Repairing a Drain Field Before It’s Too Late
It is important to repair a drain field that is backed up into your drain lines. Your drain could be problematic due to a build-up of biomat, a gooey substance caused by anaerobic bacteria from human waste. Biomat in the soil and around the leech lines in the drain field can prevent liquid from being absorbed into the soil. When this happens, wastewater from your septic system can seep to the surface of the drain field or back up into your drain lines. This can lead to complete septic system failure and health hazards to your family due to contamination.
