Septic System Repair in Phoenix, AZ

What Is A Septic System?

Septic systems are underground wastewater, or “graywater” treatment structures, most prevalently found in rural areas without a centralized sewer. These systems use a combination of nature and developed technology to treat water from your bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry. They primarily hold water that is cleaner that sewage, or “blackwater,” but is still classified as waste runoff produced by your household plumbing system. However, in some parts of the East Valley, septic systems are relied upon for sewage, drain water, and all wastewater management.

Phoenix Drain Field Repair for Your Septic System

The wastewater in your home or business septic system has four main locations:

  1. House or building (where it originates)
  2. Septic tank (where it collects and separates)
  3. Distribution box (where it is diverted into one of three or four pipes)
  4. Drain field (where it is finally deposited)

The last component of your septic system, the drain field, requires a high level of skill to service. Septic drain fields are used to remove contaminants and impurities from the liquid that emerges from the septic tank. The drain field typically consists of an arrangement of trenches that contain perforated pipes and a porous material, often consisting of gravel, which is covered by a layer of soil to prevent animals and surface runoff from reaching the volume of wastewater requiring disposal, distributed through these trenches. The size of the drain field just depends on how permeable the ground is. If the earth is composed primarily of hard, clay-like soils, the drain field will need to be much larger. If it is soft and easy to break apart, it does not need to be as large.

When Do I Need Drain Field & Septic System Service in Phoenix?

Regular cleaning of your septic tank is very important to the health and longevity of your drain field and septic system. Be sure to have your septic tank pumped and emptied regularly, as unexpected wastewater overflow is a nightmare for any homeowner. It is also a good idea to add enzymes to your septic tank on a regular basis. These enzyme products help break down solids in your septic tank, allowing for better dispersion and less clogging.

Ask your Rainforest technician about septic tank additives and other services.
