Septic System Filters

There are several versions of septic and other types of wastewater filters and the most basic septic effluent filter is a simple tee filter that is installed at the septic tank outlet. Septic filters are placed either in the septic tank at the outlet tee or in a separate chamber outside of and close to the septic tank.

Gray water filters, washing machine filters, and filters at the effluent outlet of a conventional septic tank are all designed to protect the septic effluent absorption field or leach field.

Gray water filters may be placed at the inlet to a drywell or gray water disposal system. Washing machine filters are often installed at the clothes washer outlet hose.
