What Are Drainfields & How Do They Work?

A drainfield, also known as a leach field or disposal field, is an underground system of perforated pipes located next to your septic tank. These pipes separate contaminants from liquid after it leaves the septic tank, acting somewhat like a filter. To understand how drainfields work, it’s useful to know how your septic system functions as a whole:

  • Wastewater from your house flows to the septic tank. 
  • Solid waste sinks to the bottom, and will eventually be pumped out. 
  • Bacteria in the tank breaks down liquid waste, such as fat or oil. 
  • The liquid flows through the drainfield, where it is naturally filtered by soil and absorbed into the ground.

Signs You Need a Drainfield Repair

Drainfields are a critical component of your septic system. If yours stops functioning properly, you may experience serious problems such as flooding or exposed sewage and other hazardous contaminants. That’s why it’s so important to know when your system needs professional attention. Here are some signs that your drainfield needs to be repaired:

  • Pools of standing water on your drainfield
  • Sewage odors in your home or near the drainfield
  • Lusher or greener grass in your drainfield
  • Slow drains and bathtubs or toilets not flushing
