Whether you're building a new home, extending it, or just looking to upgrade, there are council requirements to consider before installation. Our team take care of the process from start to finish. This includes:
Our technicians are able to assess your site and make recommendations on where best to install your septic or AWTS system, as well as what system is right for your property. As noted by Water NSW, when choosing a location for your tank, it’s important to consider factors like slope grade and stability, as well as soil, your surrounding waterways, site access, the number of people in your household and relevant council regulations. All of these will have an impact on the size and location of where your tank will be installed. Our technicians will help guide you through this process.
Every property will have different requirements for their septic system. A two-bedroom house will undoubtedly require a smaller tank than a 5-bedroom house for example. The right system will depend on what your daily water consumption habits, the number of occupants, and the type of soil your tank is being installed into. Moreover, different systems each have their own advantages. For example, plastic septic tanks are relatively easy to install, while concrete tanks are incredibly durable and long-lasting. Following our initial assessment, our technicians will be able to design a septic system that is ideally suited to your property for years to come.
Septic tanks and wastewater systems are subject to Local Council Regulation. As described by the Office of Local Government, you are required to seek approval for both the installation and operation of the system to ensure it meets the necessary regulatory requirements. To ensure that your septic tank installation and operation run as smooth as possible, we liaise regularly with the relevant council authorities during this approval process.
Before we install your tank, we test it’s working properly so that there are no unexpected surprises. For systems that use either internal or external pumps, we clean water test them ahead of commissioning as well as test and inspect for water tightness.
When it comes time to install your septic tank, our team will ensure that it’s done right from the very beginning. Our professional and licenced plumbers will be able to manage any potential safety hazards that arise and secure any drainage or pump connections. Installing septic tanks takes an experienced hand as well as some serious equipment. With Alstonville Plumbing, we take care of the whole process.
Septic tanks require regular maintenance and servicing to ensure they function properly. You may be legally required to undergo tank maintenance following an inspection, or your system may not be performing as well as it used to. Whatever the problem, we’ll be there to help.
