Jacuzzi drain repair
The conventionally designed drainfield is comprised of beds or trenches lined with coarse sand or gravel. Each trench is buried or embedded 12 to 36 inches underground. Perforated drain tiles or pipes distribute the wastewater from the distribution box over the gravel layer to be absorbed by the soil. The gravel layer helps support the drain field, stores wastewater during peak flow times, separates the pipes from the soil, and distributes the effluent evenly over the soil. This drainfield design is the least expensive and is most commonly available on residential sites. One of the drainfield problems that can occur with this design is that over time the soil beneath the drainfield compacts due accumulated weight of the gravel. Once the soil is compacted, the drainfield will fail as wastewater cannot percolate through it, and will thus back-up into the upstream system and ultimately the home.
The drip irrigation drainfield recycles treated wastewater into an irrigation system that sustains plant and tree life. Its shallow-based tubing can be maneuvered around trees, plants and shrubs, even those on uneven terrain. Expect monthly maintenance on recirculation pumps and drip irrigation tubing maintenance.
Septic System/Drainfield Ownership and Maintenance
- Have septic tanks, boxes and the drainfield system evaluated regularly; pump and clean all tanks and distribution boxes once every 3-5 years.
- Pump grease traps for garbage disposals every 1-3 years.
- Make sure you use water saving fixtures and try to conserve water. Make sure all faucets and fixtures are in working order and not leaking.
- It is a good idea to keep a record of the septic tanks, distribution boxes and drainfield design layout and of your cleaning schedule.
- Make sure to consult your local health department before installing home additions, swimming pools, decks, patios, parking lots or other soil-disturbing additions.
