Drain Field Basics
A drain field is the part of the septic system that receives liquid waste from the septic tank. The liquid is processed in the drain field and sent into adjacent soil.
Drain fields can become damaged if heavy vehicles are driven over them or if heavy items are stored or built on top of them. If solids from the septic tank enter the drain field, it can become damaged. Old age also plays a part in the health of your drain field.

Does Your Existing Drain Field Need to Be Replaced?
Severely damaged and very old drain fields often need to be replaced. Your septic system cannot run safely and efficiently without one. We provide fast service for emergency drain field repair and installation.
Many factors should be considered in deciding if it’s time to replace your drain field, which has an average life of 20 to 30 years.
How the field has been maintained over the years plays a major role in determining whether or not a new drain field installation is required. One of the biggest factors is how frequently or infrequently the septic tank has been pumped out. The tank should be pumped every three to five years to keep buildup from making its way into the drain lines.
