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.
Septic repair options for high water table situations require a properly designed septic system. Properly installed septic systems is important too, if not more important. If the water table is too high dewatering might be required to install your septic system properly.
Southern Water and Soil provides septic systems that are properly designed and take into account factors affecting the function of the septic system. Providing the septic design and installation provides a consensus on what is being done on the property that will work. You want a septic company that has been properly trained on different septic systems.
Properly designed septic systems will include soil evaluations that provide adequate drainfield for the structure and use of the system.

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.
Southern Water and Soil, Inc., recently installed a new septic system for a RV Park in Dade City, Florida. SWS engineered the septic system, installed the septic system, and maintains the septic system. Providing a one-stop shop for the septic system needs helps SWS stay ahead of the competion.
SWS installs innovative and cost effective septic systems that work and save our clients money. Septic system design and engineering is very important to the functioning of the septic system. Providing education to the customer about their septic tank is what we strive to do. If you have questions about your septic system or would like a professional to explain the options for your septic needs then call SWS.
Through the use of Geoflow drip irrigation, Norweco treatment systems, filters by Bear Onsite, controls by Orenco Systems, and other design considerations SWS provides solid septic system design and installations.
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.
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.
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.

Southern Water and Soil, Inc., is one of Tampa’s best septic system replacement and repair specialists. The owner is Greg Mayfield. Greg is a former Florida Department of Health septic system inspector. He has worked in the industry for over 17 years and is familiar with the State of Florida septic rules. This is very important because when receiving quotes for drain field replacements it is important that the installer understands the rules.
Separation from seasonal high water tables, whether the system will be mounded, is there a limiting soil later… This is all important information and the homeowner needs to know the options. Should I get a low pressure dosing system? Should I get a time dosed control panel? What is the difference between an alarm an a 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.
Sometimes a drainfield replacement is required due to drainfield failure. There are many things that can cause a drainfield to fail.
1. Excessive water use
2. Water leaks
3. Use of Fats, oils, and greases
4. Harmful chemicals
5. Roots from trees
6. System damage by vehicular traffic.

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.
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.
Preparing the drainfield bed to the proper height is required. If a seasonal high water table is encountered or a limiting soil layer can impact the height of your septic system. We get questions all the time from customers about why their septic system is too high. 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. SWS can design and engineer your septic system after you have made an educated decision on the options that are out there for your system.
PTI Multi Pipe and Infiltrator Chambers are an example of systems that receive a reduction in height from 12″ to 8″. This provides a 4″ reduction in the height of the septic system. 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. If you are looking for septic system mound height reductions or septic system aerial size reductions then let SWS go over the different options for you.
