There are a number of factors you should take into account when choosing the right HSTP for your home. All systems must meet a standard requirement to be sold on the market. There are different levels of effluent quality that needs to be adhered to depending on the location of your property and also proximity to dams and watercourses. There are 4 recognised grades of wastewater in Australia:
- Primary Effluent - Septic Tanks - No real treatment of effluent
- Secondary Effluent
- Advanced Secondary Effluent
- Advanced Secondary with Nutrient Reduced Effluent
Numbers 2, 3 & 4 require treatment plants to achieve these higher grades of effluent. Below are the Australian and New Zealand (AS/NZS) Standards levels that are applied to the final effluent for classification of the Effluent Standard into the various categories. The lower the number, the better the quality, the less hazardous the water is and the lower the pollution risk it will be to the environment, your family, your pets and your neighbours.
We are lucky to have access to a whole range of these. Size, budget, access, space restrictions and personal preference all need to be taken into account when deciding on your HSTP. everGREEN wastewater
