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.
