With the recent new legislation introduced by the Government the importance of buying a fully compliant plant has never been more significant.
The Environmental Permitting Programme Phase Two (EPP2) has highlighted how important it is to have a sewage treatment plant that is certified and fully type tested under EN12566-3 and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions. The WPL
Diamond is fully compliant, and offers customers complete peace of mind. By choosing a plant from WPL
(available through builders’ merchants) self-builders, developers, specifiers and homeowners are assured that their wastewater treatment solution meets all current regulations.
has an experienced, national Service Team offering onsite maintenance contracts for all of its own products as well as other makes of sewage treatment plant. The service team comprises of engineers who have all been awarded the ‘Qualified Service Engineer’ accreditation under the British Water scheme, in co-operation with the Environment Agency (EA), for maintaining small sewage treatment plants up to 50pe.
Since compliance with EN 12566-3 became mandatory in July 2008 for small wastewater treatment systems (up to 50 persons), some manufacturers’ plants are still not fully tested and accredited with the CE mark and customers are encouraged to check before buying. Companies that manufacture plants that are CE marked, such as the WPL
Diamond, will be able to provide copies of their official certificates to confirm this accreditation and compliance with the EN 12566-3.
Products with the CE Mark reassure the purchaser that the product meets the essential requirements of relevant European Directives relating to health and safety. But what does CE accreditation mean for wastewater treatment systems? Independent tests are undertaken to assess the system’s sewage treatment efficiency and ensure it meets the required process performance standard.
The Diamond is also fully compliant with UK Building Regulations and standard Environment Agency and SEPA specifications therefore keeping it in line with the new legislation recently introduced.
