One kind of septic system called a low-pressure dosing system uses a low-pressure pump to move wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field.
When the drain field is located far from the septic tank or the soil is unsuitable for a traditional septic system, these systems are frequently used.
How a low-pressure dosing system works
The septic tank treats the wastewater from the house, removing particles and reducing the amount of liquid.
Using a low-pressure pump, the treated wastewater is then transferred from the septic tank to the drain field.
The frequency and length of the dosage cycles are normally set by a timer or other control mechanism, which is used to operate the pump.
The wastewater is pushed by the low-pressure pump via a system of pipelines and onto the drain field, where the soil further treats and filters it before it is released into the environment.
The pipes and other system components’ danger of damage is reduced because of the low pressure at which the low-pressure dosing system is intended to function.
In general, low-pressure dosing systems are a good option for moving wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field when a traditional septic system is insufficient.
To make sure that these systems are operating correctly, they need to be maintained and observed on a regular basis.
