Drain Fields, Winter Haven, FL

Drain fields in Winter Haven, FL must be in good working condition to prevent environmental contamination.


Drain Fields in Winter Haven – Even those who have septic systems on their properties don’t always understand each step of how they work. A concrete septic tank sits beneath ground and connects to the plumbing that leads from the home or office. Waste and liquid enter the septic tank and receive treatment from bacteria that allow the water to move through the tank, while solid waste stays behind. After the liquid goes out of the tank, it travels into the drain field. Drain fields contain a series of perforated pipes surrounded by gravel. Liquid receives an additional treatment, and then exits the pipes through the perforations. The gravel serves as an additional filter before the liquid reenters the ground water.

Drain fields must be in good working condition to prevent environmental contamination, so one of the best ways to keep the system running properly is to schedule routine maintenance. Clogged drain fields can happen if something large gets flushed and goes through the pipes.

You can also keep an eye out for potential problems with the drain field in your septic system by watching for wet spots on the ground or gurgling sounds near the pipes.
