White Knight

White Knight Advantage System

White Knight Septic Preservation Services were approached by a property owner in Attleboro, MA whose leach field was failing and wanted a solution. We will restore the function of the drain field with the White Knight system.

 

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™ ADVANTAGE 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 successfully used this system throughout the region from Groveland in Northern MA to Otis in Western MA to Chatham on Cape Cod.  The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator can be used to:

 

  • Improve the function of marginally operating drainfields
  • Restore the function of totally failed drainfields
  • Improve the quality of effluent returning to the soil and ground water
  • Reduce the amount of nitrate moving into the environment
  • Reduce the size of a leach field required for new building construction
  • Expand the size of existing structures without expanding the leach field

septic repair

Septic First Maintenance Inspections in Rhode Island

Rhode Island Septic Preservation Services has licensed septic inspectors who are carrying out Septic First Maintenance Inspections in Portsmouth, Tiverton, Cranston, North Kingstown, and Exeter, RI today.  The purpose of a First Maintenance Septic Inspection is to establish what type of septic system you have, if the system poses any risk to public health, if there is any risk to the environment, and determine if any immediate corrective actions should be taken. In  some towns, for example Portsmouth RI:

 

“First Maintenance Inspections (FMIs) and pump outs are required for all Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems upon notification by the town.  If you receive a letter requiring a FMI and you have had an inspection performed in the previous year, simply file that inspection report with the town – to fulfill this requirement.  All FMIs will have to be completed within 60 days of notification.

 

Alternative/Experimental OWTS will not be required to have FMIs – only proof of a maintenance contract and annual servicing.”  For more information see the town website –

https://www.portsmouthri.com/419/Wastewater-Management

 

The town also provides a list of licensed inspectors.  In Portsmouth, Septic Preservation Services have five registered inspectors listed which is is the most of any company on that list.

drain field

Soil and Your Septic System

drain fieldDrainfield Soil

 Soil plays a major part in the proper functioning of a septic system. Many people do not realize what an important role the type of soil can make in your drainfield. Soil failure can be  a major cause of septic system failure.

 Soil works as a fine filter, and is the home to trillions of microscopic organisms that feed on organic matter in the effluent from the drainfield.

Soil Types

The texture of the soil  determines how quickly wastewater will be absorbed in the drainfield.  Soil percolation is the ability of the soil to absorb water.  The best types of soil for drainage or percolation contain a balance of coarse and fine particles. 

Gravel, or soil with a coarse texture, or coarse sand may not be adequate.  They allow wastewater to pass too quickly to provide adequate treatment. These types of soils work only if they are deep. Soil may be brought in for septic systems and drainfields when the current soil is inadequate.

Clay Soil

Some soil mixtures may contain some particles of clay. Clay soil can be used in drainfields, but water moves through it much slower than in gravel or coarse textured soil. The problem with clay particles is that they can swell and block soil passages.  This slows the movement of wastewater even more.  If clay particles  electronically bond to sodium molecules contained in wastewater, hardpan can occur.  The passage of wastewater is totally blocked and this can lead to septic failure. Hardpan conditions in clay soil can be chemically treated.  There are some products on the market to treat this condition.

Since soil plays such a critical part in the life of your septic system, it’s best to leave it up to the experts.  Call Septic Preservation Services at 877-378-4279 for all your septic needs and questions.  Ask them about their septic system maintenance program.  Or visit  www.septicpreservation.com

Regular Septic Pumping by Septic Preservation

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services has septic pumping appointments scheduled today in Barrington, Tiverton, Portsmouth, Middletown, Little Compton, and Jamestown, RI.  If you have a septic system, it is important to maintain your system, and the most necessary part of that maintenance is septic pumping.  A septic tank must be pumped regularly or it will not work correctly and will eventually fail.  The schedule of septic pump outs will vary depending on various factors, including the size of your septic tank and the water usage, but it is usually recommended that a tank is pumped every 3 – 5 years.  If you have a garbage disposal, pump outs should be annual.  If you are unsure whether you need septic pumping, or if you need to schedule septic pumping, please do contact our office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

summer gatherings

Summer Gatherings and Your Septic System

When planning for summer gatherings this summer, prevention can go a long way toward averting disasters with your septic system.  Parties, weddings, and any summer gathering can exert heavy use on your septic system.  Careful planning can help you prepare your septic system for the extra guests and extra load.

Here are some tips:

Arrange for a septic tank pumping prior to the event. Heavy volume of wastewater over a short period of time can over saturate the drain field and cause a mess in your yard or backup in to your home. Performing septic tank maintenance right before the event will create added capacity which will be able to handle more volume.

Check  your septic system and make sure it is functioning properly before the event.  Septic Preservation Services have technicians available for a maintenance check.   A problem may not be obvious during regular or modest use, but when you add an additional volume of wastewater over a short period of time, this can cause an already impaired system to fail.

The technician can also check your drain lines and make sure they are clear as well as the flow of water from your home to the tank.  Partially clogged drain lines can fail with excessive effluent running through them in a short amount of time.

School  your guests on what not to flush down the toilet.  A nearby garbage can  and properly placed signs on dos and don’ts may be all you  need.

Better yet, for large gatherings with many guests, such as weddings, graduation parties or family reunions, consider renting portable toilets and sinks.  This will take the load off your septic system and avoid costly and odorous disasters.  Units today are more attractive and reasonable and can take the worry out of your day.

Proper preventative maintenance  is all that is needed to keep a septic system functioning properly for many years to come. When the day is done,  the cost of a little preventive maintenance is well worth  the investment to avoid the potential for backups and septic system repairs or replacement.

Call Septic Preservation Services before your summer gathering.   They have all the equipment and professionals available to maintain and check your septic system and get it ready for your big day.  You can reach them at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com for more information.
