Title 5 Inspections Provided To Customers in Norton and Surrounding Towns

pump chamberSeptic Preservation Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Norton, Mansfield, Attleboro and Wrentham MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see the Mass Gov Website.

Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or title 5 inspections please do contact us on at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Alarm installed in Hingham MA

Septic Preservation Services are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Hingham, MA today. Many modern and alternative septic systems have alarms to notify the homeowner of a potential problem. Though it can be annoying when the system alarms and you are forced to think about your septic system, this could prevent the system from backing up into your house. A high water alarm is caused by either too much water going into the tank or not enough going out. A high water alarm if not properly addressed will cause septic waste to ultimately back up into your house, though that may occur after your drainfield is fully damaged. An alarm could also be to notify you that your septic pump has failed. The basic design of a septic tank will only work if the sludge is not too thick on the bottom and the grease and scum is not too thick on top, and if the flow to the tank is not excessive. If there is too much waste on the bottom of the tank or too much water flowing to the tank, there will not be enough time for the solids and liquids to settle out before the tank starts releasing water containing large amounts of fecal waste to the drain field. The fecal waste will over time clog the drainfield. Also, if there is too much grease and scum floating on top, the scum will be released to the drainfield. A septic system is not a trash can. Don’t put dental floss, feminine hygiene products, condoms, diapers, cotton swabs, cigarette butts, coffee grounds, cat litter, paper towels, latex paint, pesticides, or other hazardous chemicals into your system because they can end up clogging the filter and/or lines if carried from the tank. Therefore, although it can be annoying, a septic alarm is essential to give you advance warning that you have a septic problem. Our customer has wisely chosen to install a septic alarm to ensure that they have advance warning of a septic problem. We have provided other septic system improvements including the addition of risers and covers to customers in Norton, Attleboro, Lakeville and Bridgewater recently. If you would be interested in having a septic alarm installed, if you have a septic alarm going off or would be interested in other septic system improvements please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Inspections for Property Owners Who Are Selling

Septic Preservation Services in addition to servicing and repairing septic systems also has licensed septic inspectors who can provide septic inspections and septic assessments when requested. The majority of our septic system inspections are carried out because a property owner is selling their property and it has not had an inspection within the last 2 years so it is required to have one. Our inspector will use use the MassDEP-approved inspection form and submit it within 30 days of the inspection. For most systems, the Inspector is responsible for submitting the inspection report directly to the Board of Health. The buyer must also receive a copy from the seller of the property. In some cases, inspection reports must be submitted to authorities other than the Board of Health. For more information see Mass Gov website

We will always advise people who are selling a property with a septic system to have their septic inspection done early. This is because Inspections in connection with a property sale generally are good for 2 years (If a system is pumped annually and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for 3 years). Therefore you can have this done well before you have a buyer and it will consequently be completed and not cause delays later on in your sale. It will also be a selling point for your realtor when advertising the property because the prospective buyers know that the system has passed its septic system inspection. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Sharon, Wrentham, North Attleboro, Seekonk and Attleboro MA. If you require a septic inspection 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

D-Box replacement in Attleboro, MA

Septic Preservation Services have a D-Box replacement today in Attleboro MA. We have extensive experience working with all parts of a septic system and know that all parts need to be working correctly to enable your system to do its job. Most septic systems are based on the same principles. 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. Your system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. Our client’s septic Distribution Box (D-Box) is no longer working so we are replacing it. We can locate and remove the old box and install the new d-box with minimum disruption to our client. We also have additional septic repairs today in Berkley, Norton, Dighton, Middleboro and Raynham MA. If you have a septic system concern or you need us to investigate a septic problem or you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Leach Field Repair with the Installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a property owner in Attleboro MA who has a leach field problem which has been caused by it becoming clogged with the excessive amount of organic matter that has been passed to it from their septic tank. We will repair their leach field without needing to replace it with the installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator.

In nature, oxygen-using (aerobic) bacteria in the soil consume non-living organic material. This is the process nature uses to “recycle” wastes. We install the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in the septic tank to create an oxygen rich environment and cultivate an extensive colony of these same soil bacteria.

The result is nearly complete consumption of the organic materials entering the septic tank. At the same time, the bacteria are carried into the leach field where they consume the organic material that has accumulated in the underlying soil. The leach field regains and/or maintains its capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator includes:

  • An installation costs thousands of dollars less than that of a replacement leach field
  • Minimal disruption to existing landscape
  • Protection of the environment
  • Significantly longer tank pumping interval
  • Conservation of natural resources
  • 100% component and limited lifetime performance warranty

We have other septic repairs also scheduled today in Norton, Mansfield, Stoughton, Sharon, Canton and Foxboro MA.

If you want to have a White Knight Septic Installation, need a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Pumping Is Essential Septic System Maintenance

Septic Preservation Services not only installs septic systems and repairs septic systems but also provides essential septic system maintenance – perhaps most importantly septic pumping. Septic Systems must be pumped periodically to remain operating correctly. Even if your system seems to be working correctly you do not want to wait it until it shows evidence of septic problems before you choose to pump your system. By then you could have a large septic problem which may require an expensive septic repair whereas staying on top of your septic pumping schedule will ensure that you are doing the most important part of maintaining your septic system. Septic systems do not need to be pumped that often, if fact if you pump too frequently you can harm your septic system by removing the beneficial bacteria that is required to process your waste. A properly maintained septic system should only be pumped every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. You only need to have your system pumped annually if you have a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping appointments in Norton, Attleboro, Rehoboth, Seekonk and Swansea MA. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services call at our Norton office on 877 378 4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.
