Happy Columbus Day!

Septic Preservation Services says Happy Columbus Day! Today is the official anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492. Thankfully septic systems have evolved from the times when human waste was thrown out of a window or let out into the local water system. However if your septic system ceases to function correctly and fails the same diseases that threatened our ancestors are still a concern. As stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems poses a significant threat to drinking water and human health because diseases and infections may be transferred to people and animals directly and immediately. Dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, and acute gastrointestinal illness are some of the more serious examples. Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems is the most frequently reported cause of groundwater contamination.”

Therefore if you have a concern that your septic system is not working correctly, for example you can smell sewage, there is puddling in your yard or you are having backups in your home it is always wise to seek professional help as soon as possible. A small easily fixed problem can rapidly become a large and expensive repair if left to get worse. Today we are at customer locations in Raynham, Bridgewater, Taunton, Middleboro, Lakeville and Norton MA carrying out septic system repairs including septic pump repairs and leach field repairs. If you need advice or wish to make an appointment please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

When Is a Title 5 Septic Inspection Necessary?

Septic Preservation Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections today in Berkley, Dighton, Bridgewater, Taunton, Norton and Rochester, MA. As stated on the Official website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for Massachusetts:

“Septic system inspections are required
Within 2 years prior to the sale of the property. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months after the sale.
When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit. This does not mean an inspection is required every time a building permit is needed – only when the use of the facility changes (e.g., from residential to commercial) or when a facility expands (e.g., adding a bedroom, enlarging the square footage of an office building, or adding seats to a restaurant).
Unless official records showing location of the system components are available, any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection, 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.”

If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Keeping Your Septic System Clean and Healthy is the Best Way to Avoid Costly Repairs

 

Septic Preservation Services knows that keeping your septic system clean and healthy is the best way to avoid costly repairs to your septic system, be it a septic tank, cesspool or some other style system. Septic Preservation Services helps to ensure your system remains as healthy as possible through periodic  pumping and system checks. When we pump your septic tank our professionally trained staff is there to identify potential issues before they become big problems! To prevent problems, we ensure the solids in your system are cleared out and remain at a level consistent with a healthy system. We also check and clear filters if one is present to be sure it doesn’t let any solids into the soil absorption system.

The health of the system can be improved through addition of bacteria products to your system by our professional staff. These bacteria help break down the organic solids in your tank which reduces buildup over time, reduces odors and keeps your pipes clean. With proper maintenance these additives can ensure the success and health of your system.

Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Fairhaven, Fall River, Acushnet, Freetown, Marion and Mattapoisett MA. If you would be interested in septic pumping or if you have any questions about septic pumping or your septic system please do contact our Norton office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

garbage disposals

Garbage Disposals and Your Septic System

garbage disposals

 

Garbage Disposals are used in many households, but are they safe to use with your septic system.  Good Question!

While many companies that sell garbage disposals will tell you they are fine to use with a septic system, the truth is they really aren’t.

You really shouldn’t be using a garbage disposal with your septic system.  The way that the septic system is set up involves a large tank filled with water and the waste from your home.  The solid waste settles to the bottom where bacteria go to work breaking it down.  Then, there is the water waste layer that has the excess liquid going out to the drain field.  Finally, at the top, there is a layer of scum that has built up.

In order to keep your septic system running smoothly, there are many items that should not be flushed or sent down the drains.  This includes, diapers, wipes, bleach, harsh chemicals and sanitary products to name a few.    The same is true with your garbage disposal.  All the fats, grease, and other waste from the disposal are being added to the septic tank which can can cause problems and clogs and prevent it from working correctly.

Basically, you are overloading the waste that is being put into your septic tank and the naturally occurring bacteria will not be able to keep up with breaking it down.  If you use a garbage disposal, you should have your tank pumped every year, rather than the normal 3-5 year range.  It can wreak havoc with your septic system.

A better idea? Compost.  Composting your kitchen waste is much better for your system and environmentally friendly.  You can buy a cheap plastic composter or even make your own.  Depending on the size, you can add all your kitchen waste as well as leaves and grass and have a great fertilizer ready for your garden or landscaping.

It’s a win win situation for your yard as well as your septic system.  

Visit www.septicpreservation.com for all your septic system questions.  They have a qualified staff ready to help you with all your septic needs from pumping and cleaning to design and installation.  Give them a call at 877-378-4279.
