On-site consultancy to ascertain suitability for a greywater reuse system.
Supply of Installation plans for your plummer to install.
Full design and implementation of approved greywater system.
Supply of products such as filters and greywater diverter.
Typically, a fee of $110 is charged for a consultant to visit your home and offer advice about all the possibilities of wastewater and greywater reuse.
Usually some estimation of various costs for each system is given and a range of options for the supply and installation of reuse systems is suggested.
Preparation of plans for local council
A minimum fee of $275 is charged for the preparation of scale drawings and a written submission to a local council for a greywater reuse system.
This fee includes a site visit where measurements of block size, house and other buildings size and location, distance to boundaries, and position of tanks, subsurface trenches and/or garden beds for drippers are taken.
It is very helpful if you can supply a plan of the house and block showing dimensions and other details.
The written submission nominally lists the specifications for the proposed system, the calculations for the length of piped trench or size of the irrigation area and brief notes about the system relevant to the application.
The “Application to Construct or Install an Apparatus for the Treatment of Sewage” form is also completed and forwarded to the property owner, so that they can submit this to their local council.
