A septic system failure is factored into one’s budget. Installing a new house septic system can cost anywhere from $4,000 to over $20,000. If the system isn’t kept up with, the soil surrounding it might get blocked, allowing sewage to overflow into the ground or back up into the home.
How much does a septic system installation cost?
The Eljen GSF system is a more cost-effective alternative to traditional septic systems. The geotextile modules apply a better-than-secondary septic tank effluent to the soil thanks to a patented two-stage Bio-MattTM pre-treatment procedure.
Septic effluent is distributed over and into corrugations generated by the cuspated core of the GSF Module via perforated tubing located above it.
The GSF Modules provide a better-than-secondary aerobic effluent to the soil, boosting the soil’s ability to receive the effluent. The Eljen GSF Geotextile Sand
Filter System is made up of a patented two-stage Bio-MattTM pre-treatment process. As a consequence, a better treatment in a smaller absorption region is achieved.
The top and sides of the GSF Module are covered in an anti-siltation geotextile fabric that protects the Specified Sand and soil from clogging while preserving effluent storage within the Module.
The Eljen Corporation is a global pioneer in onsite wastewater treatment. The firm, our products (GSF, Mantis, Double-Wide, PDS, Radon), our members, and how to acquire training are all covered in this movie.
The world’s first prefabricated drainage system for foundation drainage and erosion control applications was developed by Eljen Corporation.
Our Geotextile Sand Filter products were first introduced in the mid-1980s for the passive advanced treatment of onsite wastewater in both residential and commercial applications. Eljen is now a global leader in offering innovative products and solutions for environmental and public health protection.
Unsaturated flow into the native soil is supported by the Specified Sand layer. This Specified Sand/Soil Interface preserves soil structure, maximising the native soil’s potential absorption interface.
The Specified Sand promotes effluent nitrification, which lowers oxygen demand in the soil and decreases anaerobic bacteria clogging.
The Specified Sand layer also protects the soil from compaction and aids in the preservation of the soil’s pores and crevices. This helps to protect the soil’s natural infiltration capacity, which is especially significant in finer-textured soils where wide channels are essential for long-term performance.
Final filtering is provided by native soil, which also allows for groundwater recharging.
According to the Rhode Island Regional Water Quality Program, enhanced, designed, or alternative septic systems that include mounds, sand/peat filters, aerobic systems, and/or artificial wetlands can cost $10,000-$20,000 or more.
For areas with rich groundwater or slowly/rapidly percolating soil, or near
drinking water supplies, wetlands, coastal ponds, or other water resources, these alternative septic systems perform better than the standard technique.
Each house has its own underground septic tank in a cluster septic system, however they all feed into one drainfield/leachfield/soil absorption system. A cluster septic system, which is commonly built by developers, divides the expense of drainfield installation and maintenance across several residences.
