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.

A Grand Worm Farm

5.0 rating

We have had our A & A Worm Farm operating now for 8 years at our property in Inverloch. This amazing system devours our green food/garden waste as well as the human waste without any smells or noise-giving us a feeling of deep satisfaction and amazement for the many visitors to whom we have raved about the system.
The Worm Farm is a critical part of our holistic Sustainable house and lifestyle establishment here at Inverloch.
I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending to anyone to consider install such a system and talk to the team about how creative one can get integrating the final effluent with your landscaping/plantation ideas.
Sorry to the A & A guys for being slow to post the review but at least readers can be assured of the longevity of the system.
I’m happy to answer any User type queries any prospective system purchaser may have

Bush Fires Burned Our Septic System

5.0 rating

I installed an A & A Worm Farm Waste System on my rural property November 2003 in the NSW area of Cessnock. Unfortunately the 2019 bush fires burnt the system. I immediately arranged for a replacement system to be installed. The new system was installed efficiently in March 2020.
This is the first time I have spent any money on our septic system in 17 years. The best lost cost system on the market.

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.
