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.”

Septic Preservation Services are experienced working with both commercial and residential customers in this region. This is important because the septic system for a busy restaurant will necessarily be different to one for a small seasonal holiday cottage. Both of these customers septic systems will work on the same basic principles however. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. The size and system itself will have variances however which will be specific to the requirements of our customer. These will vary depending on a variety of factors including the environment, the use of the system and budget of our client. Today we have a septic design meeting with a commercial customer whose property is located in Acushnet MA. We have recently provided septic system designs for residential and commercial customers in Marshfield, Berlin and East Bridgewater MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic system designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services were contacted by a customer in Acushnet who had noticed sewage smells and damp patches in their backyard so were concerned that they may have a septic problem. Further discussion revealed that they had noticed slow drains and much greener grass in their backyard for a while but had not realized that these are also signs of a septic problem. The reason for their leach field failure is biological clogging. This is the development of a biomat beneath the leachfield that eventually prevents the liquid or effluent from entering the underlying soil. This biomat is a combination of fine organic solids that have been carried out of the septic tank and the remnants of anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria originate in the human intestinal tract and enter the septic system with the waste products. 95% of all leach field failures are biological. We will repair their leach field by installing the White Knight system. The White Knight system creates an aerobic environment within the septic system and provides a large surface area for the growth of a specialized bacterial colony. As the bacteria multiply, they consume the organic material coming into the septic tank. At the same time, a great many of these bacteria are carried into the leach field and begin to consume the organic material that is clogging the soil. As a result, the underlying soil begins to regain its porosity, which in turn allows the effluent to pass through. After installation our client will have to discontinue use of a garbage disposal system, refrain from introducing any harsh chemicals into the septic system, use liquid detergents for washing dishes and clothes, refrain from flushing any and all non-organic products down the drains, refrain from the heavy use of bleach products and refrain from flushing paper towels or wipes down the drains. If they do their their leach field will remain operating correctly. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Fall River MA.

Septic Preservation Services knows that with the coming of Spring in New England that means rain. However we can still provide septic services to our customers even when it is wet out. Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Mattapoisett, Marion, Westport, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Acushnet 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. Our strong, durable risers and system covers make your septic system more accessible and also much safer and more attractive. 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 an 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. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system can pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services have been called to a customer’s property in Acushnet MA to repair their sewage grinder pump. This doesn’t sound especially appealing but has an important role in their septic system so needs to be operating correctly. A grinder pump is a wastewater conveyance device. Waste from water-using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines etc) flows through the home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the septic tank. We have extensive experience with septic systems and repairing different elements of them including d-boxes, septic pumps and drain fields. We also provide septic upgrades and improvements such as the addition of risers, covers and effluent filters. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much more safe and 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 repairs, upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. The addition of an effluent filter in the outlet tee of your septic tank can extend the life of your septic system. We are at a customer property in Attleboro MA installing a septic system cover today in addition to providing septic repairs in Rochester and Lakeville MA. If you require a septic repair or if you are interested in septic improvements please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
