NexGen EZflow septic systems are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional stone and pipe drainfields. They use a modular engineered geosynthetic gravel design. The EZflow system improves drainfield performance by reducing fines, compaction, and embedment that are associated with stone. Pre-Assembled units consist of a 3’’ or 4’’ perforated pipe, surrounded with aggregate and held in position by durable, high-strength netting.
EZflow is a powerful tool that you should have. After using EZflow a few times, I have seen it used by many engineers and installers. It allows for great flexibility in design and installation. Although it may not be the right solution for every job, it is a great solution on almost any site.
Let’s Look At Some Of The Benefits That Ezflow Can Bring To Septic Systems.
Engineered to Consistency
EZflow is composed of engineered geosynthetic gravel. Each piece of EZflow is identical because it is engineered. The flow channels increase void space, improve water flow, and store more water.
You Have Fewer Resources To Install:
EZflow is light and portable, so it can be carried around on your hands. Installation of EZflow is easy. All you have to do is lay the pipe in the trench and connect the pipes. Site cleanup is easy. Simply pick up any packaging that has been disposed.
EZflow can be bent to fit around landscape problems like installing between trees.
EZflow, like our chambers or septic tanks is made from recycled materials. To manufacture our products, Infiltrator uses over 150 million pounds worth of recycled plastics each year.
EZflow is easier to install and requires less space for treatment. EZflow’s engineered design reduces compaction and eliminates the fines commonly found in crushed stones.
How Much Can The The Leach Field Be Reduced When I Install Ezflow?
Each local health department determines the system sizing. The system size is usually calculated using a combination soil type and wastewater volume (normally based on the number of bedrooms). Health departments usually approve sizing cuts of 25 to 50% when EZflow has been specified. For details in your local area, check your local health codes.
Which Systems Can Ezflow Be Installed In?
EZflow is compatible with almost all septic leach fields. EZflow is compatible with any type of pipe and stone. This includes installation in trenches, beds, and elevated mounds. EZflow offers superior treatment capabilities for pressure dosing and serial distribution.
What Is The Maximum Size Of The Leach Field That Can Be Reduced When I Install Ezflow?
Each local health department determines the system sizing. The system size is usually calculated using a combination soil type and wastewater volume (normally based on the number of bedrooms). When EZflow is specified, sizing reductions are typically approved by health departments. Yes. EZflow can contour around any obstacle.
Can Ezflow Be Installed Under A Driveway Or Paved Surface?
Septic leach fields cannot be installed on impervious surfaces like driveways, according to most health codes. The reason is that the soil can be compressed by the pressure of the surface, which can cause a decrease in its ability to filter effluent (wastewater). For the exact codes applicable to your area, check with your local health department. For design and installation instructions, contact Infiltrator Water Technologies’ Technical Services team at 1-800-718-2744.
What Is Ezflow’s Minimum And Maximum System Coverage Specification?
Infiltrator Water Technologies recommends that EZflow be covered with a minimum 12 inch of compacted material. In a trench system, the maximum allowable cover for EZflow is 96 inches. Maximum cover for bed systems is 48 inches. For specific requirements, check with your local health codes.
