We will check for the following symptoms of a failing septic system:

  • Persistent wet areas over the drainfield
  • Sewage surfacing in the area of the septic tank of the D-box
  • Sewage seeping through the foundation
  • Elevated liquid level in drainfield
  • Vegetation over leach field being greener or more lush than rest of yard
  • Sewage odor in yard

We will provide you with guidelines to help you maximize the life of your septic system. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Septic System Services Provided On A Quarterly, Biannual Or Annual Basis

Septic Preservation Services endeavour to educate property owners with septic systems, who are not on town sewer, that having your septic system serviced on a regular basis helps ensure that you will not have any unexpected septic system breakdowns. This is especially important for our commercial customers with restaurants because a problem with their septic system can have large financial repercussions to their business. You will also be increasing the longevity of your septic system which can be an expensive item to replace if it fails. We service our septic system clients on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending to the septic system and usage. For example a busy restaurant will require more frequent services that a customer with a summer property on Cape Cod. Today we have septic system services in Plymouth, Bourne, Acushnet, Lakeville, Middleboro and Taunton MA.

  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives
  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system
  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields
