Septic Pumping Should Be Done Every 3 – 5 Years

septic system cleaning and pumpingSeptic Preservation Services provide perhaps the most important septic system maintenance service – septic pumping. Septic Systems will always need to be pumped but the frequency can vary depending on a variety of factors including the size of your septic system and the number of people that are using it. However as a general guide you should have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years or annually if you have a garbage disposal. This is because normally, properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three to five years’ safe accumulation of sludge. When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. As the sludge level increases, more solid wastes escape into the soil absorption system (SAS) or leach field/ drain field. If the SAS becomes so clogged that it cannot absorb liquid at the rate at which it enters the tank, the plumbing will “back up” or unsanitary wastewater will bubble to the surface. You really don’t want to wait until you have sewage ‘bubbling’ to the surface in your yard or backing up into your house so it is a good idea to keep up with your septic pumping schedule. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Plymouth, Carver, Halifax, Rochester, Sandwich and Bourne MA. If you need to schedule a septic pump out or if you have questions about pumping or your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Cleaning in Addition To Septic Pumping Helps Your Septic System Work Correctly

Septic Preservation Services understand that part of any good septic system preventative maintenance program is to ensure that it is properly cleaned and pumped on a regular basis However it is also important to know the facts about septic cleaning and pumping to avoid making costly mistakes. Inside your septic tank solid waste matter sinks to the bottom and grease and oils float to the top. Treated liquid waste flows through pipes into a drain field or leach field. If too much solid waste accumulates it clogs the drain pipes, prevents liquids from escaping, and leads to sewage backups into your home and a health hazard because waste is not treated before exiting your septic system. A properly maintained septic system should only have a septic pump out every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. Septic pumping will ensure that your septic system does not ‘fill up’ with waste. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. It is important to understand that septic pumping does not always mean that your system will also be cleaned and leaving solid buildup in the septic tank or not having your leach field pipes jetted can mean that even if your system is pumped blockages can still occur which can result in septic system failures and potentially unpleasant, expensive and harmful repercussions. Today we have septic cleaning appointments in Berlin, Clinton, Bolton, Marlborough, Sterling and Grafton MA.

Rhode Island Septic Inspections

Septic Preservation Services has been working in the septic industry in Rhode Island for many years and can provide many septic services including septic pumping, septic repairs, septic design, septic cleaning and perhaps most often septic inspections. We provide inspections most regularly for people who are selling a home and need an inspection to provide buyers with information pertaining to their septic system. This is called a septic functional inspection. 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. Other inspections that we carryout include the periodic ISDS (Individual Sewage Disposal System) Inspections that some Rhode Island towns require. The town will notify you, usually by mail, that it’s time for an inspection. We also provide inspections for homeowners who want to know the condition of their septic system so they can be sure that it is working correctly and catch any issues before they become large septic problems or breakdowns. 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. We have septic inspections scheduled today in Barrington, Tiverton, Little Compton, Middletown and Portsmouth Rhode Island. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason or if you require any other septic services or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Be Aware Of Your Septic System’s Capacity And Get A Septic Pumping When Necessary

Septic Preservation Services has septic pumping scheduled in Barnstable, Eastham, Dennis, Brewster, Orleans and Mashpee MA. It is important to have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years but this can vary dramatically depending on the size of your septic system and the water usage. We have one customer who has a small property on Cape Cod, with a correspondingly small septic system, which gets much heavier usage during the summer, especially when they host large family gatherings. These events puts a huge strain on their septic system. They have found that it is more cost effective to hire portable toilets for their events than to have their septic system pumped much more regularly due to the excessive use it gets periodically and risk failures due to the large increase in usage it gets at these times. If you wish to schedule septic pumping or if you have any questions regarding pump outs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Septic Cleaning Will Improve The Efficiency Of Your Septic System And Keep It Running Smoothly

Septic Preservation Services know that when you are thinking about your septic system (if you are ever thinking about your septic system) one word that is unlikely to be the first or even the tenth is ‘clean’. However Septic Preservation Services can provide septic cleaning for your septic system and for a very good reason. If you have a septic system it must be pumped regularly, generally every 2-5 years. There is no getting around it, if a septic system is used it will eventually fill up and must be pumped to work correctly. However when you have your septic system pumped you are not necessarily having it ‘cleaned’ and a thorough septic cleaning can make a big difference to your system. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Quick service pumping companies may seem cheaper but will actually cost property owners down the road because they are not cleaning while they pump.

Functional Inspections To Provide Septic System Information When Property Is Sold

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.

Be Aware Of The Signs That Your System Needs Septic Pumping

Septic Preservation Services know that if you have a septic system regular maintenance is essential for it to keep working correctly. Fortunately septic pumping which is the most important maintenance for a septic system is not usually required annually (unless you have a garbage disposal). It is recommended that you have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years so if it has been a few years since you have had yours done or you can’t remember when it was done last now may be a good time to consider having your system pumped or call us so we can help you determine what would be your best course of action. Signs that your septic system is due for a pump out can include:

  • Pooling water. If it hasn’t recently rained but you are still seeing pools of liquid on your leach field this could be a sign that your system is full. When your tank reaches capacity, solid waste can clog the drain field piping system and force liquid to the surface
  • Slow drains or slow flushing toilets are an indicator that your system is reaching capacity.
  • Sewage Odors or smells in your home or yard
  • An overly healthy lawn. If your grass is much greener or lusher that than the rest of your yard over the leach field you may have a tank that needs pumping
  • Septic backup

Today we are providing septic pumping for customers in Bellingham, Blackstone, Uxbridge, Upton, Holliston, Grafton and Sutton MA.
