  • Advanced Enviro-Septicâ„¢ Systems Achieve Even Distribution without Pressure Dosing

    Abstract: Advanced Enviro-Septic™ Systems (AES) do not use pressure distribution. Pumps are used only if necessary to gain elevation to the treatment field. Pressure distribution has the potential to disrupt the settling of solids within the pipe. Testing has confirmed that AES achieves even distribution throughout the system naturally, through the development of a controlled bacterial ...
