Dalton Jodrey Plumbing & Heating Ltd is the only company in Lunenburg County and the surrounding area to provide the Terra Blaster or Terra Lift, a machine used to revitalize disposal fields.
Terra Blasting is a technological breakthrough in soil restoration. It solves a number of soil problems, including compaction, saturation and improper drainage, without disturbing the ground surface. The rate for this service is considerably less than replacing the leach field.
Terra Blasting provides a fast solution to many groundwater problems. It uses a long, narrow probe and an integral pneumatic hammer to penetrate the soil to depths of from 3 to 6 feet.
It then forces air into the soil at a controllable rate, fracturing the soil and creating an aerobic condition.
At the same time, polystyrene pellets are injected into the newly aerated soil, thus maintaining the passages for the percolation of liquid away from the problem area.
Because air tends to follow the path of least resistance, both the air and the pellets will move horizontally and vertically through the soil. The pellets will keep the air and water passages open to ensure proper transpiration on a long-term basis.
