Your septic drain field, also known as a leach field, is where the septic tank sends liquid waste (effluent) to slowly filter into the ground. Professional maintenance keeps the system from causing foul odors, sewage backups, and other issues.
Need a reliable, experienced, local team to handle that? Mr. Rooter®️ Plumbing offers commercial septic system maintenance, including drain field services, to protect your investment.
Commercial Septic Drain Field Cleaning
Under normal conditions, a septic drain field should not need to be cleaned out. But high effluent levels or abnormal environmental conditions may inhibit the system’s ability to process normally. Plan to have your commercial septic tank pumped yearly; this will help prevent drain field issues. Thorough septic cleaning ensures you don’t have to pay for a premature drain field replacement and your system doesn’t create a health hazard.
Signs you need commercial septic cleaning services include:
- Foul sewage odor—either outside or in your building.
- Slow-draining sinks, showers, and toilets.
- Backed up sewage pipes or drains anywhere on your property.
- Standing water or muddy spots in the lawn near the drain field area.
- Increased need to pump the septic system.
Schedule commercial septic cleaning with Mr. Rooter Plumbing at the first sign of a problem. This will help you avoid a worst-case scenario and prevent costly repairs due to plumbing system and property damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does a septic drain field work?
A septic drain field, also known as a leach field, slowly disburses liquid waste from the septic tank into the soil. The microbial ecosystem in the soil naturally breaks down the waste, making it safe to return to the water table.
Can you clean out a septic drain field?
Yes. You can clean out a septic drain field by clearing the lines after pumping the septic tank or by using specialized equipment to remove buildup and sludge from the field. Professional septic cleaning and maintenance will extend the life of the drain field and septic system.
Do all septic tanks have a drain field?
While there are exceptions, nearly all commercial septic tanks must have a drain field, also known as a leach field. This is the area where the liquid waste from the septic system flows. The soil under the drain field filters out contaminants and impurities.
