We’ve tackled problems with drain fields in the Mulberry area for nearly 60 years!
Unlike the septic tank itself, drain fields can be put into danger in a number of ways, which can result in repairs or even replacement. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we have been helping families in the Mulberry, Florida area dating back to 1958, so we know a thing or two about drain fields and how to keep them healthy. We are confident we can tackle whatever is going on with your septic system.
There are two main enemies of drain fields – grease and being damaged by weight or roots. When you put grease down the drain, it doesn’t rest inside the septic tank. Grease rises to the top, which means it flows into the drain field along with the other liquids. Drain fields are not equipped to filter out the grease, so it inevitably causes clogs.
Intrusion by roots or being crushed by vehicles is the second most common reason for the failure of drain fields. You should plan your landscaping carefully to keep anything, particularly trees, away from your septic system. Leave this as a grassy area if possible, or at least stick with plants with shallow roots. Your septic system has a lot of water going through it, and roots will strive to reach it, which makes for lush growing, but not what you want for your system.
Call on us to inspect, repair, replace or install drain fields for new construction. As a two-generation company, we have the dedication and experience you need to keep your system operating properly. Drain fields that are not doing their job are not good for the environment and will likely lead to costly repairs. Let us inspect your system regularly to make sure it is operating efficiently.
