Interceptors & Sumps require regular maintenance to remove sediments
Sumps should be cleaned out once the sump reaches 60% sedimentation. Otherwise your sump will not work so well and more sediment and contaminants will pass through it into the storm water system.
These systems should be cleaned out regularly or if there is a significant quantity of product or oily material in the device employing appropriate treatment and/or disposal of all liquid, hazardous and solid wastes is essential for preventing pollution.
Silt traps are designed to provide a sump for collecting wash water and is typically placed in the centre of a wash bay so that the wash water falls to one collection point.
Placed prior to the interceptor a silt trap collects larger debris and can be accessed via a hinged galvanised grating for easy manual emptying.
We provide Specialist Disposal to a registered facility (oil treatment recovery/recycle). Our methodology of recovery and treatment are considered the ideal way to treat this product.

How Often? A number of factors determine this:
