There are a few things that can damage your Bloomingdale home’s drain field. Count on us to repair it if possible or replace it if necessary.
Your septic system’s drain field is a vital component that filters the non-solids that come from the septic tank before they enter the soil and groundwater of your Bloomingdale, Florida property. The septic tank holds the solids until they are pumped out. They settle to the bottom, so the water is at the top. The water then flows to the drain field. It is an amazing system when you think about it and often operates with no problems for decades. However, there are things that can cause problems, and when that happens, you should call us at Brandon Septic.
A common cause of drain field issues is when too much oil and grease have been introduced to the septic system. These do not sink like solids do. They float on the top and end up in the drain field. The drain field cannot handle this and becomes clogged. The result is a combination issue involving contamination to the soil and groundwater and potentially a backup into your home or bubbling up in your yard.
In some cases, this type of damage to your home’s drain field can be repaired. Other times the damage is too extensive and you’ll need a new drain field installed. We have more than 30 years of experience, so you can be assured that if there is any potential for salvaging the drain field, we’re the ones who can do it.
Another thing that can cause a drain field to be in trouble is when it has collapsed because of soil issues or because someone has driven over the drain field and crushed it. Again, sometimes this can be repaired, but that is not always the case. If you are experiencing a problem with your septic system and suspect there is an issue with the drain field, give us a call. We will assess the situation and provide you with the best action plan for your situation.
