How it Works

  1. Wastewater gravity flows to a septic tank where settlement occurs.
  2. Effluent gravity flows into AES pipes in a sand bed.
  3. The vented, fabric-wrapped AES pipes provide a living environment for microbes to break down effluent to a safe level.
  4. After filtering through the pipes and sand, high quality effluent disperses into the soil.

Why Choose AES

20 year warranty on all AES components

Your guarantee of quality on all AES components

AES is suitable for all projects large and small; houses, holiday homes, cafés, motels, seasonal worker accommodation, campgrounds and subdivisions.

It achieves very high treatment levels for your wastewater. Third-party tested in New Zealand and internationally, the AES system tested at the National Testing Facility (OSET-NTP) in Rotorua reduced contaminants to one tenth of the NZ standard for secondary treatment.

AES uses simple technology with no pumps, alarms or maintenance (just the septic tank pump-out when required, about every 5-7 years that most wastewater systems require). It’s the environmentally sustainable system that you can trust to keep your family and environment safe from contaminants, and saves you thousands over its lifetime.

With AES, homeowners avoid the hassles of alarms, noisy or failing pumps, filters to clean or sewage overflow. Using proven US technology AES is installed worldwide.

AES testimonials

Simply the Best Solution

The AES wastewater system at our holiday home has been working well and there has been no obvious problems that other systems have. The benefit of having no mechanical functions with the secondary chamber to the disposal field was an obvious choice for us to go with this system.  There are no pumps to break down or maintain. The economics of its installation costs, its daily running simplicity and no future maintenance makes this system an appealing option for wastewater treatment. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

I have been designing wastewater systems in Southland since 1978 and I have to say that the AES system is quite simply the best solution that I have come across in all that time.  My clients love it because it’s maintenance-free with no pumps or filters.  The AES system provides secondary treatment to an extremely high level so it’s very kind to the environment also.  The feedback I have had from Drainlayers has been positive and they find it very simple to install with very thorough manuals provided by the supplier.

We have gone for something state of the art that will work for a long time, it is a great concept.

There are lots of different systems out there but the reason we have gone with for the Advanced Enviro-Septic system is that you can put it under a hard surface and utilise every bit of land you have got.  With the old sand filtration system you had to isolate a whole area and you lost a lot of available space.

AES is a cost-effective system in comparison to a standard, pump operated secondary treatment system. The project was 15-25% cheaper than if we went with a standard disposal system. It meets high environmental standards for disposal of wastewater, meets regulatory requirements and provides quality and safe accommodation for Department staff and their families. The rising and falling of the effluent inside the pipe enhanced bacterial activity where no other wastewater system offered this functionality. It removes weak points in the system and reduces issues for residents in remote locations.

We were looking for a system with no pumps or ongoing costs, which was simple and straight-forward.  We didn’t want to keep paying for electricity, pumps breaking down etc and having the system checked by so-called professionals every six months.  AES ticked all the boxes.

Dick and Hazel were awesome going the distance dealing with council consents and answering their questions, educating our drainlayer to get him certified to install it.  And the cost of this system was very reasonable. I tell everyone I know how great it is.  Thank you so much.
