Septic Advice To Help Prevent Septic Problems

Septic Preservation Services has many years of experience working in the septic industry in this region. This means that we can use our accumulated knowledge and the skills that we have developed to repair the septic problems that our customers have. What is sometimes even more important is that we can locate the cause of the issue and this sometimes means that we have to educate septic system owners in the best way to use their system to prevent septic problems happening in the future. HalloweenFor example today we have been to a customer property in Westport MA and the mistake that they were making is that they were putting too much water into their system. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the septic system, resulting in a variety of problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:

Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons
Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)
Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets
Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)

It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. Trying to spread laundry loads out over a week rather than doing it all on one day helps and not running many water using appliances all at once. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The Energy Star website also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage. It is always a good idea to remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system. We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Marion, Mattapoisett, Fall River and Fairhaven MA. If you have questions about your septic system or if you need to schedule a septic repair please do contact our Norton Office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
where we will be happy to help you.

Title 5 Inspections Provided To Customers in Norton and Surrounding Towns

pump chamberSeptic Preservation Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Norton, Mansfield, Attleboro and Wrentham MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see the Mass Gov Website.

Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or title 5 inspections please do contact us on at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Today we have a septic system design meeting with a customer in Westport MA. Our client is renovating an older home which needs a new septic system. Rather than working with an old, inefficient system they have chosen to replace that system with an entirely new, efficient and cost effective septic system which we are providing the septic system design for. We have recently provided other septic designs for customers with properties in Oxford, Clinton and Holliston MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

You May Need Septic Pumping Following A Busy Holiday Season

Septic Preservation Services know that most people are all done with the holidays and are cleaning up, putting away and taking down all of their holiday items. What many people do not think of is that their septic system may need some maintenance after the holidays too. Having your septic system pumped regularly is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system treats effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and your system will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. If you have had a lot of extra guests using your home over the holiday period you may be due for septic pumping earlier than expected. We are providing septic pumping to customers today in North Smithfield, Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield and Burrillville RI. So if you are due for a septic pumping or if you are unsure if you need one please do contact us at our office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule an appointment if necessary on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Our Septic Preventative Maintenance Program Makes Septic System Ownership Easy

Septic Preservation Services know that many people when they hear the word ‘sewer’ either think of old, large, dank, dark and smelly sewer systems under some city in Europe or adolescent turtles with unlikely names fighting bad guys through the sewer tunnel system. Neither image is particularly accurate for sewer systems in Massachusetts which service many homes across the state. However homes and properties that are not on the town sewer system still need to process their wastewater and the solution is an individual septic system. If you buy a property with a septic system and have never had one before this can be a daunting prospect. However Septic Preservation Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program is designed to give homeowners peace of mind because you then know that your system is being properly checked, maintained and monitored and owning a septic system is no longer the concern that it may have been. This means that you do not have to worry about unexpected repairs or maintenance because we will take care of your septic system so septic repairs are much less likely to be necessary and problems will be located before they become a big concern. We schedule septic services for our customers on maintenance contracts on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the use that it gets. Today we have septic service appointments in Norton, Berkley, Dighton, East Bridgewater and Taunton MA. If you would be interested in our preventative maintenance program or if you have questions about septic services please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Services Can Help Prevent Septic Problems Over the Holidays

Septic Preservation Services know from many years experience within the septic industry that if you have septic services on a regular basis you are helping prevent unexpected septic system breakdowns. This is especially reassuring in the holiday season when nobody wants to be having to deal with a septic failure. In addition to having the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are maintaining your septic system you are also actually increasing the longevity of your septic system which will be an expensive item to replace if it fails. We provide septic services clients on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending to the septic system and usage. For example a restaurant will require more frequent services that a customer with a summer cottage on that is only used seasonally. We service septic systems all over New England from Maine in the north to Rhode Island in the south and western Massachusetts to Cape Cod.
