Secondary Wastewater Treatment Systems

If your property requires a onsite effluent system, then you have a number of options available to you. This will depend on your site, the size of your home and your preferences. We know it can seem a little overwhelming, but this is what we do. Please feel free to give us a call if you need some advice or click here for more info on your wastewater treatment options.

Where to Start

It all starts with you giving us a call or contacting us to discuss your project. We can help you get your drainage project started.

How Much will it Cost?

After inspection of your site we can provide you with a free upfront drainage quote on all work to be done. That way, you can be sure that there are no nasty budget blowing surprises and you can cost your project effectively. Book in your Free Quote and Site Visit.

Choosing a Wastewater System

Onsite Effluent disposal systems are broken down into Primary and Secondary systems. Your site will determine which system you will need. Click here for more information on what to do next.

Connecting to Council Sewer (from Septic tank)

Many of the homes in rural Whangarei are still on an older septic tank system. As Council upgrades the public sewer system you will have the opportunity to connect to the new sewer line. We offer a full house service including emptying your old septic, decommissioning to regulation, installing your new drainage and connection. Most connections can be done within a day so you won’t be left without a toilet. Find out more here.

Wanting to Subdivide your Property?

With the new Council rezoning, many Whangarei property owners have the option to subdivide their properties. As part of the process, each new section will require it’sown connection to wastewater services. This work can only be done by Council Registered Drainlayers, an accreditation which Woods Plumbing and Drainage holds. Find out more about the process here.
