According to the U.S. EPA, 90% of septic failure happens in the septic system’s drain field. That’s a pretty interesting stat when you consider 99% of the products sold today do very little to solve the largest reason a septic system’s drain field fails: “hardpan soil conditions.” Read on to learn how to fix hardpan soil and save your septic system.
Septic drain field failures started to increase after the Clean Air Act of the 1970s, which reduced sulfur omissions. Sulfur allows sodium to build up in soil, creating “hardpan soil.” A byproduct of hard pan soil is a black, slimy substance called bio-mat. Most septic drain field repair products treat bio-mat, without eliminating the reason the bio-mat formed in the first place.
An agent consisting of liquid gypsum and a bio-stimulant reduces or eliminates both hardpan soil conditions and bio-mat. This will fix hardpan soil and restore your system. We strongly recommend using a septic professional to completely flush your system before adding our Septic Drainer and Bio-Septic Boost. These proven products can then take over from there and keep your system running as it should.
