Effluent Control Systems is the distributor for Taylex Tanks in the Mid North Coast region of NSW, covering Greater Taree, Great Lakes, Gloucester, Port Macquarie and Kempsey. From Tea Gardens in the South to Kempsey in the North.

The business primarily handles sales, installation and maintenance of waste water treatment systems from a domestic unit for a single household to a large commercial system capable of treating a caravan park. Once installed, domestic systems must be serviced every three months and commecial systems every two.

The business has around 600 customers who are contracted for 4 routine services per annum (2400 services per year). This provides enormous on-going revenue. Other revenue is generated by way of sales of water tanks and many other products. Also breakdown call outs to repair treatment systems is another income stream.

Established now for over 25 years the current owner is seeking retirement. The business is currently run by a husband and wife team plus a very reliable staff employee who conducts the services diligently and efficiently.

For all these years the owner has kept overheads low and has operated the base from home. This has been a lifesyle choice to have business remain home based. All the new owner would need is a storage area for the tanks. Currently the tanks are stored in the crane operator's yard. This arrangement can be ongoing if required. Everything else can be monitored and maintained from a home office.

This business not only has an excellent repeat-business client base, it has huge potential to grow, suiting either companies already in this industry wishing to expand or perhaps a plumber, electrician or other tradie interested to own their own business.


There is a huge opportunity to increase the sales and service revenue by re-vamping the existing website to cater for more SEO (search engine optimisation) functions in order to create leads. The business already has a sound reputation and there is such a strong demand for the product, so changing the functionality of the website will no doubt increase revenue for the business.

Secondly, should the new owner decide to open a retail outlet to display tanks, this too would no doubt increase sales.


Genuine offers will be considered. The price will include the business name, website, client base including complete records of all clients and service records. The distributors agreement with Taylex for this massive territory is transferable to the new owner. Also includes contact numbers, equipment including 2 Ford vans, trailer, trenching machine and ploughing equipment, office machines and other miscellaneous items. Stock will be sold at valuation (usually around $20k).
