Site suitability assessment

A site suitability assessment / percolation test is used to determine if a septic tank or wastewater treatment system is suitable for a proposed development. Our team of highly qualified & experience engineers offer:

  • Free preliminary site visit & planning advice
  • Site Suitability Assessment in accordance with the EPA 2009 Code of Practice
  •  “Fit for Purpose” design for the treatment system & polishing filter
  • ISO 9001:2008 from the NSAI Authority for the design of treatment systems
  • Professional negligence indemnity insurance up to €13,000,000

Only bioCycle™  includes a “Fit for Purpose” design for the treatment system & polishing filter with our site suitability assessments. When certified offers the best long term wastewater solution and unrivaled protection for the homeowner.

The EPA 2009 design is based on a calculation which just uses the number of bedrooms at a property to determine system loading. It does not account for usage of appliances or water saving devices which have a significant impact on treatment system loading. This could lead to an inadequate wastewater treatment system and result in:

  • Homeowner liability under the Water Services Act 2012
  • Non-compliance with Building Regulations
  • Risk to human health and the environment
  • Increased maintenance costs
  • Decease lifespan of polishing filter
  • Obnoxious odours
