Myth No.4: My septic bed is always wet and the grass grows really well in that area. That's normal?

septic tank pooling water



Fact - If you think this is normal, than ummmm WRONG!
That's a malfunction, meaning the effluent took the path of least resistance and found a breakout point. If the water is flowing on the surface of your lawn, it means it cannot drain downward into the native soil and through the bed of septic sand for treatment. This is bad!

Dye testing will prove these results as well when the fluorescent dye is found on the surface of the lawn or down slope of the septic system.

If you notice this pooling, or constant wet grass area around your septic field, you better Contact Us immediately to determine the source of the breakout point, and to remedy it for you.
