Drainfield Installations by Certified Technicians

Kendall Septic Service's drainfield installation experts will come out to your home or place of business to let you know your options. They will take measurements to make sure that they can install an appropriately-sized drainfield. Kendall Septic Service pulls permits for every site that we perform work on to ensure your protection. When inspection time comes, your drainfield will be up to code.

The pipes installed for drainfields allow the liquid from your septic tank to flow through your yard undetected for final disinfection treatment before it reaches the organisms in your soil. Kendall Septic Service has found that grass and shallow-rooted plants are the best ground-covers for your drainfield. If you are not careful when choosing plants for shelter, the roots may cause problems later on with the drainfield pipes.

Dos and Don'ts of Drainfields

  • DO NOT park or drive vehicles or equipment over the drainfield or septic system.

  • DO NOT install driveways, patios, carports, decks, storage sheds, sports courts, landscaping barriers, swimming pools, or fire pits over your drainfield or septic system.

  • DO NOT have structures over the drainfield.

  • DO NOT plumb perimeter or footing tile sump pumps into your septic system.

  • DO NOT allow animals to graze in the vicinity.

        The above activities pack soil and may cause damage to the drainfield. 

  • DO get on our schedule for routine septic tank pumping to keep it working properly and avoid expensive repairs.

  • DO add a biological enhancement such as SR-10 to your system if you use bleach or antibacterial household cleaners to recharge your system.
