This job came to us from a competitor how learned about it from Honeybee. It was a failed leach field; that was backing up into the home, possibly from a water softener that went bad. The owners existing concrete tank, a 1250 gallon appear to be in good shape so it remained in the system. We added a 500 gallon pump tank and 4000 square feet of field in 20 100′ trenches.
Design of system: Colorado Geoscience
Aggregate Supplier: NA
Plastic Supplier: Plastics Inc.
Tank Supplier: Existing tank used with Plastics Inc. Pump Tank by Infiltrators
One day 1 we excavated for the pump tank to be installed approx 10′ after the tank. We added 3.5 feet of risers to come to grade.
We then trenched the field. 20, 8″ wide trenches, 2′ apart and 100 feet long. We had to stair-step 1 of the system fields to remain under 30″ deep. We specialize in trenched systems.
While they may not look it in the pic, the 4 valves are completely level for even effluent distribution.
After passing Engineer and County inspections, we are able to backfill system.
Another successful field and with pump/alarm installed by:
