Understanding Leach Fields

A leach field, an essential part of your septic system, operates quietly behind the scenes. It’s where the treated wastewater from your septic tank is further purified and slowly released into the soil, preventing pollution and protecting water quality. The design and installation of a leach field are critical, requiring a deep understanding of soil conditions, environmental regulations, and precise engineering.

Types of Leach Fields We Install

When it comes to septic system installation, our skilled team excels in designing and implementing tailored solutions that cater to your specific needs. We understand that every property is different, and that's why we take a customized approach to ensure optimal performance and longevity of your septic system.

Conventional Leach Fields

The go-to choice for many properties, conventional leach fields are suited for areas with favorable soil conditions that allow for efficient wastewater filtration. Their design simplicity and effectiveness make them a popular choice among homeowners in Thunder Bay.

Mound Systems

Designed for properties where traditional leach fields are not feasible due to shallow soil depth, high groundwater, or restrictive space, mound systems offer an alternative solution. Raised above ground level, these systems use a sand mound to treat and disperse wastewater, accommodating properties with challenging terrains.

Eljen Geotextile-Sand-Filter (GSF)

For properties requiring advanced treatment and a smaller footprint, the Eljen GSF system is an innovative solution. Utilizing a combination of geotextile fabric and sand filtration, these systems offer superior wastewater treatment, making them ideal for environmentally sensitive areas or properties with limited space.
