Septic Fields
The septic field, which is also called a leeching bed, is an underground area where perforated pipes are laid out in rows. The water from the septic tank flows from the pipes and into the surrounding ground where it is cleaned by bacterial and the soil. How fast this works depends on the soil type and the length of the pipes.

If the soil allows the water to pass through easily and still filters the water, then a smaller septic field is necessary.

As every situation is different, soil, slope etc. makes each application unique, pricing and planning is site specific and can very thousands of dollars. To ensure that you are not paying to much and that your system is suitable to the site contact Gerry Norton for a professional appraisal of your situation.
