- Cost-effective solution:
In locations with low population densities and where the cost of constructing and maintaining centralised systems can be prohibitive, small sewage treatment systems are generally more affordable to instal and operate than centralised systems.
- Environmentally friendly:
Small sewage treatment systems are made to use the least amount of energy and chemicals possible and to release the cleaned wastewater in a way that will cause the least amount of damage to the environment. The detrimental effects of wastewater disposal on aquatic ecosystems and other natural resources may be lessened as a result.
- Public health benefits:
By efficiently treating and disposing of wastewater, small sewage treatment systems can assist to lower the risk of waterborne infections and other health issues. By doing this, hazardous bacteria and contaminants that may be present in untreated wastewater can be avoided, protecting both people and animals.
Small sewage treatment systems can be quickly expanded or modified as needed and can be tailored to meet the unique needs of a property or community. This makes it possible to manage wastewater in a way that is more flexible and responsive.
- Suitable for rural areas:
They are especially crucial in rural locations, since there are few people living there and centralised systems can be expensive to instal and maintain. Small sewage treatment systems can offer a dependable and affordable method of handling wastewater in these locations.

- Decentralized system:
A decentralised system enables on-site wastewater treatment and disposal, eliminating the need for wastewater to be transported over large distances, thereby consuming less energy and lowering the risk of spills or leaks.
- Low maintenance:
Small sewage treatment systems frequently require less maintenance and upkeep than centralised systems, which can ultimately save municipalities and property owners time and money.
- Water reuse:
In order to conserve water resources and lessen the pressure on centralised systems, some small sewage treatment systems are made to provide treated water that may be used safely for irrigation, landscaping, and other non-potable uses.
