At Mathis & Sons Septic, we service and repair drain field systems in Orlando, FL and the surrounding areas.

Drain Field SystemsIf you have a septic system on your property, your drain field is a crucial component of this system. Once solids settle into your septic tank, the liquid wastewater from your home’s drainage system is discharged into an absorption area, otherwise known as the drain field. At Mathis & Sons Septic, we service and repair drain field systems in Orlando, Florida and the surrounding areas.

While drain field systems are generally low maintenance, there are several things we recommend doing to prevent the necessity for repairs or the need to have your drain field completely replaced. To maintain your septic system’s drain field:

  • Keep heavy equipment off the area. This includes things like vehicles, livestock, or any other heavy items.
  • Try to keep your home’s water level usage to a minimum. Drain field systems do not have an unlimited capacity and need time to adequately absorb and filter effluent.
  • You may want to consider planting grass and shallow-rooted plants on this area to prevent soil erosion. However, trees and larger plants should be planted a minimum of 30 feet away from the field.

Most importantly, know where your drain field system is located. If you don’t know where it is, you may not be able to detect problems and get them fixed before extensive damage is caused.

At Mathis & Sons Septic, we use state-of-the-art technology to detect and treat drain field problems. If you suspect there’s an issue with your drain field, give us a call for quick, professional, and affordable service.
