Septic System Effluent Filters-Filter What? Filter This!

Effluent filters are where it's at. Especially when it involves protecting & maintaining your septic system. The effluent filter below has trapped debris, hair, lint etc that would normally clog a septic tank & disposal area field (lateral lines, seepage pit, disposal bed). When a clogging mat has formed in your disposal area of your septic system-your septic system will not work efficiently and can lead to premature failing of your drain field or seepage pit. Repair and/or replacement will be costly and can result in back-up of sewage into your home or on your property causing a health issue.
