Your drain field is a critical part of your septic system. Here, wastewater from your tank is treated and eventually absorbed into the ground. Just like any other component of your septic system, your drain field can clog and eventually fail.
Why Do Drain Fields Clog?
When your septic tank processes liquids, it is supposed to capture solid waste, like grease, debris, soap scum, and cooking oils. However, some of these substances can get into your drain field and build up over time. As a result, your drain field may have a difficult time processing new wastewater that makes its way into it, causing the need for drain field repair.
