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.

What To Expect From A Title 5 Septic Inspection

Septic Preservation Services know that if you are selling a property for the first time that has a septic system it is unlikely that you will ever have had to arrange a Title 5 Septic Inspection before, like our customer today in Sharon MA. This is because it is usually the seller’s responsibility to have one carried out and when you bought the property you would have received the report but other than checking that your new property’s septic system passed most owners do not look further into the report. Therefore when it comes to having a Title 5 Inspection what it entails is sometimes a bit of a mystery. At Septic Preservation Services we are always happy to provide our customers with information whether it is about the workings of their septic system or the details of a Title 5 Septic Inspection. Here is what you can expect from an official Title 5 Inspection – the inspector will:

  • conduct an interview with the property owner
  • research the paperwork for your property at your city’s Board of Health Department
  • survey the general size of the building or list a summary of the number of bedrooms
  • inspects the connection from the house/building to the system
  • inspects the inlet/outlet of the septic tank
  • examines the integrity of the tank
  • measures the liquid/contents of the tank
  • examines the integrity of the distribution box
  • measures the liquid/contents of the distribution box
  • checks the soil absorption system (SAS) condition
  • checks the relation of the system’s water table to the SAS
  • provides an official 17-page document to the local approving authority and the owner, including all findings and a detailed sketch of the system

We have a Title 5 Septic Inspection scheduled for a first time home seller today in Sharon and we will endeavor to make the process as clear and easy as possible. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about Title 5 Inspections or septic systems please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://septicpreservation.com/septic-inspection/

Septic Services Can Take The Worry From Septic System Maintenance

Septic Preservation Services know that many people who own a vehicle will schedule a service for their car when the service indicators comes on or carry out their car maintenance themselves. As car owners we accept that maintaining our car is going to cost money but we use our vehicles daily so they need to be well maintained. The same is true for your septic system. There aren’t many properties that do not see their septic systems used daily. However a septic system is not the same as your car and many property owners turn to professionals, like Septic Preservation Services, to take care of their septic services. We have commercial and residential customers who rely upon us to take care of their septic systems so they do not need to worry about them. This is especially true for commercial customers who lose revenue when their septic system is not working. We will schedule septic services for our customers on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the usage it gets. For example a busy restaurant that is open year round will need a service more frequently than a cafe that is only open in the summer ‘season’. Today we have septic services scheduled in Marion, Bourne, Carver, Sandwich, Mashpee, Falmouth and Barnstable MA. If you would be interested in scheduling a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems or our septic services please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Most of the inspections that we carry out for property owners are for people who are selling their property and need their septic to be inspected before Title transfer can take place. However what some people do not realize is that we can also carry out a septic assessment. A Property owner can hire a licensed inspector to perform Confidential Voluntary Septic Assessment of their septic system. These assessments are completed just as they would be according to the Title 5 Inspections required by the State of Massachusetts, but the findings are NOT reported to any other person, municipality or office outside of the homeowner. Once the assessment is complete, the homeowner will receive a thorough report along with an assessment of the findings and some recommendations on how to properly maintain or repair their septic system, if necessary. The recommendations provided by Septic Preservation Services are designed to increase longevity and prevent future issues, such as property damage, high cost repairs or system replacement.

In addition to the above septic inspections we also have a voluntary septic assessment scheduled for a customer today in Sharon MA.

If you require a septic inspection or voluntary septic system assessment please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we will be happy to help you.
