How Drain Fields Work
The drain field uses a network of downward-sloping pipes with holes that fan away from your septic tank. The shallow areas prevent impurities and bacteria from leaching into the soil surrounding your tank. If your septic drain field is not working as it should, runoff can occur, overflowing into your yard, bringing foul odors. Additionally, nearby animals could ingest the toxic wastewater.
When Is Repair Necessary?
There are several signs of a drain field issue. Some things you can look out for include the following:
- Gurgling sounds in plumbing and drains
- Having to flush toilets more than once
- Slower drains inside the home
- Black gunk that develops near your septic tank on the ground
- Foul, sewer-like odors outside or inside the property
- Soggy areas in the yard, which may be lush and green
