My leach field is 25 or more years old and seems to be clogged. The ground is firm and there is no smell so I believe the leach lines themselves (possibly in addition to the ground) are clogged. I can't replace them due to lakefront restrictions so am stuck with treating the septic as a holding tank. The septic tank was replaced in 2003 and tied into the existing, clogged leach field by the previous owner.
Does anyone have experience with a solution that might work for me? I'd also like to hear if anyone knows of a reputable source that can back up or deny the claims of fixes like (1) the Septic Genie or (2) bacteria/enzyme additives. My septic guy tells me there are no options out there to fix my situation. This advice agrees with much of what I see on the internet that says additives are a waste of time but the sites that sell these things obviously disagree. How can I tell what is truth?

If lines are blocked because of grease, soap deposits or soil then you may want to consider water jetting .. snaking would be totally useless unless it is compacted mud and or roots
