Drain Field Rejuvenation
& Septic Tank System Restoration

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.

…so impressed that my company bought out the patent and took over the manufacturing!

“As a contractor, I continue to be amazed at how quickly the EarthBuster can rejuvenate a septic drain field with long lasting results. Substantial drainage improvement is almost always obvious even before we’ve finished a job. And EarthBuster is not just for septic systems; there are lots of opportunities for solving drainage issues in various situations, such as gravel parking lots and sports fields. I’m thrilled to be able to offer my customers such a cost-effective solution that I know they’ll be satisfied with for years to come. But it’s more than just that; the EarthBuster provides strong profits for the contractor, too—much stronger than a pumper truck. So with the EarthBuster, everybody wins—homeowner and contractor alike. In fact, when I began to realize what a strong solution EarthBuster is for these common problems, I was so impressed that my company bought out the patent and took over the manufacturing!”  November 2015.  K&P Enerprises, LLC

Money back in 10 to 12 jobs.

“I’ve had my EarthBuster for 7 or 8 years.  I think it’s a great value; for what it costs, you can get your money back in 10 to 12 jobs.  I’ve probably done a hundred jobs.  I’m giving people a one-year guarantee—I’m so confident in it.  I just think it’s a great thing.” 18 February 2016

The [home show] response was overwhelming.

"Soon after buying an EarthBuster we demonstrated all the advantages and usages it had at a local home show. The response was overwhelming for septic drain field rejuvenation, drainage improvement and other uses. It is really exciting to have a solution for home owners and small businesses that will save them money, with very minimal disruption to the lawn and landscaping. The only disappointment is the number of people we could have helped if we would have bought the EarthBuster sooner."  28 February 2016.  Common Ground Concepts LLC

13 years…very profitable.

“We’ve had the EarthBuster about 13 years, and it has been very profitable.  We’re able to get a good price for the service while still saving the customer a lot of money.  We’ve had no problems with the jobs we’ve done—even the first EarthBuster jobs we did 13 years ago are still working.  Before we got the EarthBuster, we were doing this job with an earlier machine, back to 20 years ago, and even with those jobs, we have only had to go back on a couple of those jobs.  So we’ve had 20 years of experience doing this type of drainfield restoration work, and the success rate is very high.  We really like the EarthBuster because it’s much faster to use than the older machines, and with our compact track loader’s tracks, we hardly ever do any damage to the lawn.”

Fixed my own drainfield, and then…

“After developing problems with my [own] septic drain-field being waterlogged last year, I discovered [EarthBuster] as a solution.  But there was no one in this half of Montana, and North Dakota that does this.  So after a lot of research, I … bought the equipment to do Earthbusting.  Last November … I decompacted or fracked my drain field and it worked amazingly well.  So then I did Larry Dempsey’s drain field which was in worse shape than mine and again had amazing results.  April 5, 2020.

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."

First EarthBuster job lasted over 5 years!

"I've been talking it up!  I'm very impressed with [EarthBuster].  We had Ken do most of our drainfield [in 2017] except for a section we couldn't get the line locate done for in time.  In the last couple of months, we've had a cesspool forming over part of the area he treated, so we're going to get that line-locate done and have him come back out."

3 years of relief from a troubled system.

"It's a very old and poorly built system--and we're waiting for city sewer to come to our rural neighborhood. Ken did us a lot of good when he came out to loosen up the ground.  Our house was built in 1969, and not up to code at the time--with half the drain field under the garage!  [The EarthBuster rejuvenation job] did well for the first three years before the system started failing again.  I have recommended it, and will again!"

Drainfield’s still going strong after 5 years!

[Our drainfield] used to have some low spots where when we took a shower and did some loads of laundry, you could see the water out in the drain field.  But since [Ken} came and did the EarthBuster, it doesn't do that anymore.  With EarthBuster, you've got nothing to lose.  If you're having trouble with your septic, you've either gotta replace the drain field or try this--and if it works, it's better to try and fail than to not try at all.

Now working perfectly

Barrett did the [EarthBuster] septic lateral line restoration for us and it performed exactly as they claimed. Our system is now working perfectly and this service saved us a lot of money and mess compared to a lateral line replacement. I would recommend their restoration to anyone having similar lateral line drainage issues.

No Problems Since!

"Our septic system was slow to drain into the drain field. When we took showers or used the washing machine too much in a short time, the water would back up in the septic tank and come to the surface of the ground. Then we got in touch with Earthbusters. The next day he came out and worked his magic on the soil. It relieved all the pressure that was in the drain field itself, and we haven’t had a problem since—and it’s been about 6 months now. Now I would recommend it to anybody. It’s safer and less expensive than putting in a new drain field, and it didn’t damage our system. In fact, the EarthBuster is such a good idea that it even made me think about getting one myself to become a service provider!"
