Septic Inspection and Well Water Sample Taken in Acushnet MA

Septic Preservation Services often provides septic inspections for customers whose property is not on town sewer. Septic Inspections are required:

  • Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.
  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
  • Any change in the footprint of a building, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
  • For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
  • Every 3 years for shared systems.
  • When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection.

Most regularly we carry out septic inspections for customers who are selling their homes which have a septic system that has not been tested in the last two years. Today in addition to providing the usual septic inspection we are also taking a well water sample for a customer in Acushnet, MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“There are a number of situations where the inspector will not be able to determine if the system passes or fails..A second set of situations involve septic tank and soil absorption systems that are too close to drinking water supplies, drinking water supply tributaries, public and private water supply wells. In these situations, the systems are deemed to be failed unless the Board of Health (in conjunction with the public water supplier in the case of public surface water supplies and their tributaries) determines that the systems are functioning in a manner that protects the public health and safety and the environment. Again, the system inspector can NOT make this evaluation. The information collected during the inspection and the guidance provided by the Department will be used by the Board of Health to make the determination. The system inspector can assist the Board of Health in the case of septic tanks and soil absorption systems located less than 100 feet from a private drinking water well by arranging to have the well tested for fecal coliform bacteria, ammonia, nitrogen, and nitrate nitrogen.”

Septic Repairs Can Sometimes Be Avoided Following Simple Steps

Septic Preservation Services provide advice to their customers to ensure that they use their septic systems correctly and are therefore less likely to have septic system problems. Very importantly to take good care of your septic systems you should know which items should never be flushed down the drain or toilet. This is because these things can overtax or destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system or clog pumps and pipes.

Take care not to flush the following:

  • hair combings, dental floss, disposable diapers, condoms, gauze bandages, sanitary napkins, tampons
  • coffee grounds, kitty litter, fat, grease, oil, cigarette butts, paper towels
  • chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater, such as paints, varnishes, thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides.

Unfortunately we have attended many septic repairs that could have been avoided if this advice had been followed. Today we have septic repairs scheduled in Rochester, Rehoboth, Berkley, Lakeville and Middleboro MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Pumping is Essential

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services can help you ensure that your septic system continues to operate correctly by having your septic tank pumped.  Septic pumping is essential every 3 – 5 years to ensure that your tank does not overflow . As you can imagine, it is not advisable to leave pumping too late because the results can be unpleasant and expensive to fix.  The regularity that your tank needs to be pumped will vary slightly from various factors, including water usage and the size of your tank.  For example, a family with 5 members, including teenagers, will typically use more water, and therefore, need their tank pumped sooner than a home with a retired couple.  However, this too can vary dramatically if that couple have extended family visiting for a prolonged period.  Essentially, if you are unsure, please do call our office, where we will be happy to answer any questions.  Today we are pumping septic systems for customers in Mansfield, Norton, Lakeville, Rochester, Marion, Middleboro, and Carver, MA.  If you need to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
