Drainfield Components

Advanced Drainage Systems Septic Stack
The Septic Stack system from Advanced Drainage Systems is available in configurations of 9, 11 and 13 pipes. The units are designed to allow for exceptional soil contact without the use of gravel, functioning as a trickle filter to disperse effluent into the voids in and around specially banded ADS pipe. The pipe is engineered with holes and slots, allowing it to collect and disperse effluent as it passes over corrugations in the pipe. Systems are available for use in both residential and commercial applications in trench, bed and mound configurations, as well as pressure dosing. 800-821-6710;

Arcan Enterprises Septic-Scrub
Septic-Scrub chemical additive from Arcan Enterprises is designed to help remove sludge that builds up and sticks to the stone in a drainfield, pit or sand mound to rejuvenate the drainfield. According to the maker, it works in the first 24 hours after application. It can serve as part of a maintenance program. It works with all types of systems, is safe to handle and is environmentally friendly. 888-352-7226;

Clarus Environmental WW4
The WW4 effluent filter from Clarus Environmental is mounted in the septic tank outflow to provide protection from solids moving out of the tank and into the dispersal area. A secondary screen offers protection when the primary cartridge is removed to be cleaned. After the primary cartridge is cleaned, the secondary screen can be removed and cleaned. It can handle up to 4,000 gpd and can be assembled on site in a multifilter configuration for larger flows. 800-928-7867;

Polylok 24-inch Rhino Distribution Box
The Polylok 24-inch Rhino Distribution Box has 10 potential openings, making it suitable for any drainfield application. Polylok’s 24-inch stackable riser system can be used to easily bring the Rhino Box to grade. It will accept 2-, 3- and 4-inch pipe with the use of the Polylok seal and nut system. It will also accept 6-inch pipe with the use of a Polylok 6-inch grommet. It is also available as a catch basin with a Polylok heavy-duty grate. 877-765-9565;

Sim/Tech Filter orifice shields
Orifice shields from Sim/Tech Filter are designed to prevent drain media, such as drain stone, from blocking discharge holes, promoting even distribution of effluent in pressurized systems. The shields have a sturdy design that keeps them firmly in place after snapping them on the laterals, according to the maker. The large amount of open area between the pipe and shield allows for easy placement over the holes and reduces media clogging by debris. The enclosed design has a large amount of open area, but all openings are small enough to prevent media from entering the shield. Two styles are available — for top-discharge distribution holes and bottom-discharge holes. Shields are available to fit 3/4-, 1-, 1 1/4-, 1 1/2-, 2- or 3-inch pipe. 888-999-3290;

TUF-TITE Distribution Box with Speed Leveler
The non-corrosive TUF-TITE Distribution Box with Speed Leveler in each outlet provides a simple, stable, reliable and permanent means for dividing septic tank effluent flow, according to the maker. Distribution boxes come in four sizes: four-, six-, seven- and nine-hole. Risers are available on the four-, seven- and nine-hole boxes. All boxes come with a one-piece watertight seal that accepts 1.5-, 2-, 3- and 4-inch SDR 35 or Schedule 40 pipe, including corrugated, for easy installation. 800-382-7009;

Filter Media

E-Z Treat Recirculation Sand/Media Filter System
E-Z Treat recirculating synthetic media filter systems are designed to create a suitable setting for bacterial growth to flourish. They are manufactured to treat sewage across multiple applications and for flows of 100 to 100,000 gpd. The system uses natural biological processes to break down waste. When septic-treated effluent first enters the recirculating chamber, it is dosed passively through an active film matrix. Through a series of bypass valves and recirculation pumps, the effluent is continuously circulated through the media where it can exit through a bypass valve and flow into a gravity drainfield or into a pump chamber for dispersal options. 866-753-4770;

Eljen Geotextile Sand Filter
The GSF, or Geotextile Sand Filter, advanced wastewater treatment and dispersal system from Eljen is designed to provide treatment and dispersal in the same footprint while keeping installations easy and maintenance minimal. This product is used for both commercial and residential applications. Utilizing a two-stage pretreatment process, the geotextile modules apply filtered septic tank effluent to the soil, increasing the soil’s ability to accept the effluent and increase the long-term acceptance rate. Open-air channels within the module support aerobic bacterial growth on the module’s geotextile fabric, surpassing the surface area required for traditional absorption systems. The result is simple installations in a smaller soil absorption area. The system is tested and certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 40. 800-444-1359;

Vent Pipe Filters

Industrial Odor Control, a Simple Solutions Company, Heavy Duty
Industrial Odor Control, a Simple Solutions Company, has made an improvement to the Heavy Duty filter with an end-of-service life indicator (ESLI), a qualitative (yes/no) colorimetric indicator for the end-of-service life of carbon adsorbers and filters. It is designed to provide real-time indication of the breakthrough of hydrogen sulfide gas, allowing the customer to order replacement carbon before the odor returns. It is located on the side of the filter and is easily viewable from the ground, allowing the homeowner to know when the carbon is becoming saturated without climbing on the roof or waiting until they notice an odor breakthrough. The indicator is waterproof. Filters come complete with their first charge of carbon, Norit Darco’s H2S Sulfursorb Plus. This carbon has been engineered to work efficiently in high-humidity conditions. The filter housings are manufactured from heavy-duty schedule 40 PVC. 866-667-8465;

Pagoda Vent 
Vent pipe filters from Pagoda Vent provide septic field microbes with the oxygen needed to thrive. They give concrete tanks gas release to mitigate microbial-induced corrosion and provide pressure relief for pumps. They provide proper ventilation, while remaining inconspicuous and attractive in the landscape. The units are durable, lightweight and will not rust. An optional odor filter cartridge using a specialized concentrated media offers years of lasting odor control and fits concealed in the device, according to the maker. 888-864-1468;
