Greene Plumbing are the Approved Agents for sales, excavation, installation and servicing of Aqua Nova, Aqua AdvancedTaylex & Ozzikleen domestic WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS and the HIPPO industrial WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM. We are currently an approved provider for the Surf Coast Shire for plumbing, drain clearing, roofing and septic servicing for council assets.

We are experienced, licenced plumbers and a one-stop shop to deliver, excavate, install and service your wastewater treatment system.

Greene Plumbing can design, purpose build, supply, install and service septic treatment systems for any situation. Our treatment plants have been used in a wide range of domestic and commercial applications from household backyards to farms, mining sites, yacht clubs, caravan parks and council vehicle wash-down bays.

A Home Sewage Treatment Plant treats all wastewater generated in a household, including sewage (black water) that is discharged from the toilets and bidets and the sullage (grey water) that is discharged from kitchen sinks, hand basins, laundry troughs, washing machines, dishwashers, showers and baths. It treats the wastewater in an environmentally sustainable way by making use of the naturally occurring bacteria that is present in the wastewater. The system is designed to hold the polluted/degraded water in specially designed compartments where various types of bacteria can flourish, and in doing so, “treat” the water, naturally, without dangerous chemicals or additives.

We are licenced plumbers with many years experience installing and servicing septic treatment plants and grey water systems. Aqua Nova (two tank system) & Aqua Advanced (one tank system) septic systems incorporate light weight, plastic tanks, which are easy to handle and install, especially on steep or difficult sites. We can work with you to design your septic system and irrigation system to best suit your site, your garden and shire recommendations, and can also create an individual servicing program to meet your specific circumstances, your Shire and EPA requirements.

We provide regular scheduled servicing of your system, according to EPA and Shire guidelines. Our service round is scheduled quarterly in February, May, August and November, or we can tailor your servicing to your specific situation. Should your septic system need urgent attention, then please don’t hesitate to call us anytime!
