Fix a Failing or Non Compliant Drainfield
An often misunderstood and overlooked part of the septic system is the Drain Field. It is an integral part of many Corcoran MN On-site Sewer Systems. If a drainfield becomes clogged with solids or tree roots, they may have to be routed out. The formation of a slimy bacterial mat or Biomat, along the trench walls can also mean big trouble. A Licensed Septic Contractor like CSI Custom Septic, Inc. should be called in if you notice signs of a Failing Drainfield such as ponding water, gurgling drains or smelly pipes. Failing a Septic Compliance Inspection is another reason that your soil drainage field needs to be fixed.
Responsible Septic System Ownership
When you buy a home In Corcoran MN with an Onsite Septic System you are responsible for making sure that it works properly without contaminating local dwellings, waterways and properties. No home comes with an owner’s manual that covers every aspect of home ownership. Luckily, there are MPCA Licensed Septic Contractors who can take care of things like Septic System Repairs. The property owner can handle most ongoing maintenance procedures by themselves but Drain Field Repairs are much more complex and difficult to fix.
Signs of Overloaded or Malfunctioning Drainfield
If a septic system is designed properly it should be able to handle the amount of wastewater that your household typically produces. Many people don’t realize that every bit of water that goes down the drain will end up inside of the septic tank and eventually end up in the drainfield. Overloading the septic system by running back-to-back loads of laundry, neglecting maintenance or leaky plumbing fixtures can lead to a drain field malfunction.
- Gurgling Drains
- Ponding Water
- Slow Moving Drains
- Smelly Sewer Pipes
- Excessive Green Algae Growth
- Waste Water Backing Up Into Home
How Can My Septic Drain Field Fail?
Since only about half of the solid materials in the septic tank are broken down by bacteria, large amounts settle to the bottom of the tank before being pumped out. When too much liquid flow into the tank, solids can be pushed out into the drain field. Pipes can become clogged up and water cannot filter through to the soil drainage area. Water sitting inside of the drain lines for too long can cause a Biomat to form. This slimy build up of bacteria does not allow the water to seep through. This is how too many Drainfields Fail.
