Frequently Asked Questions

What are the steps for a field line repair?

The steps for a field line repair involve several key procedures. First, the yard is probed to locate the field lines, and then a mini-x machine is used to dig down and find the actual line. It’s important to check the water level in the septic tank, even if it has been recently pumped. If the water level is high, it must be pumped down to remove excess liquid. The next step is to locate the back of the septic tank and dig down to find the pipe that connects to the drain field. Further probing of the yard helps determine the exact location of the field lines. Once the general area is identified, excavation work is done to uncover the field line. Typically, issues such as tree roots causing damage are addressed during this phase. When the damaged field line is located, a trench is dug from the line to the septic tank. A new pipe is then laid down, connecting the line to the tank, and the trench is filled in to complete the repair process.
