A malfunctioning septic drain field can quickly disrupt daily life, causing inconvenience and potential health hazards. When faced with drain field issues, homeowners often seek solutions to restore proper functioning. While some companies may suggest a complete drain field replacement, Septic Service Pro advocates for drain field repair, emphasizing a high success rate in rejuvenating existing systems.
Understanding Drain Field Issues
Septic drain fields can encounter problems due to various factors, with one common issue being the build-up of biomat. Biomat is a slimy layer produced by anaerobic bacteria, thriving in an oxygen-depleted environment within the drain field. Over time, this biomat can clog the drain field, impeding the absorption of liquid into the soil and leading to foul septic odors.
Septic Service Pro’s Approach
Septic Service Pro recognizes the urgency and disruption caused by drain field problems. The company emphasizes a repair-focused approach, especially for homes built after 1980. Contrary to companies proposing drain field replacements, Septic Service Pro prioritizes repairing existing fields with a proven track record of success.
For drain fields containing plastic pipe and gravel, Septic Service Pro employs a comprehensive repair method involving hydrojetting and vacuum extraction. Hydrojetting is used to dislodge built-up material within the drain field pipes. The process involves high-pressure water that effectively clears blockages. Subsequently, a pumper truck with vacuum capabilities is employed to suction out the dislodged material, ensuring a thorough cleansing of the drain field.
To regenerate the drain field operation, our technicians introduce new aerobic bacteria along with a slow-release oxygen powder. This strategic approach aims to counter the anaerobic bacteria responsible for biomat formation. The introduction of aerobic bacteria with oxygen powder helps create a healthier environment within the drain field, enhancing its ability to absorb liquid efficiently.
Effectiveness of Drain Field Repair
Research conducted by biological companies and Septic Service Pro’s extensive experience demonstrates the effectiveness of their drain field repair method. With a remarkable 99% success rate on systems installed after 1980, the repair process has proven to be highly efficient in rejuvenating drain fields and restoring their optimal functionality.
Why Repair Instead of Replace
Septic Service Pro strongly advises against hastily opting for a drain field replacement, especially if your home was constructed after 1980. The repair-focused approach not only saves homeowners from the significant costs associated with replacement but also offers a sustainable solution that preserves the existing infrastructure. By addressing the root cause of drain field issues, the repair method ensures a more environmentally friendly and budget-conscious approach.
