Does the system need a real leach field?
The dispersal field is constructed the same as a conventional field, the only difference is the size. Since The Clean Solution BioCon and settling chambers perform the same biological functions as a leach field there is no need to have a large leach field to provide aerobic treatment.
Can I use other proprietary devices in place of a pipe and stone field?
Yes. Any approved stone and pipe replacement system is acceptable, however, there are some that would not prove cost effective, but are still compatible with The Clean Solution system.
How do you size chambers or tubes?
The tubes are sized based on the field print conversion using the total footprint of the field and then judging how many tubes or chambers would be used for that space.
How do you vent the field of The Clean Solution?
Typically, The Clean Solution is vented through the house’s existing roof vent. Therefore, a field vent is unnecessary. When using the system on an application without a roof vent, a vent must be installed at or near the tank (i.e. a trailer park or campground must be vented at the tank). Certain proprietary leachfield devices require venting.
Are there any additives in the system?
No, the only thing that The Clean Solution system needs to run is air, which comes from the small mechanical air compressor.
Where does the air compressor go?
The air compressor can go anywhere above the snow line, but the most ideal place for it is in a garage or basement.
How much noise does the air compressor make?
The air compressor makes less noise than a refrigerator.
How much electricity does the air compressor require to run?
The air compressor requires approximately 80 watts and 1 amp, which can be thought of as the power required for a typical light bulb.
How often do I need to maintain the system?
The system maintenance is done at the same time the septic tank is pumped.
What does the system inspection consist of?
An AOS-trained technician or vendor inspects the media, effluent quality, dissolved O2 levels, settling chamber, performs a compression test on the air transfer system, and cleans or replaces the air filter.
What if I need to order replacement parts?
Contact AOS for replacement parts. We will also handle any maintenance or repairs.
Is the system exempt from certain setback rules or to ground water tables?
The Clean Solution system has received variances to State regulations on replacement systems. Variances would be applied for by the designer.
Do I need an effluent pump?
An effluent pump is only needed if the dispersal field is higher then the outlet of the tank.
