Septic Preservation Services knows that with the coming of Spring in New England that means rain. However we can still provide septic services to our customers even when it is wet out. Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Mattapoisett, Marion, Westport, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Acushnet MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. Our strong, durable risers and system covers make your septic system more accessible and also much safer and more attractive. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of an effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system can pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Preservation Services know that moving home at any time of the year is a stressful and time consuming business. If you are selling a home in addition to buying a home this just seems to double the workload. Therefore we try to make one small part of your move as painless as possible. If you are selling a home with a septic system in Massachusetts you are likely to need to have a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the Mass Gov Website:
“In order to ensure that septic systems (conventional septic systems, cesspools, and innovative/alternative systems) are protective of human health and the environment, MassDEP generally requires that systems be inspected when a property is sold.
When is an inspection required?
When a property is sold to new owners, or there otherwise is a transfer of title to new owners, with certain exceptions.
Title 5 does not require a system inspection if the transfer is of residential real property, and is between the following relationships:
(1) between current spouses;
(2) between parents and their children;
(3) between full siblings; and
(4) where the grantor transfers the real property to be held in a revocable or irrevocable trust, where at least one of the designated beneficiaries is of the first degree of relationship to the grantor”.
For more information see
We have extensive experience providing septic inspections in this region for property owners. We have excellent relationships with many realtors because they have worked with us before, in some instances on multiple occasions, and know that we provide through, reliable and prompt inspections to their clients. Many of our septic inspections come from referrals from realtors to their clients. Our Inspectors have recently been to properties in Uxbridge, Lynnfield, Norton, Sutton and Rochester MA to provide a Title 5 Inspection. If you are moving and require more information on Title 5 Inspections or have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
“a system shall be inspected at or within two years prior to the time of transfer of title to the facility served by the system. An inspection conducted up to three years before the time of transfer may be used if the inspection report is accompanied by system pumping records demonstrating that the system has been pumped at least once a year during that time. “
Because of this many of our Title 5 Inspections are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. We do also have septic inspections scheduled for people who are buying a property and want to have their own inspection done prior to purchase of the property. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Plymouth, Bourne, Sandwich, Carver, Marshfield, Middleborough and Rochester MA. Whatever the reason for your septic inspection do contact our office where we will be happy to schedule an appointment. You can contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Preservation Services hopes that everyone who took part in the Black Friday sales last week came home with a few bargains and no buyers remorse. Sometimes a ‘bargain’ on the shelf turns out to be a mistake if it is either not as cheap as it originally seemed or not the quality product that it first appeared on closer inspection. This can also be true for septic services and why it is always sensible to research the septic company that you choose to use. Septic Preservation Services has been working in the septic industry for over 25 years in this region and has an excellent reputation for providing quality septic services. We take pride in the work that we do and ensure that all of our technicians are trained with up to date methods and have state of the art equipment. Even with a seemingly simple task as septic pumping it is always a good idea to check the company that you choose to use because keeping your septic system clean and healthy, including its bacteria, 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. 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 is also improved through addition of septic system 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.
Today we are pumping a client’s septic tank in Rochester MA and also adding bacteria products. With proper maintenance these additives can ensure the success and health of your system. Today we also have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Marion MA. If you need to have your septic tank pumped or if you have any questions about septic pumping, septic systems or septic bacteria please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
Today we have septic repairs, including septic pump repairs and replacement appointments, in Westport, New Bedford, Marion, Mattapoisett, Freetown, Acushnet and Rochester MA.

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.”
