New Septic Tank Regulations?

At a minimum the new regulations require that one off houses have a system that is compliant with the EPA code of practice for domestic waste water treatment systems; or that the treated water is in compliance with water discharge regulations. Our reed bed systems comply in both respects.

Herr Ltd market and manufacture a range of components for self build, home constructed reed bed treatment systems. These components are designed so they can be easily assembled, easily maintained and to have long life.

Alternatives to the standard Septic Tank!

The Herr dry composting system for toilet solids is one way to reduce sludge removal costs from septic tanks.

Sewage Treatment using Reed Beds

Herr Ltd offers ecological waste water treatment solutions. We can offer a personal consultation service, so that the treatment system proposal meets your family circumstances and requirements.

We supply some of important system components for the proper operation of reed beds. We supply the documentation to prove that our reed bed system designs are in compliance with the EPA Code of practice for domestic waste water treatment systems.


Reed beds offer a natural solution to domestic waste water treatment that avoids the use of pumps, blowers or other electro mechanical alternatives. Generally this is possible on sites that have a sloping site of 2.4 to 5 meters.

If you are a gardener or if you compost kitchen waste at home then our reed bed system designs will probably be suitable for your lifestyle. It will take a maximum of six hours of gardening per annum to do all the reed bed maintenance work that is required.
