    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

   trenches.

     

                                              

 

    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

    basis.

    The operation is repeated every four to six feet depending upon soil conditions,

    around each of the leach field trenches as indicated in the diagram above.

   Replacing your septic system or excavating your leach field can cost between

   $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.
