Hotel Sewage Treatment Plant Scotland

Hotel Sewage Treatment Plant Scotland

Hotel Sewage Treatment Plant Scotland – 100 Pe Roto Roclean Sewage Treatment plant c/w oxygen probe and Scada remote monitoring being prepared for shipping to Scotland for installation in January.

Septic Tank Upgrade to Sewage Treatment Plant

With a new extension and upgrade to their hotel starting in January our clients also must upgrade their existing septic tank to a Sewage Treatment Plant to meet the requirements of SEPA.

As the hotel is primarily a wedding venue the Treatment Plant would have to cope with varying wastewater input loadings and achieve final effluent levels of 5mg/ltr on ammonia as stipulated by SEPA. To Achieve this, and have total control of the system our customer selected the Roto Roclean 100Pe SBR Sewage Treatment plant with oxygen probe and SCADA remote monitoring

Roto Roclean SBR Sewage Treatment Plant

sewage treatment plant

Why did our client choose the Roto Roclean Sewage Treatment Plant?

SBR systems are arguably the most efficient Sewage Treatment plants in the market, treating sewage in batches and able to cope with the varying input loadings.

Lower energy consumption as the compressors operate less than twelve hours per day.

Final effluent levels of 5mg/ltr ammonia can be achieved

The system will be monitored with SCADA remote monitoring and can be remotely controlled and adjusted if necessary, to ensure the system is working efficiently.

The Roto Tanks are manufactured from Polyethylene, are very strong and robust with telescopic necks allowing for an easier and faster installation, thus minimal disruption to their business.

The system is one tank with four 700mm diameter flat, locking covers meaning minimal visual impact in the hotel grounds.

Roclean Treatment Plant Cover

Peace of mind that the system will be monitored, serviced and maintained allowing them to focus on their business.

Grease Separator

Serving meals ultimately leads to a lot of grease entering the sewage system, so to minimise this our clients will also have a Rofett Grease separator installed, an absolute must for any commercial catering premises.

Domestic Sewage Treatment plant Installation Scottish Highlands

Domestic Sewage Treatment plant Installation Scottish Highlands

Domestic Sewage Treatment Plant Installation Scottish Highlands – Another Roto Ecobox 6Pe Sewage Treatment plant recently supplied and installed at Grantown on Spey in the Scottish Highlands.

For our customers extending their cottage meant they also had to upgrade their existing septic tank to a sewage Treatment Plant.

After researching several manufacturers Domestic Sewage Treatment Plants and visiting our stand at the Glasgow Homebuilding & Renovating Show, our customer decided to buy one of our Roto Ecobox Sewage Treatment Plants.

Why did they choose the Roto Ecobox?

Several factors led them to choose the Roto Ecobox.

The quality of the tank – manufactured in Polyethylene, the tank is very strong and robust and with a flat base, meant that installation would be faster and easier.

Roto Ecobox 6pe    Roto Ecobox Tank

The telescopic neck also allowed for an easier installation and with 600mm diameter flat locking covers meant less visual impact in the garden.

Roto Telescopic Neck    Roto Locking Lid

No Mechanical or electrical components inside the tank, meaning less maintenance costs.

Roto Ecobox tank Neck

The control cabinet could be placed up to 15 mtrs from the tank, again reducing the visual impact and allowing for service and maintenance to be carried out without the need to be at home whilst service work being carried out.

Low energy costs and longer lifespan of the compressor – as the system uses SBR treatment process and performs 4 cleaning cycles per day treating sewage in batches, this means the compressor is running less than 12 hours per day thus saving energy and prolonging the lifespan of the compressor.

Playing Their part in reducing the impact on the environment and selecting a treatment plant with excellent cleaning performance was another factor which influenced their decision to purchase the Roto Ecobox.

Supplied, Installed & Commissioned

With the tank delivered, installed and commissioned within 3 days, yet another happy customer with peace of mind they have bought a quality product.

Septic Tanks

Septic Tank Smell/Installation

Septic Tank Smell/Installation

Septic Tank Smell/Installation – Another visit to a customer complaining of smells from their existing septic tank resulted in a new Septic tank having to be installed – Why?

Having surveyed the site, we found several problems

  1. Existing septic tank cover not secured properly causing smells in the garden.
  2. No ventilation on the tank (apart from an open lid) no carbon vent fitted
  3. Existing soakaway blocked. Items found in soakaway – baby wipes, cotton buds, solids
  4. Baffle in existing fibreglass septic tank collapsed – this has allowed wipes, solids etc to pass to soakaway.


With no way of repairing the existing Septic Tank, we had no alternative other than to install a new Roto Roseptic HDPE septic tank and drainage field.

This involved installation of the new Roto Septic Tank, sampling chamber, septiXvent and drainage field/soakaway as well as diverting existing drainage to new tank and decommissioning the existing tank.

Fortunately, the ground conditions and weather were excellent for the installation (unusual for Scotland) which along with the choice of Septic Tank – Roseptic by Roto meaning no concrete was required, allowed for a quick and easy installation. The screw down adjustable neck on the Roseptic also sped up the install with no cutting of neck extensions.

Adding the finishing touches of the sampling chamber and Xoli septiXvent, backfilling and levelling off the sight and job was complete.


Another happy customer with no smell in their garden.

It is always good to receive feedback from our customers, in this case the following morning we were sent an email which read

Morning Eric, Thanks for all your work – much appreciated. It was nice to wake this morning to the smell of coffee rather than the smell of “something else” !!

To reduce smells and prevent costly repair bills it’s always a good idea to carry out regular care and maintenance checks, follow Do’s and Don’ts guidelines and have your septic tank emptied regularly.

Septic Tank Smells

Septic Tank Smells

Septic tank smells are a common problem we are asked to resolve.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a magic formula that will eradicate the smell and odour from human waste, however there are ways to control and reduce smells and odours coming from septic tanks and sewage treatment plants.

One way is to install a Xoli  septiXvent, our new septic tank vent kit

What causes Septic Tank Smells?

Again, a common question we are asked.

Several factors can cause smell around the tank and these can range from

FOG’S (fats, oils and grease) entering the system,

Excessive detergents entering the system – have a look at our Do’s and Dont’s page

Lack of maintenance i.e. tanks not being emptied at regular intervals

Poor installation

Loose or broken lids or in some case no proper lid fitted

Lack of ventilation or no ventilation

It is usually one or several of the above reasons but the most common problem we come across is lack of ventilation.

Septic Tanks and Sewage Treatment Plants should be ventilated.

Building Regulations H2 1.21 state

Septic tanks should prevent leakage of the contents and ingress of subsoil water and should

be ventilated. Ventilation should be kept away from buildings.

Septic Tank Vents

Septic Tank vents are readily available, however buying all the correct components to allow easy fitting of the vent can be quite a task. Not anymore!

Xoli septiXvent is now available to allow septic tank vents to be fitted easily.


Complete septic tank vent kit in one box with all the components require to install a vent.

The kit comprises of all pipes and fittings along with a carbon filled vent which allows the system to vent but prevents smells entering the atmosphere.

Visit or septiXvent page for more information.

So, If you have a problem with smells around your septic tank fitting a septiXvent along with a health check around your tank – does the tank need emptied, are all the covers secure? Is there FOGs entering the system? Fit a Grease Trap, reduce chemicals and detergents entering the system and you will reduce the smell.

Septic Tanks - Care & maintenance

Septic Tanks Care and Maintenance

Septic Tanks Care and Maintenance.

Septic Tanks & Sewage Treatment Plants WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY IF YOU DON’T LOOK AFTER THEM full stop!

Septic Tanks Care & Maintenance – Septic Tanks Smell – Yes they do! Maxifiltra can help – Septic Tanks – Yes they are full of SxxT

That doesn’t mean you don’t need to take care of them – you take care of yourself to make sure you work efficiently, like you take care of your car so it doesn’t break down.

What would happen if you ate a handful of baby wipes and cotton buds?

Yes, you would have a blockage and probably end up very ill

Or, what would happen if you put diesel in your petrol car (most of us have done it at some point)?

Yes, your car would break down, ruin your day and cost a lot of money to fix.

Septic Tanks and Treatment Plants, are the same – What you put in gets treated and comes out the other side

Septic Tanks  Care and Maintenance

Regular Inspection and Annual De-sludge are really important to ensure your tank is working efficiently.

Equally important is taking care of what enters the system.

Simply Feed it with the right fuel – it will run well!  

Feed it with junk – it will break down!

A common problem are baby wipes entering the system – Septic tanks & Drains don’t like baby wipes
