Don’t Forget the Drainfield

When the leach area fails, the only option is a replacement. So, make sure to pay attention for any problematic signs, including stinky, odorous bubbles begin to surface in the leach area—usually due to a lack of system pumping.

Early signs can come in the form of standing water in the lines or on the surface, indicating a failing leach area or a problem with the piping. Similarly, backed up sewage is a red flag to check your septic system’s water level. If it is high, there may be an issue with the septic tank or the leach area, which is best determined after pumping.
