Septic System Cost - 5 Things You Should Know

When considering a what type of septic system you want or need there are several factors that determine your septic system cost.

 

  • Type of septic system required. Gravity feed or pump.
  • The number of bedrooms will determine the size of the your dispersal area. The typical house has 4 bedrooms.
  • The materials used to build septic tank. For example Poly Tank Vs Concrete.
  • Your local council septic tank regulations. Council permits vary from state to state.
  • The condition and location of your land. Some areas are more difficult to access and excavate.

There could other factors that affect the cost of your Septic System

  • Sand Filter. Does your location or council regulations mean that you will need a sand filter for secondary treatment.
  • Retrofit your existing septic tank. We can retrofit 80% – 90% of existing septic tanks.

Just wanted to thank the team at Worm Farm Waste Systems. We have a very challenging location and site but you handled everything beautifully. No fuss just pure professionalism all the way. You went above and beyond to install our system and it works a treat. Thanks again.

Hi Liz,
thank you for your email.
Everything went really well during the installation, apart from the horrendous force 9 gale blowing for the entire weekend – poor Alan, he must have felt like he’d been in a wind tunnel for two days! (I really appreciated his advice on creating windbreaks though – and his ability to remain undaunted!)
It was wonderful to meet Alan, I feel quite privileged that he installed my worm farm.
In fact, it has been a real pleasure dealing with your company (A&A) Liz, right from the very first call with Ev, through to being on hand while Alan installed the system, and all our communication in between, I’ve really enjoyed the whole experience. At all times throughout the process I felt like I was in safe hands, more importantly, your communication and guidance along the way has been brilliant. I think what I really appreciate most is that I felt like I was chatting with friends any time I spoke to you, or Ev or Tracey. That made me feel valued.

About The Frog

We use the frog as a mascot on our website, brochures and vehicles because they are excellent indicators of local environmental health. Frogs disappear when the environment is under stress and return when conditions improve.

It is not unusual to find frogs living happily in our Eco-Friendly Septic Tank Systems and as they die in polluted water. What better proof is there of how healthy the environment becomes when you install one of our systems.
