If your property has a septic system, it likely contains a drain field. When the liquid and waste move through the pipes, these materials move into the septic tank. This concrete box sits beneath the ground on your property and stores solid waste until it is pumped out. The liquid waste moves to the top of the tank and out through the pipes connecting to the other side, where it can move into the drain field. A drain field includes a set of perforated pipes buried within gravel that serves as an additional filter. After receiving additional treatment to eliminate bacteria, the clear, or effluent, liquid waste goes out through the drain field and back into the soil.
The drain field is a critical part of the septic system that can cause serious environmental damage if functioning improperly. A small leak or other type of damage to any part of the drain field could result in contaminated liquid moving into the soil. It’s not easy to know if something is wrong and will require drain field repair, but regular septic system maintenance is the best way to keep tabs on this critical component. You might notice a few telltale signs, such as puddles in the yard, unpleasant odors, or septic backups. Any of these signs warrants an immediate call to a septic expert.
