As an owner of a property with a septic system, you probably know what you have to do to keep your septic system up and running. You need to be able to use your septic system multiple times a day, so ignoring it and not taking care of your septic system is not a good idea. Chances are you have it pumped on a regular basis, because if it gets too full problems can arise. But what you may not know is that it is important to have your entire septic system inspected on a regular basis, and that includes the septic drain field. This is important to keep your septic system in good working condition.
Your septic drain field is designed to help manage the wastewater in your septic system. The liquid wastewater in your septic tank will drain and enter the drain field where it will be properly disposed of. If the drain field is bad it can cause a lot of problems and may even contaminate your groundwater. If you notice the grass becoming greener over your drain field, a bad smell in your yard, or if the grass is soggy and flooded, you need to have your drain field inspected right away to determine what the problem is so that it can be repaired. It is also a good idea to have the drain field inspected every time you have your tank pumped so they can prevent any problems before they happen. Taking care of your septic system will extend its life and will make sure that it always works when you need it.
