Drain Field RepairThe effectiveness of your home’s drain field might be hindered by a variety of factors. Whatever the cause of the damage or inability to function properly, there is always the hope that drain field repair is an option, versus a complete drain field replacement. If you find yourself in a position needing a technician to come out and look at your drain field, be on guard for companies only looking to replace your system without offering repair remedies. While it’s true that after wear and time, some drain fields may need to be replaced. It’s true that some septic services companies can scam you into buying a whole new system when it’s not necessary.

Preventative maintenance is also paramount in preserving your drain field. This includes being diligent daily about what you flush down your toilet or drop down your drains.

In addition, your system should be checked by a professional every 1-3 years. Thorough inspections can often help detect any issues with your drain field before they become too damaged.
