Septic Inspections For Customers in Maine

Septic Preservation Services provide septic inspections to property owners in Maine who have a septic system and wish to know the condition of their system.

Septic Services Provided Safely in Winter Conditions

Septic Preservation Services considers the safety of its technicians and customers to be of the utmost importance when we are carrying out septic services. This is why we hold regular safety meetings which always include a different safety topic that is relevant to the time of year or concerns that have been raised. This time we covered cold related safety precautions including risk factors, prevention measures and symptoms. OSHA states “Cold weather and increased wind speed (wind chill) cause heat to leave the body more quickly putting works at risk of cold stress. Anyone working in the cold may be at risk”. Clearly our technicians who are out in the weather providing septic services to our customers throughout the winter months in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine need to be aware of the symptoms of cold stress and how to take precautions to avoid them. Septic Preservation Services’ technicians work in most weather conditions so we want to know that we have done all that we can to ensure their safety and that of their customers. If you have any questions about the septic services that we provide please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Title 5 Inspections Taking Place In Massachusetts

Septic Preservation Services know that in winter when it snows or the weather turns icy sometimes the Title 5 Inspections that we have scheduled may not take place. Whether our inspector or customer can not get to the location of the inspection or the septic system is not accessible or for another reason there is no need for property owners to panic when they need the inspection for a property sale. Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs know that we live in a state where the weather can, and regularly does, effect plans. Therefore it is stated on the Mass Gov Website::

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.” For more information see:

We have Title 5 Inspections scheduled today in Northborough, Upton, Hudson, Holliston, Uxbridge, Sutton and Oxford MA. If for any reason the septic inspection can not take place we will always endeavour to reschedule the inspection as quickly as possible at a time that is convenient. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a septic inspection please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Did you Know Cold Weather Can Result In Septic Repairs Being Necessary?

Septic Preservation Services know that septic problems arise whatever the weather is doing and septic breakdowns or concerns sometimes require septic repairs. However cold weather brings its own set of problems for example:

  • If you have a ‘summer home’ or go away and leave your property for periods of time or just use it part of the week wastewater does not enter the system regularly enough and can freeze
  • If you drive over your septic leach field or drainfield you compact your soil. Compacted soil freezes more easily which can result in damage and possibly a failing septic system. If it is snowy and you drive over the snow on your system the snow will then provide less insulation for your septic system than snow which has been left untouched
  • If you don’t have enough vegetative cover over your septic system you have less insulation from the cold
  • Leaks in your plumbing release water into the septic which can then freeze
  • Poor pipe drainage can be caused by deteriorated pipes, if they are full or back filled with soil or poorly installed. Liquid will pool on one side and can then freeze

Essentially the cold can lead to your septic system freezing which leads to problems, possible repairs and even septic failures. Ironically snow falling is a good thing. Fresh snow is an excellent insulator. As it gets compacted it becomes less effective but it is better than a complete lack of snow cover, dry soil conditions or very cold air temperatures for an extended period of time which will all contribute to septic problems. Today we have appointments in Canton, Stoughton, Sharon, Hingham, Scituate and Hanover MA for septic repairs, some of which are caused by septic system owners not planning for the cold weather. If you have any questions about septic system or need to have a septic repair please do contact our Norton Office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Make Sure You Research Your Septic Services Like Your Black Friday Bargains

Septic Preservation Services hopes that everyone who is taking part in the Black Friday sales is coming home with a few bargains and no buyers remorse. Sometimes a ‘bargain’ on the shelf turns out to be a mistake if it is either not as cheap as it originally seemed or not the quality product that it first seemed after closer inspection. This can also be true for septic services and why it is always sensible to research the septic company that you choose to use. Septic Preservation Services has been working in the septic industry for over 25 years in this region and has an excellent reputation for providing quality septic services. We take pride in the work that we do and ensure that all of our technicians are trained with up to date methods and have state of the art equipment. Even with a seemingly simple task as septic pumping it is always a good idea to check the company that you choose to use because keeping your septic system clean and healthy is the best way to avoid costly repairs to your septic system, be it a septic tank, cesspool or some other style system. Septic Preservation Services helps to ensure your system remains as healthy as possible through periodic pumping and system checks. Our professionally trained staff is there to identify potential issues before they become big problems. To prevent problems, we ensure the solids in your system are cleared out and remain at a level consistent with a healthy system. We also check and clear filters, if one is present, to be sure it doesn’t let any solids into the soil absorption system. The health of the system can also be improved through addition of septic system bacteria products to your system by our professional staff. These bacteria help break down the organic solids in your tank which reduces buildup over time, reduces odors and keeps your pipes clean. If you need to have your septic tank pumped or if you have any questions about septic pumping, septic systems or the other septic services we provide please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Happy Thanksgiving

Septic Preservation Services wishes all their friends, customers and families Happy Thanksgiving!

Avoid Septic Repairs This Thanksgiving By Not Pouring Grease, Oil and Fat Down Your Sink

Septic Preservation Services are all looking forward to Thanksgiving and the great food and time with our family and friends that goes alongside this holiday. We know our customers are also looking forward to Thanksgiving and food preparation is well underway for Thanksgiving Meals. We would like to remind our customers that it is not a good idea to put any type of cooking oil, fat or grease down the sink where it can enter your septic system. Whilst a well maintained septic system can cope with small amounts of fat, oil and grease, such as natural body oils that go into your septic system when you shower, if you regularly introduce cooking fats, oils and grease into your septic system it could result in a septic system failure if left. Just remember when you are making your beautifully juicy turkey dinner do not pour the fat, oil or grease down your sink. We have been conducting septic repairs in Yarmouth, Falmouth, Mashpee, Barnstable, Chatham, Sandwich and Bourne MA that could have been easily avoided with a little knowledge and preventative measures. If you have a question about your septic system or you need to schedule a septic repair please contact us on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Repair To Replace Septic Tank Baffles In Foxboro MA

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a a property owner in Foxboro MA who needs a septic repair which entails having their septic tank baffles replaced. Broken septic tank baffles result from sulfuric acid eating away at concrete baffles or rust eating away at steel baffles. A septic tank has an inlet and outlet baffle. Usually these baffles are made from concrete and are part of the tank construction. The inlet baffle slows the flow of liquid entering the tank and decreases the turbulence allowing the solids to settle in the bottom of the tank. The outlet baffle helps to retain the solids and prevent them from leaving the tank and travelling to your absorption area. A tank without an outlet baffle can compromise the longevity of your septic system and cause premature failure. We are experienced working with all parts and types of septic system so can quickly and with minimum disruption replace our client’s damaged baffles. We also have other septic repair appointments scheduled today in Carver, Bridgewater, Taunton, Raynham and Norton MA. If you require a septic repair or have questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
