Gainesville GA Drain Field Repairs
The experts at Gainesville Sewer-Septic can help with your new septic system and drain field installation, and perform any Gainesville GA drain field repairs needed to your existing drain field. Your septic system uses a drain field to remove the wastewater after purification. This drain field should be properly sized and placed during the drain field installation to provide years of trouble free use. If you are installing a new septic system, don’t forget about the drain field. Use a provider that is expert in drain field installations. Gainesville Sewer-Septic has a reputation as being an excellent installer of complete septic system services, including the drain field.
The drain field from the septic system is made from long, perforated pipes that allow treated wastewater to leech into the area, after the solids have settled to the bottom. Drain fields, if installed correctly, are generally problem free. For a reliable drain field installation, contact Gainesville Sewer-Septic for a free estimate and guaranteed service.
Drain Field Installation Oakwood Georgia
You can depend on Gainesville Sewer-Septic for drain field repairs and drain field installation in Oakwood Georgia and the Gainesville area. Problems do occur with the drain field, requiring repairs. Planting shrubbery or trees in the absorption area can cause the drain pipes to become clogged and they will not drain correctly. Driving cars, trucks or other heavy equipment (a home lawn mower or tractor is generally fine) over the drain field can also damage the drain pipes. Another potential cause of drain field problems is covering of the drain field with concrete or another ‘hard’ surface. The best surface for your drain field is a grass covering. Never dispose of paints or chemicals down your drains, as this can also damage your drains and drain field. To maintain your drain field, have your septic tank pumped on a regular basis to help eliminate ‘back up’ from occurring.
Your septic tank and drain field need to be properly sized and installed to function correctly. If the septic tank or drain field is too small to handle the amount of wastewater from your home or installed incorrectly, the wastewater will not leech into the soil fast enough. When septic systems are too small, too much solid material flows into the drain field causing more problems. The solid material collects in the soil and gravel under the pipes and forms a greasy substance called biomass. Biomass slows the rate at which the wastewater leeches into the soil, causing the wastewater to collect near or on the surface or back up into your drain lines.
