An outstanding bunch of folks. I needed my tank pumped asap to deal with a plumbing issue and Sarah went above and beyond to fit me in. When the truck arrived, they went right to it and checked out my septic system, and reccomended a fix that was safety related. Afterwards, they gave me a thorough run down of services done, reccomended improvements, and advice on maintaining the system. I'd happily reccomend them to friends.

What Should You Consider With Septic Drain Field Installations

Septic drain field installation needs to be completed by a professional who understands how these systems work.  Your new septic drain field is an important investment in your property and you want to make sure it will last a long-time and operate trouble-free for many years.  Poorly installed septic drain fields are one of the most common reasons we're called out to replace a drain field and it's generally avoidable.

#1.  The size of your septic system.  The more bathrooms and people in your household the more wastewater your system will generate.  Larger systems require larger drain fields.  We want to make sure your system is sized appropriately for your specific property and it's use.

#2.  Is your property flat and level or does it have a slope?  Drain field installation on flat and level ground is much less complex than installing a septic system on a slope.  Sloped properties may require the septic tank and drain field to be quite far away from each other and often require the installation of a lift station.

#3.  What Type Of Soil Do You Have?  The condition and type of your soil is very important to the efficient operation of your septic drain field.  Harder soils have poor drainage and good drainage is an integral part of an efficient septic system.

at Coleman Tank Solutions, Inc. we'll be able to design and install a septic drain field on your property regardless of the complications your property presents.  We have over 25 years of experience in the septic and wastewater industry.  We'll be able to install a septic drain field that will meet all county requirements and last for many years with regular septic maintenance.

Signs Your Septic Drain Field Might Be Failing:

  • Do you notice water pooling up on your drain field?
  • If you have water pooling does it smell foul like raw sewage?  If yes, that's not a good sign.
  • Are you dealing with unusually frequent sewage backups in your home?

Here Are Some Common Reasons Septic Drain Fields Fail:

Septic drain fields are relatively simple systems so when they fail or show signs of failing it's usually easy to pinpoint the source of the problem with a thorough inspection by an experienced septic inspector.

#1. Drain fields are situated just below the surface of the soil and as a result they can be easily damaged by heavy equipment or vehicles driving over them.  The weight can crush the piping which results in the system not being able to efficiently disperse the wastewater, leads to clogs, and septic system failure.  Do not drive vehicles or heavy equipment over your drain field.  This includes not parking boats, trailers, or RV's on your drain field either.

#2.  Brush, trees, bushes, hedges, etc... growing overtop of your drain field can and will eventually cause problems.  The root systems of plants and trees are attracted to the nitrogen rich wastewater and they will infiltrate the pipes in your septic field.  This can cause clogs and prevent your drain field from working.

#3.  Missing effluent filters are very common.  Your effluent filter was designed to capture solids and stop them from entering your drain field.  Your effluent filter is something that should be regularly cleaned (every 6 months or so) so that it is in good working order and not disrupting the flow of wastewater.  When a filter gets clogged what usually happens is the wastewater builds-up in your tank resulting in slow flushing toilets, slow drains, and even backups into your home.

#4.  Poor system maintenance is probably one of the top causes of septic drain field failures.  Pumping out your septic tank every 3-5 years is the best insurance you have to protect your drain field.  When solids build up in your septic tank they will eventually end up in your drain field.  Your drain field was meant to handle wastewater, not solids so the end result will be a severely clogged drain field that will need to be replaced.
