Tricel Novo Review: Cheaper, Longer Lasting & Better Effluent Quality

Tricel Novo Review: Price


Off-Mains Drainage Can Be Overwhelming And Very Expensive. However, The Tricel Novo Is A Modestly Priced Unit Which Will Also Save You Money Down The Line. The Tricel Novo Has A Lower Installation Costs Compared To GPR Or Polyethylene Alternatives Due To Not Needing A Concrete Backfill On Most Sites And There Are No Moving Parts Or Pumps Within The Plant Which Keeps Maintenance At A Minimum. 


Tricel Novo Review: Installation

 

Tricel offer three different manhole riser heights to suitdifferent invert/inlet levels. This helps with installation where site conditions require a flexible solution. We would always recommend that tanks are backfilled with concrete, however, Tricel boast that on most sites, concrete backfill is not necessary with the Tricel Novo, which could save you over £300 on installation costs.

 

Tricel Novo Review: Design

 

The Tricel Novo design is less intrusive than a Klargester BioDisc or BioTec as the access cover is smaller. The air compressor and control panel is located under a green cover on top of the unit which makes the system is very safe with a low impact on its surroundings. The shape of the tank is preferred by some engineers as it is easier to transport and fits into narrow spaces.

 

Tricel Novo Review: Warranty

 

The Tricel Novo is made from one of the strongest materials on the market - a Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC) which has a structural warranty of 20 years.  

Internal parts of the system are covered by a 3 year warranty, this includes the air blower.

On average this is a longer warranty period than other manufacturers.

The Tricel Novo has been supplied with Resun Air Compressors in the past which are not widely used in the UK. Therefor it can be difficult to source spare parts for them if they get a fault. However, Tricel can offer alternative air compressors.

The bottom line is that Tricel is a fantastic company that stands by its products and raises the bar for what a sewage treatment systemcan do.
