This job came to us from High Plains Sanitation, after it discovered the field was not draining properly. 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.

Aggregate Supplier: NA
Plastic Supplier: Plastics Inc.
Tank Supplier: Existing tank used with Plastics Inc. Pump Tank by Infiltrators
1st, we needed to add risers on the existing tank, which appear to be in fine condition.
Next, we excavated for the pump tank. This was a 500 gallon tank with a 1/2 Horse liberty Pump and a SJ Alarm box.
We then had to trench under a fench and out into a horse pasture to connect to the new field.
Let the trenching begin:
We then connect the pipe (2″ PVC with perf holes on 8″). Everything must be level; like on a pool table.
Next comes the valves. They must be 100% level so an equal amount of efflent is distributed to the system.
Inspections from Engineer and County passed. We cover and move onto the next. Another successful system installed by:
