Standard Infiltrator ChamberSource: Infiltrator Systems Inc.
With the Standard Infiltrator Chamber System, the whole leachfield system can be delivered in one pickup truck load. It can be installed by just two people, one on a backhoe and the other installing the plastic units. The chambers interlock end-to-end and can be assembled into trenches or beds. They're suitable for a variety of applications, including mound, serial-distributed, and pressure-dosed systems.
Each chamber has an open bottom and louvered sidewall. And, because they're constructed of PolyTuff plastic, a proprietary blend of polyolefin, the chambers are strong and are impervious to wastewater constituents.
The Standard Infiltrator model has an AASHTO H-10 load rating and can withstand 16,000 lb/axle, with the proper compacted cover. It's hollow interior allows each chamber to store up to 77 gallons of household effluent.
