Kelowna Septic Pros
Drain Field Cleaning

Attic Insulation In Kelowna BC Canada

It is often possible to clean and renew a clogged septic leach field instead of replacing the drain field lines.

Septic field lines can fail to drain when heavy solids accumulate and block perforations in the lines. This is commonly seen in septic systems that are more than 20 years old.

Note: when a septic system that’s less than 20 years old fails to drain, it’s sometimes a sign of tree roots clogging the lines, issues with the surrounding soil, structural damage to a pipe, or a faulty design.

Hydrojetting

We can use water to flush the drain field and clear up any clogs. This is a highly effective technique for drain field cleaning and will often prevent you from needing a costly drain field replacement.

Bacteria

A bacteria packet can be added to your septic system that releases important bacteria that will work to break down clogged solid waste.

If you know that your drain field is acting up and you suspect that it is clogged, then we recommend giving your septic system a break and allowing it to dry out for a little while. This means you will want to limit the amount of water that is sent through your septic system. You may want to limit the number of loads of laundry and cycles of the dishwasher you do in one day as well as repair any leaks or running toilets.
