Our drain field restoration service process and features include:
- Locating the drainfield
- Jetting each drainfield lateral
- Installing clean-out/vent accesses
- Terralift (for rejuvenating systems)
Terra-lifting, also referred to as soil shaking, can rejuvenate your septic system by breaking apart the bio-mat that is causing the drain field failure and fracturing the soil to enable a flow of water to saturate the ground once again. Terralift is the key technology in this process. It uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate soil to the depths of three to six feet – depending on the depth of your Drain field. It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate using a high pressure compressor creating a network of fissures and cracks which break up the bio-mat that has formed on the walls of trenches, and Loosens compacted soil in the Drain field as shown. Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, the air will move horizontally and vertically upward through the soil. This process is repeated every four feet (depending on the soil conditions) around each of the Drain field trenches.
