We offer all kinds of septic services in Lutz, FL, ranging from septic system design to drain field replacement.
Most septic systems in Lutz, FL consist of two main components—the septic tank and the drain field. The septic tank is where the wastewater goes after leaving your home or business. In the septic tank, the waste is separated from the water with the help of beneficial bacteria. The water then leaves the septic tank, flowing into a drain field for further filtration before being released back into the environment.
The drain field consists of a network of perforated pipes buried underground. When water leaves the septic tank, it flows through the drain field, where it is filtered to remove more solid waste, and may also be treated with chlorine or other chemicals. Once the water has been filtered, it is then released back into the environment.
Over time, your septic drain field will need repairs and maintenance. There may also come a time when it needs to be replaced completely. Some potential indications that you need a drain field replacement include:
- Excess water usage
- Inadequate design of the system
- Poor soil conditions
- Clogged drain field due to leaks
- Root growth damaging the system
- Malfunction or damage to pipes
