Terralift & Drain Cleaning in Charlottesville, VA, and the Surrounding Areas

Speedy Rooter Plumbing Services VA

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 or terrains where septic repairs can be challenging, as in athletic fields. Terralift rejuvenates exhausted leach fields quickly without costly excavation and replacement. If you’re looking for a plumber in Charlottesville, VA that can utilize this method to its full potential, Speedy Rooter is the company to trust.


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 break up the biomass that has formed on the walls of the trenches and loosens the compacted soil in the drain field.

We offer our drain cleaning services to the following locations:

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.

When it comes to drain cleaning in Charlottesville, VA, trust only the experts at Speedy Rooter. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment. We look forward to serving you!
