Pipe And Stone

 
Pipe and Stone septic systems are one of the first true septic systems. They have been around for years and you can still find a pipe and stone that is 30 or more years old still working efficiently if it was installed correctly, proper maintenance, and used properly. They are relatively large in size and are not suitable for all lots or areas. They have a 4" perforated PVC pipe laid on top of 6" of septic stone at a center to center spacing of 5'. The septic stone itself is about 1 1/2" in size. Then stone is placed in between each PVC pipe and 2" is placed on top. Resin paper or hay is then placed on top so sand, dirt, and other contaiminents do not enter the clean stone.
