Gravelless Chamber systems
Gravelless leaching chambers are rapidly becoming
the product of choice for leach field applications over conventional
pipe and gravel systems. Their sophisticated construction offers less
intrusive installations with significantly greater drainage performance
and shock load capabilty.
Stone Industries is a leader in the installation
of these products. We proudly carry the Hancor Arc line of drainage
chambers. The Arc 18 septic leaching chamber is a sturdy, lightweight
plastic unit that combines maximized infiltrative surface area and
storage capacity with an improved structural design to handle most any
conventional leach field system challenge without sacrificing
Eljen GSF Biomatt Systems
When your installation requires extra capacity in
less space, the Eljen GSF delivers. While conventional systems rely on a
single biomat forming at the soil interface, the Eljen GSF adds a
second, primary biomat layer on the surface of its unique Bio-Mat
Stone Industries is a certified installer of
Eljen Biomatt and we have installed numerous Biomatt systems in a
variety of applications and configurations. Due to its relatively high
cost and sensitivity to high levels of grease in wastewater, these
systems will only make economic sense in installations where the space
restrictions or risk of damage to delicate ecosystems dictate its use.
Shallow Absorption Mounds
In situations where a normal gravity-fed drainage
field cannot be installed in native soil due to lack of useable soil, a
shallow absorption mound using imported sand and soil can be
constructed. Depending on the elevations involved, these mounds
may be gravity-fed or may require the installation of a pump system.
Stone Industries has specialized in these types
of systems for many years. We only use sand and soil mixtures from
the areas best suppliers and we always bring in plenty of material to
make sure we exceed the engineers requirements for soil depth, perk
rates, and overall performance. For a free quote on constructing
one of these fields, contact us at (518) 232-6707 or (800) 446-6331, or
engineering page for help getting started with plans.
Pressure Mound Tile Bed Systems
Pressure mounds are a sub-set of shallow
absorption and raised mound systems. Rather than distribute
wastewater through a distribution box and 4" pipes, these systems rely
on custom built pump driven pressurized 2" manifolds installed in stone
beds. The care required to install one of these properly means
homeowners should take special care in selecting contractors for
installation of these systems.
Stone Industries' highly experienced installation
team has built and installed many of these systems. We use only
the highest quality parts and materials on these systems with components
from SJ Rhombus, Hydromatic, and Hancor; and our installers take the
time and care to make sure all holes are drilled and aligned properly
and that manifolds are installed with appropriate amounts of rock and
fill materials. For a free quote your pressure system, contact us
at (518) 232-6707 or (800) 446-6331, or see our
page for help getting started with plans.
Traditional Pipe & Stone Systems
Before drainage chambers and other new
technologies came along, leach fields were generally constructed using
four inch perforated pipe surrounded with crushed stone. Over the
years the type of pipe has changed; these days it is generally made of
PVC. These systems have a long track record of good service and
lifespan and are still favored by engineers in certain applications.
Our team is well versed in these traditional
systems and we would by happy to build one for you. For a free
quote your traditional pipe and stone system, contact us at (518)
232-6707 or (800) 446-6331.
Drywells are large pre-cast concrete cylinders
with perforated sides. They are installed with open bottoms and
surrounded with a crushed stone curtain and textile covering on top.
Given the depth of usable soils needed to properly install one, they are
generally shunned by engineers these days, however they are still called
for in certain applications. There are a number of them out there
in service and they can sometimes be repaired or re-stoned without
having to replace the entire system. If you think you need a
drywell, or need a quote on having one repaired contact us at (518)
232-6707 or (800) 446-6331.
