This job came to us from Clayton Homes, one of our builder partners. The owners are building a 4 bed home with possibility of finishing another for 5. We went ahead and installed a 1500 gallon poly tank. Since the field was pure sand, it only called for 39 total chambers, which we installed in 3 50′ trenches.
Design of system: TBC Septic
Aggregate Supplier: NA
Plastic Supplier: Plastics Inc.
Tank Supplier: Plastics Inc. (Infiltrator Tanks)
We began by trenching a 60′ run downhill and installed the 1500 gallon tank perpendicular to the line. I like installing in fashion on slopes so we can keep the risers at the same length.
Here is a side view. You can see we had 36″ of risers!
We then trenched 33′ down the hill to a distribution box splitting the effluent into 3 lines with Flow Equalizers.
Here is a shot of 1 of the trenches that hold 13 Infiltrator Chambers. There are 3 trenches totalling 39 Chambers.
Passed inspection. We already covered the main line here…
Onto the next one. Another successful OWTS install from:
