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.

I wanted thank the team at Worm Farm Waste Systems for all their help, patience and professionalism. We had all kinds of obstacles to overcome including a very uncooperative council. But after 12 long months its all in and working beautifully. Super impressed.
