The New DuraFiberTM Lid: A Major Technological Advance
Orenco Systems has launched a more damage-resistant septic system lid — one that will resist breakage from lawn-care equipment. “Our new DuraFiber Lid is is the strongest and toughest non-traffic-rated lid we’ve ever tested,” says Eric Ball, Orenco’s VP of Product Development.
The DuraFiber Lid is made of resin-infused fiberglass for extreme durability and breaking strengths in excess of 20,000 pounds. You’ll find it fits most ribbed PVC and HDPE riser pipe and weighs only 11 pounds.
The DuraFiber lid’s flat-style flange allows for flush-to-grade installation. Additional installation benefits include a cored centering ring — providing an easily aligned, snug fit — and a urethane gasket to help ensure a watertight seal.
Available in 24-inch and 30-inch diameters, DuraFiber Lids have a non-skid surface with customizable center insert — ideal for your company logo — along with a molded-in “Caution” statement. In addition to the standard green or brown, you can also offer customers three landscape patterns — grass, river rock, and bark — which blend into their surroundings.
For improved safety, the lids are secured with four 5/16" stainless steel flathead screws, and the appropriate hex key is included for your convenience.

Installations Made Easy with New Cast-in Tank Adapter
Orenco's new cast-in tank adapter, the PRTA24-2, is the most advanced design available for cast-in riser tank adapters. The advanced design makes the PRTA24-2 easy to work with, from the tank farm to the installation site.
Tank manufacturers who've used the PRTA24-2 are amazed at the time it saves them. Installing the PRTA24-2 correctly is simple and quick. The wide outer flange tells you the PRTA24-2 is set to the right depth every time. And the inner flange locks the PRTA24-2 in place for a strong, watertight connection.
The PRTA24-2 is popular with installers, too. You only need to place one bead of adhesive in the PRTA24-2's adapter channel to get a watertight fit between the adapter and a 24-inch access riser. And you don't need additional adhesive joints. No need to create “the perfect” adhesive fillet on the inside of the riser.
To see how simple it is to install a PRTA24-2, watch our PRTA24-2 installation video on YouTube. Or you can download our written instructions.
Riser Safety Grates Can Help Save Lives
Orenco's non-corroding polypropylene riser safety grates rest on the ledge at the bottom of an access riser to help prevent people or tools from falling into a tank. They are sized to fit Ultra-Rib™, Perma-Loc™, Kor-Flo™, and equivalent risers.
Grates help protect curious children and careless adults from falling into a riser if the lid is broken or left unfastened. They're also helpful to service providers, who can rest filters or other components on the grate inside the riser and hose them off.
Orenco's riser safety grates are easy to install and remove and fit most brands of ribbed PVC profile pipe. They can also be installed in the bottom of a valve box to prevent soil buildup. Grates to fit 12-, 18-, 21-, 24-, and 30-in. risers are available.
Properly installed, the Riser Safety Grate rests on the tank flange. (Cutaway riser and cutaway grate shown for display purposes.)
Orenco strongly recommends that tanks be equipped with riser safety grates to help prevent accidental tank entry.
AdvanTex AX-RT: Performs Like AdvanTex, Installs Like a Tank
Orenco's AdvanTex AX-RT Treatment System is a completely pre-packaged "plug & play" AX20 system that installs as easily as a septic tank. The AX-RT combines the recirc, treatment, and discharge modules of a standard AX20 system into a single, shallowly buried unit.
Where to Use the AX-RT
- Sites where an old system has failed but the existing septic tank is still usable
- Small sites and those requiring shallow excavations
The AX-RT can replace a failing system in a fraction of the space. And, if the existing tank is re-useable, at a fraction of the cost. Same treatment performance as an AX20 system.

Biotube® EasyPak™: A Complete, Ready-to-Install Pump Package in a Box
Orenco's new Biotube EasyPak™is the first pump package designed specifically for use in pump tanks. No more "pump on a block." No more parts and pieces. Everything you need, in a single box, ready-to-install, ready to drop into a pump tank. EasyPak allows faster installations, fewer installation errors, and fewer call-backs.
A Better Product at a Comparable Cost
A drainfield is worth thousands of dollars and may, in fact, be irreplaceable. EasyPak protects it with three built-in Biotube® filter cartridges that prevent solids from clogging the drainfield or other downstream components. EasyPak also includes a long-lasting, high-performing 4" turbine pump. All EasyPak turbine pumps include a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship from the date of manufacture. Try to get a warranty like that for a "pump on a block"! Yet EasyPak provides all these benefits at a price that's comparable to the pieces and parts of a low-head "pump on a block."
Standard Packages and Ordering Codes
Demand-dose and timed-dose packages are available. Note that all EasyPak vaults are a low-profile design — just 15” high — which allows pumping to nearly the bottom of the tank, an industry-first for filtering pump vaults.
EasyPak Design Aid
Our EasyPak Design Aid CD-ROM, including a brand new EasyPak Select™ software program, helps designers select the correct system for the application. This new EasyPak Select software program calculates the correct pump flow rate and total dynamic head for the system.
