ConSept Installation in a Listed Building
20 Sept 2020
Jason Bradley had previously visited the site in order to assess the suitability and depth of the septic tank. As each septic varies in depth, the ConSept is tailor-made for each site at the factory unit in Sleaford. James and Miles, the site engineers, were on site early to ensure that the de-sludger had emptied the tank properly.

The introduction of a constant stream of air into the tank encourages the aerobic bacteria. They breakdown organic matter far better than anaerobic bacteria and the quality of the final effluent enables it to be discharged to the ditch.
Now for the hard work, laying the electricity cable.
In this case, the engineers were able to use the owner's own digger to trench over 50 metres from the blower to the Isolating Switch on the wall of the stables. A simple job then to connect to a 13 amp power point inside the building .
