Going Green Smart Septic Systems
Dixie Septic Tank
Inc. has been Green for many years. We promote Green septic
systems and environmentally friendly drain fields. Our drain
field pipe, along with the header pipe and fittings are
all made from recycled materials. Our drain fields are made
from reclaimed concrete broken down to provide the best
drain flow. Win-Win-Win!
Let us tell you how and why. For over
40 years we have been a leader in this industry of providing
the finest and longest lasting and trouble free septic systems
in the state of Florida. Yes we are familiar with many of
the alternative systems that have come down the pike during
Our choice has been to stay with the original tried and
true system of rock and pipe. You just can’t do any
better in the long run. Remember you only get what you pay
for, and you don’t want to go through the exercise
of replacing your system. That’s why we do it the
old fashion way.
One of the basic beliefs of our business has always been
to provide a quality product that will last and not harm
the environment. We feel we are accomplishing this every
day, and appreciate your support. After all we have grandkids
and great grandkids that will be here in the 21st century,
and we want to leave them with a clean environment.
Now for the Green
Green Septic Tank Systems and Environmentally Friendly
Since the very beginning we have made our own concrete septic
tanks. They have been made from a recycled concrete mixture
along with cement, instead of filling up the landfills with
concrete. We have put the material from the old roads, driveways,
sidewalks, bridges, and building and other scrap concrete
to use. We recycle the concrete and put it back into other
uses. One of these is the making of septic tanks.
Saving our environment and going Green.
Our tanks have an easy access port to pull the filter for
cleaning. Another Green step that has been in use for years.
Ask the competition how to access their tanks and how to
get to their filters for cleaning? You will be surprised
at what you have to do. Can you lift up a heavy 120-pound
manhole lid to access their filter? Do you even know where
it is located? How much of your yard do you have to dig
||Recycled Material Pipe
We make our own drain field pipe, along with the
header pipe and fittings. All of this is made from
recycled plastic bottles and other containers.
Again this keeps from filling up our landfills and
preserves our environment. We have been using recycled
plastic for our products for over 15 years.
From the concrete septic tanks, to the drainfield
pipe and the recycled rock, Dixie Septic is GREEN.
Reclaimed Rock in the Drain Field
Just what purpose does the rock do? It filters
any last bacteria that may move out of the tank into the
drainfield. A lot can move from the tank into the drainfield
and this impacts our water. Doesn’t it seem right
if given the opportunity, that we should filter the water
one more time before entering the soil below? In Roman times
they had it right the first time they used rocks to filter
the water! That’s why Dixie still does the pipe and
rock systems. That’s doing it right and doing it green.
The rock that is used in your drainfield is also recycled
concrete. Again this saves our landfills and preserves our
environment. We have been using recycled concrete for over
15 years to provide you with a superior system.
Our competition uses no rock and the water goes directly
into the soil and into the ground water and aquifer below
without being filtered by the rock.
We manufacture the pipe that is used in your system, It
is made up of thousands of ground up plastic milk bottles,
and soda bottles and other recycled plastic items. This
certainly is saving our environment from all of the plastics
used in the United States. Showing that Dixie has gone green
for you and the future of our children and we are saving
No one else in this industry can and has done what we have
accomplished in providing you with the best septic system
known to man. Of course the State of Florida Department
of Health, assuring you of a quality product, must approve
all that we do including the materials we use.
This is a story of doing it right; it is a story of our
“Rock and Pipe” system. We may even compare
our system to the alternative drainfields available on the
market today. I must point out in all fairness some important
differences between us and our competition. It is a true
story of a working septic system that will last for many,
many years to come.
Our Company, (Dixie Septic Tank Inc. of Orange City Florida)
has been in business since 1968. We still do things the
old fashion way. Meaning we use the “Old Tried and
True Rock and Pipe System”. The system with the longest
running record of quality and operation. This system has
been around since Roman Times. “If it’s not
broke don’t fix it”.
