Septic system contractors have two choices:

1.  Tell people what they can do. 

2.  Tell people what they can't do.

If you install our septic system you can

  • Do more than one load of laundry at a time

  • Run more than one water using device at a time

  • Host large gatherings, holidays, parties, etc. etc.

If you install a traditional septic systems you can't

  • Do more than one load of laundry at a time

  • Run more than one water using device at a time

  • Host large gatherings, holidays, parties, etc. etc.

"Onsite Installer Magazine in a monthly publication that services those who design, manufacture,

engineer and install septic systems and other onsite wastewater treatment systems..."


The April 16, 2020 edition published an article titled "Top 10 Reasons the Effluent Filter Plugged"

written by Sara Heger PhD. Following is an excerpt from the article.


If an effluent screen seems to need excessive cleaning, it may be that the homeowner has too many

solids or chemicals or too much water going down the drains. Here are common causes of premature

clogging to warn homeowners against.

1. Large volumes of wastewater generated in a short period of time can result in turbulence in the

septic tank and reduced retention time, which can lead to solids plugging the effluent screen (right). 

Leaks and large parties are examples of such uses.


2. Large laundry days. Tell homeowners to not do all the laundry in one day. Spread wash loads throughout the week

and wash at times when there is not a lot of water being used in the home. Do not run multiple water-using devices

at the same time, such as showering or running the dishwasher while doing the laundry.

When an effluent filter completely plugs, it creates serious issues

A plugged filter does not allow wastewater to pass through the septic tank into the pump chamber. As a result, wastewater backs up until it reaches the top of the septic tank. When the tank is full, the wastewater enters the inlet pump coming

from the house. When it reaches the house, it surfaces in basement floor drains, toilets, and showers.                                        


The second problem occurs when the plugged filter is pulled out of the septic tank to be cleaned. The backed up wastewater along with scum and sludge floating on top of the water surges through the septic tank outlet into the pump chamber.                                                                                                                      

The excess wastewater in the pump chamber causes the pump to run much longer than normal. The excess water causes the drainfield to become severely saturated. When the pump stops, the solid waste that entered the drainfield settles to the

bottom of the lateral pipe(s) causing orifices to plug.


Plugged orifices cause permanent uneven wastewater dispersal accelerating biomat buildup.

This situation does not provide any warning until it is too late to do anything about it.

New Septic Solutions utilizes a ClearFlow septic system pressure filter

Traditional 'gravity' filters are installed in the septic tank; pressure filters are installed on the outlet of the effluent pump. 

This design prevents large volumes generated in a short period of time from having an effect on the filter. 

It completely eliminates the possibility of raw sewage backing-up into the lower levels of a house. 

It also eliminates any problem caused by running multiple water using devices at the same time. 

Sara Hager also wrote an article for Onsite Installer Magazine in the Dec. 2018 edition

titled Benefits of Timed Dosing and Flow Equalization.

“Utilizing timed dosing instead of demand dosing mitigates variations or peaks in wastewater flow.

Peak flows from the dwelling are stored and then dosed to subsequent components evenly throughout the day.

Timed dosing configurations are more commonly found in systems that include advanced pretreatment

devices or flow equalization.”.  Click to read the article in its entirety

Six bedroom split-bed mound 

Contractor:     Klein Excavating & Septic 

Location:        Franklin, WI

Dimensions:   Each cell is 47 feet long x 39" wide

Designed by Nick Klein with an assist from Bob Berceau, New Septic Solutions.

Bob is a CST and licensed septic system designer in Wisconsin. 

The owners wanted smallest footprint possible to diminish length, 

reduce mound height, and preserve natural vegetation. 

Our system receives significant size reductions because it reduces bacterial wastewater contaminate levels below 30mg/L BOD's and 30mg/L TDS

(Total Dissolved Solids). 


Treatment levels were achieved in stringent NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) testing over a six month time period.
