As a property owner with a septic tank system, you are responsible for maintaining the on-site waste management operation to protect the surrounding waterways and adhere to local council requirements. You are responsible for:
Septic tank secondary treatment is an important step in the wastewater treatment process as it helps to ensure that effluent discharged into the environment is safe and compliant with the relevant legislation. This is achieved by using a secondary treatment system which helps to break down waste products even further and remove additional contaminants from the effluent. Overall, septic tank secondary treatment is a vital step to ensure a safe, clean environment.
Septic Sand Systems are a great choice to provide effective secondary treatment for your septic tank. Sand is an excellent filtering agent, which means that when the effluent passes through the sand bed, an effective secondary treatment process occurs. After being treated in the septic tank, the effluent is distributed evenly throughout the sand bed and provided with additional treatment, ensuring wastewater is properly treated before entering into the drainage system.
Microorganisms in the sand and gravel layers help to treat the effluent. These microbes in the soil absorb nutrients from the wastewater while the sand separates and removes the solid particles. This process improves the quality of water, making it suitable for recycling and reuse.
The Advanced Enviro-Septic system (AES) is a great solution for wastewater secondary treatment. AES systems are incredibly cost-efficient as it harnesses the power of nature's processes and requires minimal maintenance. It is highly efficient in removing hazardous contaminants and suspended solids from wastewater. It has also shown that AES systems can remove 99% of impurities from wastewater without using electricity! AES is also easy to maintain and budget-friendly due to the absence of mechanical parts.
Septic absorption trenches (also known as leach drains) are perfect for draining wastewater from a home or building, and are becoming increasingly popular amongst property owners.

Absorption trenches are easy to maintain when they’re new, however, over time, they are prone to failure, developing cracks or blockages and they may need to be replaced or repaired altogether.
