How can you tell when to replace your septic drain field? The answer may be more simple than you think. Part of the answer lies in knowing what causes the drain field to fail. Some of the indications your drain field is beginning to fail includes the following:
- Overuse – There are times when a drain field needs to be replaced because of a use change. How many people in your home using your septic system daily will impact the water that must evaporate from the drain field.
- Standing Water – Your drain field should never become oversaturated. This area has to dry out regularly, so if you see wet spots or puddling, it is a sign that you need a replacement as soon as possible.
- Poor Maintenance – Without regular pumping of your tank to remove solids, your drain field can start to have sludge buildup. Most people stay on a regular schedule to have their system pumped out every 3 to 5 years, which depends on the size of your system and how much it gets used annually.
