Uponor biological treatment plant 7

Ervi and Liisa Helanto are among the first owners of Uponor biological treatment plants in Finland. The information from the use experiences of the plant, installed in 1999, have been an important part of th development work of the device.

The family of four live in a single family home, built in 1964, in Ruuhijärvi, Nastola, Finland. The terrain is demanding and rocky, and the house is only 20 meters from the shore of the lake.

"We noticed that the hillside that had been used for absorbing waste water for over 30 years no longer was up to the task. The ground smelt unpleasant, especially during hot periods in the summer. We put gravel on top of it but that only helped for a short while," Ervi Helanto explains.

A new absorption field was out of the question, due to the quality of the ground, and a soil filtration plant would not fit on the plot. In the end, an Uponor biological treatment plant was installed in the yard.

"We noticed that the bad smell disappeared from the waste water immediately," says Ervi Helanto.

Nowadays, the only maintenance required is the addition of chemicals and emptying of the septic tanks, both of which are done a couple of times a year. The usage cost of the biological treatment plant is about EUR 250 per year.

"And that's the biggest difference between Uponor and competing systems: we don't need to get our hands dirty cleaning filters or doing any other kind of maintenance task. The Uponor biological treatment plant has been very easy to use and the service we have received has been friendly and quick."

Getting rid of indoor radon

Getting rid of indoor radon

Uponor's radon system was installed in a detached house in Ilomantsi, completed in 1987. Previously, the radon values in the house were 1,188 becquerels. After installing the system, the radon values dropped to 83.

The biological treatment plant is worth its price

The Murto family, from Savonlinna, Finland, live in a sturdy log cabin built in 1845. The waste water system of the house had last been overhauled in the 1970s and the old concrete wells and absorption field had reached the end of their lifecycle. The choice was between renovating the old wells and getting an Uponor biological treatment plant, and the decision was not difficult to make.

Renovation of the district heating piping system of six housing companies

Six housing companies located in the Hurttivuori district in Turku have a joint heating plant – Nokikana Oy. The terraced houses, which were built between 1975 and 1977, contain a total of 104 flats. Heating and water are supplied to all flats by a joint heating plant. Renovating the piping system became a necessity due to leaks. The plant's insulated elements were renovated in such a way that all residents were able to live in their homes for the entire duration of the renovation.
