Soil Restoration for Slow Drain Septic Systems

Don’t panic when your septic sewer system fails, because at some point, it will. Whether the problem is the toilet, the drain pipes, the septic tank, or the pipes in the drain field, there are lots of well-established ways to remedy those problems, including soil restoration.


The soil (and gravel, if there is any) in your drain field is the biggest part of the entire system. It’s the end of the process, where the pretreated wastewater (effluent) is finally rendered inert and safe, and enters back into the ecology.

If you’re experiencing a slow drain septic system, your soil might be clogged. When the soil gets clogged up or overly compressed, it can start slowing the septic system down. Thankfully, the soil can be treated and maintained for safe operation—and our soil restoration service can help.

Ironically, the traditional answer to the above question is either to abandon that drain field and build a new one in another spot, or if no other spot is available, to dig up the existing drain field and replace it with all new pipes, gravel, and soil. In other words, until the EarthBuster’s pneumatic soil fracturing technology for soil restoration came along, there was no solution for the soil at all; one just assumed it was hopeless and started over.

This is why the EarthBuster is so important to the septic industry. It makes it possible to fix what was previously assumed unfixable—the absorption soil. And it does it in a profitable and safe way with immediate results—and at considerable savings to the homeowner when compared to replacing or rebuilding a septic drain field.
