Part of having a septic system on your property is making sure that the septic system is in good condition and working correctly. When your septic system is having problems, it can be frustrating and expensive to deal with. This is especially true with the drain field. The purpose of the drain field is to allow the contaminated water to be treated through the soil, leaving it uncontaminated and safe. When the drain field is not working properly, there can be many problems, and one of the big ones is that your drinking water can become contaminated. If you suspect any problems with your drain field, contact a professional immediately to have them come look at it.
You might not know what to look for or how to tell that your drain field is not working correctly. There are a few things you should watch out for because they all can point to a problem. If you notice that your drains are draining slower than normal, this could mean you have a problem. This includes tub and shower drains, sink drains, and even toilets. If the grass or vegetation around the drain field seems to be growing faster than other areas of your yard, this also indicates a problem. Finally, if you notice a bad smell that seems to be coming from your drain field, it means you likely have a problem, and it needs to be looked at.
