Blocked – Broken Pipe Replacement – Langley Septic Repair. Septic Tank To Distribution Box – How to Find The Septic Blockage.
The same failures can occur on the effluent distribution pipe line from the septic tank outlet in to the distribution box …piping from the house to the septic tank. Pipes can settle, break, become blocked or clogged, or become invaded and blocked by tree roots or soils.
How To Determine Where a Septic Blockage or Broken Pipe or Is Located.
How would we distinguish among blockages or broken pipes at different points in these distribution lines?
*Blocked or Broken pipe between house and tank: discover by snaking the line from the house to tank or by observing a back up in the house and, on opening the septic tank access cover, observe poor or no flow into the tank when water is running in the building drains.
*Blocked pipe between tank and D-box; discover by opening the tank and seeing that it is not draining ot when water is being run into it from the building drains, and by opening the D-box to observe poor flow or flow into the D-box when the tank is backing up.
*Blocked leach field lines: discover by excavating at sample points along individual leach lines, often by opening up the line at its lower end. If no effluent is present at the lower end of a leach field line and if effluent is entering that line at the D-box the line is collapsed or blocked along its passage.
Failed leach field: effluent is confirmed as flowing freely from building drains to tank, tank to D-Box, and D-Box attempting to flow into the leach line – perhaps both backing up in the D – Box and also flowing out at the excavated ends of the leach lines.
