What are Aerobic Systems?

Appearing in the last ten years, aerobic systems are a new technology to remove septic waste. Depending on the manufacturer, aerobic septic waste can come under a variety of different names, such as Biocycle, Eco cycle and Enviro cycle. Most of the tanks used for the system are 7500 litres in volume, and according to manufacturer guidelines need to be emptied every four years. The aerobic system is a smaller scale sewage treatment that is similar to the septic tank system, however uses an aerobic process for digestion rather than just the anaerobic process.

Tips for Cleaning and Maintaining Your Grease Traps

Washing up after a meal is not one of the most looked forward to activities in many households throughout South Australia. However, many people often forget that their kitchen sinks are useful for transporting the wash water to the drains, not scraps of rubbish. As such, it is hardly surprising that many people end up pouring waste cooking oil down the drain. Or, they could even scrape the waste off their plates into the sink. This practice could be quite costly over time.

Prevent Septic Pump-Outs with Regular Septic Tank Treatment

The South Australia Water Authority (or SA Water) is responsible for collecting and treating wastewater in the larger towns of South Australia, such as Adelaide. But many small townships abound throughout the state of South Australia. These townships cannot reap the benefits of availing the services offered to major towns by SA Water. So, the local councils in these townships bear the responsibility of managing the wastewater generated in these townships. They typically achieve this via Septic Tank Effluent Disposal Schemes (STEDS).
