Residential Drainage Fields


Septic drain fields, also called leach fields are used to remove contaminants and impurities from the liquid that comes from the septic tank. A septic tank, the septic drain field, and the installed piping comprise a complete septic system. The drain field typically consists of an series of trenches that are dug containing perforated pipes and porous material (usually gravel) covered by a layer of soil. The gravel promotes drainage and reduces root growth near the pipeline.


The dissolved organic material in the liquid is removed by bacteria which live in the soil. As the waste material moves through the soil, the temperature and chemical characteristics of the wastewater change and create unfavorable conditions for most bacteria and viruses. So, as the wastewater moves through the soil, the organic material and microorganisms are removed.


Septic tanks are generally constructed of concrete, bricks, clay, or fiberglass. The purpose of a septic tank is to remove large solids and greases and provide storage of the leftover sludge and scum. The settled solids are biologically digested by bacteria which live in environments without air. The sludge and scum layers must be removed periodically to prevent the accumulated solids and greases from clogging the soil pores.


Only a licensed and insured professional should install a drain. Rooter Express is a professionally licensed and insured drain field installation company. Rooter Express will be sure to follow all local building codes, obtain permits and have the necessary inspections.
