Sewage Treatment Systems For Hospitals
When compared with the wastewater output of a domestic residence, it is perhaps unsurprising that sewage treatment plants for healthcare premises, such as care homes and hospitals, often require more frequent inspections due to their increased usage. Unlike domestic sewage treatment plants, commercial sewage systems are known to have a heightened presence of chemical disinfectants in wastewater and are of course subject to higher levels of use due to patient and visitor use, enhanced levels of cleaning and facilities such as hospital kitchens.
Not only this, but wastewater of healthcare premises can contain drug residue, infectious diseases, bacteria, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals that can be potentially dangerous if not treated correctly.
With this in mind, it is essential that your hospital or care home has the correct sewage treatment system in place to deal with the maximum capacity of said building, that it is frequently maintained to prevent any costly issues in the future, and that your facility remains compliant with the 2020 Septic Tank Regulations, as well as related healthcare regulations.

Sewage Treatment Problems
Sewage treatment problems at a healthcare institution is not only a compliance risk but can also cause major health risks to patients and the surrounding population. Containing a higher level of chemicals than domestic wastewater, hospital sewage can cause problems for the environment as well as potential threats to human health.
With frequent yet fluctuating use, large hospital kitchens and a higher use of chemicals, hospitals can face a heightened risk of sewage treatment system overflows, blockages, cracks and more. It is therefore imperative that facilities managers are aware of potential sewage treatment issues and how to solve them.
There may be warning signs that your system is struggling, such as saturated ground where the tank has been installed and unpleasant odours coming from toilets, sinks, drains and more.
