Do’s and Don’ts

“Super-Treat” has been designing and manufacturing Wastewater Treatment Systems since 1986. Your treatment plant provides a natural biological process where active anaerobic bacteria decompose or “digest” the solid matter within the system. Any unnatural product introduced into the system that has the ability to “Kill Off” the bacteria may do just that, with embarrassing results. The primary chamber turns sour, and the resulting unpleasant odour can be quite offensive, until such time as the tank stabilises and the bacteria regain control this situation continues.

CONSIDER THE PRODUCTS YOU USE —– CHOOSE WISELY !

ALL of the water based produced products used throughout the home finish up in the treatment plant, the basic understanding should be moderation of use and when products are specifically labelled “ anti-bacterial “ then use “sparingly”.

Use cleaners, soap powders, detergents etc in the quantities recommended by the manufacturer. Excessive use of detergents, soap powders, bubble bath etc ALL will cause foaming and frothing in the treatment chamber where aeration will intensively activate those products.. Other than reducing the system’s efficiency capability it is a waste of money.

DON’T

  • Put paint, solvents, thinners down drains and toilets.
  • Place used kitchen oils down drains, bury such in the garden.
  • Dump left over medication down toilets, particularly; antibiotics.
  • Put strong caustics, acids, alkalis or chemical detergents down drains.
  • Dispose of solids items such as newspapers, disposable or sanitary napkins, rubber products, nappy liners or cotton buds down toilets.
  • Put water containing strong washing nappy products down toilets, they are invariably anti-bacterial and should not go down the drains. Same rule for bleach, when using large strong quantities dispose of the water containing these away from the system in a remote area of the yard.

Everything
that goes into your toilets and drains goes into your treatment system.
