Examples of Conventional Systems

Conventional Systems
Subsurface Leach Fields

Waste flows into septic tank, solids settle out and effluent flows through pipes into trenches of gravel. The purified liquid is absorbed into the ground.

  • Low initial cost
  • No mechanical parts
  • If the ground will not absorb water it will not work.
  • Field may require up to 40′ by 100′ area.
Conventional Systems
Buried Sand Filter

Waste flows into septic tank, solids settle out. Effluent flows through pipes and filters down through 24″ of sand (or other filter media). The purified liquid is picked up by lines on the bottom, runs through a chlorinator and discharged to the surface.

  • No mechanical parts
  • Requires less area than a seepage field
  • Can be used in areas where soil types will not absorb water.
  • If the filter media ever clogs, removal and replacement would be expensive.
  • Filter along may require up to a 20′ x 40′ area.
  • Drop of 48″ from tank inlet to discharge line. A life pump must be used in many situations.
