Leach field rejuvenation is a fantastic service that Top Dog Sewer & Drain provides. It can be a lifesaver for some customers with a failing septic leach field by simply cleaning the field instead of replacing it.
Before getting into how this service can help, it is important to understand how a septic system works. There are many kinds of septic systems but for these purposes we will talk about a conventional septic system which is the most common style found here in New Hampshire.
All of the water in your home or business flows through one “main drain” into your septic tank (a large box that holds water and waste). Without a place for the water to go your septic tank would fill up very quickly so inside the tank solids and liquids are separated by baffles and in some cases a filter. The “grey water” or effluent passes through the outgoing baffle and filter free of heavy debris. From here it goes to the distribution box where it is dispersed to your leach field. Effluent flows out of the leach field pipes through gravel surrounding the pipes and is eventually treated by microbes in the soil below.
In a perfect world absolutely no solid waste would travel out of the septic tank and into the leach field but that is not the case. Over time, solid waste can travel through the outgoing baffle and build up in the drains of your leach field which obstructs the flow of water into the gravel. Rejuvenation is the process of removing that build up.
The first step requires us to locate and access of the distribution box using either a map or our inspection camera’s locating capabilities. From the D-box we use the high pressure water jet to pull all the sludge and debris from each individual the drain pipe of leach field back into the distribution box for removal. This method is highly effective under the right circumstances please call for more information to see if rejuvenation is right for you.
