Our county health department requires us to have 150 square foot of
volume in the drain field useing infiltrators!
Is this typicle or is it just our county?
They gave us a paper or the requirements for various sizes of
infiltrator type systems, and they all seemed to require much more
square footage than it seems would be nesisary.
Why different requirements than for the regular clay pipe systems?
Seems to me they are trying to discourage there use, but why since
they work so much better and are inexpensive, so we thought anyway.
We have decent soil absorbtion here in Florida and they don't do
perculation tests, rather they say that the hight above sea level is
the perculation test. This makes no since as soil absorbtion would
have nothing to do with height above sea level, unless of course if
you were at or below it. We are at about 150 foot here in our county.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
After reading this question Borg wanted answered I came across "a
spell checker w/ your newsreader wouldn't be a bad idea." I couldn't
help to think to myself how stuck up of a comment that is. No where
does it state you have to have "perfect spelling" and I see no reason
to use a spell checker as it is only a message board. Not like Borg is
creating a web page or anything to that matter and if they were I am
sure it would be perfect.
Help yourself to thinking what you want... :)
I only make a comment when really egregious...although in OP's case a
spelling checker may not do much good when "since" is used for "sense",
etc., the problem may be more deeply embedded than simply spelling...
I shall help myself to thinking what I want and thank you for the
permission. You making comments
about other people on message boards really says a lot about yourself.
Me, i'm just saying you should
mind your manners. Do you go around correcting people when they
pronounce their words wrong? I sure hope
not because you would be one busy person because no one is perfect all
the time. You must feel mightly
high up on that horse of yours correcting others in message boards.
Anyhow Borg, I hope you found the solution
to your problem. Take care.
