The BioDiffuser plastic leaching chamber is a gravel-less alternative for on-site septic leach field systems. The design objective is to provide maximum infiltrative surface area while allowing effluent to flow in all directions. This has been achieved by combining the traditional, open bottom with a series of louvers along the sides. The louvers are designed to allow effluent to pass into the backfill while preventing the backfill from migrating into the chamber.
- No gravel means greater storage volume, no damage to soil from heavy equipment and no concerns about dirty gravel
- Open bottom eliminates masking or shadow effect caused by gravel
- Louver openings optimize infiltrative surface area and prevent soil infiltration along the side walls
- BioDiffuser chambers are constructed of high-density polyethylene, which is inert to sewage
