Why Drip Dispersal?
Drip Dispersal is a land application system for dispersal of wastewater effluent in decentralized environments. Drip utilizes time dosed, low volume, equally distributed doses over an entire absorption area while at the same time providing final treatment and recycle back into the environment. Drip provides optimum conditions for groundwater recharge to the receiving environment. It is ideal for any size system: single family homes, schools, churches, state parks, communities, commercial sites, etc. Drip systems are aesthetically pleasing and are installed subsurface utilizing the out-of-sight out-of-mind theory. Drip fields lend themselves to passive recreation with year round natural irrigation.
“Time dosed” systems provide for managing rest times between doses, peak flow notification, excess flow alarms and helps prevent soil saturation by maintaining an aerobic environment at the tubing interface. Drip is ideal for shallow installations which maximizes the standoff to any site restrictions (i.e. rock, seasonal water table, etc.) Sloping sites and/or wooded sites are not a problem. Drip Dispersal is utilized in both warm and cold climates 365 days per year. Drip can reduce storage requirements and may offer a reduced area footprint compared to conventional systems. Drip is a reliable, proved and permanent option for your wastewater dispersal needs.
• Pressure compensation - all drippers deliver equal flow, even on sloped or rolling terrain.
• Unique flow path - Turbonet technology provides more control of water and a high resistance to clogging.
• Continuous self-flushing dripper design - flushes debris, as it is detected - throughout operation, not just at the beginning or end of a cycle. Ensures uninterrupted dripper operation.
• Single hole dripper outlet from tubing:
- Better protection against root intrusion
- Allows the dripperline to be used in subsurface applications without need for chemical protection
• Drippers capture water flow from the center of the tubing - ensures that only the cleanest flow enters the dripper.
• Built-in physical root barrier - drippers are protected from root intrusion without the need for chemical protection. Water exits dripper in one location while exiting the tubing in another.
• Three dripper flow rates - provides the broadest range of flow rates available. Allows the designer to match the dripperline to any soil or slope condition.
• Bioline tubing is completely wrapped in purple - easily identifying it for non-potable use, regardless of how the tubing is installed.
• Anti-bacterial-impregnated drippers - prevents buildup of microbial slime.
• Can be used subsurface - Bioline can be installed on-surface, under cover or subsurface.
• No special storage requirements - does not degrade if stored outdoors.
• Techfilter compatible - an optional level of protection, provides a limited lifetime warranty against root intrusion.
• Typically installed following a treatment process
• Can be used with domestic septic tank effluent with proper design, filtration and operation
• Reuse applications including municipally treated effluent designated for irrigation and other disinfected and non-disinfected water sources.
