How often should a Klargester be serviced?

Klargester manufacture a number of Sewage Treatment Systems, such as the BioDisc, BioFicient and BioTec range, all of which require servicing in line with standard and extended warranty conditions. In addition, if you have a permit to discharge into a stream or ditch you will be legally required to keep a management record of when your system was emptied and serviced.


Each system has specific manufacturers guideline which specify when you need to have a service and get the system emptied. Most domestic sewage treatment systems up to 12 person such as the Klargester BioDisc BA/BB/BA-X require annual servicing and it is recommended to check the operation of your motor/gearbox and bearings every 6 months. Regular maintenance of a Klargester BioDisc sewage treatment plant is vital for its long term continued performance. Failure to have your treatment system serviced can result in expensive repairs and potential pollution into the environment. Commercial BioDiscs can often be fitted with loss of rotation alarms and dosing systems to maintain performance. These need regular checking to ensure correct functionality.

It is worth mentioning that we highly recommend the Klargester BioDisc as a Sewage Treatment solution. The system itself is among the most reliable on the market. However, with anything mechanical things can sometimes go wrong. In the event of a breakdown, Klargester tanks have a control panel that immediately identifies the fault so you can get it fixed as fast as possible.

 

Klargester BioDisc Sewage Treatment Systems bought prior to 2022 will have a Klargester Green Control Panel, while newer systems are supplied with a white Darcy control panel. The Klargester green control panel triggers a low voltage beacon to indicate any fault on the system. See below fault codes.
