Scarab Solar System for the treatment of domestic sewage.

Scarabs Solar Sewage Treatment System

We installed a sewage treatment system in 2016 and the client asked . . . . 

. . . us to check it over.  I went to see him just yesterday.

We have installed many wastewater treatment plants but this one is a little different.

Stephen has a small holding in Pretoria, and had decided on our Scarab sewage treatment systems, to treat up to 65000 litres per day. Without Eskom power. The whole property is  solar powered, and then he only runs the plant during daylight hours, or when the sun shines.

Water quality? Its crystal clear and no foul odours.

Any issues? None at all, says Steve. Not a moment's trouble - in 5 years! Just a little maintenance, that's it.

Anything he would like us to change?  Well, yes. Could we reduce the sewage system's power consumption? The plant has already proven itself, since 2016, and should we manage to halve the consumption, and still maintain top water quality, this would be a major breakthrough for Scarab. Our plan is to replace all of Stephen's pumps with smaller units, and then monitor the results. Reducing power is something we have planned for, for a long time on all our sewage systems design. Now are we in a position to test a live plant.

What an exciting development!
