One essential component of a septic system’s optimal operation is the health of its drain field.
Many homeowners with septic systems do not know what a drain field is, or the function it serves. Also known as leach drains and leach fields, drain fields are waste-water disposal facilities that serve as filtration systems. They remove contaminants from the water material produced in the septic tank by a process known as anaerobic digestion.
Repairing Your Septic System Drain field
The drain field is usually composed of a series of trenches that contain porous materials, such as gravel, and perforated pipes. These materials are covered with a layer of soil, which creates a barrier that stops surface run-off from infiltrating the waste water that enters the trenches. The first, and most obvious sign that your drain field has begun to fail is the familiar but unwelcome smell of sewage around your yard. Other signs may include the discovery of greener grass over the drain field, the result of an abundance of natural fertilizing agents in that area. You may also discover moist areas in your yard. Inside your house, signs may include sinks and tubs that are slow to drain, or which back up.
If you discover any of the signs indicating a potential issue with your drain field, it is important that you have the issue addressed as soon as possible. Custom Septic, Inc., employs well-trained professionals who know how to identify the points of origin for drain field failure and they have the expertise to perform the repairs. Some of the more common causes of drain field failure include clogs, trees whose roots grow into and impede drain field pipes, and drain fields that are frequently driven over by cars and trucks.
