Septic Drain Field Restoration

Septic drain field restoration can involve steps as simple as adding the right chemical to your septic tank via the toilet or could include more costly solutions such as digging up the entire drain field and replacing the gravel, drainage pipes, d-box, and drain field pipes. The average cost of a new drain field 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. Septi-Flow Shock offers low-cost septic tank treatment products that will, in most cases, solve your septic system problems.



Septi-Flow Shock

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


The typical drain field is fed by gravity from your septic tank into the leach field. Over years of use, the septic drain field can become hardened by chemical sodium build-up from soaps. These soaps come from a variety of sources. The most significant cause of clogged drain fields is sodium build-up in the soil from a washing machine, dishwasher detergents, and 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 more water or bio-nutrients from your septic system. Once the earth locks up, there is little left to do but dig up the drain-field system and install a costly new one.


There is a solution... Septi-Flow Shock. Septi-Flow Shock is not a new product. Its chemical makeup (calcium polysulfide) has been used for over 60 years. It was developed initially by Chevron ORTHO in 1953 and is still in use today. Septi-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 the Septi-Flow Shock 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 one week, add another 1 gallon. Flush freely with water to distribute it throughout the septic system drain field.


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


Start with 5 gallons of Septi-Flow Shock. Use a long wide screwdriver and poke holes about 6-10 inches down, about 1 foot apart, into the soil above the drain field. Apply a minimum of 3-4 gallons of product to the holes you have made. Apply the last 1-2 gallons via the septic tank opening, d-box, or the toilet closest to the septic tank. Try draining as much excess water as possible before treatment for waterlogged systems. 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 field's 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.
