Flooding drain field? Schedule an inspection today!
When people think of a septic system, they usually think about the size of the tank or where it’s located. Often forgotten but equally important is the drain field. It is here that the wastewater that has been processed in the septic tank is able to percolate throughout the ground and return to the groundwater. Because the drain field is the last line of defense before what was once wastewater returns to the groundwater, it’s crucial that you have regular drain field inspections performed for your Brandon, Florida septic system.
There are a few things that can signal a drain field inspection needs to be performed, the first of which is flooding or excessively damp soil near your drain field. Often this signals that something is amiss underneath the ground where your drain field is located. Another thing you might notice is a foul odor emanating from the ground. Even if you can’t see the problem, you can occasionally smell it.
