Sewage treatment | Stop the drain – we solve the drain stop
We are specialists in sewage treatment and sewage stoppage. We help property owners with clogged sewers and blockages in the sewer.
When the water does not want to run off in the toilet, shower or sink, you should hurry to fix the problem. Stops in a drain and flooding can quickly cause moisture and water damage which can lead to huge costs and problems if you are unlucky.
Get to know your well!
To be able to take care of the well and the drinking water system, it is good to learn how these work. Where is the well located? Is it dug or drilled? What type of pump do you have?
Three types of wells
There are mainly three different well types. The most common today is to build rock-drilled wells. But the other types of wells are also common, especially in older properties.
For an excavated well, it is required that there are water-bearing layers at a depth of no more than five to six meters. Because the excavated well is located in shallow groundwater reservoirs, it is particularly sensitive to the effects of pollutants from, for example, sewage infiltration, acid rain and agriculture. The dug well is also sensitive to the groundwater surface being raised and lowered naturally. This means that the water supply can be poor, or that the well dries out completely, during dry periods. An excavated well is usually built in-house as there are no companies in Sweden that specialize in digging wells. With good conditions and good design, they can work well.
A filter well is a drilled well in the soil layers, where the filter is adapted to the properties of the groundwater bearing layer. Since the water is taken up from a greater depth than in the dug well, the filter well is less sensitive to superficial influences.
Rock-drilled wells in Sweden are most often carried out with the help of so-called submerged hammer drilling, which is operated with compressed air. The method is a combination of rotation and stroke. This drilling technique can handle almost all forms of water drilling regardless of ground conditions. Other technology is dependent on special geological conditions and has different limitations. Rock-drilled wells are usually constructed in two stages: partly drilling with casing through soil layers and a few meters down into the rock, partly pure rock drilling down to water-connected layers or cracks. Rock-drilled well is the type of well that is constructed most today. The rock-drilled well has great advantages if the work with it is carried out carefully and professionally. Therefore, only hire certified well drillers. The drilling technology facilitates, among other things, the possibilities of giving the well good protection against external influences.Although the water supply may be small, it is relatively rare for a rock-drilled well to provide too little water for an individual household.

Wikipedia information about SewageSewage Sewage (or domestic sewage, domestic wastewater, municipal wastewater) is a type of wastewater that is produced by a community of people. It is typically transported through a sewer system.: 175 Sewage consists of wastewater discharged from residences and from commercial, institutional and public facilities that exist in the locality.: 10 Sub-types of sewage are greywater (from sinks, bathtubs, showers, dishwashers, and clothes washers) and blackwater (the water used to flush toilets, combined with the human waste that it flushes away). Sewage also contains soaps and detergents. Food waste may be present from dishwashing, and food quantities may be increased where garbage disposal units are used. In regions where toilet paper is used rather than bidets, that paper is also added to the sewage. Sewage contains macro-pollutants and micro-pollutants, and may also incorporate some municipal solid waste and pollutants from industrial wastewater. Sewage usually travels from a building's plumbing either into a sewer, which will carry it elsewhere, or into an onsite sewage facility. Collection of sewage of several households together usually takes places in either sanitary sewers or combined sewers. The former is designed to exclude stormwater flows whereas the latter is designed to also take stormwater. The production of sewage generally corresponds to the water consumption. A range of factors influence water consumption and hence the sewage flowrates per person. These include: Water availability (the opposite of water scarcity), water supply options, climate (warmer climates may lead to greater water consumption), community size, economic level of the community, level of industrialization, metering of household consumption, water cost and water pressure.: 20 The main parameters in sewage that are measured to assess the sewage strength or quality as well as treatment options include: solids, indicators of organic matter, nitrogen, phosphorus, and indicators of fecal contamination.: 33 These can be considered to be the main macro-pollutants in sewage. Sewage contains pathogens which stem from fecal matter. The following four types of pathogens are found in sewage: pathogenic bacteria, viruses, protozoa (in the form of cysts or oocysts) and helminths (in the form of eggs). In order to quantify the organic matter, indirect methods are commonly used: mainly the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD).: 36 Management of sewage includes collection and transport for release into the environment, after a treatment level that is compatible with the local requirements for discharge into water bodies, onto soil or for reuse applications.: 156 Disposal options include dilution (self-purification of water bodies, making use of their assimilative capacity if possible), marine outfalls, land disposal and sewage farms. All disposal options may run risks of causing water pollution.
