How the Eljen GSF System Works
It is the GSF System applies treated effluent to the soil, which increases the soil’s acceptance rate over time. An Specified Sand layer offers additional drainage, and also helps prevent overly saturated conditions. Every GSF Module is comprised of a geotextile material and the plastic core material which are able to work together to provide an oxygen-rich vertical surface and transfer.
Primary Treatment Zone
- The unique design of the GSF Module offers a greater surface area to allow the biological processing of nutrients as well as pollutants.
- Perforated pipe is placed over the GSF Module in order to disperse septic effluent across and into the corrugations formed by the GSF Module’s plastic core. Module.
- A geotextile material that blocks the effects of siltation is used to cover the sides and top on the GSF Module in order to ensure that the system is protected from transfer of fine particles.
- Open air channels in the GSF Module promote aerobic growth of bacterial colonies on the module’s geotextile fabric interface and encourages oxygen to the system.
Secondary Treatment Zone
- It is Specified Sand layer helps protect the soil against compaction and assists to maintain crevices and cracks inside the soil.
- Effluent flows into the Specified Sand layer, and it helps support unsaturated water flow to the soil.
- Native soils provide final filtration and also allows groundwater recharge.
