How is True Water different from other suppliers of home sewage treatment plants (HSTP)?

Our reputation is built on delivering high-quality, reliable, and long-lasting solutions with advanced components that prevent blockages and malfunctions. True Water is your one-stop wastewater shop. This means you only deal with one entity for consultancy, manufacture, installation, and operation. Our systems protect the health of your family, safeguard the environment, and uphold the amenity and value of your property.

Will I be able to install a HSTP if a municipal sewage connection is available in my area?

Your relevant local council will review the property and advise whether a HSTP is allowed. True Water site-specific wastewater solutions provide long-term cost savings when compared to the cost to dispose via municipal sewerage infrastructure; food for thought when considering council rates.

How does a HSTP differ from a traditional septic tank?

HSTP provide multi-chamber tanks to separate waste and undertake different treatment processes. They also contain media within the chambers as a surface for bacteria to grow on and break down the waste matter. Aeration is applied through an air pump which invigorates aerobic bacteria activity. A septic tank only relies on anaerobic bacteria to break down waste and the settlement of solids is the main process. This results in the putrid water leaving the system being full of contaminants and bacteria.

What is special about True Water HSTP?

True Water is accredited to supply, install, service, and maintain FujiClean onsite wastewater treatment technology which is proudly manufactured to meet the performance needs of Australian households. It is cutting-edge Japanese technology that exceeds regulatory requirements while outperforming rival products.  

Are True Water home sewage treatment systems accredited?

Yes, our systems are accredited in every state in Australia as a sewage management facility for use in single-household premises. Our technology has the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certification which means it is consistent with international best practices.

What is the warranty of True Water systems? 

Our wastewater infrastructure is backed by a comprehensive 15-year manufacturer’s warranty for the tank and internal componentry. This includes a two-year warranty for electrical components. This specific performance guarantee is valid only is the system is maintained by our certified maintenance provider. This partnership is based on their specialised training, which improves the performance of our systems and reduces overall lifetime costs.

Are True Water sewage treatment systems suitable for environmentally sensitive areas?

Our team has designed, supplied, and installed systems in areas with high groundwater, domestic bores, and near rivers, lakes, dams and beaches, flood zones, and drinking water catchments.

Do home sewage treatment plants smell?

Our systems are well sealed, odourless, and inaudible which means they can be located as close as 1.5 metres to your home. Our environmental consultants will advise you on the ideal placement of your system.

What happens to the treated water at the end of the process?

The treated water is disposed of through a land application (LAA) or effluent dispersal area (EDA) which is approved by your relevant local council. Most of the time, this is via sub-surface application, irrigation, or trenches located in a designated area on your property. The treated water is highly beneficial by drought-proofing your gardens and lawns.

Will my system overload if I have extra guests or a party?

No. The system will operate normally and is designed to cope with occasional flows well above normal operating capacity. The rate of treatment increases as the flows into the system increase, and vice versa for lower flows.

What happens to my sewage treatment plant if there is a power outage?

Our wastewater technology has an inbuilt storage capacity to ensure continued use until power is restored. Importantly, the system can still receive and process wastewater through its unique gravity transfer operation until power is restored and the system automatically resets.

What products are not able to be disposed of with an onsite sewage treatment plant?

Products that are labelled as hazardous materials should never be disposed of down the drain. Hazardous materials are often labelled as corrosive, toxic, reactive, or flammable. In addition, “disposable” wet wipes, baby wipes, nappies and sanitary products should be disposed of in a garbage system.

What cleaning products should not be used with a HSTP?

Consideration should be given to quantities and strengths of cleaning products more than what can and can’t be used. Antibacterial bleach, ammonium, and caustic products should be used sparingly to avoid disruption to the system’s vital bacteria.
