A drain field restoration is a process aimed at rejuvenating and improving the functionality of a septic system’s drain field, also known as a leach field or absorption field. Over time, drain fields may experience issues such as clogging, compaction, or reduced absorption capacity, leading to inefficient wastewater treatment.

Regular maintenance and timely restoration efforts can help address issues early, ensuring the efficient treatment of wastewater and preventing environmental contamination. It’s recommended to consult with professionals for a thorough assessment and appropriate restoration measures tailored to the specific needs of the drain field.

Why Choose Us

Chemical Treatments

Chemical treatments include biological products and Septic-Scrub. Biological treatments do not address the buildup of sulfides in the drain field. These products also can take weeks or months before it is known if the treatment was successful. Septic-Scrub treatments offer several benefits including fast action, proven chemistry, and addressing the chemical imbalance in the drain field.

Mechanical Aeration

A mechanical aeration process can help restore the flow to some drainfields by fracturing the soil to create new drainage paths. Many professionals have found that combining this type of treatment with Septic-Scrub improves this process.


There are times when drain field replacement should be considered. If the drain field is more that 25 or 30 years old, it may have reached its useful life. While a restoration treatment might help for a while, replacement may ultimately be the only practical solution.
