We have decades of experience with drain fields to be able to advise you on keeping yours in top condition.
When most people think about the septic system of their Dundee, Florida home or business, they usually only consider the health of the septic tank and whether it is time to be pumped out. While attention to septic tanks is critical for the overall health and reliability of the septic system, attention to drain fields is also important. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we are experienced with all facets of septic systems, including drain fields, and can be a valuable resource for keeping your system functioning as it should.
Many of the tips that are given about proper operation of a septic system are actually to prevent problems with drain fields. For example, not putting FOGs (fats, oils, and grease) down the drain is critical because it floats on the top above the access pipe to the drain field. If this layer gets too thick before pumping can be completed, it enters into the drain field where it causes clogs and potentially failure and contamination of the soil and groundwater. Another tip is to space out water usage. Septic tanks and drain fields can be overwhelmed if you push too much water at one time into them.

Other tips are relative specifically to drain fields, such as not driving over or parking on your drain field to avoid crushing the pipes and not planting trees or shrubs over the drain field. We are more than happy to advise you on other practices that you should and should not do if you want to get the longest life from your drain field. Call today to learn more or to schedule service.
