Septic Drainfield Repair in the Tampa Area

If you are considering doing a septic or drainfield repair then the dry season is the time consider doing the repair. When the soil is drier there is less damage done to the soil. Wet soils cause smearing and sealing of the soil and drainfield interface.

Here are a few pictures from our latest installation for a subdivision. The wastewater is collected in a septic tank and liquids are sent to a textile filter that recirculates and treats the wastewater to a high level. Then the wastewater is used for irrigation in a field. This provides treatment of the wastewater to be recharged back to the groundwater basin.

Give us a call if you need a wastewater solution. We provide treatment systems from 200 gallons per day to 1 MGD.

5,000 Gallon Per Day System

This installation was quite tedious because we had to permit the system through the Florida’s Bureau of Onsite Sewage and the Pasco County Health Department. SWS provided the owner’s with septic engineering and permitting. ¬†Prior to permitting and engineering SWS was able to provide the owner’s with a construction cost. This helps the owner’s determine the best options for their septic system needs.

Septic Tank System Installed
Treatment Tank Installation

The treatment tanks were installed and the existing plumbing was tied into the new treatment system. This septic system added additional capacity for the RV Park. Now as other septic tanks in the facility begin to fail these systems are added to the new system through a modification permit.

Drainfield flexibility
Flexible Drainfield Design

Another note is that the drainfield dispersal using drip irrigation is very flexible. We were able to install the drip system around the trees that were onsite. Geoflow drip irrigation has a patened technology that can keep the roots from getting into the drip emitters.

So, if you want a septic system designed to last and expect quality septic parts and pieces to be installed. Then have SWS design and install your septic system.

Time Dosed Control Panel

A time dosed control panel disperses water out in increments and allows the drainfield time to soak up the effluent that is applied. This allows the drainfield to recover and last longer.

Septic System Drainfield Replacement

Are you having septic system drain field problems? Do you have drains that are backing up or a mushy soft spot in the yard? If so, then have the experts at Southern Water and Soil, Inc., take a look at the problem and see what is going on with your septic system. Many times customers call us and ask questions regarding their septic system issues. Drainfield problems can cause problems such as plumbing that backs up or smells in and around the drainfield itself. Drainfield failures can be caused by many different issues. So, let the guys at SWS take a look and find out what is troubling your septic system.

During a septic system installation soil that is unsuitable for septic effluent drainage must be excavated. Also, old drainfield will need to be removed in order for the system to percolate through the soil. A picture below shows an excavation that is ready for the health departments inspection. SWS wants the septic system to function properly and this is an important step in the installation process.

Drainfield Excavation

A proper excavation must be completed by the septic tank contractor to properly bed the drainfield product and provide a system that will function over time. Discuss your septic problems with competent staff at SWS and see what other precautions need to be maintained.

Septic System Bed

We go over their septic system requirements and provide alternative septic solutions to lower their septic system. Some of the options include alternative locations, Geoflow drip irrigation, Norweco Treatment Systems, ATU’s, and low profile Infiltrator chambers and PTI Multi-Pipe systems.

Geoflow Drip Irrigation is an engineered septic system that reduces the drainfield size on height and overall dimensions. Drip irrigation reduces the height by 11.5″ due to product only being 0.5″ in height.
