What is a Drain Field and How Does it Work?

If you are new to the world of septic systems, you may have heard the term “drain field,” but might not be so sure on what exactly it is.  If this sounds like you, you are in luck. Today our team of septic system experts are talking all things drain field; check out the article below for a brief overview of what a drain field is and how a drain field works.

A drain field simply refers to the area of land where the filtered liquid from your septic system is pipped to, dispersed, and can be used to fertilize the land.  A drain filed most commonly will include soil, aggregate, and perforated pipes.  To ensure your drain field is working properly, experts recommend not using too much water in your home and to be aware when there is too much water on the group from rain and other elements.  This can cause flooding.  Be sure to have your septic system and drain field inspected at a minimum of once per year.
