Drain Fields in Auburndale – Most people who have septic systems know about where the septic tank is and probably have a schedule in mind for pumping it out. However, some do not have the same knowledge about maintenance and the preservation of drain fields. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we believe an educated homeowner is our best customer. Although we are capable of resolving problems with drain fields and the other components of your septic system, we would much rather help you prevent them through regular service.

We always put client education first because we want you to understand what is needed and why you need it. It is not a difficult endeavor to protect drain fields. The two most important aspects are not putting too much weight on top of them and not putting the wrong things down the drains in your home that can damage drain fields.

One of the most common ways in which drain fields become damaged is collapsing from having someone drive over them or park on them. Even if the initial weight doesn’t collapse the drain fields, it can compact the area, so it cannot drain properly. This type of damage can be difficult, if not impossible, to repair, often requiring replacement instead.

There are a number of things that you should not put down the drain because doing so is harmful to drain fields. Oddly enough, one of those things is water. No, that doesn’t mean you can’t flush or run water in the sinks. Drain fields can handle a decent amount of water, but to keep them operating properly, it is best not to overdo it. We suggest spacing out water usage, including showers and laundry, to give your system time to handle it.
