“I called Sauer Septic after seeing them on Home Advisor. Daryl was great and to the point. He came out the same day for an estimate. The drain field came out great and was completed in one day. Even a truckload of dirt dropped on the same day. I had to wait for a permit, but that's out of their control. Great company.”

Do These Things to Prevent Drain Field Repairs!
A drain field is an important and essential part of your septic system! The last stop on the waste water treatment line, your drain field helps to disperse effluent water where it can be percolated and returned to the groundwater safely. Drain field problems can turn into problems with the entire system or even with your property’s plumbing, and we at Sauer Septic want to help you prevent these problems whenever possible. Here are a few things you need to do to help prevent drain field repairs:
- Never park a vehicle on the drain field. Drain field pipes are meant to allow water to flow through them. These perforated pipes are not buried very far below the ground, and even the weight of a small vehicle can crush them. Locate your drain field and never drive any sort of equipment over it.
- Be wary of plants, trees, shrubs or roots. Plants, especially tree roots, are great at infiltrating drain field piping. Because drain field piping already has perforations, it is particularly easy for roots to find their way in and clog or crush your pipes.
- Watch your drainage. After a rainy day, watch where water is pooling on your property. If you notice pooling consistently around your drain field after it rains, you might want to consider a sump pump.
- Change some household habits. Lots of water usage can overwhelm a septic tank, and cause it to push out waste solids that will clog your drain field. Try to avoid consecutive laundry loads on the same day and space out showers whenever possible.
