When Is a Title 5 Septic Inspection Necessary?

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.”

Christmas and Your Septic System

Christmas

Christmas can be tough on your septic system.  There are the Christmas guests who come to stay.   Guests bring extra water usage. Laundry increases as well as showers and bathing.   The dishwasher is always running with all the extra dishes from the great, festive meals and goodies that Christmas brings.

Here are some tips to keep your septic system running smoothly and avoid overuse and costly repairs.

  • Be extra careful with water use during the winter months, shorter showers, smaller baths, etc.  Ask your guests to conserve water and keep showers to a minimum.
  • Fix any dripping taps and leaking toilet valves before winter.
  • Check  that no roof water or surface water (manhole covers should be higher than any puddles) enters the system.
  • Buy a set of draining rods before the holidays or put them on your Christmas ‘wish list’. They are invaluable to anyone with a private drainage system and can save you a fortune when drains are blocked.
  • Fill a plastic bottle with water and put it in the toilet tank.  Make sure it doesn’t interfere with the flushing mechanism.   This will reduce the volume of water per flush.
  • Have your septic tank pumped just before the visitors arrive. This gives the soakaway a breathing space to drain away completely.
  • Spread the washing out, using FULL loads, over a period of days.  Saving all the laundry for washing day is not a good plan.
  • Look at the labels. Only choose eco-friendly cleaning products. Avoid antibacterial soap and detergents.  It can kill the good bacteria in your system.
  • Try  hand washing  the greasy items  in a bowl and throwing the water on the garden. It won’t harm your plants.
  • Use air fresheners in the bathroom.
  • If you do get a fat blockage in the drains, DO NOT use harsh drain cleaning products as they are harmful to your septic tank.   Or better yet, use homemade recipes made from natural ingredients.   Try using draining rods instead or call in the professionals at All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services.
  • Prevention is the key to having a great holiday season.  Be prepared and you can spend the holidays enjoying your family and friends and the magic of the season.  Let Septic Preservation Services take the worry out of your holidays.
