A septic drain field can also be referred to as a leach field or a leach drain. It is one of the most important components of any septic system. Maintaining your drainfield system in Valdosta is crucially important.
A drainfield is the subsurface component that distributes, eliminates, and manages the sewage waste (effluent) from water that accumulates in your septic tank. buried underground, the drain field has parallel perforated pipes which acts as a distribution system to remove contaminants and material from the wastewater and safely deposit them in the soil. the process of percolation within the soil eliminates harmful microorganisms from the wastewater, therefore leaving relatively clean water in the ground.
Drainfields are a well planned system, when installed properly and maintained regularly, there’s no need to be worried about wastewater in the soil on your property.
There are many reasons for a septic system failure, but in most common would be a failing or faulty drainfield, hence the reason we highly suggest maintenance for your drainfield.
Prevention is the key to a well maintained drainfield. One of the best suggestions is not to flush solids down your toilet or pour them in the sink. Solid pieces of material can become lodged and cause a system to back up.
Many people think it is okay to pour grease and oils down the kitchen sink. This also is a no no. They can damage pipes and cause a buildup of a crust on the top layer of your septic tank, which can cause even more problems, like a clog in the drainfield pipe.
