The Septic Tank

A septic tank is an on-site, underground sewage treatment solution for homes, rural properties, businesses and anywhere you need a wastewater treatment system. In many areas of rural and regional Australia these properties are not connected to the mains sewage system for several reasons. Septic tanks are constructed to allow the solid waste to settle away from the liquid, and combined with an anaerobic process, provide efficient wastewater removal.

In rural situations, across Queensland, New South wales, Victoria and Tasmania, the resulting treated liquid effluent may be disposed of in a septic drain field, while in other cases, specialised vacuum trucks may be needed to remove the waste from the tank.

An Econocycle septic tank is an underground chamber made of concrete through which domestic wastewater (sewage) flows for basic treatment. Septic tank systems are a type of simple onsite sewage facility (OSSF). They can be used in areas that are not connected to a sewerage system, such as rural areas, remote fire stations and country holiday homes.


The biggest factor in understanding the right septic tank for your needs is capacity. If you have a small family home with two people living in it, then a smaller, concrete tank is adequate. However, with a business, or a large family residence with 10 people living together, then a large capacity septic tank would be needed. The larger tanks are often made of concrete for added strength and durability.


Septic tanks are commonly installed underground, and provide well sealed and effective operation, producing little to no odour and low-maintenance reliability. Quality systems like those from Eco-Septic across Queensland, New South wales, Victoria and Tasmania feature alarms that warn of flow problems or other issue that require attention, and that, combined with regular inspections and cleaning, ensure trouble free use for any home.


All maintenance should be carried out by specialist technician. Your Septic Tank must be cleaned and serviced regularly cleaned to remove build-ups and to clear the septic tank. Likewise, the septic system is regularly checked for leaks and clogs. You should engage a company that not only has a quarterly service arrangement but also has the decades of experience

It’s easy to tell when your tank may need a check-up (each unit is fitted with an alarm) so get in contact with trained septic tank specialists in your area.
