Septic Tank Filters
Why fit a DrainX™ Septic Tank Filter?
DrainX™ septic tank filters prevent up to 70% of all suspended solids escaping from the tank into the soakaway. This helps to protect the soakaway drainage field from blockages and clogging. Our septic tank filters are slot filters. They simply push into the vertical part of the 'T' piece on the septic tank outlet pipe.

Septic tank soakaways heve a lifespan that is limited by the amount of suspended solids - little bits that float around - in the liquid that comes out of the tank. They are made up of hair, seeds, lint, floating organic matter, etc. The smaller the soakaway soil particles, (soils with clay or silt as part of their structure) the smaller the air spaces in the soil and the faster they block with these suspended solids.
Septic tank filters trap these particles and prevent them from clogging the soakaway soil. See the picture opposite. All these particles have been trapped. This filter had been in use for 3 months only.
DrainX™ septic tank filters have been scientifically proven to trap twice as many particles as slot filters
Benefits of DrainX™ Septic Tank Filters
Excellent Septic Tank Filtration That Is Adaptable & Economical
The Effluent Filter will require periodic cleaning. This cleaning interval depends on how the system is used. High fat content discharged into the foul drains will dramatically increase the need for cleaning, as will the use of antibacterial products and excess detergents. It is recommended that the filter be cleaned every time the tank is pumped as a minimum. Check the filter every month.
These effluent filters push into the vertical part of the outlet pipe in the settlement tank to prevent solids from exiting the tank and clogging the soakaway.
