CULTEC No. 410™ non-woven geotextile is an accessory item used with CULTEC’s plastic septic chambers.
Contact area is maximized by the use of CULTEC No. 410™ Non-woven Geotextile. The CULTEC No. 410™ Non-Woven Geotextile works as a sponge wetting the entire surface area of the chambers in gravel-less installations and also prevents soil intrusion.
CULTEC No. 410 Non-woven Geotextile 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 geotextile possesses specific properties which are required for gravel-less installations. The use of alternative geotextiles may void the product warranty. The fabric works as a “wick” or a “sponge” and allows the effluent to creep up the fabric.
