Filters go into the outlet baffle and stop carryover from leaving the tank. They help minimize the amount of carryover going into your leach field. These should be installed and cleaned manually.
Risers go on the septic tank manholes and raise the level to the ground surface or just below. They are essential in the winter when the ground is frozen. Risers give you easy access to locate and pump your tank. They eliminate locating and digging costs, which pays for itself by eliminating those costs.
Not all systems are gravity feed systems; some use a pump to move water to the leach field. Inside the pump chamber is a pump that does just that. They typically last about 10 years. When something is wrong or your pump or floats need to be replaced, an alarm will sound. Call us at (413) 583-2138
and we will replace these pieces as necessary.
