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
Septic Preservation Services’ Massachusetts licensed septic inspectors have been carrying out thorough and reliable septic system inspections in this region for over 25 years. As stated by the Mass Gov Website Title 5 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.
The majority of our inspections are for a property transfer, often scheduled by the seller but sometimes we provide an inspection for the buyer of a home with a septic system. Today we have septic system inspections scheduled in Attleboro, Berkley, Norton and Dighton MA and most are for property transfers but one is for a voluntary inspection. Mass Gov States that”
“A system owner may choose voluntarily to have an assessment of the condition of the system even if there is no requirement for an inspection. Results of these voluntary assessments are solely for the use of the owner, and do not need to be submitted to local Boards of Health or MassDEP.”
For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system
Property owners are likely to schedule a voluntary assessment of their septic system because the want to know its condition and see if maintenance or repairs are required. This is important because failing systems can:
- cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
- degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
- reduce the value of your property,
- be very expensive to repair,
- and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system
If you need to schedule a septic system inspection, for any reason, or if you have questions about septic inspections please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services give you a pinch and a punch for the first of the month! Although we are moving into a new month we are still in the grips of winter. With snow earlier this week and more forecast next week it is not time to break out the shorts and sandals just yet. If you are planning to move house and have a septic inspection scheduled you do not need to worry if it seems that the weather will make it impossible for us to carry out your Title 5 Septic Inspection. On the Mass Gov website it states that:
“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: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

Septic Preservation Services have been working with septic systems for over 25 years in this region. During this time we have built up excellent relationships with our customers, both those with private homes but also commercial properties. Businesses we work with include Cumberland Farms®, Dunkin Donuts®, Shell Oil®, Tedeshi’s®, Xtramart®, and McDonald’s® and we also work with condominium associations and residential communities.

Septic Preservation Services have a septic install continuing today in North Attleboro MA. It is very important when you install a septic system that it is done by experienced septic system installers who will ensure that is is done both correctly and will meet all state and local BOH requirements. We have been working in this region installing septic systems for over 25 years. We know how important it is to have your system working correctly and proper installation is key to this. If a septic system is properly sited, is working properly, and has been maintained regularly, it will effectively and efficiently remove disease-causing bacteria. Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems poses a significant threat to drinking water and human health. Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems is the most frequently reported cause of groundwater contamination. Therefore please use a reputable, experienced septic company such as Septic Preservation Services for your septic system installations. We have recently installed septic systems in Lakeville, Blackstone, Falmouth and Attleboro MA. If you need a septic system to be installed or have any questions about septic system installation please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com.
Septic Preservation Services are available to do the septic maintenance that everyone would rather took care of itself but unfortunately needs to be done and arranged.
Septic Pumping is an important part of your septic system maintenance. If you do not have this done your system will get clogged and full and when that happens it will cease to work efficiently and eventually fail. As you can probably imagine a failed septic system is not a pretty sight (or smell) and is often a very expensive thing to fix.
This can be avoided if you not only have your septic system pumped regularly but also use a through and reputable company to do so. The frequency that your septic system should be pumped varies on a variety of factors including the size of your system and the amount it is used, however, it is recommended that it is pumped every 3-5 years. 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. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Attleboro, Norton, Seekonk, Fall River, Freetown, Lakeville, and Acushnet, MA. If it has been over three years since your septic tank had a pump out, please contact us for an evaluation and to arrange septic pumping if necessary.
