Unclog my drain field is a question I hear frequently. Clogged septic tanks and drain fields are becoming more common than ever. This is primarily due to the fact anti bacterial hand soaps and harsh cleansers are more common than ever.
These harsh anti bacterial chemicals kill off valuable beneficial coli form bacteria essential to the digestion process and the natural operation of the septic system and drain field.
When a drain field becomes clogged with solids, there are basically two ways to correct a failed clogged drain field. The first option is to replace the septic tank and the failed drain field at a cost that can range from $2,000.00 to $60,000.00 depending on your geographical location.
Unclogging a drain field can also be achieved by shocking the system with heavy concentrations of beneficial bacteria applied directly to the septic tank and drain field area followed up with a monthly septic tank and drain field maintenance program. Bacterial supplements can restore a system to a like new condition.
