There are instances where the leach field is higher than the tank that requires pumping the effluent up to the field.
You need to contact your health dept as they generally have strict rules/guidelines tailored for your area.
When you order gravel just tell them it's for a septic drain field - they'll know which gravel to send out. You could also use a gravel less system.
