    I have an aerobic septic system which has two rotor heads on it now and I'm thinking about expanding the system. Has anyone ever added any heads to one or know aprox how many a aerobic pump could support?

    I've seen up to four on a system. If you had the pump data it would be helpful.
    What are the nozzle sizes in the rotors?

    Most systems do not run long enough to do much good past 2 to 4 heads.

    I have one property that I take care of that has six heads large house and lots of kids. I think every job would be different. I would put as many heads on as your pump can handle to spread out the effluent. I would not hit trees or shrubs or overlap an irrigated area.
