We use a machine called the Terralift™. The Terralift™ probe is inserted into the
ground down to the bottom of the leach field trenches. With a blast of compressed
air, it creates a series of fissures and cracks in the leach field that loosens the
compacted soil and breaks up the bio-mat that has formed on the walls of the
At the same time, Terralift™ injects polystyrene beads into the fissures that have
been opened to provide long term percolation of liquids away from the trenches.
Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, both the air and the
beads will move horizontally and vertically upward through the soil. The beads will
keep the air and water passages open to ensure proper leaching on a long term
around each of the leach field trenches as
indicated in the diagram above.
$7,500 and $15,000. Terralift™ is a more affordable option, typically around
$3,000. Excavation takes a tremendous amount of time, requires digging up the
entire field, destroys existing turf cover, and releases a foul smell into the entire
area. By contrast, a Terralift™ treatment can restore a clogged leach field in less
than a day, even if the field is covered with water.
