It’s not as hard as you might think to determine you have a drain field problem. Your septic system’s drain field carries the wastewater from the tank and deposits it into the ground after it’s been treated for safety. Signs you have a drain field issue are extra plant growth or soggy ground above the field. In other words, does your grass grow taller in one area of the yard and is that area on top of your septic system drain field? If so, you probably have a leak. Rooter Express South Carolina, LLC, can come to your home and inspect your field to make certain everything is a-okay.

What Clogs the Drain Field?

If you know drain fields, you know they are a combination of rock beds and soil layers. You might think they couldn’t clog because they’re open materials not piping, but they can. Oil is the number one enemy of your septic system’s drain field, and it’s hard to prevent at least a little bit of oil entering into the system. You might not pour oil down your drains, but your dishes are oily when you wash them, as is your hair and skin. Another culprit is sediment from your tank. If you don’t have your tank pumped regularly, the waste can overflow into the drain field and clog it. Worse, it can also dry out the bacteria used to treat the wastewater and make it safe.
