Avoid costly repairs, backups, and premature failure with regular drain field maintenance.
For a homeowner or business owner to best care for their septic system, it is important to have a good understanding of how it works and what it needs to perform. Here at William Dustin Septic, we believe an informed customer is our best customer. That is why we gladly provide education about such matters as drain field maintenance and why it is important.
Think of your septic system’s drain field as you would a filter in a water softener, swimming pool, or one of those pitchers for creating tasty drinking water. You know you can be confident that the water quality is maintained as long as the filter does not become clogged and can no longer filter out impurities and contaminants. While you certainly do not drink the water that filters out from your drain field – not directly anyhow – it is no less important that the filtering process be completed effectively. Drain field maintenance is the way to determine whether your drain field is being overwhelmed by waste matter and contaminating the soil and ground water.
Another important reason for regular drain field maintenance is to avoid costly repairs. We can catch a problem early and resolve it before that happens. When a serious problem develops, you can end up with a backup of black water inside your home or business, not to mention potentially needing to replace your drain field that should have lasted for many more years.
