  • Trailer parks or Mobile Home Parks
  • Schools and religious institutions
  • Office, industrial, and commercial buildings
  • Shopping malls
  • State parks and campgrounds
  • Recreation or vehicle RV parks
  • Highway rest areas
  • Train and bus stations
  • Hotels and restaurants
  • Oilfield Housing

An issue that many RV parks or LCSS system owners encounter is the odor issue.  Many RV drivers, or uninformed septic tank users pour chemicals down their drains, which end up in the RV Park septic tank.  A 15,000 gallon tank with 20 to 30 RVs who are not instructed in proper septic tank use can run into a real problem.  Adding urea to mask the ammonia smell, coming from the LCSS septic system will only hide the problem and not fix the issue.

Often times a loose cap, or a main vent that is too short is the cause, providing visitors to the RV park with clear instructions, including photographs may help your RV visitors change their ways.

Septic Drain Field

What is a Septic Drain Field?

A septic drain field, also can be referred to as a leaching field.  The primary job of the septic-drain-fieldseptic drain field is to filter the effluent from the septic system, once the septic tank has decomposed the waste within.  Different sizes of drain fields are required depending on the capacity of the septic tank and the concurrent rating of the septic tank system.  Practically speaking the higher capacity this septic tank, and did more users per day, the larger the septic drain field will need to be.

Over the course of time a drain field can either deteriorate, by the force of erosion or due to the septic system capacity increasing and the leaching or drain field not increasing in size.  A drain field rated for five users obviously cannot support 20 users without encountering problems during filtering of effluent.  Septic drain field repair is possible and is a problem Big Bexar Septic is experienced with.  If your septic field is marshy or swampy, or you are unable to remove sewer odors even after pumping and cleaning your septic tank, the septic drain field is likely your culprit.

A percolation test of the soil in your proposed or current septic drain field should be performed by an experienced septic tank installer.
