Drainfield ServicesYour drainfield is an extremely important component of your septic system, and maintaining it is critical for the sake of helping wastewater flow freely to the right places for treatment. Just as your septic tank and plumbing lines need good care and maintenance, you need good drainfield services as well.

At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., our drainfield services are what set us apart. We have been maintaining and providing drainfield services since 1958. Our trained, professional staff will assist you in ensuring that your drainfield is working like it should be and help you out if repair work needs to be performed.

We recommend a few preventative measures to keep your drain field in good working condition:

  1. One main preventative measure to take is to maintain bacteria and septic enzymes in your system. When harsh household cleaners are used and chemicals are flushed through your system, they kill the bacteria and enzymes that break down the solids in your septic system.
  2. It is important to keep trees and shrubs away from your drainfield lines. This is because plant roots can easily grow into your lines and cause severe damage. It is best to plant grass above your septic system and drainfield because grass roots help to remove excess moisture from the soil without interfering with any plumbing lines.
  3. Do not install asphalt or concrete features on top of your drain field.
  4. Avoid driving over the top of your drain field.
