Default Easy flow septic system

Anybody have an opinion?? Considering going this route, but know little about them. It's a new construction in eastern nc, def right much clay in the soil, and it will be my personal home. Thanks a bunch. Justin

Polystyrene is closed cell... but not resistant to many household chemicals, so it will eventually soak up water, when it breaks down. That's how I see it.

Show me something that's been in service for 20 yrs, with no problems, then I'd consider it.

The inspectors will tell you what to put in and also size the system based on how many bedrooms in the home.

Your installer needs to be licensed now in NC. too. As far as the large diameter system, they work great. I have some in houses I built in 02 and there have been no problems.

The tank needs to be pumped at least every 7 years, that is where problems occur.

If it is the same stuff I am thinking about I have some trenches setup for french drains around the perimeter of the flower beds and a larger patio I am planning and have considered it in place of a conventional system.
