About Our Leach Field Cleaning

A leaching bed is a vital aspect of wastewater treatment and if it is not functioning correctly, the entire field can be affected. One of the leading causes of septic system failure is accumulated sludge in the leach field drainpipes.  When this happens, you will need quality septic drain field cleaning to restore the field.

Through years of designing, installing, troubleshooting, and repairing septic systems, Shankster Bros. has become one of the most trusted experts in the septic system industry in northern Indiana. With this experience, along with continued education on the study of leach fields and the science behind what makes them work or malfunction, our professional installers began to observe and identify some alternative solutions to many of the leach field problems we see.

Few things are as disturbing, or as costly, as having your entire lawn destroyed by the process of having a failed leach field removed and a new one installed. However, with Shankster Bros., we make the leach field repair process easy and affordable.

The Shankster Bros. Septic Drain Field Cleaning Process

We have identified and tested an alternative technique that actually rehabilitates the existing leach field rather than opting for removal and replacement, which is very costly. This technique is far less disruptive to your lawn, and much less costly. It is not the answer to every failed leach field, but our staff can help you determine whether this option may be right for you.

Here is a description of our leach field rehabilitation technique in the words of one of our field technicians:

“We dig up the distribution box and water jet the lines, pull the sludge back into the distribution box and vacuum it out with a septic truck. We then seed the leach lines with bacteria which goes to work on the sludge in the gravel around the pipes. We have a 95% success rate on our rehabs.”

Why Would a Rehab Not Work for You?

A few ways to know if a leach field rehab won’t work include:

  • If your entire yard is wet, you may have a drainage issue other than a sludge issue. A rehab is not what you need.
  • If you have a chamber system instead of a stone and pipe system, a rehab most likely won’t help.
  • If your water usage is higher than your system can handle, a rehab can’t overcome that.
