If you are considering doing a septic or drainfield repair then the dry season is the time consider doing the repair. When the soil is drier there is less damage done to the soil. Wet soils cause smearing and sealing of the soil and drainfield interface.

Here are a few pictures from our latest installation for a subdivision. The wastewater is collected in a septic tank and liquids are sent to a textile filter that recirculates and treats the wastewater to a high level. Then the wastewater is used for irrigation in a field. This provides treatment of the wastewater to be recharged back to the groundwater basin.

Give us a call if you need a wastewater solution. We provide treatment systems from 200 gallons per day to 1 MGD.

5,000 Gallon Per Day System
5,000 GPD Treatment System

This installation was quite tedious because we had to permit the system through the Florida’s Bureau of Onsite Sewage and the Pasco County Health Department. SWS provided the owner’s with septic engineering and permitting. ¬†Prior to permitting and engineering SWS was able to provide the owner’s with a construction cost. This helps the owner’s determine the best options for their septic system needs.

Septic Tank System Installed

The treatment tanks were installed and the existing plumbing was tied into the new treatment system. This septic system added additional capacity for the RV Park. Now as other septic tanks in the facility begin to fail these systems are added to the new system through a modification permit.

Drainfield flexibility
Flexible Drainfield Design

Another note is that the drainfield dispersal using drip irrigation is very flexible. We were able to install the drip system around the trees that were onsite. Geoflow drip irrigation has a patened technology that can keep the roots from getting into the drip emitters.

So, if you want a septic system designed to last and expect quality septic parts and pieces to be installed. Then have SWS design and install your septic system.

Septic Drainfield Repair and Replacement

This week we were working on two convenience stores that had been repaired in the last three years. The company had trusted the previous company to repair the system properly. One system had a tank that was cracked and the other system had risers and lids that leaked.

Leaking Riser

Watertight Riser Package

It pays to inspect what you are paying for when you higher a contractor. This got by the County Health Inspector. This riser had cracks in riser itself and it was not properly attached to the tank. This can cause a huge problem because when the seasonal high ground water table is higher than the interface of where the riser meets the tank then excess water leaks into the tank and is pumped into the drainfield. In this instance it caused the premature failure of the drainfield. If someone is installing a drainfield that it should last a lot longer than 3 years. Diagosing these failures properly is what you pay a good contractor to do.

Dual Alternating Septic Pumps

The installation of dual alternating septic pumps is a requirement on systems over 500 gpd on commercial septic systems and residential systems over 2000 square feet. It is not a bad idea to have a built in redundancy for systems. We can design a system for a redundant or lag pump in the event of a main pump failure. We can make it so that you will get an alarm; however, the system will continue to function with the lag pump.

Orenco Commercial Filter

Installing commercial filters can improve the efficiency of the filtering depending on which filter you purchase. SWS carries filters from Tuf-Tite, Orenco, and Bear Onsite. These filters have been proving over time to provide excellent effluent filtering capabilities. There is a lot of science on effluent filters. The two main factors that affect the filtering capabilities is the pore size of the effluent filter and the amount of surface area that the filter has. The larger to orrifice size on the filter the more sludge that can enter the drainfield. The amount of surface area that the filter has determines the cleaning interval. So, the better filters have smaller pore size and more surface area. If you have small pore size and small surface area then the filter clogs too quickly.

When it comes to septic system design and diagnostics allow the professional team and Southern Water and Soil, Inc., provide you with excellent service.
