SB2 Pipe Trench Installation Detail

This document is SB2 Pipe Trench Installation Detail. A diagram with descriptors and notes explains the pipe trench.

The pipe trench diagram shows the filter fabric, 8” or 10” SB2 pipe and various minimum/maximum widths/depths.

Notes explain pipe trench that the width shall be a minimum of 18”. Cover must be a minimum of 6” and maximum of 8”. No gravel required. The trench must be deep enough to ensure that the flow line of the septic tank is at least one inch above the top of the SB2. Trench lengths must not exceed the maximum allowable lengths for conventional gravel systems. The trench bottom should be level with a maximum slope of 1” per 100 lineal feet. The 20 foot lengths of SB2 must be placed in the trench with the green stripe up and joined with ADS split couplings. The drain guard should then be pulled over the joint to reduce soil infiltration. Either plain end caps or optional inspection/cleaning port should be used to connect laterals. SB2 lines should be held in place during initial backfilling to prevent movement of the pipe in the trench. Large clumps and rocks should not be used as backfill.
