Peat filter mound septic system questions

Posted by sunroomguy (My Page) on

Our septic designer is suggesting a mound system with peat media filter. We have a small area for the system and this requires a smaller footprint (this will override the higher cost). These are relatively new to our area. Should i have any concerns about this type of system? What brands are available? is one brand any better than the others? What does the increased maintenance costs consist of? Your knowledgable reponse will be appreciated.

The bigger question is really will the health department approve it?
