Why your tank needs servicing
If you are building in a rural area or holiday resort area, you may find there are no sewerage services. In such situations dwellings have to be serviced by an “onsite domestic wastewater system” to treat all household wastewater flows from the toilet, bathroom and laundry.
• Lifestyle blocks
• Rural residential subdivisions
• Coastal or lakeside holiday areas
• High country cabins/huts

Oasis provides instruction manuals and will also undertake routine servicing checks. Where a treatment plant is part of your system, your District or Regional Council will require you to enter into a “service contract”. A service contract provides a minimum six monthly maintenance visit, cleaning any effluent filters and inspecting control systems. The contract will also provide a callout service for emergencies such as equipment failure or overload and will carry out a periodic check of effluent quality where required by the consent conditions. Your onsite wastewater system Loading Certificate will set out the design criteria and the limitations associated with use of the system. It includes:
- System capacity (number of persons and daily flow)
- Summary of design criteria
- The location of and use of the ‘reserve area’
- Use of water efficient fittings, fixtures, or appliances;
- Allowable variation from design flows (peak loading events)
- Consequences of changes in loading (due to varying wastewater characteristics)
- Consequences of overloading the system
- Consequences of under loading the system
- Operation, maintenance and performance monitoring
