We design site specific Domestic Septic Systems

And assist with Council Permits

For residential septic systems, the number of bedrooms and the soil type is taken into consideration when designing your system and effluent disposal area. Most councils require a Land Capability Assessment as part of the permit process. We can recommend a geotechnical company in your locality which is licensed to prepare these documents.

To make the permit process simple for you, we also assist with the council permit application. We require two copies of your site and floor plans, your Land Capability Assessment and payment of the council permit fees. We are in contact with councils Australia-wide every day and intimately understand the terminologies that may otherwise seem complex to people who are unfamiliar with the process. Septic Tank Regulations vary from state to state so if you’re not about your local council regulations please follow the link.

If your residential site is on a hill, a non-powered gravity septic system may be suitable. On flat sites we install a small sump pump to disperse the worm liquid from the system to the effluent disposal area. The sump pump is only activated on demand for a couple of minutes when required.

The advantages of our Domestic Septic Systems

Servicing your unit

Unlike most waste treatment companies which charge a quarterly or annual service fee, A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems will visit your site 6 months after you start using the system to check that everything is working correctly.

All we ask is that you advise us 6 months after commencement of use so we can schedule your check-up service. This first visit is carried out at no cost to you. Subsequent visits are recommended every two years for which there is a service call out charge.

 

Who takes care of the installation?

Company trained and accredited installers who are directly employed by this company will install your domestic sewage and wastewater treatment system. We do not engage the services of sub-contractors or the local plumber.

Our installer will arrive at your site in a truck which will carry an excavator and all other equipment needed to install your system. Our installer meets with you, or your builder, on the day of installation to discuss the final location of the Worm Farm Waste System.

 

No smells

Our Domestic Septic Systems do not have a septic smell. The liquid which leaves the system is clear, odourless, aerated and contains worm castings and worm eggs which will benefit your garden.

A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems also specialises in commercial septic tank systems and rural septic tanks. Talk to us about your waste processing needs today. Call us on 03 5979 1887.

Good product originally but no service ever since

Rated 1 out of 5

I was sold on the system from the start because I appreciated the environmental aspects of the process. However the tank began to fail less that a year after installation and the vent started to lean. This was straightened but another year on and the tank is continuing to buckle inward. Despite the supposed 10 year warranty they refuse to do anything about it. I think Alan’s original idea was that water runoff caused the damage however once on site he stated that water could not do such damage and said that he would talk to the tank manufacturer. Now they are just saying that rainwater did it so the warranty does not apply. Look at other reviews not just the ones on their own site.

I wish I could write 1000 reviews saying how good this system is and how fantastic the whole team have been they worked in really well with our local council and the process from start to finish has been exemplary.

Over the top

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
Thanks again.

Domestic Septic Systems that are environmentally sustainable

Specialising in worm technology and environmental waste solutions since 1996, A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems is providing domestic homes with a minimal maintenance, no-smell wastewater treatment system to effectively minimise the need for organic waste disposal.

 

Up to 90% less organic waste could leave your site for landfill. Imagine if every household in the country saved up to 90% of the organic waste they dispose into landfill, we would not have the landfill issues we now have.

 

Using a single chamber, non-mechanical system, this simple worm technology processes residential sewage, wastewater and organic waste, converting it into a reusable clear, aerated liquid fertiliser for your plants.

Learn about our Natural Biological Wastewater Treatment Plant for domestic sewage, household wastewater and organic waste

Our eco-friendly Domestic Septic Systems have a huge void capacity for organic waste, unlike other systems that can only accept very small quantities and generally only through an insinkerator. With years of extensive research and development, our natural, eco-friendly septic tank system offers a simple solution which uses minimal energy for disposing of organic waste.

An entry chute is installed above ground allowing for easy disposal of organic kitchen and garden waste including:

  • Dairy
  • Citrus
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Meat
  • Fruit
  • Table scraps
  • Vegetable peelings

Additional food sources for the worms include:

  • Dead heads from annuals
  • Rose Flowers
  • Agapanthus
  • Thistles
  • Dock
  • Patterson’s Curse
  • Capeweed
  • Weeds need the soil shaken from their roots

Other weeds that produce seeds which require containment to prevent spreading will all add an additional food source for the worm.

All wastewater and sewage is processed and kept on site and re-used as an underground liquid fertiliser for your plants. This natural liquid fertiliser is disposed of high in the soil to promote growth in the most biologically active soil area. Worm castings from the system are absorbed into the soil combined with processed wastewater to help your trees, shrubs, roses, annuals, lawn and hedges to thrive.

The liquid fertiliser also contains worm eggs. Washed out of the system, they hatch and the worms live in the disposal areas scouring and aerating the soil. Even heavy clays will be opened up 100mm vertically and 50mm on each side per year by the worms and microbes.
