Thanks fellas. This is new construction so I will be diligent about tank/field maintenance when the time comes. The field sets on the highest spot of the 1.5 acres we have. Yes it is on our property. It seems very sandy "up there" according to perk test. Being that it is on a high spot, I dont anticipate having problems with oversaturation. If so, I guess I change a nozzle or two and squeeze down the amount of water being delivered. Sound OK?

I think it depends on the soil type in that area. I dont think you can say "Dont water on a septic field" as there are always exceptions. I think the main reason septic fields fail over time is because people dont get the septic tank pumped enough and the sludge gets out into the field and clogs the piping. I can also see that if a person lives in a swampy area or has soil that does not "perk" well that adding additional water is not a smart idea. I have very sandy soil and I am not concerned at all about my drain feild, therefore I irrigate it. Also a tank should be pumped at least every 5 years.

septic fields

I was told, by the well and septic contractor, NOT to sprinkle on top of a septic field. Saturation could limit the fields effectiveness and shorten the life of the field. Fact or fiction?
