Conventional Trench System

With a conventional trench system the natural soil or imported sand are used as the filtering medium. There are no electrical components with this type of system when operated by gravity flow. A large surface area is required for the installation of a conventional trench system. A conventional trench system can be installed either above or below existing grade. This type of system is very common where space isn’t a problem.

Filter Bed System

A filter bed system is often used when space is limited or when there are poor soil conditions. Processed sand is brought to the site and placed in the area of the bed. The filter bed is installed in the processed sand either above or below existing grade.


We handle soil sample collection, permit application as well as the design of your septic system using the most advanced technology available.


Our experienced team can handle any installation while keeping safety, the environment and your home or cottage a top priority.


We will be launching our maintenance programs soon. In the meantime, contact us to learn more about options for service agreements.

Our Equipment

Mac Taylor uses modern equipment to find and diagnose your septic system, minimizing downtime during repair or determining if it’s time for a replacement. If you are a homeowner who is unsure of where your septic system is located on your property, our sewer detector and camera can assist in finding your system. Our sewer camera is a non-invasive tool that can be used to see the general condition of your system without digging up your yard.
