Septic Upgrades

Septic Upgrades

Upgrading a Septic Tank system involves the deletion of the old tanks, and the diverting of all their essential plumbing into a brand new system.

Older systems which use traditional absorption trenches become increasingly prone to troublesome blockages and repeated failure.  Additionally, these older systems can become less efficient over time as tree roots enter the trench system, or ground movement causes misalignment.

The upgraded systems used by Maxfield’s Wastewater bring all of your septic processes into one tank, named a Home Sewage Treatment Plant.

With all our Septic Tank Upgrades we will develop you a site-specific solution. We’re not locked to a particular brand or system, and our breadth of options enables us to provide a system that caters to your needs.

What’s The Benefit Of Upgrading Your Septic Tank?

Upgrading your septic tank saves you time, money, and inconvenience.

When a Home Sewage Treatment Plant is used, the need for an underground absorption trench is eliminated. This removes the external factors that cause older systems to break down.

Furthermore, the use of an HSTP will enable you to bring the number of tanks on your property down to one.

The reduction of the number of tanks on your property will save you money in the long run, as you no longer need to pay for services such as having a grease trap frequently emptied. Many of the additional services required to keep older systems running are labour-intensive, and can be costly and a major hassle to organise with a contractor.

How Do You Know It’s Time To Upgrade Your Septic Tank?


The biggest telltale sign that it’s time to upgrade your septic tank system is if your current set up is producing noticeable odours.

Soggy or damp patches of grass

If you’re experiencing wet patches around your tanks or absorption trenches, then it’s time to investigate an upgrade immediately.

Toilets flushing slowly

If your toilets (or any other appliances within the home) are taking an eternity to empty, this could be a sign it’s time for you to investigate an upgrade of your current system.

You can’t use your bathroom at all!

This is the doomsday scenario. If your bathroom is completely unusable because you cannot drain wastewater, then you need to have an expert take a look at your septic system immediately.
