Do you have any helpful hints?

  • Avoid using strong acids, alkalis, oils and chemicals in your toilet, bathroom, laundry and kitchen (they can kill off the working bugs);
  • Do not connect your spa bath to the system.  Use only biodegradable detergents with low phosphorus in your laundry and kitchen.
  • If possible spread your washloads in stages over several days; This will avoid flooding the system with large amounts of water at one time.
  • If possible avoid the use of your washing machine and showers at the same time.
  • Do not use “anti-bacterial” products such as bleaches, commercial cleansers and hair dyes as these can interfere with the bacterial breakdown in the system.  Do not flush any sanitary items down the toilets.
  • Refer to our downloads for more detailed handy hints and tips on how to get the most out of your system.

In un-sewered areas what is the best alternative for waste water treatment?

Society is increasingly demanding a pollution-free lifestyle and there are justified and growing concerns regarding the long term effects of waste disposal. Out dated septic tanks with adsorption trenches or expensive pump out services have now been replaced with a far superior solution called Aerated Waste Water Treatment Systems (AWTS). The Garden Master “Elite” System is a proven AWTS which offers real advantages in that it accepts all waste water from the bathroom, toilet, kitchen and laundry and processes it into clear odour free water which is then irrigated onto the garden.
