RELIABLE ROOTER DRAIN FIELD RESTORATION

Ensuring the Health of Your Septic System and Family

As the owner of a septic system, you understand that there is much more to your home’s plumbing than just a septic tank. The drainfield is the area of your yard where underground, perforated tubes bring filtered effluent from the tank, where it is then absorbed and purified by gravel or sand. If this part of your septic system isn’t working properly, then you could risk property damage or potential health hazards.

What is drainfield restoration?

When natural bacteria counts are especially low, large amounts of hazardous waste can accumulate in the drainfield, possibly leading to a backup. This waste is typically processed by bacteria within the septic tank, but low bacteria counts can mean that this solid waste instead flows into the drainfield, clogging the 1b and 2b gravel that make up the drain bed. Once waste begins piling up, you will notice standing water on the surface of the drainfield or even foul odors outside your home. In order to fix this problem fast, you need drainfield restoration to remove the source of the problem and ensure that normal soil absorption can take place.

WHAT IS AEROBIC BACTERIA?

Aerobic bacteria are microscopic organisms that you might refer to as germs, which require the presence of oxygen to live and grow. This kind of bacteria is obviously very important to your septic system because they break down solid waste. Many septic tanks are outfitted with aerators or air pumps, which help promote the growth of aerobic bacteria. While most of these components will last for years without incident, they are moving parts that will require eventual service. In other words, if your system does use an aeration system, then you should expect periodic maintenance that is more intensive than standard septic treatments. If you’re a homeowner in the Metro Atlanta or North Georgia area, call our team today for a full system inspection and restoration of normal bacterial levels.
