2-Compartment septic tank with pump

pump FEED TO pressurized DISPOSAL FIELD




  • 2-4


Two compartment tanks in design, they provide primary treatment of wastewater through the process of settling and floating of solids and in which digestion of the accumulated sludge occurs. Very cost effective for properties with lots of acreage and a high loading rate of soil characteristics.


Secondary treatment plans are an upgrade to the conventional septic tank. Basically they treat the sewage inside of the tanks utilizing a 3 chamber 4 stage process that introduces aeration and filtration to treating the sewage and intern reduces the strength of the effluent by 85%, which allows it to be discharged into a smaller septic field area or if the property criteria is right a At-Grade disposal field.

This type of system is primarily designed for properties 3.5 acres or less, that contain ecologically sensitive areas like creeks or streams or contain poor soil conditions and high water tables.


Excavated trenches into the soil that contain infiltrator chambers and pressurized PVC distribution lines. Utilizes the natural soils for filtrating the effluent as it passes though the soil.

Above Ground Pressurized Treatment Fields (also known as mounds, Sand mounds Minnesota Mounds etc.) Constructed above ground due to poor soil filtration quality, usually this is farmland that has primarily clay in the soil. Mounds are mainly constructed of a combination of C-36 washed sand, Weeping tile rock and filtered top soil that contains a limited percentage of clay. Pressurized PVC lines are installed in the middle of the mound and the weeping tile rock and C-36 sand act as a filter for the effluent, which becomes a clear odorless liquid by the time it reaches the restrictive layer in the soil.

*note: mounds are primarily more expensive due to the fact that all the soil to construct the mound has to be hauled in and also it is very labor intensive to build.


The At Grade septic field design along with a package treatment plant is identical in component structure to the Pressure Distribution System except that the laterals are not buried into the ground. The laterals are placed on the ground surface within a treed and bushed area. Once all the pressure pipes and chambers are constructed the entire lateral is covered over with wood chips or mulch to assist in insulation and blends into natural setting. Specific design parameters has been developed to identify where this system can be utilized

▪ This system works well on acreages that have poor soil structure or a limited amount of area for effective effluent treatment.
▪ Ideal for acreages that do not want the natural trees removed, the natural Trees and bush provide a safe, out of sight and out of mind septic field location which cannot be damaged by traffic or yard equipment. It also reduces exposure to harsh elements.
▪Easy access to all septic field components for repair or maintenance since they are not buried.
