If you want something more than a septic tank, or you have a tricky site, or you want to use your wastewater productively to grow luscious fruit, then we can help you. We’ll match you and your site to the right wastewater system, we know what systems to avoid, and if you need secondary treatment then we can save you money.

We are familiar with a range of simple, passive wastewater products that don’t need pumps, blowers, or electronics. If you have a site that means you need secondary treatment, we can find the right solution for you and your site that won’t cost the earth.

We offer a full wastewater service for rural sites and lifestyle blocks:

  • Matching you and your site to the right wastewater system.
  • Designing the wastewater system size & layout, & obtaining a building consent.
  • Through our partner plumber, installing the system for you.

We match clients wastewater systems that suit them and their sites. These are wastewater systems that are not over spec’d or overpriced.  Our wastewater systems avoid ongoing costs, and support productive plantings and site resiliency.

Our wastewater design service suits people who:

  • View wastewater as a resource, and want to use it to support an edible landscape,
  • Want to do something different from a standard septic tank system, or
  • People with difficult sites (high water table, nearby waterways, or need secondary treatment).

Greywater (from the kitchen, shower/bath, hand-basins, and laundry) can be safely used to support vegetables, berries, and fruit trees. Blackwater (from the toilet) can be safely used to support fruit trees and other tree crops.

$995 to $2495 + travel + GST – Includes:

  • Assessment of site
  • Presentation of suitable wastewater system options (including  maintenance requirements, pros & cons, and indicative costings).
  • System design & preparation of plans & documents required to gain building consent (this does not include council’s consent fees).

The cost of our Assessment & Design Service depends on the complexity of the system chosen. If your project involves separate treatment & soakage systems for greywater & blackwater (recommended for support of edible landscapes) then the service’s cost will be at the higher end.

Once your wastewater system is designed, we can then provide you with a quote to oversee its installation and commissioning it through our partner plumbers.

Ask our in-house wastewater expert and engineer Kama Burwell for more information if you’re interested.

Hey Kama. Your plan is fantastic and has everything on it that I need to lodge consent.
