Plumber Arthurs Seat: Septic System Absorption Trench Blockages

Orbit Plumbing do lots of work to septic systems, we have done many new installations in the past and we have done a lot of maintenance work on existing septic systems plumbing products. Our Somerville plumber was called recently about a septic system in Arthurs Seat in the Mornington Peninsula Plumber area that was becoming blocked and required some blockage rectifications done.

Our Plumber Frankston along with our Rosebud Plumber attended the site to investigate the issue’s. They could see that the grass on the ground was very green and lush running down 2 separate lengths of absorption trenches and then all of the sudden the grass was dry and the pipe seemed to come to a stop where as the other lengths continued to have long lush grass.

Orbit Plumbing’s Mornington Plumber explains that this is a great way to see if there is a blockage in your septic absorption trenches especially in winter as the effluent feeds and nourishes the soil and plants around were the trenches are running.

We spoke with the customer about this and we came to the conclusion that it would be a better idea to just dig in those 2 positions rather than using the drain camera in this instance as our expert emergency plumbers where confident of the position of the blockages.

They started digging down, being careful to keep the rock and soil separate because if they dirt finds its way through the rock it could cause more blockages. Sure enough they found the 2 blockages straight away and the decision not to use the camera in this instance saved the customer money which they where very happy about.

Our Plumbers rectified the blocked absorption trench pipes and ran testing on them by running the hose to make sure everything was running smoothly once again, which it was. We carefully back filled the holes and reinstated the ground nicely.
