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. Call us today to see if your current system is able to be converted.

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.

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.

After wrestling with our local council we finally got the permit. It's been a bit of a journey but well worth the effort. From start to finish the team at A&A have been absolutely amazing. 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. Thank you so much, especially to Alan who was so wonderful to Doug when he installed our system. Doug loved him . Thank you again.

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.
