Most lawns have one section of grass that grows greener and faster, especially during the dry, summer months. If you have noticed this phenomenon, you may be surprised to know why that section of grass is so special: it is more than likely above your home’s septic field lines
After your home’s septic tank has separated incoming waste water, it becomes effluent (gray water rich in organic materials) and flows into the septic drain field (or leach field). Located underground, the soil surrounding the lines is enriched by the effluent.
Field lines are a intricate component of your home’s septic system. When these lines are installed alongside a septic tank, they undergo rigorous testing. Whether you need them installed, repaired, or maintained, we’re here to help. Our highly skilled, licensed, insured, and bonded Mobile, AL plumbers possess deep knowledge of plumbing and septic systems. This expertise ensures that every part of your home’s septic system, from fixtures to field lines, operates seamlessly.
Drain Field Problems
Because the field lines are the last step for effluent in your home’s septic system, any issues that might lead to its failure can be prevented by first ensuring your septic tank is properly maintained. Typically, anything that can cause the septic tank to fail will also affect your field lines, resulting in an inefficient processing of material that passes through the septic tank. Thus leading to solid material entering the lines.
There are various signs of field line problems, and they all start with your septic tanks. Be on the lookout for:
- Puddles of standing water in your lawn, particularly with a pungent odor.
- Frequent plumbing backups inside the home.
- Draining through fixtures has slowed dramatically.
- Odd sounds throughout the home’s plumbing system.
In severe cases, damaged lines can result in substantial wastewater flooding in your home. Ensuring regular maintenance of your septic tank and field lines is crucial. Our professional septic system repair services are here to assist.
