ALL ABOUT DRAINFIELDS
CLICK TO LEARN MORE

Drainfields are designed to distribute the water from the septic tank into a leach field.  The waste water filtrates through a biomat and into the soil.  The soil continues to remove remaining impurities through aerobic digestion. If you see liquid waste on the surface of the drain fields, contact McDonald Septic Services right away.

Regularly scheduled maintenance of commercial kitchen grease traps prevents build up and blockage of sewer lines and drains.

Keep your commercial kitchen running smoothly and your business in compliance with state and local regulations.

ALL ABOUT DRYWELLS
CLICK TO LEARN MORE

Many people are not familiar with drywells.  A drywell is a shaft or chamber constructed in the ground in order to aid drainage.  

Although not as popular as septic systems, drywells still exist and require maintenance. Residential waste water can carry lint, solids, soap, and scum that clog the openings of the well’s walls and the pores of the surrounding soil.

At some point, the build up will prevent water from filtering properly out of the well at an adequate rate.  This prevents proper filtering into the groundwater.  

That’s when most homeowners see the end results; water pooling in the lawn then mold and fungus beginning to form. Standing water can also become a mosquitoes breeding ground.

EXSTING DRYWELLS ARE THE LAST OF THEIR KIND

NEW DRYWELLS ARE NO LONGER PERMITTED

ALL ABOUT PUMP STATIONS
CLICK TO LEARN MORE

Some residential septic systems come equipped with a pump station.  This pump pushes fluid from the septic tank to the leach field when gravity is unable to do the job.

Pump stations can also send sewage from the station to a main sewer pipe. The septic pump station contains a sewage or effluent pump, control floats and a high-water alarm.

Control floats are designed to send a predetermined dosage of effluent to the leach field for balanced absorption throughout the day. But what if a pump station should fail?

The excessive sewage rises in the pump station and signals an alarm. This septic pump station alarm cannot be ignored, as it indicates a failure with either the pump or one of its components.

If your septic pump station should sound its alarm, it is imperative to contact McDonald Septic Service.
