Custom Septic, Inc., offers a variety of necessary services for homeowners in Dayton, MN with a septic system, including drain field inspection. The drain field of your septic system is an essential component in your septic system’s proper operation. We recommend regularly scheduled drain field inspections to prevent the need for an expensive drain field repair or replacement.
If you have lived in your home for a while and have not had your septic system inspected, you may begin to notice some issues with your drain field. Here are a few signs to look for:
● The grass over your drain field is a richer green color and/or grows fast than other areas of your lawn.
● You smell the unmistakable odor of sewage in your yard.
● Areas of your yard are moist or wet, and you know that it is not due to recent rain or snow events.
● You discover standing water in the laterals.
● Your plumbing backs up in your house or drains slower than usual.
Drain Field Inspector in Dayton, MN
Over time, it is common for conditions to move in the direction of a drain field problem or, if left unattended, drain field failure. Custom Septic Inc.’s inspection process can prevent major problems. Our inspection process will identify existing problems and potential problems with your drain field. During the course of its repeated use, your septic system and your drain field, will accumulate substances like soil, soap, grease, and solid waste material, all of which can contribute to the clogging of your drain field. These substances prevent the normal flow of water and can completely clog your drain field. When the clog becomes significant enough, the drain field water back-flows into the soil on top of the drain field. In most cases, the soil on top of your drain field doubles as the homeowner’s yard.
