CULTEC Septic Products
CULTEC Contactor® and Recharger® septic chambers replace conventional pipe and stone or concrete leachfields. They may be installed in trench or bed configurations according to acceptance by local regulations. Contact area is maximized by the fully open bottoms, perforated sidewalls, and the use of CULTEC No. 410. Filter Fabric. Units may be configured in trench or bed installations using gravity feed or pressure distribution. Due to their greater contact area, CULTEC chambers are commonly allowed to reduce the overall system sizing requirements up to 50% when approved by the local authority.
CULTEC offers the largest variety of chamber sizes and therefore is able to accommodate almost any site parameter.
Sizes range from 8.5” to 30.5” tall. Leaching capabilities range from 3.03 ft²/ft to 9.8 ft²/ft.*

CULTEC No. 410™ Filter Fabric is an accessory item used with CULTEC’s plastic septic chambers.
Contact area is maximized by the use of CULTEC No. 410™ Filter Fabric. The CULTEC No. 410™ Filter Fabric works as a sponge wetting the entire surface area of the chambers in gravel-less installations and also prevents soil intrusion.
CULTEC No. 410 Filter Fabric is must be used when installing our chambers as a gravel-less system (using sand or soil) in order to prevent intrusion onto the primary leaching area of the CULTEC septic chamber. The fabric is placed directly over the top of the chamber in gravel-less installations. Our filter fabric possesses specific properties which are required for gravel-less installations. The use of alternative filter fabrics may void the product warranty. The fabric works as a “wick” or a “sponge” and allows the effluent to creep up the fabric.
