Before and after septic pictures and the drainfield installation process
We recently completed a project in Lutz, Florida. Another company tried an alternative drainfield repair using an aeration unit. The drainfield was not functioning. So we had to excavate the bad drainfield and the bad soil and haul it away. We replaced the bad soil with washed septic sand. This is a must for a properly designed septic system.
Proper drainage of the septic system requires a soil test to determine what the soil loading rate is for the native soils onsite. Once the size is determined the bad soil is removed and good soil is placed to aid in the drainage.
Once the the drainfield has been installed it is time for the Health Department to inspect the system and determine if the construction was done properly. Covering the system requires the right equipment to be used. We use track machines to lessen the load on the soil.
When SWS covers we haul away any debris and have your site ready for your landscaping to be re-installed. If you don’t have a local landscaper we can recommend a company or two.
If you are in the Tampa Area and need a new septic or drainfield then give us a call at 813-785-0500.
Southern Water and Soil replaced a PTI multi-pipe system that failed within a 3 year period. The PTI 9 pipe or ADS multi-pipe system is a product that receives a reduction in drainfield size that allows a more affordable solution.
There are usually more than one reason a drainfield fails. One must look at the amount of water, fats, oils, and grease that enter the septic system. When a system is reduced in size due to the product it leaves very little room for error.
Let SWS review your situation and provide you with septic solutions.
Septic tank installation requires a company that has the right equipment and know-how.
Southern Water and Soil, Inc., installed new tanks for a mobile home park that was adding 6 new homes to the park.
Installing septic tanks requires the right equipment at the right time. There are many factors that can make an installation go wrong. If the groundwater is too high then the ground may have to be dewattered. This can add 3,000 dollars to the project in a hurry.
Adding water to the tanks is very important to keep the septic tank from floating out of the ground. This also provides stability to the tanks after getting them set in place.
If you need a new septic system installed then don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can make sure you get the best product for your installation.
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.

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.
