Septic Drain Field Repair & Installation

Drain Field

After wastewater is treated at the septic tank, the purified water exits the septic tank through the baffles. A drain line leads the clean water to the distribution box where it is dispensed to the drain field. Birmingham Sewer-Septic Co. has valuable drain field installation experience and repairs malfunctioning drain fields.

Contact Birmingham Sewer-Septic Co. for septic tank drain fields that properly allow water to naturally evaporate or seep into the groundwater of the underlying soil.

When installing a septic drain field, the most important decision is the first: location. Our septic system experts study the layout of each property and soil to identify the best location for your drain field to do its job successfully. The trained professionals of Birmingham Sewer-Septic Co. meet all of Alabama’s septic system ordinances and skillfully install your drain field to ensure that it is long-lasting and in compliance with state and local regulations.

The most common problem with drain fields is a slimy mat that forms on the trench walls that inhibits the treated water from seeping into the ground water. Noticeable signs of a clogged drain field are gurgling sink, shower, or bath drains, slow draining water,water entering through the floor drains, and wet spots in the yard.

These symptoms are most noticeable on days when an exceptional amount of wastewater is created (e.g. laundry day). Every septic system is designed to manage a predetermined amount of wastewater. When a household consistently exceeds this limit, the drain field remains saturated which causes this damaging bacterial mat to form.

Drain fields are as vital to a septic system as the septic tank. Birmingham Sewer-Septic Co. will answer your questions and create viable solutions for your drain field installation or repair needs. Call today.
