To continue right along with our series, it is time to talk about the evaporation system. Evaporations or ET’s, are great for dry and barren areas that lack vegetation and rain. This type of septic system uses natural evaporation of the waste using a sand barrier as well as planting grass and other vegetation above the drainfield to create transpiration.
The septic system is similar to ones mentioned earlier, however, the drainfield has a ditch that is lined with an impassable barrier. Located on the bottom of the ditch are punctured drainpipes that are then coated with a layer of gravel. Then a layer of sand is placed over the gravel and is made to be rounded above the ground. All the waste from the home is evaporated and absorbed into the atmosphere. The way the system does this is by using the sand and the plants to naturally absorbed the waste material. This septic system is best during warmer months of the year. Many choose this type of system for a vacation home or a home in warmer climates.
