Mods please move if this is in the wrong forum...
Is anyone familiar with these two septic system types and the benefits of both? Our soil scientist is giving us all these reasons (soil conditions, aesthetics, county permit regulations, etc.) to go with the more expensive hoot system, but frankly I am a bit leery when anyone tries to sell me on a specific product. 

Thanks in advance!

Cara,   

    Drip systems and plastic chamber systems (like the Infiltrator) are completely different.  It's quite possible that your soils engineer is giving you the straight poop (sorry, couldn't resist!).  I believe the drip systems are good for saturated soils, which might be the case for your location. 

   Here's some general info on those system types.

Thanks for the info, and the pun! :) We are in a wetland area, so maybe saturation is the issue. At any rate, we have decided to go with the hoot, and hopefully it's the right choice!
