What Is A Leach Field for Septic Tanks?

Eco Pumping Services truck

Also known as a septic drain field, a leach field is a component found in the septic tank systems of Pembroke Pines, FL homes and businesses. The role of a leach field is to remove the impurities from wastewater by breaking down the bacteria in biodegradable and organic substances and then drain and disperse liquid waste from the tank.

What Does A Leach Field Look Like?

A leach field consists of a series of pipes that sit underground and are typically surrounded by gravel or permeable soil. Throughout the pipes are small holes on the sides and bottom; when the wastewater flows through the pipes, it leaches into the gravel or soil that surrounds it.

Addressing Problems with Your Septic Tank System

A healthy leach field that’s working properly doesn’t affect the surrounding soil. On the other hand, leach fields that aren’t running smoothly can cause fertilization of the soil, meaning that you’ll be able to spot lush green grass in the area of your leach field. There may even be puddles of water present. If this is something that you notice, you should contact a septic tank professional.

Regular septic tank maintenance is a must to help ensure that your entire system stays running smoothly. If your leach field fails, or your tank is full, your entire system can suffer.

The experienced technicians of Eco Pump Services in Pembroke Pines, FL can perform septic system inspections to make sure everything is running smoothly and put you on a regularly scheduled maintenance protocol. We’re glad you help all homeowners out with their septic tank needs. Give us a call today!
