Drain Field & Septic Tank System Restoration

Environmental Q&A

IS IT ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE?
Yes, we are proud that our machine only uses air with zero additional toxic chemicals or solid additives. Our process can easily be adjusted to implement any and all requests by local environmental regulations.

DOES THE PROCESS INJECT ANYTHING FOREIGN TO THE GROUND?
Nothing but air is used to break up the biomat and loosen the soil. On occasion, we will fill the probe holes with small (pea) gravel.

IS IT NOT ENVIRONMENTALLY BETTER TO INSTALL A NEW SYSTEM?
Not necessarily. With a septic system, the soil in the absorption area becomes contaminated. Unnecessary replacement can contaminate even more soil. If the current system can be kept healthy and working properly for many more years than environmental impact is greatly limited. Often space for a new system is very limited leaving no reasonable options. When the system can be maintained or rejuvenated it benefits everyone.

WILL THE PROCESS DAMAGE THE CURRENT SYSTEM?
Our process is not the right tool for every system, but with the most common Perforated Pipe with Gravel Bed, Infiltrator, and Sand systems it works well. Great care is taken in locating the lateral lines so that the probe remains in the absorption soil. If the probe does enter the system, damage won't likely occur. Adjustments can be made on the machine if concerns of damage do exist such as air pressure and depth.
