    The environmental health specialist (EHS) at your county health department might be able to answer questions if you have a failing system. The EHS is the one who issues the permits and makes construction inspections.

    My gravel trench system failed 4 years after it was installed. It was installed per specs of a contracted soil scientist, however; he had miscalculated the depth. I was forced to install a new one to proper depth that perks well. Used the EZ-Lay drain tile and the system has been working well for 24 years now. Per USDA regs, the tank is pumped every nine years and the discharge outlet is inspected.

    If you ask the questions, you might get an answer. Nobody is going to admit being a turd wrassler.

    Depending where you are located, look up Banks Septic if you can't find what you need here.
