A Klargester Storage Tank provides a reliable solution for locations without mains drainage, where the discharge of treated effluent is not permissible due to unsuitable ground conditions, or where infrequent or seasonal use, such as a holiday home, would prevent the successful functioning of a BioDisc/Biotec packaged treatment plant, for example. See Legislations for more information regarding regulations.
Features & Benefits
- Quality and reliability
at a competitive price Kingspan Environmental Storage Tankss have been successfully installed throughout the world since 1967. They are constructed from non-corrosive materials, designs in accordance with BS 6297: 1983.
- Factory tested
Every Storage Tank is tested to ensure that it is watertight and structurally sound.
- Easy to install and maintain
Delivered as a complete unit ready for installation, each Storage Tank must be installed in a level condition and bedded on, and surrounded with, 225mm thickness of concrete. The Storage Tank will need to be ballasted internally with water and remain so until the concrete has set. Full installation instructions are provided with each unit, but are also available on request. Storage Tanks are for storage only and their contents have to be emptied at regular intervals by tanker. A 'high level' alarm is available for monitoring the Storage Tank for optimum usage.
- Lockable manhole cover
For added safety, Storage Tanks can be supplied with a lockable manhole cover.
For a single dwelling 18180 litres (4000 gallons) is the minimum allowable capacity. This size should be increased by 6800 litres (6.8m³) for each additional user.
A treatment plant serving a 3-bedroom farmhouse
The client approached Klargester to discuss the options for replacing a failing brick Septic Tank. Key criteria were to reduce frequency of tank-emptying visits and to use existing soakaway without the risk of blockage. Major concern was also to reduce pollution of surrounding streams and watercourses.
