New Septic Tank and Drain FieldI have been experiencing problems with my septic system for over 5 years, About once a year I would contact Alan's Plumbing of Deland for a pump out. I knew I had a failing drain field but put off replacing it due to the cost. In Nov. 2015, Alan's Plumbing of Deland pumped out my septic tank and found a hole in the bottom of the tank and a crack running up the side of the tank. I knew I needed a new septic tank and drain field so I called Alan's Plumbing office to get a price. As a long time customer I expected a quick response. I was disappointed. I talked to their office staff three times and was told that they would send someone out when they had time. Apparently they never had time because I never heard back from them. I called Tri-County Septic System, Inc. and talked to John. He promised to come inspect my septic system and arrived the same day that I called him. He was friendly, knowledgeable, took his time determining what I needed and gave me a fair written price for a new septic tank and drain field. I let him know that I was still waiting to hear back from Alan's Plumbing but would let him know about the job soon. Because I never heard back from Alan's Plumbing, I hired Tri-County Septic System, Inc. They just installed my new septic system and I couldn't be happier with the job they did and the price they charged me. They arrived on time, were friendly, answered my questions and cleaned up after themselves. They are my new septic company and I would highly recommend them.
Tips & Advices
Though your tank can handle many gallons of water, too much water at one time can overwork the system and cause solid waste to enter the drain​ field.
To prevent pipe damage, call 811 before you begin any project that would require you to dig. A professional can detect which areas you need to stay away from. Remember, there could be more than just your septic system beneath your land - wires and cables may also run through your property.
A number of factors can cause baffles, lines, and pipes to break or crack, including:
  • Digging in the wrong place
  • Sulfuric acid or rust deterioration
  • Tree-root infiltration
Using a special camera, a contractor should be able to locate the crack or leak and replace the part.
Clogs or backups are usually caused by improper or too-infrequent pumping. Your tank is completely full, and solid waste is being forced through the outlet tee baffle and clogging it. Some signs that you have a clog include:
  • Wastewater backing up in your drains in your home
  • Foul odors in your home
  • Water draining slowly
Preventing septic system failure also involves keeping the drain​ field clear. Never drive or park over the drain​ field, and don't allow livestock to walk over it. Heavy equipment should also be kept away from this area.
