Drain Cleaning


Do you have drain field problems?

Until recently, the only solutions for failing septic systems were very expensive and time-consuming—and they required excavating your lawn. We offer drain cleaning and drain field restoration for Charlottesville, VA residents at a fraction of the cost of installing a new one.

The Terralift procedure—environmentally safe and long-lasting—will reduce your costs and give new life to your septic system—in one day—without the use of chemicals and without polluting your property or disturbing your lawn!

The Terralift procedure is ideal for use in areas where water is a problem, like athletic fields. Terralift rejuvenates exhausted leach fields quickly without costly excavation and replacement, providing a fast solution to many groundwater problems.

Terralift uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate the soil to depths of three to six feet, depending upon the depth of your drain field. It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate, creating an anaerobic condition using a special high-pressure compressor. This creates a network of fissures and cracks which breaks up the biomass that has formed on the walls of the trenches and loosens the compacted soil in the drain field.

The Terralift procedure injects polystyrene pellets into the newly aerated soil, thus maintaining the passages for the percolation of liquid away from the problem area. The pellets will keep the air and water passages open to ensure proper transpiration on a long-term basis. The operation is repeated every four feet—depending on soil conditions—around each of the leach field trenches.

Drain Field Restoration

How do you clean a drain field?

We start each drain field restoration in Charlottesville, VA by having the septic tank pumped and cleaned so our plumbers can know the condition of the tank and baffles. We then locate the drain field and hydro jet the lines. In many cases, this process is all you need to get the drain field working again. If the drain field is not accepting fluid after the cleaning, the Terralift procedure is recommended.

Is the Terralift a short-term fix?

Not at all! With proper care and upkeep of a septic system, it should last as long (if not longer) than it already has.

What is your guarantee?

We guarantee that the soils around the drain field lines will accept fluid for a period of one full year. If it slows down or stops within the year, we will redo the procedure or return your fee.

Is the Terralift procedure expensive?

Not when you compare it to the expensive and time-consuming installation of a new drain field. Terralift is light enough to be driven on the drain field and used immediately, even if the system is overflowing and covered with water. It takes just one day and you will be able to use your plumbing almost as soon as the operation is complete. It will not disturb your lawn and it can save you thousands of dollars!

Septic Tank Cleaning

Maintain the Health of your Septic Tank

At Speedy Rooter, we pump commercial and household septic tanks as well as commercial grease traps if they stop functioning.

Tips for Septic Tank Treatment

Normal amounts of detergents, kitchen wastes, laundry wastes, and household chemicals do not affect the proper operation of household sewage treatment systems. However, excessive quantities can be harmful.

Avoid the disposal of cigarette butts, disposable diapers, sanitary napkins, etc. into your household sewage system. These items do not readily decompose.

Do not plant trees around your leach field. Roots from trees in the immediate area of the absorption lines may clog the system.

The contents of the septic tank should be pumped every five years or when the total depth of sludge and scum exceeds one-third of the liquid depth of the tank.

Septic Tank Pumping

Septic Tank Cleaning and Health Maintenance

Whether you have a backed up septic tank or you’re due for a regular tank pumping, Speedy Rooter is a full-service plumbing company that pumps commercial and household septic tanks. Septic tanks are installed in homes and businesses that are not in direct connection with city sewer pipes. Because septic tanks fill up over time, it is recommended that they be pumped every 2-3 years to keep them clean, functioning, and sanitary.

Here at Speedy Rooter, we guarantee that your septic tank service will be done efficiently and the end result will be a clean and waste free septic tank. The following are tips to understand when owning a septic system:

Signs Of Septic Tank Problems

There are multiple signs of the need for septic service or that your tank is full and ready to be pumped. Backed up toilets and drains are a common sign of a full tank, as well as any foul and unpleasant smells that accompany this. If the soil become soft around the tank area, this may also be a warning sign that you need a pumping.
