Septic Effluent Filters

Gag Simtech 15" X 48" screened pump vault makes a STEP system in any septic tank.  Economical solution to many problems related to pumped effluent discharge. 
Gag-Simtech Pressure Effluent Filter

Sim/Tech STF-100 pressure filter protects pressurized effluent distribution systems from clogging with suspended solids. Pressurized wastewater distribution systems; mound systems, drip systems, sand filters etc. treat effluent. 
Pressurized systems pump effluent to treatment by a low pressure effluent pump. The drain field is where the problems show up. Lateral piping has many small holes to allow gray water to seep into the soil.   It doesn't take a lot of contaminants to plug the drain holes. With each hole that becomes plugged the efficiency falls, until the system eventually fails

Polylok residential PL-122 is rated for flows up to 1500 GPD and features a patented ball check and filter housing.  Waste streams of a typical 3-bedroom home averages approximately 450-gallons per day.  Effluent filters extend the life of drain fields by preventing solids from  entering and clogging them. Floating grease, hair and polyester threads and other solids and semi-solids present a great threat to reliable operation of a drain field. A properly installed and maintained effluent filter like the PL-122 serves as an inexpensive protection for your system.  Easy to maintain, each year the filter element can be pulled out and hoses off over the open septic tank cover letting the trapped solids settle safeley into the bottom of the septic tank. 

Clean the the PL-122 worry-free.  When the filter element is removed the red ball-check pops over the effluent inlet and prevents floating solids, hair and grease from accidentally flowing into and fouling the drain field.
Septic tank discharge filters help prevent expensive septic system failure. Polylok corrosion resistant polyethylene Effluent Filters are designed for use in either residential or commercial septic tank applications. Advantages include dual filtration, competitive pricing, innovative design that provides the greatest amount of filter surface area and easy maintenance. Patented ball check shut-off eliminates the need to pump down the tank to clean the filter and prevents the undesirable flow of unfiltered effluent into the drain fields. TGR offers septic filters of all types from clean and re-use Polylok Ball Check to Disposable.
