At Quality Septic Inc. of Plant City, FL, we understand that you care about your home, and we believe you deserve to enjoy all the comfort your home can provide. In our experience, few things can ruin that comfort like a septic problem, particularly one involving the drain field.

While our technicians have the right experience to help you with any drain field emergency, there will be some cases in which the best solution is an all-new drain field installation.
If you find yourself in this position, read on to learn more about three of the key factors that affect the drain field installation process.

One of the most important tasks in a drain field installation and design is making sure the field is the right size. A drain field that’s too small won’t be able to handle all the sewage it receives every day.

Our team at Quality Septic brings the years of hands-on experience that’s necessary to calculate the ideal size for your new drain field so that you never have to worry about overloading a field that’s too small.

2. Your property’s terrain

Another factor that impacts drain field installation is the terrain of your property. Specifically, a drain field should never be installed in an area with a steep slope, because sloped areas are likely to experience rain runoff that can lead to flooding, which in turn will damage your whole system.

Fortunately, our team knows how to avoid this problem – and we do it regularly with the many drain fields we install for our customers throughout the Plant City region in Florida. We’ll install your new drain field in the optimal location.

3. Access to the drain field

The third consideration in drain field installation is ease of access. Your drain field, like the rest of your septic system, will require regular upkeep, so it’s important that maintenance professionals can easily access it when necessary.

The Quality Septic crew will make sure to install your new drain field with discreet yet convenient access points to make future maintenance a breeze.

In cases where there’s severe damage and malfunction within a drain field, we have the skills and experience to install a brand new drain field. However, not all drain field issues point to the need for a brand new field.

Many problems a drain field might experience can be repaired, leaving the field as good as new and able to keep serving you well. If you suspect your drain field is failing, the first step is to schedule an inspection.

Important note: Never let a septic provider tell you that you need a whole new drain field without making sure you understand exactly what’s wrong and why it can’t be repaired!
