Retrofit Your Existing Septic Tank

With An Eco-Friendly Septic System

We can Retrofit 80%-90% of existing septic tanks and aerated wastewater treatment plants

We have designed a cost effective method to treat sewage, wastewater (grey water) and organic waste in an energy efficient way. For example if you look at the service and energy costs for aerated wastewater treatment plants, or if you are tired of the septic tank smelling, it would be very easy to justify a conversion to a Worm Farm Waste System. For a 4 bedroom house the average cost to run the system is approximately $20 per year. 

This powerful organic septic system will effectively processes sewage, all household sewage, wastewater and organic garbage including food and vegetation, as well as weeds. Combined with naturally occurring organisms, the worm liquid opens up and improves the quality of your soil – enabling you to reuse and recycle it as liquid fertiliser under your garden, lawns and bush land. Independently tested the Worm Farm Waste System is super fast at processing your sewage, wastewater and organic waste. In fact 20 times faster than an normal septic system.

What Do We Need To Retrofit Your System

To retrofit your existing system we require a septic tank chamber that is in good structural condition with a capacity of at least 3000 litres. We would remove the baffles and convert your old system into a eco-friendly Worm Farm Waste System.

The vent pipe can either be:

  • Freestanding coming from the bottom of the chamber
  • Attached to the building if appropriate

The Worm Farm Waste System is not mechanical. We have harnessed Mother Nature by using worms to process your sewage, wastewater and organic waste. If you have a large crowd at your home the system will easily cope, unlike treatment plants which just stop working or the traditional septic tank which smells. Our eco-friendly systems can take high peak loading and additional energy consumption is not required for processing. Let the worms do it naturally. Unlike wastewater treatment plants and septic tanks, our system has the added bonus of processing organic waste. Up to 90% less organic waste could leave your site for landfill if you decide to retrofit.

Some tips on how to operate our system 

  • Recyclables such as plastics, bottles, cans, foil containers, tetra packs etc. require disposal off site.
  • Newspapers and cardboard should also be recycled and not added to the Worm Farm Waste System as they do not break down quickly enough.

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.

Fantastic System

We are hugely impressed with the professional installation of our worm system and with Tony’s polite manner and extra care. Our neighbours have a worm system which they continue to express how clean and easy they run. When we first contacted A and A Worm Farm System. We received prompt emails, replies and answers. Unlike other worm farm system companies. EV and A and A worm farm has been very helpful and thorough from the beginning. Overall, we are very happy and excited to have our own environmentally friendly worm farm system with no ongoing quarterly maintenance costs.

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.
