Taking Care of Your New Septic System

Moving to a new house means new neighbours and a new septic system. Do you know what’s the best way to make a good impression?  Make sure your new neighbours never have to smell your septic. 

The best way to do that is with a little preventative maintenance. Wastewater systems rely on beneficial bacteria which digest waste and clean your wastewater. The chemicals of modern living, temperature fluctuations and usage patterns disrupt the ecosystem within your septic tank and kill the beneficial bacteria within. 

To remain healthy and in sufficient populations to effectively digest waste, the bacteria in your tank require a little help. A biological stimulant based additive like EcoCare Activator will maintain the optimal biological conditions for bacteria to thrive, extend the life of your system and reduce the need for pump outs and expensive repairs. 

These savings and peace of mind knowing your septic’s in great condition cost as little as $5 per week.

Our wastewater consultants will learn a little about your system, recommend an appropriate preventative maintenance plan and give you advice on taking care of your system.

What makes our products different?

Most septic, AWTS or greywater treatment products add bacteria or enzymes to make up for low bacteria populations. While we do provide specialty bacteria, we know that the underlying cause of most wastewater issues is poor biological conditions within the system that kill the bacteria necessary for waste breakdown.

EcoCare’s Biological Stimulant Technology introduces select nutrients, minerals and amino acids that improve the biological conditions, overcome the damage caused by everyday household chemicals and allow beneficial bacteria to maintain healthy populations. This is what allows septic systems to operate at peak performance and minimises the need for pump outs and expensive repairs.

I would like to congratulate EcoCare Australia on their products. Since I have been using them in my septic tank, the problems of the past have disappeared. The previous years of blocked drains, over-flowing, seepage in tanks, etc; have gone. Bad odours and reoccurring problems have ceased.

By using EcoCare’s products to unblock our drains and for general cleaning …we pushed out the need for septic tanks to be pumped out by double to triple the normal period.

Martin Blake

We have two septic systems, both treated with EcoCare. Systems have remained trouble free and have not required to be pumped out since we started using the product 12 years ago.. An excellent product.

Bryant Ham

Provides the result that we hope for quickly and easily. No mess, no fuss, no smell, in fact the smell from our grease trap disappears. Our system has not been pumped out a decade or more.
