What is a home sewage treatment plant?

A home sewage treatment plant, or an HSTP, is a system which treats both greywater and blackwater in one convenient space. It is roughly based on community sewage treatment arrangements, however is condensed down into a smaller system to be suitable for one household instead of a whole area or street. A HSTP works on allowing natural bacteria to treat wastewater in an environmentally safe and secure way, without adding chemicals or nasties to the process. The greywater and blackwater are transferred between different chambers, allowing the separation out of solids, the addition of anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that don’t need oxygen to survive!) and the aeration of the liquids. Once this is complete, the water is environmentally safe and can be used in tasks such as watering your garden without being dangerous to you or those around you.

Do I need a home sewage treatment plant?

HSTPs are environmentally friendly options that allow wastewater, once treated, to be reused immediately in the environment and will not be a threat to you or your property. A lot of the time people don’t even realise that their home has a HTSP, as it works like any Municipal sewer system and gives all the benefits that it provides, however Municipal systems don’t allow you to use the treated wastewater like a HTSP does. They are therefore a beneficial option for the treatment of wastewater in an environmentally safe way, and you get to actively use the finished product whilst having a smaller impact on the environment.
