Terralift uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate the soil to depths from three to six feet, depending upon the depth of the leach field. It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate fracturing the soil. This creates a network of fissures and cracks which breaks up the biomat that has formed on the walls of the trenches, and loosens compact soil in the leach field.

Terralift adds a new dimension to the process by using a second tank and parallel system that simultaneously injects air and non-biodegradable polystyrene beads into the fissures and cracks that have been opened, thus maintaining the passages for the percolation of liquid away from the trenches.

Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, both the air and the beads will move horizontally and vertically upward through the soil. The beads will keep the air and water passages open to ensure proper leaching and transpiration on a long term basis.

Depending upon soil conditions, the operation is repeated every four to six feet around each of the leach field trenches as indicated in the diagram on the left.
