Drain field rejuvenation can fix your system by pumping the tank, cleaning (jetting) the drain field lines, and installing washing machine and effluent filters. Sometimes the problem is so severe that the soil needs to be fractured as well. The way M&S fractures the soil is by inserting a hollow tube into the soil and sending a 300 lb blast of air to create thousands of tiny fissures into the soil. This allows the drain field to do as its name suggests, drain.
The most common reasons for backups are due to soap residue, garbage disposal waste, hair, and grease. While these are the most common cause for issues, they are also the easiest to correct and control.
The age of your drain lines can also be a factor when backups occur. For instance, if your line has many joints and/or connections, this could lead to pipe degradation and poor infiltration. The condition of your lines itself plays a vital role in the increased likelihood of backups and failure.
Settlement, due to improper bedding of the drain lines, can cause improper flow and buildup. It is necessary to avoid improper slopes, dips, sunken joints, root infiltration and breaks.
Should you experience any warning signs, it is time to call M&S immediately. M&S will dispatch an experienced technician who will determine the source of the issue and diagnose the best solution to fix the problem. Catching troubles early will save you time, money and headaches in the long run.
