Yes, I have had experiance with them. In fact I built a home back in 1989 that had to have one. It was my own residence.
I don’t know if they have changed much and I am not sure if the specs are the same in all states. But the one I had to put in was a Joke. Funny thing is, the county told us that this is what we would have to put in by their codes in order to have septic system. But the catch was they wouldn’t Garuantee the system to work. Well quess what? It didn’t!
If it’s anything like the one I had, it takes a lot of room to put one in. It went to the septic tank then a specially designed pit with gravel and layers of pipe that leached into a holding tank with a clorine tablet that was supposed to clean the water Then from there it went to a leach area where the drain pipes were laid on undisturbed soil then coverd with a mound of dirt that theoreticly, the water was supposed to evaporate from that mound. Well mine never evaporated it was allways a big wet hump in the yard. I was really proud of it the grass was allways green.
I am sure other people have had better experiances but that was mine.
