The solution with concrete encasement and cast iron cover is chosen when it is possible to place the separator outside the building, or during major structural work. In this case, it is incorporated under the apron or the foundations of the building.
For existing objects or during conversion, the freestanding solution will, in principle, be retained. If the separator has to be placed at a lower level than the wastewater collector, it is possible to install a pumping tank downstream.
Ecoplast separators comply with SN 592000 standards, the guidelines of the Association of Water Treatment Professionals (ASPEE) and the requirements of the cantonal directives, in particular the DCPE 560.
In order to reduce the risk of odours and to facilitate maintenance, Ecoplast offers the possibility of adding automatic dosing equipment injecting a Biofood© grease degrading product into the separator.
The separator must be drained periodically. The frequency of intervention is determined according to the workload and in agreement with the company in charge of emptying the tank as well as the competent local authority. For this purpose, a contract will be established between the operator and a specialised company approved by the Department of public works, planning and transport (DTPAT).
It is mandatory to empty the tank at least once a year.
The company in charge will respect the ordinances on the transport and treatment of special waste. After the tank has been emptied, they will fill up the installation with clear water.
