Protect Your Home & Neighbors with Proper Drainage

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandFebruary 7th, 2017

Knowing where your drain field is and how to maintain it is crucial to protecting your property, as well as your neighbors’. Improper drainage can become an environmental concern by spoiling soil, water, and plants.

Drainage, Lakeland FLWastewater is filtered by soil in the drain field and purified by bacteria. A failing drain field can cause unsanitary wastewater to leak into your drinking water and affect your neighbors’ well water, too. Getting your drain field inspected can save you thousands of dollars, as replacing a ruined drain field can cost upwards of $30,000.

A well-maintained drain field filters wastewater safely back into the environment. Over-usage of water in your home and damage to the system can cause improper drainage, and unsafe pollutants can seep back into the ground and water. Quick tip: try to spread out laundry over the week, rather than doing it all in one day. This prevents overloading the system.

It’s important to remember where you drain field is on your property and not to park cars on it or drive over it. Trees with strong roots should also not be planted there, as they can interfere with the drainage. Groundwater pollution and leaking of toxic gases are other environmental issues that can be prevented with careful maintenance and a watchful eye.
