Underground Septic Chambers
CULTEC Recharger and Contactor underground septic chambers offer a wastewater management alternative to concrete galleries and conventional pipe and stone systems, especially for sites with space constraints. The Recharger models are high-profile, high-capacity septic chambers. The Contactor models are lower profile, lower capacity chambers, typically used for septic installations with depth restrictions or where larger units may not be approved by the local authority. Their fully open bottoms and perforated sidewalls, along with the use of CULTEC Filter Fabric, offer greater contact with the primary leaching area, thereby delivering maximum infiltration capability. The chambers may reduce overall system size requirements by up to 50 percent when approved by the local authority.
Cultec has added internal manifold capability to its Recharger 150 and Contactor 100 subsurface stormwater chambers, eliminating the need for fabricated pipe manifolds. The internal manifold is created by inserting an HVLV SFCx2 Feed Connector into the portal located on the sidewall of the stormwater chamber. A polyethylene liner beneath the feed connector locations prevents scouring. The inclusion of two side portals on every chamber allows manifolding to take place at any point within the stormwater management system.
