Your septic system no longer works properly. Smelly water seeps up onto the lawn above your leach field when you have company, or do the weekly wash. Sewage might even be backing up in your house. The leach field for your septic tank is exhausted, and badly needs to be repaired or rejuvenated.
Terralift can provide a solution that is fast, effective and relatively inexpensive. In a few hours, years of life can be added to your septic system, without disturbing the turf. Terralift is a patented system that represents a technological breakthrough in soil restoration. It solves a number of problems with your septic system - including compaction, saturation and improper drainage almost immediately. It does not use chemicals, and will not pollute your property.
A Bargain for You
The alternative to Terralift is the installation of a new leach field which is expensive and time consuming. Since heavy equipment is used, work cannot be done until the septic system is dry. Then the area has to be dug up, a new system installed, and the soil replaced; an operation taking a number of days and costing many thousands of dollars.
Terralift, on the other hand, is light enough to be driven on the leach field and used immediately, even if the system is overflowing, and covered with water. It takes just one day, and you will be able to use your plumbing almost as soon as the operation is complete. It will not disturb your lawn. And it will save you thousands of dollars.
Here is How It Works
Terralift uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate soil to depths of three to six feet, or further, depending upon the depth of your leach field. It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate using a special high pressure compressor, creating a network of fissures and cracks which breaks up the biomat that has formed on the walls of the trench, and loosens the compacted soil in the leach field.
Unlike traditional soil fracturing, Terralift adds a new dimension to the process by using a second tank and parallel system that simultaneously allows the injection of air and polystyrene pellets into the fissures and cracks that have been opened by the compressed air. This maintains the passages for the percolation of liquids away from the trench. The operation is repeated every four to six feet (depending on soil conditions) around each of the leach field’s trenches.
Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, both the air and the pellets will move horizontally and vertically through the soil. The pellets keep air and water passages open to ensure proper leaching and transpiration on a long term basis.
The Terralift procedure can also be used for preventative maintenance on a well functioning septic system, as well as to rejuvenate a failing one.
Will Terralift really rejuvenate a leach field?
Yes. If a septic system was designed properly and worked when it was installed, Terralift will bring the field back to its original operating efficiency, barring problems such as overuse, high ground water or mechanical problems such as crushed pipes or missing baffles.
Septic systems fail to operate properly when, over time, the leach field becomes compacted and clogged with an anaerobic bacteria commonly referred to as biomat.
Basically, the field hasn't really failed, it is just clogged. You would not replace your car because the oil filter is clogged.
Terralift can even cure problems that occur because of smearing when the trench walls were originally excavated.
How long will a Terralift treatment last?
Terralift was first used here in Alaska in 1997. In fact, there is one leach field in Birchwood that was Terralifted and hydrojeted in 2000. As of 2009 the leach field was still working fine.
A number of Terralift jobs have been monitored on a monthly basis for two years or more by various government agencies and the systems have continued to function properly.
