Simply Amazing

We are also very happy with our new worm farm septic system. The fact that we can add our organic waste into the system is a real bonus. And that was the deciding factor when we went ahead with this system. It's a fully environmentally friendly system that just works. If you're in the market for a septic system we can highly recommend this one.

Very professional and nothing was ever a problem. It's been 3 months now and our worm farm septic system is going along beautifully. If you're looking for an eco-friendly septic system this is the one.

Hello, Liz. Thank you so much for your quick reply. Yes, we will send all the information to the new owner. We are sad to leave our little block, with the worm farm the best choice we ever made for the block, But due to health and family issues, we have moved to Brisbane and now dealing with the city sewerage system.

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.
