How Do I Know I Need Drain Field Repair?

How your wastewater is managed is critical to the longevity of your home. Drain fields are made up of a network of pipes to filter and slowly release your wastewater back into the ground at a safe rate. 

Here are a few signs your drain field needs repair:

  • Unexpected puddles: Your drain field should not create puddles or soggy ground. This may be caused by a leak or blockage preventing sewage from being properly released.
  • Foul odors: Unfiltered sewage can cause unpleasant odors around your drain field that won’t go away. Regular inspections and cleanings are the best way to prevent this malfunction.
  • Slow drainage: A compromised drain field can cause your system to drain slower than usual. This may also indicate that you must schedule a septic pumping service before drainage stops.
  • Unusually green grass: A leak that releases more wastewater than it should cause areas of lush or greener grass around your drain field. Don’t let animals or children near this area because it may have harmful bacteria. Instead, call American Tank Cleaning for expert septic repairs in Stafford & the surrounding areas.

Your drain field is a critical aspect of your entire plumbing system. It’s crucial that you trust our professionals as soon as you notice an issue with your drain field or septic tank.

Distribution Box Repair

The distribution box is used to divide the liquids through the various pipes in the drain field, so they don’t overload and cause a failure. Over time, the sewage gases and moisture from the wastewater will corrode your distribution box and cause untreated sewage to enter the soil and groundwater.

On average, a distribution box or D-box replacement can cost about $1,000. If you notice cracks, root intrusion, or recent flooding, it’s time for a replacement. Signs your septic system needs a service include foul odors, increased plant growth, or a D-box full of water. A distribution box lasts up to 20 years with regular maintenance, so make sure you trust American Tank Cleaning when you need expert septic repair in Stafford.

A distribution box can be made of plastic, concrete, or fiberglass, depending on your budget and need for a long-term solution. Concrete boxes cost the most but can last decades. Plastic and fiberglass materials are easier to install but are lighter and can begin to float if not properly anchored.

We want your septic system to last a long time. That’s why we provide a team with over 20 years of experience that’s available 24/7, reliable, and family oriented. There is nothing more important to our professionals than helping your family stay protected against wastewater and harmful bacteria.
