Drain Fields in Lakeland – When you think about your septic system and keeping it running properly, you probably think first about the septic tank and about how often is should be pumped and cleaned. However, what you may not realize is that drain fields need just as much attention to keep your system running efficiently.
There are a few things to consider regarding the health of drain fields. One important thing to remember is not to park or drive vehicles over drain fields, as that can seriously damage the drain field. Another important thing to do is use only bacteria-friendly and environmentally safe household cleaners and personal cleaning products. If you kill off the beneficial bacteria in your septic system, it cannot function properly. If you use harsh chemicals, they can easily end up in the soil around your home and even in your water supply if you have well water. Excess water is also not good for drain fields. This water can come from the property if your rain gutters are not installed or operating correctly. It can also come from within the house from leaks or just using too much water at one time. It is best to spread out water usage.
