I have heard of some people doing this when the drainfield starts having problems. Dont make sense to me that it would work because all you do is churn everything up. Its still in there. Any one do this and have any success?

When the leachfield starts to fail, you either have:

1. Ground too saturated from surface water
2. Tank just simply failed
3. Faulty D-box
4. Collapsed pipe

We install a lot of septic systems.

Jeter or terra-lift is the way to do it, unless it root intrusion.

Thats what I thought. Some of these guys here tell people they can get their stopped up drain fields snaked and there is a 75% chance it will work. I never bought into it though.
