Why is Drain Field Maintenance Important to Septic Health?

When you have a septic system, it is vital that you take care of every part of your septic system. While most people tend to focus on the septic tank, the drain field requires equal care and maintenance to ensure that your septic system works properly. Here at William Dustin Septic, we want to make help you with all of your drain field needs to ensure proper septic health, including drain field maintenance.

The drain field is the last part of your septic system, and should be treated with care. A series of perforated pipes buried at relatively shallow depths is what every drain field consists of, and taking care of these pipes is critical. Because the drain field allows effluent water to return to the soil and percolate through until it rejoins the groundwater, having a clogged, broken or problematic drain field can lead to backflow or even groundwater pollution. Drain field maintenance helps to prevent problems like these.
