Klargester Alpha Septic Tank

Kingspan Klargester Alpha tank
A septic tank provides a traditional solution to sewage disposal needs for domestic dwellings without access to mains drainage. The Klargester Alpha septic tank range provides a reliable and economic solution for homes and small business premises with off mains drainage.

Made from composite GRP, the Klargester Alpha septic tank is strong, light and watertight and available in three sizes. It is suitable for individual domestic dwellings up to a large family house.
 

Homeowners with septic tanks that discharge directly into surface water will need to replace or upgrade their drainage either when they sell their property or as soon as possible. 
 
Homeowners are responsible for their choice, installation and maintenance of their wastewater system under a new code of practice introduced by the Environment Agency. They have a legal responsibility to minimise the impact of your sewage waste if they manage it within the bounds of your property e.g. with a septic tank or sewage treatment plant (Binding Rules 2020, DEFRA, January 2015).


Important Update: 

Under very specific ground or site conditions, reed beds and converters can occasionally be used to comply with the  General Binding RulesKingspan Klargester's reed beds are low maintenance, easy to install, and Building Regulations-compliant.

In all instances a sewage treatment system should be considered as the first option.

Septic tanks may be installed, subject to consent, in applications where:
  • Soil is of suitable porosity.
  • Installation complies with Building Regulations (Approved Document H).
  • The installation will not contaminate any ditch, stream or other watercourse.
