Septic Cleaning in Addition To Septic Pumping Helps Your Septic System Work Correctly

Septic Preservation Services understand that part of any good septic system preventative maintenance program is to ensure that it is properly cleaned and pumped on a regular basis However it is also important to know the facts about septic cleaning and pumping to avoid making costly mistakes. Inside your septic tank solid waste matter sinks to the bottom and grease and oils float to the top. Treated liquid waste flows through pipes into a drain field or leach field. If too much solid waste accumulates it clogs the drain pipes, prevents liquids from escaping, and leads to sewage backups into your home and a health hazard because waste is not treated before exiting your septic system. A properly maintained septic system should only have a septic pump out every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. Septic pumping will ensure that your septic system does not ‘fill up’ with waste. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. It is important to understand that septic pumping does not always mean that your system will also be cleaned and leaving solid buildup in the septic tank or not having your leach field pipes jetted can mean that even if your system is pumped blockages can still occur which can result in septic system failures and potentially unpleasant, expensive and harmful repercussions. Today we have septic cleaning appointments in Berlin, Clinton, Bolton, Marlborough, Sterling and Grafton MA. If you are interested in septic cleaning or septic pumping or have any questions about the process please do contact our office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Do You Know Why A D-Box Replacement Is Essential If Yours Is Not Working Correctly?

Septic Preservation Services know that most people would not know what all the parts of a septic system are, let alone what they do, even if they have a septic system servicing their own property. And that is perfectly normal, especially if you have a company such as Septic Preservation Services to rely upon to give you septic support when you need it. Today we have a D-Box replacement scheduled for a customer in Hingham MA. This is an essential septic repair because your D-Box is a very important part of your septic system. The D-Box is not there to support an A, B and C Box as we have been asked before. D-Box stands for ‘Distribution Box’ and does exactly what you might expect. The distribution box is a component of the leach field system. The job of the distribution box is to evenly distribute the wastewater into the leach field (also known as the drain field). How does the septic distribution box work? Gravity plays a major role in helping the distribution box do its job. The water flows downhill where the distribution box is placed. This allows the water to flow into the box from the septic tank and then onto the leach field. Once the wastewater flows out of the septic tank it will move into the septic distribution box and out to the leach field lines. The size and shape of the box depends on the type of septic tank you have. A distribution box is most commonly made out of concrete or plastic and has several openings for the leach field lines where the wastewater can flow out. The distribution box is a major part of the septic system and it being able to function properly is very important. If the distribution box isn’t working correctly you will soon be dealing with leach field failure. Distribution boxes are most often worn down by time due to weather, like flooding and freezing, and improper care of the septic system. We will be able to provide a D-box replacement for our client before it caused any lasting damage to their leach field. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, Marshfield, Hanover and Hanson MA.

design and installation

Leach Field Repair with the Installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a property owner in Attleboro MA who has a leach field problem which has been caused by it becoming clogged with the excessive amount of organic matter that has been passed to it from their septic tank. We will repair their leach field without needing to replace it with the installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator.

In nature, oxygen-using (aerobic) bacteria in the soil consume non-living organic material. This is the process nature uses to “recycle” wastes. We install the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in the septic tank to create an oxygen rich environment and cultivate an extensive colony of these same soil bacteria.

The result is nearly complete consumption of the organic materials entering the septic tank. At the same time, the bacteria are carried into the leach field where they consume the organic material that has accumulated in the underlying soil. The leach field regains and/or maintains its capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator includes:

  • An installation costs thousands of dollars less than that of a replacement leach field
  • Minimal disruption to existing landscape
  • Protection of the environment
  • Significantly longer tank pumping interval
  • Conservation of natural resources
  • 100% component and limited lifetime performance warranty

We have other septic repairs also scheduled today in Norton, Mansfield, Stoughton, Sharon, Canton and Foxboro MA.

If you want to have a White Knight Septic Installation, need a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Repairs Including a Sewage Grinder Pump Repair

Septic Preservation Services have septic repairs including a sewage grinder pump repair today in Sturbridge, Oxford, Brimfield, Brookfield, Dudley, Uxbridge and Millbury MA. As with all parts of your septic system your sewage grinder pump is an essential part of your septic system. Waste from water-using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines, etc.) flows through your home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry and pump it to the central sewer system or septic tank. A sewage grinder pump does what the name suggests and is not something that you want to leave inoperative because more serious breakdowns and larger repairs may then be necessary. If you require a septic repair for any part of your septic system including the septic tank, leach field or drain field, distribution box or septic pump or if you have concerns about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services where we will be happy to answer any questions you have and book an appointment if necessary.

Fall Planting Can Result in a Leach Field Repair Being Necessary

Septic Preservation Services know that in the fall many people are out raking leaves, pruning and generally getting their yards ready for winter. What most non gardeners do not realize is that for many tree varieties late August, September and October are also the best months to plant them. In fall, the tree can make new roots without having to feed the leaves. Water requirements are much lower without the leaves on the tree. To us it feels cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth. Roots grow best in cool soil. A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again early spring before leaves develop. This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves. Unfortunately when you are planting large shrubs or trees in your yard if you do so on your leach field you can unknowingly create a septic problem. The roots and sometimes weight of plants can actually damage your drain field which means that your septic system is no longer working correctly and you may need a leach field repair. Septic systems do an amazing job of returning liquids to the soil for purification but the whole system needs to be functioning correctly for this to happen. When septic system failure occurs, the conditions they create are dangerous. These can include:

Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
Health hazards to children and pets
Noxious odors over large areas
Polluted streams and ponds
Sewage back-up in buildings
Contaminated wells
Breeding areas for mosquitoes

Today we are at a customer’s home in Portsmouth RI proving a leach field repair which has been damaged when they planed an orchard over it last year. The roots combined with heavy machinery being parked on to of the drainfield during construction have both lead to structural collapse of the leach field piping. A strong sewage odor and dampness over their yard was luckily a sign of a septic problem that the homeowners did not ignore. We can repair the damage so they do not have to worry about the consequences of an inoperative septic system. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in North Kingstown, Jamestown, Narragansett, Exeter and Richmond RI.

One problem is often created by property owners being unaware of the location of their leach field or drain field or not understanding the importance of its part in their septic system. They then park or drive vehicles over it causing damage. Your drain field and its associated piping are not built to sustain weight and can become easily damaged by vehicles parking on them. Even if the vehicle does not collapse the system, it can compact the soil causing drain field problems. Today we are providing a leach field septic repair for a property owner in Rochester who unknowingly damaged their system by allowing parking on their leach field during a party. We have other septic repairs today in Carver, Marion, Bourne, Middleboro and Plymouth MA. If you are concerned that your septic system is not operating as it should or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Repair Appointments Scheduled Today In Maine

Septic Preservation Services know that although there are many types of septic systems in use today they are all designed for each site and mostly work on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield, all connected by pipes, called conveyance lines. Your home’s wastewater flows into your septic tank where it is held and solids sink to the bottom and lighter scum floats to the top. The solids and scum are decomposed by bacteria and periodically pumped. The treated wastewater or effluent flows through the distribution box into your drainfield or leach field where it then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified (secondary treatment). A properly functioning septic system does not pollute the groundwater. However a failing septic system can have many unpleasant repercussions such as:

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
  • reduce the value of your property,
  • be very expensive to repair,
  • put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.”

Therefore if you suspect your septic system is not operating correctly or you have concerns about your system do not put off contacting a professional. Today we have septic repair appointments in Kennebunk, Cape Elizabeth, Biddeford, Arundel, Kennebunk Port and Old Orchard Beach ME.
