Conventional Septic Systems have been the most common on-site effluent disposal system in Australia with the 1st system installed in Adelaide in 1906.
It is still recognised as the simplest and most cost effective option with the exception of its Achilles heel being progressive failure. (The blocking of the receiving soil with suspended solids and dead biomat).
During the 90s the 1st AWTS system was introduced. The perception that the engineering of a complicated mechanical system would improve the community health and environmental outcomes is being debated more and more as these systems age.
Councils play an important role in realising a good Community Health and Environmental outcome. Today, cost of living and affordability impact must be considered due to the major negative impact it is having on these important outcomes.
The Advanced Enviro-Septic now provides the opportunity for a long term, low cost and high quality community health and environmental outcome.
Over 100yrs of knowledge is applied in AS1547 and it is time to bring the SEPTIC BACK as the best option in all soil types with good land application design and installation practice. Progressive failure is a thing of the past with the Advanced Enviro-septic.
