LEACH FIELD (DRAIN FIELD) ASSESSMENT AND REPAIR

flooded leach fields are stinkySometimes a problem arises in the septic tank leach field. Most often, that's  because too much wastewater has accumulated in the pipes, and the ground has become supersaturated.

When the soil stays wet, the pipe trenches develop a bacterial mat that blocks the water from seeping into the rest of the soil.

Squishy Septic Tank Leach Field?

Is the soil above  your leach field squishy when you walk on it?  Is there is a sewage odor? Then you need an expert to assess the problem and determine the best repair. That may involve digging new trenches, or even laying new pipe. But if you let it go, the problem - and the stench- just keep growing.

 

Grease Trap Cleaning

Grease traps separate fats, oils and grease, and solid food waste that accumulates in your kitchen wastewater. Most often an issue for commercial restaurants and buildings with public dining areas such as cafeterias, grease traps should be cleaned at least once a month. This is one of the sometimes overlooked septic system services that really can make a difference in your operation! Schools, hospitals, nursing homes and businesses where food is served all need their grease traps serviced.
