Are there advantages of having a septic tank system?

Septic systems are underground treatment facilities for managing wastewater in a home, typically comprising a septic tank and a drain field (or leach drain) or soil absorption trench systems.

As a result, it prevents organic matter, scum, or solids like grease, oil, or soil from clogging up the plumbing system of the house. Separating wastewater properly also prevents groundwater contamination and other issues in your property, including health concerns.

Numerous Victorian regional centres rely on Eco-Septic systems and you will find their range of septic tanks in Castlemaine, Bendigo, Ballarat, Echuca, Charlton and everywhere in between. They are essential for residential, commercial and agricultural properties that are not connected to mains wastewater systems, ensuring clean and healthy drinking water and responsible effluent waste management.

It is not only properties that are not connected to council sewerage systems that can benefit from septic tanks, however, but many home and property owners also choose to manage their waste using septic tank systems even in regions that have access to sewerage. That is because septic tank systems offer a range of benefits, including:
