Saturated Leach Field Checklist

Saturated Leach Field Checklist

Check the toilets for leaks - a simple toilet leak can easily overload your system. Easily test for toilet leaks by removing the lid and putting a generous amount of food coloring into the back of the toilet. Do not flush! Wait approximately 20 minutes and if the food coloring makes it into the bowl of the toilet, this is an indication that the toilet is leaking.
