Question Septic Field Pit

We have had problems with our septic system recently and have been told that we are able to dig a "pit" 10 feet from our septic system for the grey water to drain into. How deep should this pit be? How to we calculate the dimensions? Also how much gravel should be used for this pit?

Thank you

This may not be allowed in all locations.

You would do well to ask your plumbing inspector if this is allowed and how he would like to see it done.
