It's interesting how different parts of the country do things.... around here a septic and drainfield is basically 2 tanks totaling around 1500 -1800 gallons, and a drain bed that is a minimum of 900 square feet, depending on the amount of living space in the house....not the amount of bathrooms. I don't do to many, but we basically dig out the drain bed area, place 8"-10" of stone, then lay out the drainage pipe, and finish by placing more stone up to the top of the pipe, cover it with a layer of straw and your done. Sometimes the bed is square and somtimes it's rectangle.
