STF-110 Septic Tank Effluent Filter Design
The effluent filter is composed of non directional polypropylene bristles that are would together with a stainless steel core. The contoured shape of the effluent filter creates a debris separation space that naturally sorts debris according to size and mass. This space also ensures even filter usage for a long lifespan.
Typical Service Intervals
Service intervals will vary depending upon many factors such as water usage, soap usage, garbage disposals, etc. The filter should be serviced at least every three years. For maximum protection it should be replaced about every 50,000 gallons of wastewater effluent. For average residential applications this correlates to about 1 year of service. Because the water usage and configurations of systems vary quite a bit from area to area and even in the same area depending upon when a system was installed, it is recommended that the filter be inspected annually.
Septic tank effluent filters come in various sizes rated at different maximum flow rates. Large filters can be used for high volume commercial applications and/or filters can be manifold together to meet the appropriate flow rate.
