Experts in Septic System Services
Did you know, that SSA originally started as a servicing and maintenance company?
Yes, that’s right. Before we expanded into other offerings, we serviced and repaired septics systems. That was our bread and butter. And it still is! We continue to be leading experts in the servicing, maintenance and repairs of all types of septic systems.
All Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems (AWTS), also known as treatment plants or treatment systems, must be serviced quarterly by an accredited service technician. This is a requirement of state and local government authorities.
It is also in your best interest to maintain your asset. Just like it is for your car, regular servicing is critical to the proper functioning and longevity of your septic system and it helps to:
- protect your septic system;
- reduce the severity of system faults and the cost of repairs; and
- protect the health of you, your family and the local environment.
Our team of service technicians is comprised of licenced plumbers and A-Grade electricians. All technicians receive ongoing weekly training at SSA’s headquarters as well as external training through accredited training providers for specific activities such as Confined Space repairs and training of treatment systems from various manufacturers.
All of SSA’s service utes are GPS-tracked and stocked with all parts and components and specialised water-testing equipment.
A comprehensive performance history of your system is conveniently recorded through our online database, which enables our service technicians to deliver an enhanced, tailored service and ensures you never lose past service reports again, should you need to provide them to your local council.
