I had Callum the Scottish sales representative out at my property. We were in urgent situation and he managed to come out the next day after my initial enquiry was made and offered various solutions. We went with the Novo which was delivered within a week. Our groundworkers installed it without any problems. Tricel provided a seamless and efficient service alongside a great product. I would highly recommend.

Tricel are one of the easiest companies to deal with. The external rep for our area is happy to go above and beyond to help us secure the order. Thanks for all your help Ryan. Special thank you Ryan, for spending three days (including a Saturday) to help with a local agricultural show, the only supplier who spent that time with us. Would highly recommend dealing with this supplier for all your needs.

Make sure you understand the delivery procedure before ordering from this company. After paying for our small tank and delivery ( an extra £200+ ) we were then told that delivery didn’t include getting the tank off the lorry. This would be an additional £313 plus vat. A total of £560 plus vat just for delivery. I would have ordered from someone else if I had known this before ordering. Today was delivery day, no sign of the tank towards the end of the day, when I rang I was told the driver was running late, could we wait till after 5. At 6.30 pm still no tank and no phone call from driver.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cesspool is a simple storage vessel with an inlet and no outlet. It’s a sealed storage vessel; all the water coming in stays within the tank. The advantage is it doesn’t need an outlet. The disadvantages are: there is no treatment, the tanks are huge, and it needs regular emptying. Everything which has gone in must be sucked out. Ideal for sites which have got very infrequent use (Sheppard huts, for example).

A septic tank has an inlet and an outlet; it’s a simple overflow system. See how a septic tank works here. The advantages of the septic tank are there is no mechanic and no electricity requirement for it to work. The disadvantages are you are discharging dirty water, and untreated sewage effluent, as a tiny breakdown has occurred in the tank. You can only release water to a drainage field for it to percolate through the subsoil for further treatment.

A sewage or package treatment plant has an inlet and an outlet; the wastewater is treated inside the tank. Aeration is provided inside the tank for the aerobic bacteria to feed on the waste and remove it from the liquid. The advantages are the wastewater is treated and can be discharged to a watercourse. 

Many package treatment plants are available on the market:

  • Trickles filters
  • Rotating Biological Contactors (RBC)
  • Mobile media bio-reactors
  • Activated Sludge systems
  • Sequence Batch Reactor systems (SBR)
  • Fixed Bed Systems (like the Tricel Novo)

Domestic wastewater is all wastewater generated inside the house, including grey water from sinks, showers, baths and sewage from toilets. Rainwater is not classified as greywater and should be directed to a soakaway.

A trial hole can be dug during the site assessment and left open for 48 hours to determine this. The ground level is used to measure the water level.

After the water is discharged, it must flow into a drainage field or a running watercourse. It will fail and block up very quickly whenever it is released directly into the ground. It will also violate the government’s General Binding Rules for small sewage discharges—more information on this page.
