Hydro Jetting (sometimes called water jetting) can be an inexpensive solution to fix a failing septic field. A high pressure stream of water is injected into the septic line to clear obstructions like grease, hair, paper, sand, silt, and soap build up, and allow for the free flow of sewage through the system. The stream is pressurized to any where from 5,000 for smaller home systems to 35,000 pounds per square inch for larger commercial systems, blasting away grime and debris.
Hydro Jetting is appropriate sometimes more than others. If the header line leading from the house into the outdoor septic lines is clogged, it is a perfect situation for Hydro Jetting! The solid piping can reliably handle the high pressure. On the other hand, if the outdoor septic lines are clogged, Hydro Jetting can potentially do more harm than good! The septic lines that create the septic field are not solid, they are perforated to allow sewage to seep out into the surrounding soil to be naturally filtered and treated.
Sometimes, the high pressure from the water stream can stir up the soil and gravel near the perforations and bring more obstructions into the system. This method can (and should) be used not just as a last effort to save a failing septic system, but as a first effort to prevent trouble.
This type of maintenance will do a lot to minimize build up and blockages that can cause major problems in the future. A little work upfront can save you from a lot of headaches in the future, and septic system headaches are the worst kind! This procedure can be performed by a licensed septic installer or pumper for around one thousand dollars, though prices vary from $800 to more than $1000 depending on location and the size of the system needing cleaning.
