Septic & Wastewater

Whether you need a new septic system, or maintenance on your existing septic or wastewater system, our team from Trent’s Plumbing & Gas can help.

We carry out installations of a wide range of different wastewater treatment systems and septic systems throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula including in Victor Harbor, Port Elliot, Middleton, Goolwa, Yankalilla and Normanville.

New wastewater and septic systems

If you’re in need of a new wastewater or septic system we’ll be happy to provide you with a quote.

You are likely to also need approval from the local council before you can begin installation, so we recommend the following steps be taken if you need a new installation or a replacement wastewater or septic system:

  1. Contact a wastewater engineer who can prepare plans for a suitable system for your home and business.  This will consider the site, the location, and also your lifestyle needs and what needs to be connected to your system.
  2. Once the engineer prepares the plans these will need to be sent to the local council for approval.
  3. Contact us to arrange a quote.  We will need to see a copy of your stamped approved plans to prepare your quote.
  4. If you accept our quote, the job can then be scheduled.

We can assist you with a wide range of systems including Advanced Enviro-Septic systems, soakage, septic tanks, aerobic wastewater systems, Envirocycle systems and a range of others.

Blocked septic

If you have a blocked septic or wastewater pipes then we are happy to attend to investigate and attempt to clear the blockage.

If you have a septic system, we will usually ask you if you have had your septic pumped out lately.  If not, we recommend you contact the team from Fleurieu Septic Pumping, as we’re not able to pump out your septic if it is full.

We use a range of equipment to clear your septic blockage.  This may include using a hydrojet, which relies on strong water hoses to clear the blockage.  If we find tree roots are a problem, we may use a camera to inspect the severity of the issue, and may also recommend that you replace any pipes that have been damaged by the tree roots.

In some instances, if your septic of wastewater system is blocked it may be caused by failure of all or part of your system.  If this is the case you may need to consider replacement, as, in some instances, parts of your system may not be able to be repaired.
