Sand Filter Treatment Systems

Please note from July 1st 2023 we are not installing new sand filter treatment systems, we will only be supplying maintenance on existing systems.

Geelong Septic Tanks will only provide maintenance on Sand Filter Systems, we are no longer installing new systems.

Sand Filter Treatment Systems offer an environmentally sound effluent treatment method for properties that wish to reclaim the water through an irrigation system.

  • EPA and local council approved systems
  • Under ground systems with no unsightly boxes in your garden
  • One pump that operates only as you use the system for maximum energy efficiency, unlike other treatment systems that need to operate for 6-8 hours a day to aerate the sewerage
  • 100% of the water from the home is recycled onto the garden

Sand Filter Treatment Systems are secondary treatment systems, as they require the primary treatment of effluent by a septic tank. They feature an underground bed of sand, which receives the effluent from the septic tank. Sand is a highly effective, naturally absorptive material that can treat effluent to a very high standard.

The treated effluent passes to a land application system and is of sufficient quality to be used for irrigation.

I felt it appropriate to drop you a short note to sincerely thank you and your team on the recent sand filter system you installed for us. We really appreciated the prompt way in which our initial questions were answered and the subsequent permit application lodgment and processing was completely quickly and with a minimum of fuss. The efficient way in which the installation was performed was a creditto the entire team and the property was  left extremely neat and tidy.

I will have no hesitation in recommending Geelong Septic Tanks to anyone looking for quality workmanship and service.
