Commercial Drain Fields

Septic system problems at commercial facilities are often blamed on issues with the septic tank when the actual trouble lies with the drain field connected to the tank. Lakeland Septic Company provides complete commercial drain field service along with inspections and repairs for all other parts of your septic system.

Commercial Drain Fields 101

The drain field receives liquids from the septic tank. Within the field are long, perforated pipes that release treated liquids into the nearby soil. Built fairly close to the surface of the ground, drain fields are among the more vulnerable parts of a modern septic system.

How Drain Fields Get Damaged

Because of their closeness to the ground surface, drain fields can easily be damaged if vehicles or heavy machinery run over them or are parked on top of them.

Invading tree and shrubbery roots can also lead to drain field damage, as can grease and solids that escape the septic tank.

Warning Signs of Commercial Drain Field Damage

Broken drain field pipes and clogs anywhere in the system will lead to problems that give warning signs, including:

  • The odor of sewage inside your facility or outside near the drain field
  • Wet spots on the ground or sunken ground above the drain field
  • Extra-lush grass and foliage growing only in the area of the drain field
  • Multiple sinks running slowly or backing up with sewage
  • Toilets that don’t flush efficiently

It’s important to note that these signs can also be caused by a septic tank that’s too full and starting to back up. In addition, trouble in other parts of your commercial septic system can lead to these signs. Only an inspection can pinpoint the specific cause of the problem.
