i've been looking into these for quite some time. the state of TN uses them in environmentally sensitive areas. most of my information came from them. as far as i know, a traditional septic tank is required in front of them, in all states. has anyone ever used one of them for their home? i'm wondering how they may work on a septic that fails frequently. mine isn't exactly failing, it's just so wet here, it should never, ever been approved for a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath home. hits standing water 12" down. there's a wet weather spring uphill across the road, that drains into the drain field, and we get about 80" a year. lucky it's mostly only me here. i'm wondering what would happen if i planted things like cat tails and elephant ears in the drain field. would it really mess up the field lines?
