The key factor with drain fields is making sure they are working properly and not contaminating the surrounding soil or groundwater.
The traditional waste treatment system for properties in the Haines City, Florida area that are beyond the municipal sewer lines involves installing a septic tank and drain field. It is critical that these be installed properly and be regularly maintained to avoid groundwater and soil contamination. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we are a full-service septic system contractor serving both residential and commercial properties. We understand the concern involved with proper care of drain fields and offer a variety of services to give you peace of mind and resolve any problem that might arise.
It is best not to wait until you have a symptom, such as backups, slow drains, wet or lush areas around the drain field, or other signs of a problem. Once you see these, there is a good chance that contamination has already begun. We recommend having drain fields inspected regularly – at least twice as often as your septic tank is pumped and cleaned. This schedule will permit us to catch problems early before contamination has occurred and also reduce the repair costs involved. If you wait too long, we may not even be able to repair your drain field, and you’ll then have the burden of replacement to contend with.
We are also a valuable resource for information on how to preserve drain fields. For example, we advise you to never drive a vehicle or any heavy machinery over your drain field and that you keep all landscaping as far from it as possible to avoid damage from trees and shrubs that naturally send their roots out looking for nutrients and moisture, which are abundant in drain fields.
If you have any questions about drain fields, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are happy to perform an inspection and let you know if there are any problems or steps you could be taking to extend the life of your septic system.
