Septic system drain fields are vulnerable to damage, which can cause malfunction and major headaches for the property owner. Throughout Haines City, FL, Lakeland Septic has provided expert drain field repair and drain field replacements for more than 15 years.
Here are some things you’ll want to know about your Haines City drain field.
Drain Field Overview
Your septic tank receives waste from your home. Inside the tank, liquids and solids are separated. The solids are pumped out by your septic company. The liquids move on to the adjacent drain field, which is a series of perforated pipes, where they are processed and sent into area soil.
It’s a great system for our Haines City customers – until problems arise. When this happens, the Lakeland Septic team is standing by to help.
Drain Field Trouble in Haines City
Drain fields can be damaged in several ways, causing liquid sewage to leak up into the ground surface and backups to occur within the septic system.
Here are some common ways a field can be damaged and signal a need for drain field replacement or drain field repair:
- Heavy vehicles and machinery crushing parts of the field – this is often a reason why drain field replacement is required
- Large, heavy objects placed or built on top of the drain field
- Roots from area trees and shrubbery moving into the field and damaging it
- Grease escaping the septic tank and causing obstructions in the drain field
What to Watch for with Your Haines City Drain Field
Watch for these clues that may signal the need for drain field repair or drain field replacement:
- Wet patches of grass above or near the drain field
- Lush green grass or other growth in the area of the drain field or septic tank
- Foul odors in the air around the drain field
- Overflowing sinks and toilets in the home
- Slow drains throughout the house
Note that these clues may also point to trouble in other parts of your septic system. Only a licensed septic inspection can tell you exactly what’s going on.
