Septic Drain Maintenance Miami, FL
The drain field, also known as a leach field, is an integral part of your septic tank system. This is the
underground area on your property where the drain field pipes filter the wastewater from the tank into the soil.
As your wastewater sinks into the soil, where it is broken down by natural bacteria, neglecting the regular
septic drain maintenance in Miami can endanger the environment and your health.
Most septic system failures are caused by issues with the drain field. As the system relies on the leach field to filter and disperse waste, if wastewater or solid waste builds up on the soil at the bottom of the leach field, the soil can plug up and prevent proper drainage.
Here are some common signs that you need drain field repairs:
- Grass over the drain field is greener than the rest of your lawn
- The surrounding area is wet, muddy, soft, or has standing water
- Sewage odor is present around drains, tanks, or the leach field
- Slow running drains or a backup in plumbing
