient wastewater treatment:
Improved effluent quality
Superior quality to primary and secondary treatment systems.
Reduction of suspended solids (MES) and reduction of carbon pollution (BOD5C).
Reduced post-processing requirements
The system represents fewer constraints for the following steps.
Various effluent management options
Adaptability to a polishing field, a tertiary system, or environmentally friendly discharge.
System with UV lamp
Our UV lamp treatment system has specific conditions of use:
Installation of systems with UV disinfection generally prohibited.
Permitted if the municipality concerned ensures maintenance, in accordance with section 25.1 of the Municipal Powers Act.
Little accepted in Estrie, especially because of the proximity of lakes and restrictions linked to watersheds.
Authorization in certain cases
Possible in some municipalities, particularly in areas outside lake watersheds, such as near the St-François River.
FDi Disinfection Filter
- Allows discharge into the ditch, unless it opens into a lake watershed.
- Suitable for all types of soil, including clay, such as near the St-François River.
- Waterproof system, ideal for conditions where infiltration is not viable.
- In the event of discharge into a lake watershed, need to add a phosphorus removal and disinfection unit, increasing the cost (more than $30,000) with annual maintenance costs.
The lamp is compact and does not alter the landscape.
It is rarely permitted in Estrie. Accepted only in certain municipalities under conditions of municipal maintenance and billing to the customer via property taxes.
The BIONEST UV lamp
Bionest also offers a UV lamp that can be integrated into its 2nd tank, the biological reactor.
La lampe UV D'HYDRO-KINETIC
Hydro-Kinetic also offers a UV lamp.
The Waterloo Biofilter is offered with a UV lamp. The biofilter is outside the ground, a bit like a small shed.
There are other subtleties in the systems for particular applications. Our experts will be able to advise you on the best system for your needs.
Some systems were created but ceased to be manufactured. Bio-B, Ecobox, Purifying Reed, etc.
