Terralift

Many drain fields are exhausted and no longer working properly. Previously, the only solution was to replace the drain field - a very expensive and time consuming project.

Terralift provides a fast solution to the problem. Terralift can be used immediately, even if the drain field is overflowing and covered with water. It takes just a few hours and does not disturb the lawn. There is no digging.

Terralift is a patented system that represents a technological breakthrough in soil restoration. It solves a number of problems with your septic system-including compaction, saturation and improper drainage almost immediately. It does not use chemicals, and will not pollute your property. This revolutionary approach to soil treatment rejuvinates exhausted leach fields quickly without costly excavation and replacement.

 




Terralift uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate soil to depths of three to six feet depending upon the depth of the leach field. it then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate using a special high-pressure compressor creating a network of fissures and cracks which breaks up the biomat that has formed on the walls of the trenches, and loosens compacted soil in the leach field as shown in the animation.

Terralift adds a new dimension to the process buy using a second tank and parallel system that simultaneously allows the injection of air and polystyrene beads into the fissures and cracks that have been opened by the compressed air. This maintains the passages for the percolation of liquids away from the trenches.

Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, both the air and the pellets will move horizontally and vertically upward through the soil.

The pellets keep air and water passages open to ensure proper leaching and transpiration on a long term basis. The operation is repeated every four feet (depending on soil conditions) around each of the leach field trenches.
