What is a pressure sewer system?

A pressure sewer system is an economical and environmentally-friendly way of collecting, transporting and disposing of wastewater from households.

It consists of a pump unit which is connected to a network of pipes along with other pump units in your area. These pipes transfer wastewater to a wastewater treatment facility.

The system collects wastewater from your toilet, sink, shower, bath, dishwasher and washing machine.

  • Loch Sport – costs range from $10,127.38 - $10,742.38
  • Coongulla/Glenmaggie – costs range from $11,020.13 - $11,635.13
