Pumper Magazine: The EarthBuster’s Shot of Air
Aims to Rejuvenate Drainfields

Ken Miller was introduced to the EarthBuster (soil shaker machine a decade ago). At that time, the deep-soil decompactor tool was sold under a different name, but Miller was impressed by the way it restored the septic drain field on the rental property he owned.

“You’re breaking up the biomat and feeding oxygen to it so it can further decompose, and loosening up the soil so that it will percolate like it was designed to do,” Miller says. In addition to treating failing systems, the EarthBuster can be used after a new system has been constructed, Miller says.

Why replace your drain field when it can be restored at a fraction of the cost?

When a septic drain field fails, it’s almost always because the soil–not the septic tank or the drain pipes, but the soil itself–is clogged up and compacted. This keeps the fluids from your septic tank from being able to drain out into the soil like they are supposed to. This makes the septic tank back up, and if the problem is bad enough, raw sewage can back up into your home’s plumbing fixtures.

That’s it. That’s how simple the problem is! EarthBusters know how to restore your septic drain field—tackling the problem right where it starts. They use the state-of-the-art EarthBuster Deep Soil Decompactor machine, a state-of-the-art machine, to safely open pathways underneath your lawn so that your septic system fluids can flow freely again, leaching out and away from your system.

The EarthBuster has a US patent and has been in service for over 10 years. Many of the drain fields treated with the EarthBuster are still operating after all this time and never required a drain field replacement.

Statement from Dig-It Excavating

"Eight years ago we did our first [EarthBuster job], and that’s one’s still for sure working. Most of the systems that we’ve aerated over the years are still working. I think there’s maybe one or two that we had to go back because of the hydraulic load, where the systems just weren’t big enough to handle all the people that were living there, so we had to put in a bigger system. But our oldest one is 8 years, and we’ve had good success."
