Understanding and taking care of your on-site wastewater management system (OWMS) for domestic wastewaters

The safe management of the wastewater discharging from your dwelling is your responsibility. Because of its complex and somewhat unpredictable contaminant composition (compared to say clean water) it is one of the most difficult and risky materials to handle, convey and process. It is aggressive on mechanical components and pipe systems can be very prone to blockages. Therefore, for any wastewater management service to be effective and sustainable you do need to ensure that it is competently and regularly serviced.
