Scarab - Stinky on the South Coast


Sewage stinks, right?

Our second Scarab system was installed on the KZN South Coast, way back in early 2004.  When discussing where it should be placed, the client asked if it would smell. I think we were probably too quick to claim totally odourless operation.

When we arrived on site to complete the installation, we found the selected spot was right next to the supervisor's kitchen. Furthermore, they had built a recreation area - 1 meter from the plant.

Did the system ever smell?  Yes, once. In 2016, the supervisor called us to come take a look. Plant was fine.

It was the septic tank.
