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.
