Licensed Drain Field Service in Lakeland, Florida
The failure of a septic system’s drain field can lead to all sorts of problems, not only with the septic system but also with your property. Fortunately, Lakeland Septic Company is ready to quickly address whatever is happening with your drain field and resolve the problems.
Here’s how we can help you when your drain field is acting up.
What Is a Drain Field?
A drain field is the part of a residential or commercial septic system that processes liquid waste that’s sent from the septic tank. The drain field is responsible for filtering the liquid and then sending it into the soil surrounding the field.
Drain Field Repair
You may have heard stories about some septic service companies that have coerced their customers into paying for an expensive drain field replacement when the drain field needs repair work. This will not happen with Lakeland Septic.
Across 15 years in the Lakeland, Florida, region, we’ve built a reputation for honesty and clear communication with our customers. We never recommend work that isn’t needed, and we never start any work without you knowing exactly why it’s needed, what will be done and how much it will cost.
How Can a Drain Field Become Damaged?
Common causes of drain field damage include:
- Crushing it by driving heavy vehicles or machinery on it
- Invasion by aggressive tree roots
- Infiltration by fats, oils and grease that have somehow escaped the septic tank
- Excess water entering it, either from the home or torrential rains
Signs of Drain Field Damage
Watch for these common signs of drain field trouble:
- Soggy grass or land above or near the drain field
- Extra-lush grass growing over the field but nowhere else
- Strong sewage odors in the air around the drain field
Note that odors as well as wet ground and lush grass around the septic system could also point to problems with the septic tank or other parts of the system.
