Splitter system helps maintain even distribution

Problem: While performing the installation of a septic system with underground, gravity-fed soil absorption in rural Texas, an installer found difficulty maintaining even distribution of wastewater across the drainfield. Though several attempts were made to correct this issue, all the effluent continued to flow to only one lateral.

Solution: With the installation of a Clarus Environmental Tru-Flow splitter system, the inspection port, level and movable tray allow the flow-splitting device to be adjusted after burial. This splitter system will evenly split effluent between two and five lines. The system is made up of a diverter basin and cover and an adjustable diverter. The unit can tolerate settlement of as much as 15 degrees front-to-back (30 degrees total) and/or 12 degrees side-to-side (24 degrees total). Even with the housing out of level, the unit will evenly split effluent when the diverter is adjusted properly. The system works with all gravity flows and can receive pumped effluent up to 30 gpm. It has no parts to wear out and utilizes noncorrodible materials.

Result: Even distribution was accomplished among the various outlets, despite the lack of a perfectly level installation due to soil coverage and settling. 800-928-7867;
