For All Your Septic Tank Needs

Percolation Area


At Abbey Environmental we provide comprehensive septic tank services including the design and installation of percolation areas.

A percolation area is an important element to any waste water treatment system. Consisting of perforated pipes in a ground trench, the percolation area provides filtration and treatment of waste water. The water passes through the perforated pipes and the unsaturated subsoil below the trench provides the filtration. Depending on the depth of your trench and the drainage ability of the soil, you many need to add secondary or tertiary treatment to the percolation area. These additional systems include pressured polishing filters, sand filters, and puraflos.

Abbey Environmental offers complete percolation area design and installation services. Based upon the initial assessment, we will be able to recommend the best percolation area and additional systems for you and your property.
