Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. Purchased this filter when I had to repair the drain from the septic tank to the drain field -- old cement pipe had cracked. This seemed like the best option to help keep debris out of the drain field, and was recommended. Still too early to tell how successful it will be. Assembly was pretty straightforward, though I had to trim the T a bit to get it into the small hole of the tank entry. HD would do well to carry the smaller version of this product. A quality product and well made, and not all that expensive if it does what it says. May 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Much better than others online and cheaper Is a great value for the money. It is higher quality than more expensive ones. Only glitch was it wouldn't fit thru my old 9" hole in my tank, so we had to "fish" it into place using the main access hole. No big deal. Definitely does the job. May 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by As expected Its pretty straight forward. Its a septic filter. It has a convenient place to attach a 1" PVC pipe to extend the handle for deeper septic systems. It installed easy and appears to be easy to clean. We will see in about a year but so far so good. June 28, 2013
