Cold Weather Creates Its Own Set Of Septic Problems

Septic Preservation Services know that septic problems arise whatever the weather is. However cold weather brings its own set of problems for example:

  • If you have a ‘summer home’ or go away and leave your property for periods of time or just use it part of the week wastewater does not enter the system regularly enough and can freeze
  • If you drive over your septic leach field or drainfield you compact your soil. Compacted soil freezes more easily which can result in damaged parts and possible a failing septic system. If it is snowy and you drive over the snow on your system the snow will then provide less insulation for your septic system than snow which has been left untouched
  • If you don’t have enough vegetative cover over your septic system you have less insulation from the cold
  • Leaks in your plumbing release water into the septic which can then freeze
  • Poor pipe drainage can be caused by deteriorated pipes, if they are full or back filled with soil or poorly installed. Liquid will pool on one side and can then freeze

Essentially the cold can lead to your septic system freezing which leads to problems, possible repairs and even septic failures. Ironically snow falling is a good thing. Fresh snow is an excellent insulator. As it gets compacted it becomes less effective but it is better than a complete lack of snow cover, dry soil conditions or very cold air temperatures for an extended period of time which will all contribute to septic problems. Today we have appointments in Hudson, Stow, Boxborough, Acton, Ayer, Carlisle and North Reading MA for septic repairs, some of which are caused by septic system owners not planning for the cold weather.

Septic Rejuvenation Allows Failed Septic Systems To Rapidly Rejuvenate Extending The Lifespan Of The Drainfield And The Septic System

Septic Preservation Services has an appointment to begin septic rejuvenation today for a client in Berkley MA. Septic Rejuvenation utilizes a patented technology to intermittently aerate the drainfield and surrounding soil. This method is used as an alternative to aerating the wastewater in the septic tank. It allows failed septic systems to rapidly rejuvenate, extending the lifespan of the drainfield and the septic system, while enhancing the treatment process.

Rejuvenation is currently being used by over 2,000 different septic service providers throughout the United States and Canada and has proven successful in a wide range of different climates and soil types. This technology has been applied in residential situations for both single and multi-family dwellings, as well as commercial situations, servicing hotels, laundrymats, grocery stores, food processing facilities, healthcare services, marinas, restaurants and more

Some of the benefits associated with Septic Rejuvenation include:

  • rapid restoration of proper septic system functions
  • lower costs for installation, operation and maintenance
  • enhanced removal of pathogens, nitrogen, phosphorus and B.O.D.
  • minimal damage/disruption to existing property landscape
  • long term, cost-effective solution

This technology has been studied over an extended period of time. Rejuvenation has been proven effective, tested by leading universities, leaders in the septic industry and third-party organizations. The process is simple, yet revolutionary. It is similar to composting and has the ability to rejuvenate septic systems that are severely failed within just a few days.

Other products attempt to rejuvenate septic systems by aerating the wastewater, which is fundamentally limited due to the maximum amount of oxygen that can be added into water. Our rejuvenation technology puts air directly into the clogged biomat and drainfield soils, getting directly to the root of the system failure. This process is much faster than water aeration methods and the treatment is much more thorough as a result.

Septic Preservation Services has applied septic rejuvenation technology to septic system projects that simply could not be rejuvenated using other types of pre-treatment devices, even systems that had been utilizing pre-treatment systems from installation. This process has been shown to increase the hydraulic capacity of the average septic system by as much as two to five times, boosting the efficiency of the affected system. As a result, in most cases as much as 25-75% of the drainfield can be taken out of service, allowed to rest and held in reserve for future use.

Regardless of your type of septic system, from chambers to stone and pipe, drip and everything in between, our rejuvenation technology can help get your system get back on track and running efficiently. The effectiveness of this method has been proven and documented by respected institutions, including Delaware Valley College, Massachusetts Test Center and the University of Rhode Island.
