Septic Preservation Services helps many property owners who are selling their home or commercial property with septic inspections which are usually required if you have a septic system and are selling your property. We are also always willing to provide information and support to the new property owners who may not have had a septic system previously. There are definitely some dos’ and don’ts’ that apply when you own a septic system that are not generally too difficult to follow but if you don’t you might end up needing a septic repair to fix a problem that you have unknowingly created.
For example if you have just bought a new house a lot of people want to then start decorating and putting their own stamp on their new home. When you are cleaning up after decorating you must always remember to clean your brushes and paint trays in a bucket and not to dispose of that water down your drain and definitely don’t dispose of paint down your drain. We know that one of the benefits of latex paint is the ease of its cleanup with soap and water. This might cause you to think that it is okay to pour latex paint down the drain or your clean up water. This is not true. While your septic system can usually handle small amounts of latex paint, it should be avoided when possible. Septic systems use naturally occurring, living organisms to break down, digest and treat solid and liquid waste that is introduced into the septic tank. Toxic household chemicals can kill these organisms, resulting in a failure of your septic system. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that while common culprits include oil-based paints, solvents and cleaning products that are labeled as poison or hazardous, even latex paint cleanup should be minimized. Latex paints may contain toxic substances, including ethylene glycol or acetate, according to the National Drinking Water Clearinghouse. So be cautious when you clean your brushes because even small amounts of latex paint may be detrimental to your septic system. Your septic system is primarily designed to break down, digest and treat organic materials. The organisms that live in your septic system typically cannot digest the solid materials present in latex paint. These solids will settle to the bottom of your septic tank, where they can result in a thick, gray putty-like material.
Here is a list of septic system dos and dont’s:
Things you should do
DO conserve water whenever possible as a means of reducing the volume of wastewater that will need to be treated and disposed.
DO make repairs to any faucets or toilets that are leaking.
DO make sure that you are only discharging biodegradable wastes into your system.
DO restrict or avoid use of your garbage disposal.
DO take the time to ensure that any down spouts or other surface water is diverted away from your drainfield.
DO keep the cover to your septic tank accessible by installing covers and risers for easier inspections and pumping.
DO get your septic tank pumped regularly and have it checked for any cracks or leaks.
DO have an effluent filter installed to prevent debris from entering your drainfield.
DO add a laundry filter to your washing machine.
DO put kitchen trash into a compost or throw it into the garbage – not down your drains.
Things you should NOT do
DON’T flush products such as tampons, sanitary napkins, condoms, disposable diapers or wipes into your system.
DON’T empty oils or other types of kitchen grease down your drain.
DON’T dump any items that can disrupt the treatment process or contaminate groundwater, such as: paints, oils, thinners, pesticides, poisons or disinfectants.
DON’T build anything over your drainfield or dig in it for any reason.
DON’T plant any landscaping over your drainfield – except grass.
DON’T drive a vehicle over your drainfield or compact the soil in ANY way.
DON’T run purification back flush into the septic tank.

Septic Preservation Services wishes all of its customers Happy July 4th! As we celebrate Independence Day with our families and friends we know that no one wants to be concerned with septic problems. However septic problems do happen and if you have a septic system you need to know what may indicate a septic problem.
Some signs of a septic issue are:
- Muddy soil or pools of wastewater around your septic tank or soil absorption system.
- Very green or lush grass a vegetation on your leach field or near your septic tank.
- Sewage smells around your system or inside your house.
- Backups when you do laundry, take showers, or flush the toilet.
If you see these signs it is never a good idea to wait to have them looked at. A small septic problem with an easy and inexpensive repair can become a much larger, more expensive and more disruptive problem if left unaddressed. We have extensive experience locating and repairing septic septic problems. We have recently repaired septic systems in Berlin, Southborough, Upton, Marshfield and North Attleboro MA.

Septic Preservation Services would prefer to provide education to its customers, where possible, to prevent them from having to call us out for unnecessary septic repairs which could have been avoided if the property owner knew more about how to use their septic system. One of the main things that homeowners need to consider is what not to introduce to their septic system. Somethings seem clear – do not flush clothing, cat litter, toys, tools, diapers. These are all items that can clog your system which can possibly lead to a breakdown and will certainly result in your needing to have your system pumped more regularly than usual. However what may not seem as obvious are other items that should not be flushed either such as ‘flushable’ wipes, feminine hygiene products, fats, oils and grease. These are also items that can clog your system and fill it up too quickly. Also household cleaners, bleach, paint and some medications like acne lotions should not be introduced to your septic system because they can harm the biological activity that is essential for your septic system to operate correctly. We have septic repairs scheduled today, some of which could have been avoided following the above advice, in Fairhaven, Fall River, Westport, New Bedford, Seekonk and Swansea MA.

Septic Preservation Services have been working with Rhode Island property owners for over 20 years providing septic inspections, septic repairs, septic maintenance including septic pumping and septic cleaning and septic designs. With one third of the state’s households using some form of septic system for sewage disposal there are a lot of septic systems that require attention. If you have never had a property with a septic system the prospect can be daunting but with minimal maintenance and some guidelines a septic system will happily do its job with minimal interference. However if you are purchasing a property with a septic system you do want to ensure that the necessary maintenance has taken place so the system is working correctly because a failing system is a large environmental, economical and logistical problem. Therefore a Functional Inspection was devised which:
‘is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair.” For more information see http://www.dem.ri.gov/pubs/regs/regs/water/isdsbook.pdf
We carry out these inspections for customers who are buying or selling property, both residential and commercial, and need to have an inspection to highlight the condition of their septic system. Today we have functional inspections scheduled in North Smithfield, Cranston, Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield and Coventry RI. If you require a septic inspection in Rhode Island or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services can provide our customers with septic system repairs on all parts of their system. Today we are replacing a d-box for a customer in Rowley MA. A septic distribution box (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drain field or leach field absorption trenches and pipes. The D-box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it distributes evenly. We are also assisting our customer with locating their leach field for easement and have the appropriate permission from their neighbour to do so. This may seem unnecessary but if a homeowner has moved into a property but was not provided with property designs or as built drawings for their property they may be unaware of the location of their septic system components. If your septic system is working correctly there should be very little evidence of the location of a leach field. However we have extensive experience with septic systems so will be able to locate a leach field when a homeowner may not be able to do so. We also have additional septic system repairs scheduled today in Boxford, Groveland, Middleton, North Reading, Peabody and Carlisle MA.
