HERE IS A SEPTIC TANK AND LEACH FIELD REPLACEMENT FOR A HOUSE IN FRANKTOWN COLORADO. TANK WENT FROM 1,000 GALLON TO 1,530 GALLON PLASTIC TANK AND THE FIELD (FAILED) WHEN FROM TRADITIONAL GRAVEL PIT TO INFILTRATORS. HOUSE IS TO BE SOLD THE FOLLOWING WEEK SO WE HAD TO HURRY!
Design of system: Homestake Engineering
Aggregate Supplier: NA
Plastic Supplier: Plastics Inc.
Tank Supplier: Plastics Inc.
After we pumped and crushed the existing tank, we dug the hole for the new Poly Tank. The septic line came out of the home under the footer, so it was deep. There are 36″ of risers on top! Here is a pic installed. Very sandy soil!
Next, we turned our focus to the field. There were so many trees, and with the 5 bedroom home, we had to have 2 fields. These where 12′ wide and 68 feet and 40 feet long.
Here, we are installing the Infiltrators.
Here is field #1.
Here is the 2nd field. Much shorter. We were in tight quarters, with several large pine trees and a well 101′ feet away!
Passed TCHD inspection and backfilled. Another successful installation from TBC Septic.
