Where to buy gravelless or no-rock septic system materials: this article discusses product suppliers for gravelless or "no gravel" or "no rock" septic drainfield systems.
Green links show where you are. © Copyright 2014 InspectApedia.com, All Rights Reserved.
Gravelless septic systems or "no gravel" septic system trenches use plastic or other prefabricated wastewater distribution systems which are buried in soil without the use of surrounding gravel. Typical gravelless septic systems use a plastic chamber, a geotextile-wrapped pipe, or a polystyrene-wrapped pipe to distribute effluent into the soil.
The necessary soil absorption area is provided by the perforated surface of the gravelless septic system components (or by soil at the bottom of a chamber) themselves rather than by the gravel and trench walls of a conventional septic drainfield. These systems can provide an acceptable effluent disposal system for sites with limited space for a drainfield or where gravel is not available or is quite expensive.
Gravelless or "no-rock" septic system designs are discussed in detail at Gravelless Septic Systems - design and installation specifications
