How does a septic system work?

  • The wastewater from your home is collected in a septic tank
  • Solid waste settles down on the bottom and form a sludge layer while oils and grease move to the top and form scum
  • Effluent or the middle layer exits the septic tank and flows to the absorption trench
  • Wastewater gets filtered in the soil; nutrients, viruses and bacteria are absorbed by the soil and cleaner water gets discharged to the groundwater
  • The bacteria present in the septic system breaks down the sewage and absorb the harmful chemicals.

How much does a Septic Tank Cost?

The cost of the septic tank can depend on various factors. Septic tanks are available in various materials - plastic, concrete, steel, fibreglass, etc.

The cost of the installation depends on:

  • Size of the septic system - As a rough guide, in accordance with AS/NZS 1546.1:2008, a house with 4-6 bedrooms must have a tank that is a minimum of 4,500 litres in size if they produce ‘regular’ levels of wastewater
  • Type of the tank - septic, aerobic treatment unit, sand filter system, etc
  • Location of the tank (underground or on-ground)
  • Family size
  • Size and Location of the property

Before the installation of the septic tank, you will need approval from the local council to use the septic system. Our experts will assess your soil and groundwater conditions to recommend an appropriate septic system. From council approvals to installation, repairs to annual maintenance, we can help you every step of the way.

Express Wastewater Solutions provides septic tank installation options for residential and commercial properties across South East Queensland. We can install all types of septic tanks - concrete, fibreglass and polyethylene. Discuss your requirements with us and we will be happy to help.

Benefits of Septic Systems

Septic systems are low-maintenance with only desludging required every 3-5 years. Apart from that, you will need to ensure harmful chemicals aren’t entering the system.

If correctly installed and well-maintained, septic tanks and the associated absorption trenches provide a long-lasting wastewater solution.

Discuss your septic system requirements with us and we can help you select a system suiting your budget.

Can I install my own septic tank?

Although there are DIY guides and videos related to the installation of a septic tank, we strongly recommend that you do not complete this task yourself.
