When a Septic Issue Comes Out of Left Field

The importance of a drainfield in Leesburg or Fruitland Park, FL

Your septic issues may be beyond a full tank issue. If your septic tank has been pumped and you’re still facing issues with your Leesburg or Fruitland Park, FL system, you might be facing a drainfield failure. The drainfield is an underground system of soil, gravel and bacteria that filters the waste liquids before they enter back into the water cycle through groundwater. You may simply have a broken pipe, but in the worst case, you could have a total drainfield failure. The process of installing a new drainfield requires a permit and involves excavating the old drainfield or placing a new one in an adjacent yard.

Reasons your drainfield may need to be repaired or replaced

  • Grease in the system is cutting off oxygen, preventing aerobic bacteria from decomposing waste material
  • The field is damaged from too few septic tank pump-outs or cleanings
  • Compacted soil from heavy use of land above the drainfield
