Engineered drip septic systems reduce the risk of untreated wastewater.
When it comes to septic system types, you have many options to pick from. One of these is an engineered drip septic system, which releases small amounts or “drips” of wastewater at consistent intervals. Engineered drip septic systems minimize the risk of untreated wastewater getting into the soil while maximizing the treatment of wastewater.
At Southern Water and Soil, we recommend the installation of engineered drip septic systems in places with forested areas, steep slopes, and other areas where a trench could be hard to install. These septic systems are also a good fit for resorts and golf courses that are only open during the warmer months of the year here in Dade City, Florida. We often combine engineered drip septic systems with a pretreatment system, such as a sand filter or an aerobic septic system.
Engineered drip septic systems are comprised of three separate parts:
- The dispersal unit. This is comprised of a return line and a supply line.
- The septic tank.
- The lift tank. This contains a pump and a filter. These two parts work together to distribute wastewater evenly throughout the soil and the tubing.
