Drip Septic Systems

Drip fields on a slope must be designed and installed to prevent drain-back. Otherwise, the lowest part of the field gets overloaded.

Manual flushing of drip fields every 3 to 4 months is generally insufficient. Flushing frequency is a factor of effluent quality, field design, dosing and resting times, and volume of flow, among other considerations.

The better the design of the field, the better the quality of effluent (remember filtration!), the lower the flow, the lower the dosing frequencies, the less frequently one needs to flush the field tubing.

Drip lines MUST be laid parallel to the contour lines - NO EXCEPTIONS.
