Rain and Potential Impact on Your Drain FieldOnce it appears that winter is giving way to spring in the Puget Sound area, we can expect plenty of rain. Although you may not realize it, this can damage your septic system. When a significant rainfall floods the ground surrounding your drain field, which is a soil absorption area, it becomes saturated. This makes it difficult for water to flow out of your septic system. The trapped water will then flow backward through your plumbing pipes, then your toilets and drains. When drain fields are flooded, untreated sewage can flow into the groundwater and nearby local waterways, potentially causing contamination.

To avoid this messy situation, FloHawks recommends taking several simple steps before, during, and after the rainy season.
