Some causes for drain field replacement are preventable, but some are beyond your control.
There are several reasons why your Zephyrhills, Florida home might require drain field replacement. At Tampa Septic, we believe it is important to ascertain why you are in this position so that, if the problem was preventable, you’ll have the information you need to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Of course, some situations are completely beyond your control, but you should still know why your drain field has failed, especially if it was prematurely.
Preventable causes for drain field replacement include excessive water usage, landscaping with roots growing into the drain field, parking or driving heavy trucks or equipment over the drain field, not maintaining your septic system properly, and introducing the wrong items into your septic system. If we find that any of these have been the cause, we’ll alert you, so you don’t repeat your mistake after we’ve completed your drain field replacement project.
Some causes can be prevented by installing the drain field properly to begin with. If your drain field failed because of poor soil conditions that weren’t resolved prior to installation or it wasn’t the right size for your home, we will resolve those, so you can be confident of a longer life from your new drain field.
It is important to note that some issues are unavoidable, such as an abnormally wet season or ground shifts that have damaged the tank or drain field. If causes such as these have happened, there is a good chance that your neighbors are experiencing problems as well.
