The Problem
Your septic system no longer works properly. Smelly water seeps up on to the lawn above your leach field when you have company, or do the weekly wash. Sewage might even be backing up in your house. The leach field for your septic tank is exhausted, and badly needs to be repaired or rejuvenated.

The Solution
Terralift can provide a solution that is fast, effective. and relatively inexpensive. In a few hours, years of life can be added to your septic system, without disturbing the turf. 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.

A Bargain for You
The alternative to Terralift is the installation of a new leach field which is expensive and time consuming. Since heavy equipment is used, work cannot be done until the area above the septic system is dry. Then the area has to be dug up, a new system installed, and the soil replaced - an operation taking a number of days and costing many thousands of dollars.

Terralift, on the other hand, is light enough to be driven on to the leach field and used immediately - even if the system is overflowing, and covered with water. It takes just one day. And you will be able to use your plumbing almost as soon as the operation is complete. It will not disturb your lawn. And you will be able to use your plumbing almost as soon as the operation is complete. It will not disturb your lawn. And it could save you thousands of dollars.

Here is How It Works
Terralift uses a long, narrow probe and an integral 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 above.

Terralift adds a new dimension to the process by using a second tank and parallel system that simultaneously allows the injection of air and polystyrene pellets into the fissures 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 the pellets will move horizontally and vertically upward though 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 to six feet, depending on soil conditions, around each of the leach field trenches as indicated in the diagram below.

Satisfied Customers:

I am pleased to report that the drainage work performed with your Terralift machine at the high school football field greatly improved the puddling problem we have had in the area where the work was done.
We appreciate the fact that the work was done quickly and neatly, improving the drainage without excavation and expensive regrading of our football field.

For 2 years I had watched my yard become wetter each week. The smell became very apparant and foul, and I knew costly repairs were needed to fix the drainfield.
I weighed all the options. The fracture [Terralift] process was the quickest, least expensive and without any of the necessary health permits required for the installation of new drainfield lines. The dealer is sold on this process and so am I. It has been approximately 12 months with no problems whatsoever.

Homeowners Comment on Terralift

We were told that we needed a new septic system that would take days to finish, would be very messy, and cost over ten thousand dollars. When we heard about Terralift, at first we were skeptical, but after hearing your warranty, we decided to give it a try. You completed the process in just one day with no mess and our septic system is now working just fine.

Last year, I was faced with clogged septic tank field lines and compacted soil, which was causing raw sewage to surface in my yard. With the Terralift machine, the sewage problems were solved immediately with no adverse effects to the surrounding turf.
Bonnie Farnell Brooks, Mobile, Alabama

Then last year, the rain water again entered our home though our washing machine pipe which would not allow us to flush out toilets, wash our clothes,ect. The water laid in our back yard like a swamp.
We could actually watch water flow though our yard like a creek which happened about every time we had hard rains.
We decided to have you try the Terralift machine on our back yard. Since the Terralift machine work was performed last year on our yard, we have not had any problems. The water has not entered into our washing machine pipe nor has it overflowed out septic tank. Our backyard has been able to absorb the hard rains we have received since the work was done.
This machine is remarkable. It is a miracle worker and so are you!
Cynthia E. Webster, Madison Heights, Virgina

just wanted to let you know of the great results we have has since you blasted around out field lines. We are no longer having any trouble with our septic system, where we were having continuous problems, and thought we would have to have another field installed. Your machine and the blasting procedure really works and also saved us a good bit of money. Thanks again, we are grateful.
Alan McDonald, Perrysburg, Ohio

I am happy to tell you that the Terralift drainage and decompaction services that you provided around my leach field last fall has had an immediate impact on the flow though the system. To date I have had no further back-ups.
I also appreciated that you were able to perform the service for a very reasonable cost and without having to excavate my backyard.
