I’m brand new to these forums although I’ve visited the site multiple times.

Could anyone recommend a sewage basin or similar in which I could install an effluent filter to put in line with the outlet pipe of my septic tank to my leach field? It would need two 4”ports on opposite sides, be deep enough for the outlet sanitary tee/filter and have top spacers available to reach the ground level. Subsurface water level is not a problem.

My septic tank doesn’t have an output filter and the access port is too far from the outlet to very easily put it into the tank.

Also, any recommendations on a filter?
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
