Types of Septic Systems
A decentralized wastewater treatment system consisting of a septic tank and a trench or bed subsurface wastewater infiltration system (drainfield). A conventional septic system is usuallyinstalled at a single-family home or small business.
The gravel/stone drainfield is a design that has existed for decades. The name refers to the construction of the drainfield. With this design, effluent is piped from the septic tank to a shallow underground trench of stone or gravel. A geofabric or similar material is then placed on top of the trench so sand, dirt, and other contaminants do not enter the clean stone.
Effluent filters through the stone and is then further treated by microbes once it reaches the soil below the gravel/stone trench.
Gravel/stone systems are fairly large in overall footprint and may not be suitable for all residential sites or conditions.

Came to my business that I thought I would have to close on a weekend because I could not find anyone to come out and clean the grease trap. Fixed my problem in the morning and I was able to open back up again for lunch and saved my weekend!- Mariajose G.
