In today’s systems the traditional outlet baffle is removed and replaced with a filter. This filter enhances the protection of your drainfield by filtering the water as it leaves the tank trapping small solids from flowing into the drainfield which can cause plugging.
Like any filter though, these filters need to be cleaned frequently to ensure your system functions properly. Depending on the make and size of your filter, we suggest cleaning your filter at least once or twice a year. We offer a filter cleaning maintenance schedule based on your particular need of cleaning.
