Septic drain fields (or leach fields / leach drains) are used to remove contaminants and impurities from the effluent that emerges from the septic tank. A septic tank, the septic drain field, and the associated piping compose a complete septic system. The septic drain field is used for disposal of organic materials readily broken down by a microbial ecosystem. The drain field typically consists of an arrangement of trenches containing perforated pipes and porous material (often gravel) covered by a layer of soil to prevent animals and surface runoff from reaching the waste-water distributed within those trenches.
Primary design considerations are hydraulic for the volume of waste-water requiring disposal and broken down for the long-term biochemical oxygen demand of the waste-water.
OXY-Septic increases fluid flow immediately by breaking up solids with concentrated oxygen. Oxygen stimulates beneficial Aerobic Bacteria, increasing your drain field’s efficiency.
