We Design site specific Domestic Septic Systems and assist with council permits 

For domestic 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 a cheque made payable to your council for the permit fee. 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.

I would recommend this system to anyone

We just didn’t want to run with a standard septic storage system given the problems that can sometimes associate themselves with this method of waste collection. The A&A Worm Farm Waste Treatment System has been absolutely brilliant. Once installed you barely know it’s there and the small compost bin that provides access to it blends perfectly into the surrounds. But more importantly it works. All of our degradable wastes make their way into the tank and are never heard of again. There has never been any smell nor maintenance issues and we have even used the treated water to get our garden flourishing beautifully. I would recommend this system to anyone who is looking for an efficient and effective system to treat household waste. How simple and effective, this system just works. No mess, no fuss, no smell and no maintenance – there couldn’t be a simpler way to treat household waste. This system is remarkable, the worms just eat through almost anything and everything and the byproduct – water that can be used to irrigate your garden. Environmentally this system is so sustainable yet so simple – more people should be using it to reduce our impact on the Global Environment. In three years we have had not one incident and why would we, the only moving parts are the worms! This system has been so efficient and caters just as easily when there are only a few people in the house right up to when the masses arrive and settle in for the week.

On time and on budget

Thank you for the installation of my new worm farm, on time and on budget! Firstly, I must thank you for sending such wonderful technician to carry out the installation. The installer was a delight to have on our site, he was courteous, co-operative, accommodating and above all extremely safety conscious. It was a pleasure to see such a professional approach to ones work, something that is sadly lacking in today’s workforce. Please convey my sincere thanks to him for the excellent job he did whilst he was with us. The worm farm itself is a very nice package, nestled neatly in an inconspicuous corner of the lot, great design and aesthetically pleasing. We will hopefully be building 6-9 small self-contained cottages over the next two years and will most definitely be considering worm farms for these. Thanks again for making this a most enjoyable experience. Cheers, thanks for everything.

Fantastic System

Domestic Septic Systems that are environmentally sustainable systems for your home

 

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 domestic septic systems 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 treatment plan 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
  • Roses
  • Agapanthus
  • Thistles
  • Docks
  • Patterson’s Curse
  • Capeweed
  • Weeds need the soil shaken from their roots

And 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.
