What is a home sewage treatment plant?

A home sewage treatment plant is a small-scale wastewater treatment system used in homes and small businesses.

A home sewage treatment plant, or an HSTP, is a system which treats both greywater and blackwater in one convenient space. It is roughly based on community sewage treatment arrangements, however, is condensed down into a smaller system to be suitable for one household instead of a whole area or street.

How does a home sewage treatment plant work?

A home sewage treatment plant works by collecting wastewater in a tank. The tank is a watertight chamber that is typically made of concrete, fibreglass, or plastic.

A HSTP operates by allowing natural bacteria to treat wastewater in an environmentally safe and secure way, without adding chemicals or nasties to the process. The greywater and blackwater are transferred between different chambers, allowing the separation of solids, the addition of anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that don’t need oxygen to survive) and the aeration of the liquids. Once this is complete, the water is environmentally safe and can be used in tasks such as watering your garden without being dangerous to you or those around you.

Why do I need a home sewage treatment plant?

A home sewage treatment plant is necessary to treat wastewater before it is discharged into the environment. This is important because untreated wastewater can contain harmful bacteria and viruses that can contaminate water sources and cause illness.

HSTPs are environmentally friendly options that allow wastewater, once treated, to be reused safely in the environment. They are a beneficial option for the treatment of wastewater in an eco-safe way, and you get to actively use the finished product whilst having a smaller impact on the environment than council wastewater systems.

How do I know if I need a home sewage treatment plant?

If you live in a rural area or if your home is not connected to a municipal sewer system, then you likely need a home sewage treatment plant. If you are unsure whether or not you need a septic system, we recommend that you contact your local council.

How much does a home sewage treatment plant cost?

The cost of a home sewage treatment plant varies depending on the size of the system, the location, the type of materials used, and many other factors. However, the average cost of installing an HSTP can be between $7,000 and $15,000*. (*Note - this price is a guide only.)

When should I have my home sewage treatment plant serviced?

It is recommended that you have your home sewage treatment plant serviced every three to five years. This will ensure that the system is working properly and that there are no clogs or other problems.

I'm concerned about the environment. Is a home sewage treatment plant good for the environment?

Yes, a home sewage treatment plant is good for the environment because it treats wastewater before it is discharged into the surrounding area. This helps to protect water sources from contamination and prevents pollution.

How do I choose the right home sewage treatment plant for my needs?

There are many factors to consider when choosing a home sewage treatment plant. Some of the things you should consider include the size of your home, the number of people in your household, and the type of soil on your property. You should also consider the climate of your area and the amount of rainfall you typically receive.
