Title 5 Inspections Provided To Customers in Norton and Surrounding Towns

pump chamberSeptic Preservation Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Norton, Mansfield, Attleboro and Wrentham MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see the Mass Gov Website.

Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or title 5 inspections please do contact us on at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

You May Need Septic Pumping Following A Busy Holiday Season

Septic Preservation Services know that most people are all done with the holidays and are cleaning up, putting away and taking down all of their holiday items. What many people do not think of is that their septic system may need some maintenance after the holidays too. Having your septic system pumped regularly is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system treats effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and your system will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. If you have had a lot of extra guests using your home over the holiday period you may be due for septic pumping earlier than expected. We are providing septic pumping to customers today in North Smithfield, Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield and Burrillville RI. So if you are due for a septic pumping or if you are unsure if you need one please do contact us at our office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule an appointment if necessary on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Our Septic Preventative Maintenance Program Makes Septic System Ownership Easy

Septic Preservation Services know that many people when they hear the word ‘sewer’ either think of old, large, dank, dark and smelly sewer systems under some city in Europe or adolescent turtles with unlikely names fighting bad guys through the sewer tunnel system. Neither image is particularly accurate for sewer systems in Massachusetts which service many homes across the state. However homes and properties that are not on the town sewer system still need to process their wastewater and the solution is an individual septic system. If you buy a property with a septic system and have never had one before this can be a daunting prospect. However Septic Preservation Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program is designed to give homeowners peace of mind because you then know that your system is being properly checked, maintained and monitored and owning a septic system is no longer the concern that it may have been. This means that you do not have to worry about unexpected repairs or maintenance because we will take care of your septic system so septic repairs are much less likely to be necessary and problems will be located before they become a big concern. We schedule septic services for our customers on maintenance contracts on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the use that it gets. Today we have septic service appointments in Norton, Berkley, Dighton, East Bridgewater and Taunton MA. If you would be interested in our preventative maintenance program or if you have questions about septic services please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic System Maintenance Is Necessary To Avoid Repairs and Failures

Septic Preservation Services know that even though it is only January 2nd it suddenly feels like the holidays were a long time ago and we are all getting back into the swing of things. This means that property maintenance that you have perhaps been putting off over the holiday period should now be looked at and not postponed anymore. Septic System Maintenance is really not something that should be put off for too long because if left it can lead to large and expensive repair being necessary or even a septic failure. The most important septic system maintenance is septic pumping. The average recommended pumping frequency is between 3 and 5 years, depending on the tank size and number of occupants. The longer you wait between pumping the greater the likelihood that you may have a septic problem and you will shorten the lifespan of your system and eventually it will fail. As wastewater enters your septic tank from your property, the solid matter will be held in the tank and break down into “sludge” over time, while the liquids continue on to the absorption area (leach field / drain field). Sludge is never meant to exit your septic tank, so it must be pumped out on a regular basis — you don’t want the sludge to accumulate to the point where it starts exiting the tank towards the absorption area or backing up into your property.

Once this happens pumping will not rectify the issue and you will be looking at additional costs to repair your system and if left too long you may have to replace your septic system or at least parts of it which is both expensive and disruptive. We have septic pumping scheduled today for customers who are choosing to keep on top of their septic system maintenance in Rowley, Boxford, Groveland, Peabody, Lynnfield and North Reading MA. If you require septic pumping or if you are not sure if it is time or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

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

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.
