Sewer Lateral Connections

A sewer lateral connection is simply a pipe that connects your home to the municipal sewer system. A standard installation for residential and commercial properties, this type of delivery method is usually required by local municipalities as well. If you're interested in installing one or need any information on how they work, feel free to contact our company today!

A common misconception people have about these pipes are that there's no backup overflow protection so if something goes wrong with them then it could be disastrous - but luckily we've got all your bases covered when it comes down to safety thanks to innovative products which helps stop backups from happening while also preventing odors from escaping into open spaces within the building during an emergency situation such as flooding.

Grinder Pumps

A grinder pump is placed in a tank (or well) that many people have installed on their property it's easy to do and you save money because of the lower cost. When water is used, wastewater flows into the tank where it sits until there's enough for a grind. The grinder pump then automatically turns on when this happens so everything can be clean as new!

The process starts with installing your own personal Grinder Pump unit either inside or outside, whichever will work best for you but remember they're pretty inexpensive compared to regular plumbing costs which makes them worth buying whether its an internal or external install

Leach Field

Effluent from the septic tank flows by gravity or is pumped to a leach field for disposal. The wastewater effluent is absorbed by soil particles and moves both horizontally and vertically through the soil pores. The dissolved organic material in the effluent is removed by bacteria which live in the top ten feet of the soil. As the effluent moves through the soil, the temperature and chemical characteristics of the wastewater change and create an unfavorable habitat for most bacteria and viruses. Therefore, as the septic tank effluent moves through the soil, organic material and microorganisms are removed. The wastewater generally percolates downward through soil and eventually enters a groundwater aquifer. A portion of the wastewater moves upwards by capillary action and is removed at the ground surface by evaporation and transpiration of plants.

A leach field consists of a series of four-inch diameter perforated distribution pipelines placed in two to three-foot wide trenches. The perforated pipe is placed on top of gravel which is also used to backfill around the pipe. The gravel promotes drainage and reduces root growth near the pipeline. Untreated building paper or straw is placed over the gravel to prevent fine soil particles from migrating into the gravel. The building paper or straw does not reduce the evapotranspiration of the wastewater. A minimum topsoil cover is placed over the gravel to protect the leach field, prevent contact with the wastewater and reduce infiltration from rain and snow.

Eljen Systems

Eljen System InstallationIncoming effluent and bacteria flow thought the perforated pipes which distribute the effluent over the modules and then the open air channels in the modules allow beneficial bacteria to grow on the Bio-Matt fabric and treat effluent. A geotextile fabric covers the top and sides of the GSF modules, protecting the systems/sand and soil from fine particles that can clog the system. It also helps maintain effluent storage inside the modules. After effluent passes though the GSF modules, a lighter, secondary biomat forms on the layer of sand below the systems, where the treatment process is continued. Finally, treated effluent is then absorbed by the native soil where final filtration takes place.

Holding Tanks

Waste water can be stored in a holding tank before being pumped out and hauled to the processing facility. The volume of this container can range from 1,000 gallons - 4,000 gallons depending on how much waste is produced by your home or business establishment. Holding tanks are often used for entire wastewater flows that don't require conventional anaerobic treatment with septic tanks because they have no pipes coming in or going out which means there's little chance for leakage.

In order to provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly option for waste disposal, but still giving humans the convenience of not having to remember when they need more toilet paper or kitty litter; holding tanks are used. Holding tanks can be found at commercial establishments like restaurants that have multiple bathrooms on site where water is piped from all sinks in every bathroom into one tank with an electrical pump attached near its top which pumps out wastewater once it reaches 4,000 gallons capacity so you never forget how often your business needs those things again!

A sewage system consists of a network of pipes installed beneath ground level between buildings and public sewers. A holding tank recieves wastes from homes or businesses before transporting them through underground piping systems connected below grade (below surface).
