texture determines how quickly wastewater will be absorbed
in the drain field. The ability of soil to absorb water
is known as soil percolation. Soils containing a balance
of coarse and fine particles are the best types for
drainage, or percolation, of wastewater.
or soil with a coarse texture, or coarse sand may allow
wastewater to pass too quickly to provide adequate treatment.
These types of soils work only if they are deep. In
some areas of the country mound systems using imported
soil are used where these soil conditions exist.
high in clay content can cause a drain
field problem. Fortunately these types of soils
can be treated with Septic Seep.
