Factors to consider when installing a septic tank

  • Location of the septic system
  • 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. Talk to your local wastewater specialists for recommendation on the system suitable for your home.
  • Size of the property
  • Type of soil
  • Level of water table
  • Wastewater produced in your property
  • What kind of system do you need?

Benefits of septic systems

Septic tank systems offer a range of advantages including:

  • Long-lasting: If correctly installed and well-maintained, septic tanks and the associated absorption trenches provide a long-lasting wastewater solution.
  • Eco-friendly : The water used in your home is safely filtered back into the local environment.
  • Chemicals : No harsh chemicals are needed, as the natural bacteria in a septic tank helps to breakdown the sewage.
  • Property size : Septic tank systems can be designed to suit properties of all shapes and sizes.
  • Cost-effective : Septic tanks are cost-effective and have low operating costs, as minimal maintenance is required to keep the water treatment system in top condition.
  • Pumping out/Cleaning : Septic tanks only require cleaning and pumping out service every 3 to 5 years, depending on the wastewater demands of your property.

Septic tank installation cost

The cost of septic tank installation depends on a range of things like the size of the septic tank, location, approval from the local council. It is best to talk to a wastewater treatment system professional as they will be able to assist in providing an accurate cost.
