The Importance of the Drain Field

When wastewater flows out of your septic tank, it will need to go somewhere. Your drain field catches, absorbs, and filters this water, making it an essential component of your septic system. 

Each area and septic system will require a different type of drain field configuration. You will need a team of professionals to ensure you have the appropriate number of pipes for the type of soil in your area.

Bacteria in your septic system prevents liquids from being absorbed properly, which can trigger serious drain field issues. Clogging may develop and require professional intervention. A malfunctioning drain field can result in unpleasant smells, sewage backups, and even illness. 

If you notice any of these warning signs, you should immediately reach out to our technicians. Our qualified team at Scout Septic, Grease and Drain can efficiently inspect your drain field, identify problems, and provide repair and maintenance solutions. We can also offer guidance that can help you avoid the need for expensive repairs going forward. 

The Functions and Benefits of the Drain Field

Do not take your drain field for granted! This important piece of the system helps keep your septic tank healthy. It can be helpful to understand how your drain field works and what it accomplishes.

Some of the most important functions of your drain field include:

  • Facilitating a simple and affordable treatment. Drain fields do a lot with a little. They are relatively basic and require comparatively little maintenance relative to your septic tank.
  • Distributing and filtering water underground. A configuration of perforated pipes delivers wastewater underground for easy filtration and absorption. 
  • Treating wastewater. Your drain field represents the final stage of wastewater treatment. After wastewater moves through your home septic system, it arrives at your drain field and is safely treated and eliminated.

Our Areas of Service

Whether you need a new drain field installed or need help with an existing system, our technicians have the knowledge and experience to assist you. We are responsive to emergency situations and are prepared to provide expedient support, no matter the scale or complexity of the problem.

Our drain field services in Clackamas County include:

  • Installation. Your septic tank will need a carefully-configurated drain field to safely dispose of treated water. Without the appropriate drain field, your septic system will likely overload in a matter of months. After assessing your property, we can advise what you need and help you install the appropriate piping. 
  • Inspection. You should take proactive steps to ensure your drain field continues to function as designed. Drain fields should be inspected every few years, even if no problems are detected. If you do notice foul odors, unusual standing water, or plumbing issues, you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Our team can inspect your drain field system and quickly pinpoint problems.
  • Repair. When a problem is identified, we will evaluate all potential solutions and offer a detailed report explaining the nature of the issue. This assessment will include how we recommend our technicians fix the problem and a transparent estimate of what the repair will cost.
