Advantages of the RUCK ACCORDION System

  1. RUCK accordion fields are designed to last indefinitely. They are based on long term acceptance rates (LTAR) of the BioMat fabric and the site, not the 15 to 30 year half life of conventional systems.
  2. RUCK accordions are cost efficient.
  3. Failure of soil interface is minimized because primary biomat layer forms inside the fabric.
  4. Effluent infiltrates into the soil beneath after being filtered through fabric and 6″ of sand.
  5. Accordions provide better protection of ground water because of fabric and 6″ of sand filtration prior to parent soil treatment. Unlike other systems, accordions do not permit high static heads that push the pollutants into the soil.
  6. Accordions and sand cause steady infiltration, minimizing occurrence of sudden ponding on parent soil. This results in aerobicanaerobic stability in soil and biodegrading bioresistant pollutants in the effluent. Sudden soil ponding in other leach fields results in aerobicanaerobic destabilization so that a bioresistant pollutants such as phenolic compounds move into the soil.
  7. Long term siltation, that can bring about failure in other leach fields, is prevented.
  8. Accordions, permitting shallower installation, provide greater evapotranspiration than occurs with the conventional stone leach or chamber leach fields because fabrics permit capillary flow and vapor transfer.
  9. The accordion fins are surrounded by sand. The external loads are carried by the sand.
