Types of Septic Drain Fields
There are several types of septic drain fields to choose from during the installation of a new septic system. A gravity drainfield is one of the most common systems for residential purposes, and works best for areas with relatively dry soil. A gravity drainfield allows the effluent layer to flow through gravel-filled trenches and soil before reaching the water table. A pressure distribution drainfield is a common alternative for the gravity type system, and works similarly but also has a pump to move the effluent layer though the trenches. Cesspool, drywell, and holding tank options are also used for septic systems. Our experts are happy to discuss the best option for your needs and can also repair any type of drainfield.
The drain field is an important part of your septic system, and works to distribute the wastewater that has collected in your septic tank. The drain field allows the wastewater to filter back into the soil. If you are building a new home or looking to replace your current system, our team can help and install a quality septic system. We have licensed and trained technicians that can recommend the most efficient drain field for your home and yard. As a local company, we know the soil and which drain field type works best for the Lawrenceville, GA area.

Signs there is a problem with your septic system may include backed up sewage pipes or drains, strong smells or sewage in your yard, or a more frequent need to pump your septic tank. Indicators that the problem may be associated with your drain field include surface discharge of the effluent layer, and floating scum above the baffles. Our technicians can inspect your septic tank drain lines and field and repair any damage.
