What is a home sewage treatment plant?

A home sewage treatment plant, otherwise known as a HSTP, is an arrangement which treats both greywater and blackwater in one area. In principle, a HSTP is loosely based around a community sewage treatment system, however, is just on a smaller scale (suited to one home instead of an entire street or area).

A HSTP allows natural bacteria to treat wastewater in an eco-friendly and secure way, without adding harmful chemicals to the process. The greywater and blackwater travel between various chambers, allowing the separation of solids, the addition of anaerobic bacteria - bacteria that don't rely on oxygen to survive - and the aeration of the leftover liquids. Once this is complete, the water is environmentally safe and can be used in without being dangerous to you or those around you e.g. watering your garden.

Although there are different types of HSTPs, there are a few common parts that all share:

  • Primary treatment chamber.
  • Secondary treatment chamber.
  • Settling, disinfection and pump out chamber.
  • Irrigation pump.

What benefits do a HSTP offer?

  • Unlike a septic system, the HSTP has three stages to treat the wastewater to a higher level.
  • Use a more complicated filtration, biological and mechanical process than other options.
  • The effluent or ‘treated wastewater’ that is released from a HSTP is non-polluting, meaning it can be released both above and below ground.
  • Relatively cost-effective to run.
  • Treats both blackwater and greywater.
  • Environmentally friendly and lower impact on the ecosystem.

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 as a HTSP does.
