If you have a septic system that helps to deal with the wastes that are produced in your home, then you also have a leach field. The leach field is an underground series of trenches that allows water waste to seep out and drain into your lawn. Leach fields are not often considered by homeowners until a problem occurs. However, you should always try to keep the leach field in great shape.
Your septic system requires a lot of care and maintenance to ensure it is working as it should. If the waste doesn't break down as it should or it is not cared for, waste can back up into your yard or a clog can develop, causing waste to flow back into your home. While there are many chemical cleaners you can use to maintain your septic system, these can be harmful.
