Situated 34 kilometres southeast of Adelaide, this small town came into being in 1839. The laying out of the town took place about 10 years hence. Echunga sparked off a gold rush, when prospectors first discovered veins of gold in 1852. This discovery made the town the first proclaimed goldfield found in South Australia. All diggings ended within a year, with a minor recovery taking place in 1853 and 1854. In 1868, prospectors discovered gold in Jupiter Creek, which proved to be a much larger field.
Part of Battunga Country, Echunga takes its name from the Kaurna word ‘eechungga’, which means ‘close by’ or ‘a short distance’. With a population of over 1,100 people, the town remains sparsely populated. Estimates suggest that nearly 12 per cent of the locals live in rented accommodation. Given these details, it becomes clear that this small town does not have any sewage connections that larger towns and cities typically have. In this scenario, it comes as no surprise that the residents of this town rely on septic tanks for managing their sewage and wastewater. This also makes the residents of Echunga dependent on quality providers of septic tank pumping services.

Septic tanks can be quite efficient in dealing with solid and liquid waste. Their high levels of efficiency mean that Echunga locals will only require septic tank pump outs every three to five years or so. Inefficient septic tanks will require more frequent cleaning. If ignored, the sludge and scum within the tank will continue to accumulate. Over time, the build-up will start rendering the tank inefficient. In addition, it could lead to the manifestation of other problems including:
- A foul sewage smell in your house or the yard
- Slow draining sinks and tubs
- Backed up toilets and sinks
- Wet spots around the drain field area or,
- Bright green grass growing around the drain field area
To eliminate these issues, the people of Echunga engage specialised septic tank cleaning services. The professionals providing these services will not only clean the tank thoroughly. They will also inspect the entire system and its health. If needed, they will highlight areas of repair or replacement.
