Drainfield Components

Geomatrix Systems GeoMat 
The GeoMat leaching system from Geomatrix Systems consists of a core of fused, entangled plastic filaments surrounded by a high-capillary geotextile fabric. When sized accordingly, it is compatible with pretreated wastewater or septic tank effluent. Uses also include subsurface irrigation and evapotranspiration systems. It is 1 inch high and available in 6-, 12- and 39-inch widths. A pressurized distribution pipe typically runs the length of the lateral for uniform application of wastewater. Additionally, it can be configured with a time-dose pump station for flow equalization. The combination of pressure dosing and flow equalization reduces peak hydraulic loading. The thin, narrow profile, shallow burial depth and uniform hydraulic loading maximize efficiency of oxygen transfer. It has complete surface contact with the soil and is not reliant on complex valving and filtration systems. Distal head pressure is fully adjustable through manual zone valves. 888-764-5247;

Infiltrator Water Technologies EZflow
The Infiltrator Water Technologies EZflow septic system replaces stone-and-pipe drainfields using geosynthetic aggregate in a modular, lightweight and easy-to-install design. It eliminates fines and reduces compaction and embedment associated with stone. The engineered system provides optimal storage and absorption efficiencies. The modular construction allows configurations to match most system trench dimensions and enables contouring along sloped sites and around trees or landscaping. Preassembled units include a 3- or 4-inch perforated pipe surrounded by aggregate and held in place with durable, high-strength netting. Manufactured from recycled materials, the system is available in 5- or 10-foot lengths with simple snap internal couplers and a variety of bundle system configurations. The system is suitable for repairs and tight job sites and is easily hand-carried into position, reducing time, labor and machine expense. It is approved in many areas with an increased efficiency rating that reduces drainfield size requirements. 800-221-4436;

Drip Systems

Jet Inc. Drip Irrigation Headworks
The Drip Irrigation Headworks package from Jet Inc. is designed as a direct-mount device on an effluent pump tank to filter effluent while controlling pressure to the dripfield. It is available for auto or manual flush. The package contains a 1.5-inch vortex screen filter and pre-installed pressure gauges to monitor pressure drop across the filter component and regulate pressure to the dripfield. It mounts onto an existing 24-inch riser for easy access to the pump, float tree, integrated vortex filter and controls. The package is available as part of the Drip Disposal Field Package that complements the J-1500 Series BAT Media treatment system. An optional flowmeter package and pressure relief valve is available to meet site-specific and regulatory criteria. 800-321-6960;

Norweco subsurface drip disposal system
The subsurface drip disposal system from Norweco is engineered to uniformly apply treated effluent below the ground’s surface. This method of pressure distribution is suited for all conditions, as effluent is delivered directly to the infiltrative surface of the soil using specially manufactured polyethylene tubing with built-in turbulent flow emitters. Properties with marginal soils can be economically developed using wastewater treatment systems and drip disposal technology. The system can increase the options available for onsite treatment system design. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and environmental protection agencies worldwide have determined subsurface drip disposal is a reliable and efficient method of effluent distribution. Even the most difficult sites can be utilized through gradual soil absorption, nutrient uptake by vegetation and evapotranspiration. 800-667-9326;

Filters/Filter Media

Sim/Tech Filter No-Vault
The No-Vault pump filter from Sim/Tech Filter is designed to help protect turbine pump intake screens. Filtration is achieved through a choice of a 6-inch diameter PVC or 316L stainless steel screen with 1/16-inch diameter perforations. The shorter model has 139 square inches of open area, while the tallest model has 325 square inches of open area. With 35 to 80 times the open area of the intake screen, it helps reduce the frequency of screen and pump cleaning. The interior sealing sleeve allows it to adjust to different pipe heights. The smallest unit handles pumps up to 26 inches tall, while the largest unit handles pumps up to 50 inches tall. The simple unit is easily installed in new systems or retrofitted onto existing systems. 888-999-3290;

The solids-handling pump series ranges from 1.5 to 15 hp and is available with two types of impellers: either an SLV/SuperVortex impeller that provides the free passage of solids up to 4 inches in diameter with a 6-inch discharge for liquids with a higher content of solids, fibers or gassy sludge; or the SL1/S-tube impeller that accommodates solids up to 4 inches in diameter with a 6-inch discharge and is designed for large flows of raw sewage and reduced horsepower usage. 630-236-5500;

Orenco Systems Biotube ProPak
Biotube ProPak pump packages from Orenco Systems are complete, ready-to-install pump packages. They are used for filtering and pumping effluent from single- or dual-compartment septic tanks to gravity or pressurized discharge points. Pump vault technology eliminates the need for a separate dosing tank. Packages include a Biotube filter cartridge, which filters up to two-thirds of solids, so only liquid from the tank’s clear zone is pumped. Filters are easy to remove and clean without pulling the pump vault. All components are designed to be quickly installed and easily maintained. The PF Series high-head effluent pump is field serviceable and field repairable, and pump controls are designed for specific packages. Multiple models are available. ProPak Select software is designed to provide fast, error-free hydraulic calculations and generate system curves, according to the maker. 800-348-9843;
