My partner and I had a plumbing issue recently, and our drain field started leaking.
- I observed the smell at first.
It smelled like raw sewage being baked in the sunshine… My whole backyard reeked. I thought the problem was with my septic tank and that it needed to be pumped, but so I called a septic corporation and then they informed me the issue was with the drain field, and they pumped the septic but left me with a bigger mess. To repair the drainfield would have cost over 6,000 dollars. My partner has a tractor and thought he could substitute the drainfield himself, however after digging everything up and removing the piping, he was shocked at what a mess it was. Someone installed everything, but nothing was hooked up right! The water was never draining respectfully. After all that time and digging, my partner couldn’t do the repair, we ended up calling a plumbing corporation for a sewer line repair. These people specialized in trenchless plumbing. They could have done a quick patch job or dug right into the earth to repair the issue. I am glad that my friend and I exposed all the troubles and they worked on the sewer line repair. They got all the new piping levels, fixed the distribution box, and put all the dirt back over it. Now the backyard looks as good as new and doesn’t smell bad anymore. The best part is that it costs us less than six grand since my partner did a lot of the prep work. I also believe this sewer line service corporation is a lot more honorableand trustworthy than the first corporation that I called.
