"If it won't perk -
then it won't work - unless you make it Perc-Rite!"
This article contains information & diagrams of both
the conventional septic system as well as the unconventional "perc-rite" drip emitter septic system.
Using modern septic technological advancements like drip
emitter systems, one can also profit by developing real estate that was previously unable to be developed!

Perc-rite Drip Email Inquiry:
Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly! I did have a few questions
about the Perc-Rite systems.
First, so far as basic questions go, how would you explain the difference
between drip emitter systems and conventional systems to someone who's not familiar with either?
Second, how have they worked out so far? Have homeowner/developer experiences
been generally good? Are there any specific issues that homeowners need to be aware of before installing them?
Do they truly make undevelopable land developable? Have you worked with any developers who have used the system to do that? If so, how has it worked out (and if
you can perhaps put me in touch with any of them, I would really appreciate it!)?
Let me know what you think. Thanks so much!
Reply from Don Wolf:
It was my pleasure responding to your inquiry.
As to the difference between conventional systems and drip emitter systems, conventional systems use passive technology to
transpire waste water (effluent... see Septic 101) into the absorption area. Drip emitter systems use active means to
do the work. They pump the effluent into the ground in the absorption areas.
Drip emitter systems have been around
for about twenty years. They were developed in Israel as a means of reclaiming desert areas using fresh water to provide
consistent distribution to water these areas evenly. Waste water drip systems used this even distribution method to
keep the discharge below surface for proper treatment. We have several communities in the Atlanta, Georgia area that
were able to be developed because of this technology. We even have a POTW (Publicly Owned Treatment Works) plant in Cherokee
and Forsyth Counties, Georgia using this technology to dispose of their out flows in an environmentally safe manner.
that confront homeowners with these systems are fairly basic. System service requirements are about the same as but
are a bit more critical than conventional systems.
The areas that have been able to be developed through use
of these systems are on public record at most of our County Environmental Health offices throughout Georgia, Virginia, North
and South Carolinas, Texas, and other States.

The Drip-Emitter System is used when the conventional gravity system
cannot be used due to poor absorption rates, proximity to subsurface restrictive layers or high water tables.
These systems force the waste water into the soil using pressure!
