Maintenance of BAGA Easy wastewater treatment plants in Uppsala Region
BAGA Easy manufactured by BAGA Water Technology is one of many models ofwastewater treatment plants on the Swedish market today. Common to all wastewatertreatment plants is that they are more technologically advanced than traditional wastewatersolutions and therefore to function well require more maintenance. This study’s aim was toinvestigate how property owners maintain their BAGA Easy and to see if there were anycorrelations between maintenance and purification. Seventeen interviews were conductedwith property owners in the Uppsala Region. They were asked how they take care of theirplants and on their views of service contracts. The Environmental Offices in Uppsala Regionwere also interviewed about service contracts and if they would be interested in receivingreports from BAGA. Water samples were collected from fourteen of the seventeen BAGAEasy water treatment plants during March and April 2009. The test results revealedconsiderable variation in purification efficiency, which can be drawn to lack of maintenance.This shows the importance of establishing service contracts between property owners andmanufacturers. Development of new surveillance systems like BAGA’sFunktionsövervakning (F-SMS) is also important.
