Just getting some rough figures together for building. As I haven't got a contract on the land yet, I don't actually want to start ringing up and getting exact quotes yet.
Basically I've been told to allow $8k for a wastewater system.
Is this far off the mark or is it the typical extras, extras, extras etc story?
Thanks for any help.
P.S. Land is in Gold Coast City Council

Can't really comment on your area. I am assuming you are talking septic/greywater disposal. In Perth, we were told by neighbours to allow $8K to $15K for the system because we would need a special system to comply with council etc etc.
We paid $3800.
The guy who did it told us that it was not required to get the expensive (and high maintenance systems) and he was right. Our nieghbours paid something like $12K for theirs and were really annoyed that they wasted their money. It can be really worth it to do your homework on this.
As for stormwater, I dug some holes and put in the appropriate kit which was pretty cheap as i remember.
Hope this helps

It really depends on the product you buy, ours was approx. $5500 plus extra plumbing to house. But there are many more expensive units around that may or may not be needed. We got ours from quality tanks. Something to keep in mind is any restrictions your block may have that will force you into a more expensive model or restrictions in placing the units where you want to. Things that do this, that we have seen and experienced in our area (brisbane). The dispersion trenches 6m off boundary fences and house ect. 30m from creek lines (top of creek bank) and the size of the dispersion area to number of bedrooms and soil type.
Hope this helps

consider putting in wall WC instead of robe in the same bedroom, then it might be doable to hook up to the existing piping.

Sewer of course. We aren't barbarians. I believe it's "downstream". (Isn't everything normally downstream of vent pipe to make the vent work effectively?) In the wall…
