Why is System Sand so important?

The System Sand that surrounds the AES and Enviro-Septic® pipes enhances the supply of oxygen and facilitates efficient dispersal of treated wastewater. In order for the System Sand to function optimally, it is critical that the correct type and amount of System Sand is used when constructing the System. We recommend installers to get a sieve analysis done to ensure the sand being supplied meets System Sand specifications. See our technical bulletin for an in depth discussion on System Sand functions and the importance of obtaining a sieve analysis.
