Septic Preservation Services knows that we are certainly in the grips of winter here in New England and snow and ice are always a possibility in December. That is not to say that we close when it gets cold out. We still provide our septic services to our customers even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Lakeville, Acushnet and Rehoboth MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Coupled with a regular maintenance program, such as Septic Preservation Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program, and professional pumping, your septic system could actually last indefinitely. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair or other septic services or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Acushnet MA. We are replacing their distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds it’s a box that moves, or distributes treated wastewater from your septic tank into your leach field or drain field. It must be level and installed correctly or your watewater will not distribute evenly across your leach field and this can lead to over saturation and clogging which is not desirable. The d-box we are replacing was damaged when heavy equipment was mistakenly parked on top of it which broke and moved it. We have found that many property owners with septic systems while they know they have a septic tank sometimes forget that the leachfield and d-box are also essential parts of their septic system and must also be maintained. Here are a few simple tips to help you look after all parts of your septic system:
- Minimize the use of the garbage disposal
- Do not put grease down your drains
- Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents
- Avoid excessively long showers
- Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks
- Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers
- Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years
- Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives
- Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system
- Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields
- Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers
- Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks
- Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture
- Do not drive vehicles over leach fields
We also have septic repairs scheduled in Norton, Stoughton, Canton and Taunton MA and some of these repairs could have been avoided by following the above advice.

Septic Preservation Services were contacted by a client with a property in Acushnet MA which they are planning to sell but it has failed its Title 5 Septic Inspection. The homeowner was not required to have their entire septic system replaced but have chosen to do so to better enable them to sell their property quickly and at a higher price. We are providing the initial septic design after consultation to determine the needs of our client and a PERC Test which has given us the information that we require, in addition to our extensive knowledge of the local and state septic regulations. With this information we are able to provide a septic system design for our clients which will exceed their septic requirements while meeting all septic standards set by the state and town and being environmentally conscious. We have recently provided other septic system designs to clients in Rochester, Sharon, Orange and Boxborough MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services are extremely busy this month with septic services for our customers who want to ensure that their septic systems are in good working order before going into the winter season when it can be much harder to fix septic problems if a repair involves digging into frozen ground. When you have your septic system regularly serviced you are making the educated choice to stay ahead of your septic system maintenance and putting your trust in us so we can find any septic repairs before they become a problem or even prevent them from happening at all with effective preventative maintenance. It is much more cost effective to maintain your septic system rather than to run it and not maintain it until you have a large a costly septic problem that requires a septic repair to fix it, at best. Today we have septic services scheduled in Fall River, Westport, Swansea, Acushnet, Freetown and Mattapoisett MA. If you would be interested in hearing more about our preventative maintenance program or if you wish to schedule a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services give you a pinch and a punch for the first of the month! It’s October already and Fall is in full swing with the leaves all turning and pumpkins and Halloween decorations starting to be put up. Although the season is changing we are still doing septic system installations because the ground is not yet totally frozen solid so we are still able to do the excavating and groundwork that is required. Today we have a septic system installation for a customer in Hingham MA. The owner has built a new home themselves but has chosen to have a professional come in to provide the septic design and installation for their new septic. We have an excellent reputation in this region and have been providing septic services for over 25 years so they are confident entrusting their septic system installation to us. We have recently installed other septic systems in Norton, Acushnet and Ware MA. If you require a septic system installation or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services provide septic system installations for many property owners for a variety of reasons. Today we have a septic installation for a customer in Acushnet who needs a larger septic system because they are putting an addition which includes 2 bedrooms onto their home. Their older home has a septic system that was put in many years ago and was not designed to handle the volume of Wastewater that maybe created with the addition of extra bedrooms. Of course it is not always the case that more bedrooms equates to more people using the system but that is the measure that is used to determine if a septic system should be upgraded or replaced. Your property must have a septic system that is equal to the number of bedrooms that you have to ensure that it can cope with the wastewater that will enter it. All Wastewater is enters your septic system so that does not just include toilets but that also showers, baths, dishwashers and washing machines. Older septic systems are sometimes overwhelmed even when the number of bedrooms has not increased if more than the expected people are living or just visiting the home or larger appliances are bought and used at the same time or repeatedly used on the same day. It is always wise to be aware of the volume of Wastewater that you are introducing to your septic system and if possible take measures such as taking shorter showers or doing your washing over an entire week rather than just on one day. However if you find that you are having septic issues that you can not solve with these solutions we are always happy to make suggestions or discuss a septic upgrade or replacement. We have recently installed new and upgraded septic systems for customers in Lynnfield, Boxford and Middleton MA. If you require a septic system upgrade or a septic installation or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services often provides septic inspections for customers whose property is not on town sewer. Septic Inspections are required:
- Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.
- When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
- Any change in the footprint of a building, 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.
Most regularly we carry out septic inspections for customers who are selling their homes which have a septic system that has not been tested in the last two years. Today in addition to providing the usual septic inspection we are also taking a well water sample for a customer in Acushnet, MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:
“There are a number of situations where the inspector will not be able to determine if the system passes or fails..A second set of situations involve septic tank and soil absorption systems that are too close to drinking water supplies, drinking water supply tributaries, public and private water supply wells. In these situations, the systems are deemed to be failed unless the Board of Health (in conjunction with the public water supplier in the case of public surface water supplies and their tributaries) determines that the systems are functioning in a manner that protects the public health and safety and the environment. Again, the system inspector can NOT make this evaluation. The information collected during the inspection and the guidance provided by the Department will be used by the Board of Health to make the determination. The system inspector can assist the Board of Health in the case of septic tanks and soil absorption systems located less than 100 feet from a private drinking water well by arranging to have the well tested for fecal coliform bacteria, ammonia, nitrogen, and nitrate nitrogen.”
