What Kind of Drain Field Do You Need
You may be unfamiliar with septic systems and how they function if this is your first time having one placed on your property. Many components work together to form a septic system, including the septic tank, the drain field, and the pipes that carry waste from the tank to the drain field. As long as it is the right size, a prefabricated septic tank may be purchased, but a drain field installation and the septic tank should be left to a professional.
There are many details to consider when it comes to drain field installation. To some extent, the drain field’s dimensions will be set by the septic tank’s holding capacity, which will be affected by the total number of plumbing fixtures on the property, such as sinks and bathrooms, and the associated wastewater flow rate. The septic tank receives water and waste from the toilet, sink, and other plumbing fixtures whenever those fixtures are used.
After the septic tank has processed the water and segregated the waste, the water will flow onto the drain field where any remaining pollutants will be removed before the water is released back into the environment. Each system has its own unique requirements for the drain field’s placement on the land. You can use a regular gravity system if your land slopes and the drain field can be set up lower than the septic tank. However, a pressurized system requires a pump if the septic tank is located above the drain field.
Because septic tank and drain field installation can be tricky, it is best to hire a professional to do the work. A septic engineer can tailor your system to your specifications and ensure everything functions. If you are in the Plantation, FL area and need assistance.
