FAQs About Drain Field Inspection

Our team at Sauer Septic wants to help you keep your septic system in excellent condition, and that includes the drain field. Below, we go over the answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions about drain field inspections to give you an idea of what to expect.

What does a drain field inspection involve?

A thorough drain field inspection is a pretty involved process, as it involves exposing the entire drain field so each part can be examined directly. Our team will take care of all the excavation, then we’ll inspect each piece of your drain field to assess its condition. We’ll then make any necessary repairs and take care of the cleanup process for you.

How often should I get my drain field inspected?

In general, we recommend scheduling drain field inspections every three to five years. It’s wise to get your septic system checked more frequently than that at about every one to two years, but you should also schedule a more thorough inspection for your drain field in between standard inspections. In addition, you should also get your drain field inspected right away if you suspect there is a problem with it.

What are some signs my drain field is failing?

One of the most common signs your drain field is failing—and that it therefore needs to be inspected—is the presence of wet, soggy patches on your lawn. If you notice puddles in your yard that never seem to dry out, then it’s likely your drain field has a leak. In addition, you should also schedule a drain field inspection if patches of your lawn start to become unusually green and lush, as this is often a sign that the grass is being fertilized by a greywater leak.
