Effluent Filters


Effluent Filter


Effluent filters are designed to extend the life of the absorption area by preventing solids from leaving the septic tank. The filter is installed inside the sanitary tee of the outlet baffle, leading to the absorption area. 


Effluent filters will, under normal conditions, operate efficiently between each maintenance pumping. It is suggested that the unit be cleaned every time the tank is serviced, every 2-4 years. Alpha Omega includes the cleaning and inspection of the effluent filter during each regular maintenance pumping.


Effluent filters are a wise investment for all new tank installations. Many older septic tanks can also have an effluent filter installed with a minor retrofit of the outlet baffle.
