I live on a property with high water table and insufficient field lines. With 3 kids we have water running all the time. We developed a wet spot in the yard. 2 different companies came out and assessed that we needed a new leach field. Unfortunately, our property is heavily wooded and running downhill to multiple streams. The only solution was a new lift station to pump material up a hill in the woods so it could drain back down. This was a huge expense.
On a whim I got a case (3 bottles) of the Drainbo Septic Treatment. After the first treatment I did not notice much change. But the instructions said, in my case, to use the product for once a week for 8 weeks. After the second treatment the results were amazing. For the first time in 2 years I walked on this spot in the yard. I mowed without sinking into the stinky mud. There was no stinky mud. There was no messy black mat. After the 3rd treatment the grass has filled in. This spot was about the size of a full size car. It is now invisible. I am amazed! 5 more treatments to go, then on to monthly treatments.
Is this permanent? I don’t know, but at worst I have delayed a huge expense with a $100 investment. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. If you are having a septic nightmare, give Drainbo a try first.
