The drain field is an integral part of your septic system. It allows wastewater to move out of your system and filter into the ground. Without a drain field, your septic tank would back up and cause problems in your home and yard. Bacteria and waste would leach into the ground and hurt the environment. We always recommend professional installation and maintenance of the drain field to ensure that it always works properly. Here are a few reasons why proper drain field installation is key.
- Prevent Wastewater From Backing Up Into Your Drains. If your drain field is not properly installed, wastewater will not drain correctly from your septic tank, and the waste inside will back up into your home. Your drains can become clogged and could even back up into your home through your shower, toilet, or sink. Proper drain field installation will ensure that your system works together smoothly and protects your home from clogs and flooding.
- Keep Your Septic System Running Effectively. Each piece of your septic system plays an important part and moves waste away from your home efficiently. Proper installation of each piece of your system, including your drain field, will help it to be most effective.
- Prevent Strong Odors. A drain field that has not been properly installed will usually have problems with water pooling above it and odors lingering in the air around it. With careful installation, these issues can be prevented.
- Increase the Lifespan of Your Septic System. Installing an effective drain field will allow your system to run efficiently and prevent large problems from arising. This will increase the lifespan of your septic system and help it to run smoothly for many years.
