Terralift for drain field repair

The first Terra-Lift machines were developed to fracture the soil around trees to allow much needed water to reach their roots. Today, the Terra-Lift is used in many applications, including restoring septic drain fields. The process involves locating the drain lines of the septic system, and “blasting” pressurized air deep into the soil surrounding the lines.

The fractured ground created by the Terra-Lift creates channels along the walls of the affected drain field. This allows for water to flow into the virgin soil as it was originally intended.

Bioremediation with Pro-Pump

A key component to a long lasting septic system is bioremediation. It all starts in the septic tank. It’s in the septic tank that all of the collected waste is seperated and the liquid is dispersed into the drain field.

However, over the years the solids in a septic tank can go beyond capacity and overflow into the distribution box(es) and drain lines. When the excess sludge and solids enter the drain lines, uneven distribution or a complete dispersal blockage of septic liquids can occure. Many septic specialist refer to this as “biomat.”

Pro Pump,  developed by Ecological Laboratories, is a proven and environmentally safe way to eat away the harmful sludge and solids of a septic system.

Septic Maintenance

Septic maintenance involves making sure your septic system runs as intended. To do so make sure your toilets aren’t leaking. It’s also important to have your septic tank pumped every 3 to 5 years. Ensuring your septic system runs smoothly will help avoid repairs.

Septic system maintenance guidelines:

1. Septic tanks should be pumped on a regular basis, usually once every 3 to 5 years.

2. Septic drain fields should be monitored and their flow adjusted. With many systems the flow is set only when installed. However some have ground level boxes that should be set once every six months to ensure proper distribution. This is done in conjunction with setting the septic pump flow rate to ensure proper pump longevity.
