A standard cut down is by far the easiest and most cost effective drainfield available. On this drainfield you remove the topsoil and cut down to course soils then add stone and place piping and replace the dirt on top.


Your drainfield is the most cost effective solution to getting rid of wastewater. But if the septic system is not maintained, just like anything else it will fail.

Installing your Drainfield

Standard cut down


The T trench style drainfield is used when there is sand found very deep and the heavy soil is cut out in a trench and then filled up with sand to allow the wastewater to dissipate. 



This type of drainfield is commonly used in clay or heavy soils, the wastewater is pumped up through pressure lines and is let out to evaporate in the sand that is brought in.




Distribution style

This style drainfield is becoming more commonly used in applications that have nice course soils but don't have gravity from the septic tanks. The sewage is pumped into the distribution box and then gravity fed into the drainfield area.




The first step to installing a drainfield is to get a septic permit. You can acquire a permit by contacting your local county health department, they will then send a health sanitarian out to your location and take some soil samples then determine what type of drainfield you need based on the size of the home and what kind of soils where found.

After the permit has been approved you can start to install your new septic system based on what the permit requirements are for that specific drainfield. Here at All Things Septic we are willing and able to take care of the permit process if the customer would like as well as meet the health sanitarian on the location of the new drain field to better understand what is best for your new septic system.
