A standard Aqua Nova® has two tanks. The first tank allows for the separation of solids and greases, while in the second tank the settled wastewater is aerated and clarified. When required, the clarified wastewater is disinfected before being pumped to the irrigation area.
The Aqua Nova® is proudly manufactured in Australia by an Australian Family Owned Company. No royalties are paid to overseas companies and all profits are retained in Australia.
Two tank systems provide a barrier between raw waste water and the treated effluent. This results in a safe, reliable system. The raw waste water and clean recycled water will never mix.
Aqua Nova® manufactures several different models that achieve different qualities of treated effluent. This provides our customers with a choice that allows our systems to be installed in most locations in Australia. The minimum water quality requirement will have a BOD5 and Suspended Solids of than less than 20mg/L and 30mg/L respectively. Disinfection, filtration and/or membrane systems can be fitted to provide water quality of less than 10mg/L BOD5, 10mg/L Suspended Solids and 10CFU/100ml E.Coli. Nutrient reduction systems are also available.
We recommend that all Aqua Nova® systems are serviced by one of our local distributors. Our distributors are trained for servicing Aqua Nova®systems and will work efficiently to keep your wastewater treatment system in tip top condition.
As with all of your assets, your Aqua Nova® requires servicing and maintenance. A trained service professional will help to keep your system operating at its highest standard. Government regulators require the system to be serviced every 3-months.
Standard cleaning products usually cause no problem to the operation of an Aqua Nova®. As the system is biological, owners must use of bleaches and disinfectants sparingly.
Treated effluent can only be used to irrigate the area specified by planning documents.
When operating and maintained correctly, the noise that comes from an Aqua Nova® is barely noticeable.
Systems that are operated as per the Owner’s Manual and are appropriately maintained will not smell.
The system should not be turned off at any time. So long as the system is on, you can have extended periods of non-usage without causing any disruption to the system.
No. Lids cannot be hidden underground as they are used to provide safe access to the system during maintenance.
We produce Polymer Pump Wells with volumes of 250L or 450L that can be fitted with risers of up to 600mm and can be readily installed behind our polymer septic tank for sites that require the pumping of septic water to trenches or disposal areas/fields.
We also offer a wide range of concrete Pump Wells that have volumes of 1000L, 1600L, 3000L, 4000L and 6000L. Each of these tanks can be fitted with Class A, Class B or Class D Lids. This variety provides us with a range of configurations to service a variety of applications. Systems may be configured with a settling tank to allow for the removal of materials that may damage the pumps and result in premature failure that may not be covered by the warranty.
Systems may be supplied with different pump types including Vortex, Grinder or Vane Pumps. Both single-phase and three -phase pumps are available for duty /standby configurations.
All of our controllers are supplied with visual and audible alarm systems which satisfy the requirements of most regulatory authorities. Many of the larger pump configurations are supplied with specific controllers. These controllers have been configured for the operation of the specific pump supplied in the Pump Well, ensuring safe and reliable operation.
All Everhard pump wells are tested to ASNZS1546.1. As with all of our products, our customers must ensure appropriate duty of care is taken with the selection of our products, and urge customers to engage appropriate professionals for the selection of the correct tank configuration and pump selection.
In some areas of Australia, it may also be necessary to attain council approval prior to installing a Pump Well. Persons installing our Pump Wells must ensure that all necessary precautions are made to prevent hydraulic uplift and ensure adequate space is available for pump and tank maintenance.
