Many Properties In Maine Are Serviced By Septic Systems

Septic Preservation Services know that many properties in Maine are serviced by septic systems because they are not on town sewer. As you would expect many of these properties are in remote areas of the state where the closest ‘town’ is not that close at all. However what is perhaps surprising are the number of properties that are not remotely located but are also on a septic system to process their waste. Septic systems provide simple, effective onsite wastewater treatment. They allow groundwater to be recharged onsite making more clean water available for use and treat the effluent naturally and allow water to seep into the ground, which keeps moisture on site to help plants grow and replenish the water supply. If properly installed and maintained individual septic systems offer Maine property owners many environmental benefits in this beautiful state. However you do need to ensure that your septic system is maintained and is working correctly. If you are unsure if you system is working as it should or if you are selling or buying a property with a septic system it is usually a good idea to have a septic inspection to advise you of the current condition of the system and if there are any concerns. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Richmond, Bowdoinham, Bowdoin, Topsham, Brunswick, Bath, Gardiner and Pittston Maine. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Inspections Scheduled In Maine

Septic Preservation Services know that for many homes in Maine that are remote and therefore not on town sewer their property wastewater purification necessarily requires a septic system. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. You system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. A failing septic system can create many unpleasant conditions such as:

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

Therefore if you are considering buying a property with a septic system, selling a property with a septic system or own a property with a septic system it is often a very good idea to have septic inspection so you can be confident in the current efficiency and condition of that system. Today we have septic inspections in Portland, Gorham, Freeport, Raymond, Pownal, Poland and Windham ME.

Title 5 Inspections For Condominiums In Addition to Private Homes and Commercial Buildings

Septic Preservation Services know that if you live in a condominium without town sewer you are unlikely to have anything to do with your septic system. This is because unless otherwise stated in your condominium associations governing documents:

“The condominium association is responsible for the inspection, maintenance and upgrade of the system or systems serving the units” as specified on the Mass Gov website. If goes further to say:

“Condominium systems should be inspected once every 3 years. Condominium developments with 4 or fewer units should also have their system inspected every 3 years, or within 2 years prior to the sale of one of the units.” for more information see –

https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

We provide Title 5 Inspections for condominium associations as well as private homes and commercial properties including restaurants and office buildings. Today we have Title 5 Inspections in Middleboro, Mansfield, Bourne, Carver, Marion and Rochester MA including one for a large condominium building of more than 5 units.

Title 5 Inspections For Property Owners Who Are Selling

Septic Preservation Services regularly provide Title 5 Septic Inspections to property owners who are selling and need to have their septic system inspected before a property transfer can take place. Today we have Title 5 inspections for customers in Bridgewater, Halifax, Hanover, Scituate, Marshfield and Canton MA. In Massachusetts a septic inspection is required in the following instances:

  • Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.
  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
  • Any change in the footprint of a building, 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

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

What is worth noting is that your inspection, once done, is valid for 2 years so ideally we would recommend that if you are selling a property with a septic system that you have the Title 5 inspection done as soon as possible. This way if it does unearth any problems you can have them fixed when it wont cause problematic delays. When you have a valid septic inspection which your system has passed that is just one more positive for your property for potential buyers.
