  • Your Grass is Unhealthy – If your grass and landscaping begin to look unhealthy, your drain field may need repair. Unhealthy grass can be due to sewage leaking into your yard. When a drain field is overworked, the field can become clogged and unsightly.
  • Sewage Backup – If you begin to experience sewage backing up in your home, call a drain field repair specialist immediately. This typically means that your drain field isn’t doing its job and is finding other places, such as your home, to unload.
  • Pooling Water – Pooling water could indicate several things, such as a septic tank that needs to be pumped, a broken pipe, or clogging. Regardless, if the issues are not addressed it can cause further damage. In these circumstances, drain field repair is likely necessary.
