If you are having a drain field issue, turn to us for drain field pumping.
Most homeowners in the Wilmington, North Carolina area understand the need for regular septic tank pumping. What you might not know is that there are situations in which drain field pumping can prove useful. It isn’t something that always needs to be done on a regular basis like septic tank pumping, but it is a good tool for resolving certain issues with a drain field. At Sewer & Drain Medic, we have the specialized equipment needed to perform drain field pumping when the drain field has been clogged with solids or a bacterial slime.
Generally speaking, the only time you’ll need drain field pumping is if your septic system has been overwhelmed by excessive use or inadequate maintenance. Solids do not reach the drain field as long as they are regularly removed from the septic tank. FOGs (fat, oil, grease) do not clog up the drain field as long as you’ve taken care not to let them go down the drain to the point where an excessive amount is floating in the septic tank. Bacterial slime doesn’t form as long as the drain field can dry out because it isn’t filled continuously with effluent and water because of excessive water use in the home.
We are more than happy to explain how you can avoid needing drain field pumping, but it is good to know you can turn to us should this service be required. If you have been told your drain field needs repairs or replacement, reach out to us first to see if drain field pumping could be the cost-effective solution you need.
