Septic Drainfield Restoration

Septic drainfield restoration can involve steps as simple as adding the right chemical tosepticflow-gal.jpg your septic tank via the toilet or could include more costly solutions such as digging up the entire drainfield and replacing the gravel, drainage pipes, d-box, and drainfield pipes. The average cost of a new drainfield is $7,000-$13,000! Most often the remedy lies in a simple shock treatment of your septic tank and in some cases the soil as well.  Septic-Flow Shock offers low-cost septic tank treatment products that will, in most cases, solve your septic system problems.

Septic-Flow Shock

  • Releases Sodium Locked Soil
  • Restores Water Availability to Drainfield
  • Low Cost Compared to a new $7,000 Drainfield

The typical drainfield is fed by gravity from your septic tank into the leachfield. Over years of use the septic drain field can become hardened by chemical sodium build-up from soaps. These soaps come froma variety of sources. The largest cause of clogged drainfields is sodium build-up in the soil from washing machine and dish washer detergents as well as liquid and bar soaps. With thousands of gallons a year pouring into your septic field, that slowly accumulates sodium build-up over time. This causes the soil to harden and not accept any more water or bio-nutrients from your septic system. Once the soil locks up, there is little left to do but dig up the entire drain-field system and install a costly new one.

There is a solution... Septic Flow Shock. Septic-Flow Shock is not a new product. In fact it's chemical make-up (calcium polysulfide) has been in use for over 60 years and was originally deveoped by Chevron ORTHO in 1953 and is still in use today. Septic Flow Shock helps chemically aid in reversing "deadpan" or "hard soil" that forms after years of sodium building up in the soil.


For Slow or Sluggish Drain Fields/Septic Tanks:

Start with 3 gallons of product. Use 1 gallon of product via the toilet, sink or drain closest to the septic tank outlet. Next, if the soil is visibly holding water apply 1 gallon of product into the drain field soil directly. After 1 week add another 1 gallon.. Flush freely with water to distribute it throughout the septic system drainfield.

Restoring a Very Slow or Failed Drain Field or Leach System:

Start with 5 gallons of product. Use a long wide screwdrive and poke holes about 6-10 inches down about 1 foot apart, into the soil above the drain field. Apply minimum of 3-4 gallons of product directly to the holes you have made. Apply the final 1-2 gallons via the septic tank opening, d-box, or the toilet closest to the septic tank. For waterlogged systems, try to drain off as much excess water as possible before treatment. Use a hose and add 40-80 gallons of water to the distribution box with the product to ensure it makes it through the drain fields entire system.  If you can not access the distribution or "D-Box", it may be necessary to add additional product via the toilet or sink.
