It's a built up leach field for areas with a high water table.

We call em turkey mounds around here. The ground has so much ledge rock in certain areas, there is no other way to install a septic. Well except maybe dynamite... ohh I also learned in high school not to use one as a shooting backstop lol, my buddies old man was seriously pissed off when we turned his into Swiss cheese one afternoon.

Looks awesome J! The code here dosent say we cant valve off an expansion tank either. But when I do install one I remove the lever handle and wire it to the valve so no one shuts it off by accident. they dont make you install bonding jumper between hot and cold down there? Or do the sparkies have that job? I like the dielectric unions too.

Never seen the jumpers they bond to our cold some times. I think it's when our cold is copper and is underground. I think they are useig it as the grounding rod. Or maybe not. Drive your own dam rod I don't like them attaching chit to my pipe

Now I did a air traffic control tower at the air port and there were grounding rods every where. Copper mesh under sub floors in the computer rooms. I mean copper wire was all over the place inside and out attached to our pipes all over the place . A crack head with a sawz all and some big bolt cutters would be rich in a day steeling all that wire.
