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.

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.

In the Tampa Bay Area there are areas that have water tables that seasonally get high. If you are on a septic system these water tables pose a threat to your septic drainfield. The conventional method of repairing septic drain fields that are failing is to build a mound drainfield. Some people call them Mt. Flushmore.
The reason that these systems have to be mounded is due to the soil conditions that are present at the subject property. SWS can install mound systems and alternative systems.
An alternative system worth mentioning is the use of a Norweco Green ATU with Geoflow drip irrigation system.
When you have a drip irrigation system the mound is reduced in height or eliminated. Also the drip field doesn’t have to be replaced if maintenance is performed correctly.
