Septic Tanks Melbourne

Melbourne is primarily known as a regional urban area. As Australia’s most populated city, a growing number of homeowners are opting to live outside the city centre, primarily in rural and semi-rural settings. Living in these areas can present some challenges when it comes to accessing the council sewer system. Luckily, Taylex provides an excellent solution as the leading home sewage treatment system for off-sewer homes in Melbourne.

Traditional septic tanks are considered outdated technology. In pursuit of better environmental and health outcomes, Taylex has been at the forefront of developing Advanced Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems (AWTS). Nowadays, very few old-style ‘Septic tanks’ are installed in Australia. Both regulators and homeowners value the peace of mind, economic benefits, and environmental advantages of Advanced Secondary wastewater treatment systems. Unlike traditional septic tanks, we employ the latest modern technology to purify water from household waste. Recycled water produced by a Taylex system can be used for on-site irrigation before safely returning to the natural water cycle.

What Do We Offer Melbourne?


Although traditional style septic tanks are less common nowadays and are not installed as frequently as before, there are still certain situations that call for these systems. Because of this, we also manufacture a range of traditional style septic tanks, ranging from 4,000L to 22,000L. As standard procedure, each of these tanks come with an internal baffle wall, and one of our Taylex filters. These tanks are constructed using high quality concrete, and if that doesn’t convince you, they also come with our remarkable 15-year warranty to ensure your peace of mind.


The Taylex Advanced Secondary Wastewater Systems act like a mini municipal treatment plant. They harness the good bacteria that naturally exist in your home’s wastewater and, through a process, consume waste and organic matter.

By installing a Taylex system, you can recycle your household wastewater and obtain clean and clear water for irrigating your yard. The treated water produced by our Taylex Advanced Secondary Wastewater System is 65 times cleaner than septic tank effluent with 99.99% bacterial disinfection.
