The drain field is just one part of your septic system. Any part of your septic system, including your drain field, can have problems at any time. To help you be able to identify an issue with your drain field, we have included some common signs of needing a drain field repair below.
- Standing water – If it has not recently rained and you still have standing pools of water in your yard or around where your septic take is located, then you likely need a drain field repair. If you have standing water in your yard, it is time to act now and call a professional to repair your drain field.
- Patches in grass – Grass shouldn’t have spots or patches of ultra-lush grass. This can definitely be a sign of needing a drain field repair if the lush patches of grass are over or around your drain field.
- Sewage is backed up – One sign that no home owner every wants to experience is backed-up sewage in their drains.
