Why Choose South Texas Wastewater


  1. Most of our competitors use fiberglass tanks. While this may result in a lower installation cost, concrete tanks are more rugged and should be permanent. We use only concrete tanks.
  2. Most of our competitors' systems require a pre-treatment tank installed before their treatment tank and require a filter on the output of the system. Our systems require only one treatment tank and one pump tank. No filters are required.
  3. Jet Inc., the supplier of our aerobic treatment products, is the leader and producer of the most popular home treatment plant in the industry. JET is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The VA has declared the Jet Home Plant acceptable for its insured home loans. In addition, JET plants have been sold to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Navy, the Post Office, and many other state and federal agencies where top quality specifications are strictly followed. JET has been around since 1955, and no other competitor has more systems installed in this local area or in the State of Texas or throughout the U.S.
  4. Our JET system has a 30 month warranty that covers the aerator. After the first 30 months and up to 20 years, the JET aerator has a prorated exchange policy which further limits the cost of replacement.
