Terralift: The Most Effective Solution For Repairing Your Septic System

Maintaining a healthy septic system is crucial for the proper functioning of your home or business’s wastewater disposal. Over time, septic systems may encounter issues such as clogged drain fields, soil compaction, and drainage problems, leading to foul odors, sewage backups, and potential environmental contamination. When faced with these problems, property owners often seek innovative solutions to restore their septic systems to optimal performance. One such groundbreaking technique is the use of TerraLift.

Understanding TerraLift

TerraLift is a revolutionary technique that offers an alternative to traditional septic system repairs. It is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method that rejuvenates clogged or failing drain fields without requiring extensive digging or system replacement. The process involves using a specialized machine to penetrate the ground and inject a mixture of air, water, and soil-restoring additives into the affected areas, resolving drainage issues and restoring the soil’s natural ability to filter and treat wastewater.

The Benefits of TerraLift


Traditional septic system repairs can be expensive, involving excavation, replacing drain field pipes, or even installing an entirely new system. TerraLift, on the other hand, is often more affordable since it focuses on restoring the existing drain field without the need for significant replacements or construction.

Minimal Disruption

Repairing septic systems traditionally involves extensive digging and disruption to your yard, landscaping, and sometimes even driveways or patios. TerraLift eliminates the need for such disruptive excavation, as it only requires small access points for the specialized equipment. This means less mess and a quicker restoration process.

Environmentally Friendly

TerraLift is an eco-conscious solution that promotes sustainability. Restoring the natural filtration capabilities of the soil allows wastewater to be properly treated and filtered, minimizing the risk of contamination and protecting groundwater sources. Additionally, TerraLift avoids the need to replace or construct new drain fields, reducing the consumption of raw materials.

Long-Lasting Results

When performed correctly, TerraLift can provide long-lasting benefits for your septic system. Improving soil structure and resolving drainage issues helps prevent future problems by extending the life of your drain field and the septic system overall.

How Does the TerraLift Process Work?

Step 1: Drain Field Assessment

A Septic Check professional technician will inspect your drain field and assess its condition. They will determine whether TerraLift is a suitable solution for your specific situation.

Step 2: TerraLift Equipment Setup

Your technician will bring specialized TerraLift equipment to your property. This equipment typically includes a soil probe, an air compressor, and a mixture of water and soil additives.

Step 3: Soil Aeration

The technician inserts the soil probe into the ground, reaching the clogged or compacted areas of the drain field. Using controlled bursts of air and water, they aerate the soil, loosening compacted layers and creating channels for improved drainage.

Step 4: Soil Restoration

Once the soil is aerated, the technician introduces a mixture of water and soil additives into the ground. These additives help restore the soil’s natural structure, promoting better filtration and absorption of wastewater.

Step 5: Monitoring and Post-Treatment Care

After completing the TerraLift process, the technician will monitor the system’s performance and provide guidance on proper maintenance. Regular septic system maintenance, including regular pumping, will help ensure the longevity and efficiency of your newly repaired system.

TerraLift presents a game-changing solution for property owners experiencing septic system issues. By using a combination of air, water, and soil additives, this innovative technique rejuvenates drain fields, resolves drainage problems, and prevents the headache of having your yard torn up for a septic repair.
