Septic System Simulator

Envisioning the World Around Us


EnVision Environmental Education is proud to introduce the EnVision Septic System Simulator. The Simulator represents a cross-section of a conventional septic system found in many rural areas of the U.S. and Canada. Simulator design includes a septic tank with inlet pipe, outlet pipe to distribution box and leach bed. Dye can be introduced into the inlet pipe which fills the septic tank and liquid flows out into the perforated pipe and shows absorption into a gravel absorption field. In the Septic Tank is a permanent "sludge" layer at the bottom and the liquid dye has a foaming agent that acts as a "scum" layer on top of the liquid in the Tank. The baffles in the tank function to keep the scum in the Tank and only the liquid discharges into the outlet pipe under normal operation conditions. On the left of the simulator are 2 monitoring wells. Well #1 extends just below the water table and draws from the unconfined aquifer that receives the septic discharge. Well #2 extends below a clay layer (aquitard) into a confined aquifer that represents the local groundwater. Included in the accessories are 2 siphon bottles that allow continous pumping (sampling) of the monitoring wells.

Septic System Simulator includes:

Pre-assembled Simulator (approximately 19.5" long x 12" high x 8" deep)
aquarium pump
2 siphon bottles
syring unit (for pumping wells)
red dye with foaming agent
large wash bottle
flexible drain tube
free septic system educational packet
instruction manual
instructional video

Simulator is pre-assembled and arrives with all the accessories for immediate use, including a manual and video on how to use the simulator.
