Homeowner's Information

Eljen Corporation has over 35 years of success in the onsite wastewater industry. Our products are recognized by regulatory officials and experts in the industry as some of the most reliable wastewater treatment technologies in the marketplace today.

Our main product lines are alternative drainfield or leachfield technologies, meaning that they come after a septic tank to disperse wastewater.  Our products are used typically when there is not enough space for a conventional stone and pipe system, or if a certain treatment level is needed.  The system area depends on how many bedrooms your home has, state or local regulations, and site characteristics (what kind of soils, where the water table is, and if there is another limiting factor like bedrock/ledgerock).

To keep your Eljen system in good working order, you should have your septic tank pumped as needed (typically every 3 years).  More "Dos and Don'ts" for your system are below.
