Septic Repair

Air Blasting

Are you experiencing issues with your septic system’s drain field? We understand the frustration and inconvenience that comes with drain field problems, which is why we’re here to offer our specialized air blasting service to get your system back on track.

What is Air Blasting?

Air blasting is a highly effective method for rejuvenating drain fields. Our state-of-the-art device utilizes forced air to target and eliminate clogs and biomat buildup, restoring proper drainage and functionality to your drain field.

Understanding Biomat:

Over time, drain fields can develop a stubborn black tar-like substance known as biomat. This layer prevents water absorption into the ground, leading to drainage issues. Our air blasting service effectively breaks up biomat, allowing water to flow freely through your drain field once again.

Common Causes of Drain Field Issues:

Drain field problems can arise from various factors, including the absence of a baffle wall or tee and filter in older septic tanks, or root penetration in the drain field. Our experienced team is equipped to address these issues with precision and expertise.

How the MHI Process Works

With our specialized device, we use forced air (at 150psi) through a 1” tube to target and eliminate clogs and biomat buildup in your drain field. As we blast, you’ll witness the ground literally lifting, indicating the effective removal of debris. Any dislodged material is then forced back into the septic tank to be pumped out, leaving your drain field clear and functional.

Permit Requirements:

In most cases, our air blasting service does not require a permit from the health department. However, if we discover over saturation or extensive damage during the process, repair permits may be necessary. Rest assured, our team will handle any permit requirements with efficiency and professionalism.

Why Choose MHI Contractors?

We take pride in our work and strive for excellence with every job. Throughout the air blasting process, we monitor key indicators such as the water level in the septic tank and the flow of water throughout the drain field. These visual and auditory cues assure us that our efforts are successful in restoring proper drainage to your system.

With a success rate of approximately 95%, you can trust MHI Contractors to deliver reliable and effective solutions for your septic system needs. Don’t let drain field issues disrupt your life – contact us today and let our expert team restore your system to optimal performance.
