Drip Dispersal

Drip dispersal, also known as drip irrigation, is a wastewater disposal method used in areas where conventional septic systems or drainfields are not suitable due to specific soil or site conditions. It involves the controlled distribution of treated wastewater directly into the soil through a network of small-diameter pipes with emitters or drippers.

Here are the key features of a drip dispersal system:

  • Precise Water Distribution:

    Drip dispersal systems deliver treated wastewater in small, controlled doses directly to the soil surface, allowing for efficient absorption.

  • Emitters or Drippers:

    Emitters, typically placed at regular intervals along the distribution pipes, control the flow of wastewater and disperse it evenly.

  • Low Flow Rates:

    Drip systems operate at low flow rates, which helps prevent soil saturation and promote even absorption

  • Adaptability to Challenging Soils

    Drip systems are suitable for sites with challenging soil conditions, such as clayey or sandy soils that may not effectively absorb wastewater.

  • Reduced Surface Exposure:

    Compared to conventional systems, drip dispersal minimizes surface exposure of wastewater, reducing the risk of contact with humans or animals.

  • Space Efficiency:

    Drip systems can be designed to accommodate smaller areas, making them a viable option for sites with limited space.

Advantages Of Drip Dispersal Systems

  • Ideal for sites with low permeability
  • Subsurface so no loss of ground to mounds or percolation areas
  • Suitable for sites with elevation and slope issues
  • No mess or big machinery necessary for handling large quantities of stone etc., as required for conventional systems.

TPW Systems Ltd. can supply drip dispersal systems with:

  • After care and maintenance
  • Integrated flushing systems
  • Purpose built installation machinery
  • Certification of installation and compliance.
  • Site specifically designed specification and report
  • Fully integrated Wastewater Treatment Unit and Dripfield

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What area do TPW Systems cover ?

The Percolation Area is a designated space where treated effluent is evenly distributed over a specific area of soil. This allows for the final stage of natural filtration before the water returns to the environment.

2. How much does the typical septic tank upgrade cost?

The Percolation Area is a designated space where treated effluent is evenly distributed over a specific area of soil. This allows for the final stage of natural filtration before the water returns to the environment.

3. Do TPW Systems do a site visit?

The Percolation Area is a designated space where treated effluent is evenly distributed over a specific area of soil. This allows for the final stage of natural filtration before the water returns to the environment.

4. How long does the process take to upgrade a septic tank ?

The Percolation Area is a designated space where treated effluent is evenly distributed over a specific area of soil. This allows for the final stage of natural filtration before the water returns to the environment.
