Keeping Your Septic System Running Smoothly

Drain Field Repair

If you’ve been noticing strong sewage odors or areas of soggy and lush grass on your property, your drain field may be experiencing issues. With over 15 years of experience in drain field repair, Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. is well-equipped to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of your drain field.

Understanding Drain Field Damage

One common cause of drain field damage is external pressure from above-ground sources, such as heavy vehicles or equipment. Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. always advises customers to avoid driving over or parking heavy objects on the drain field to prevent potential pipe crushing and leaks.

Invasive roots from nearby trees and foliage can also damage drain field pipes. Additionally, clogs may occur if solid waste or grease escapes the septic tank and infiltrates the drain field.

Recognizing Signs of Drain Field Problems:

Pay attention to these indicators of drain field issues:

  • Strong sewage odors in the drain field area (sewage odors indoors may signal a septic tank issue).
  • Soggy patches of grass or soil near the drain field.

Abnormally lush greenery above or around the drain field.

If any of these signs are present, schedule a comprehensive septic system inspection and arrange for necessary drain field repair – we can take care of both tasks for you.

Who Should Handle Drain Field Repairs?

Drain field repairs should only be entrusted to licensed septic service professionals who possess expertise not only in drain field components but also in the entire septic system, including the septic tank, drainage pipes, filters, baffles, and possibly a lift station pump.

At Anytime Septic Solutions Inc., our team is fully trained to perform drain field repairs, regardless of whether we installed the system originally.

The Purpose of a Drain Field

The drain field is a crucial part of residential or commercial septic systems. Comprising long, perforated pipes placed near the septic tank and close to the ground’s surface, it receives liquid waste from the connected septic tank. The liquid is then gradually and safely released into the surrounding soil.

If your drain field isn’t functioning as intended, timely drain field repair and inspection are essential. Trust Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. to address any drain field issues and restore the proper functioning of your septic system.
