Drain Field Installation
Drain fields are another important part of a septic system. Once wastewater has been purified in the septic tank, it then moves through a solid drain pipe into the drain field. The ins and outs of septic systems are not always on the minds of home and business owners. That’s why Atlanta septic system owners call upon Mr. Septic for all of their sewer and septic related questions and service needs.
Septic Drain Field Installations
Every septic system, from the tank to the drain field, is designed to handle a certain amount of wastewater. Our expert Atlanta septic technicians can identify the best size and type of drain field for your needs as well as the best location on your property. From soil type to the number of people regularly using the system, we will help you make an informed decision on the best type of septic system for your needs.
When water from the septic tank enters the drain field, it either evaporates or seeps into the underlying soil. Because septic systems are designed to handle a specific amount of wastewater, it can be a problem when the limit is exceeded regularly. When the drain field remains saturated, a bacterial mat may form along the trench walls. The slimy mat that builds up then prevents the drain field from properly seeping through the walls of the drain field.
