Who We Are
What Is an Envirocycle?
Envirocycle is a unique system developed specifically to recycle domestic and commercial wastewater from the bathroom, kitchen and laundry and treat it in an underground tank constructed of concrete to a purity approved by relevant health authorities throughout Australia.
Natural ProcessThe Envirocycle method for treating sewage and sullage from domestic and commercial developments is based on the age old principal of separating solids from liquids allowing anaerobic bacteria (which does not require oxygen) and aerobic bacteria (which requires oxygen) to digest the waste.
This natural process of treatment has been further enhanced by utilizing an Ultra Violet Disinfection process in either domestic or commercial applications. This process is available in the Model 10NR. All other wastewater treatment systems utilize chlorine.
Monitoring SystemA monitoring system is located within the dwelling that alerts the owner in the unlikely event of a malfunction of any mechanical component.
IrrigationBy means of a spray system to selected areas of your garden or paddock as appropriate. The treated water is dispersed through irrigation lines and spray points. In this way nutrients are returned to nature in a controlled manner. This ensures that designated areas of your garden receive the benefit of regular watering.
Envirocycle® caters for both, Domestic and Commercial wastewater treatment application, so whatever your needs or capacities, Envirocycle will meet your requirements.

Things To Keep In Mind
Your Irrigation area.
Your Service Agreement.
If you have any problems or questions contact our service department.
Cleaning products that specify "Safe for Septics".
Things To Avoid
The use of garbage disposal units in sinks when disposing of foreign objects into the system such as newspapers, sanitary napkins, plastics etc.
Use strong caustic, alkalis, oils, acids, bleaches, disinfectants or chemical detergents. These items kill the purifying bacteria, cause bad odours and damage the workings of the system.
Exceed the maximum design load or subject the system to hydraulic shock loads.
Your wash loads over six or seven days where possible.
Switch off power because system will fail.

IN THE HOUSE
Reduce foaming by adding a tablespoon of crushed bath soap (leftovers) to your washing powder. After wiping down tiles, sinks, and baths, rinse the cloth in a bucket then discard the contents in the yard, not in the system. When the alarm sounds PLEASE refer to the fault finding section in the handbook before calling us.
THIS WILL HELP REDUCE YOUR MAINTENANCE COSTS.
