Use of a Filter Bed

The filter bed is an alternative type of leaching bed. It may be used on sites where there isClass 4 Filter Bed insufficient area for a conventional bed or where there are natural features such as treed areas that minimize the available leaching bed area.

Unlike a conventional bed, (an absorption trench leaching bed in which each line of the distribution pipe is in a separate trench) a filter bed allows the sewage effluent to enter a series of distribution pipes that are set in a common layer of stone. The stone layer covers a surface of filter sand overlying the native soils.

Filter beds can be installed either in-ground, partially raised, partly excavated or fully raised.
