    That is a big field 8 runs at 125 feet long I guess it being a commercial building the field needs to be that big. Nice to see a 161 doing a field they work the best small enough to dig the runs.

    Around here thats on the small side:rolleyes: We were supposed to have 1200' for 3 bedrooms but I didn't want to clear that big of area so I talked the health inspector into 2 18x20 sand filters that run into an 8' x 75' leach field:rolleyes:

    With a sand mound system you can have a signifcantly smaller drain field the average residential sand mound is 20-30 grand installed.

    I was watching the show Pawn Stars they had a kitchen chair with a hole in it supposidly that was the toilet back in the 40s :laugh:

    Here the permit is actually written in sq/ft.
    This job I am posting about would be 3000 sq/ft

    1000 linear ft , 3 ft wide trench.

    Here you would have to go to an alternative type system for a 3 bedroom house that required 1200 linear foot as the state would not allow a conventional system.
    I would really be interested in how Ohio determines these things.

    Me too but I'm gonna guess it has something to do with money:hammerhead: I don't have sand mounds I have pits so the yards still flat.
    But any how it varries from county to county on whats allowed and whats required but most now are the mound systems but if you pay to have the soil tested most of the time you can get away with just a reguler leach field:rolleyes:

    Here is some more pics.
    One is of an electrical connection box that is really well thought out.
    One shows the cut the GC did before I started and I am suprised he did not get us near a restrictive layer because of the amount of cut.
