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

Septic Repairs To Correct Large and Small Septic Problems

Septic Preservation Services have the equipment for large and small septic repairs on residential and commercial septic systems which sometimes require excavation if the components are not easily accessible without. However if we do need to excavate to carry out a septic repair we will always ensure that we do the work safely and to all required standards. This includes contacting Dig Safe, a nonprofit organization that will notify your utility company of our plans. Your utility company (s) will then mark its underground facilities so we can be sure to safely conduct your septic repairs.  We have extensive experience investigating the cause of a septic problem and then repairing your system in the most cost effective and efficient way possible while ensuring our work is environmentally conscious. We know that most property owners will not know the cause of their septic problem so we will initially assess the condition of your septic system and we will then be able to present you with a range of options designed to correct any identified issues. These may include one or more of the following:

  • Replacement of damaged or missing baffle

Septic Inspection and Well Water Sample Taken in Acushnet MA

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.”

At Septic Preservation Services we have been providing septic inspections in the region for many years and we can provide the additional services such as taking a well water sample and taking it to be tested for fecal coliform bacteria, ammonia, nitrogen, and nitrate nitrogen.

Septic Repairs Can Sometimes Be Avoided Following Simple Steps

Septic Preservation Services provide advice to their customers to ensure that they use their septic systems correctly and are therefore less likely to have septic system problems. Very importantly to take good care of your septic systems you should know which items should never be flushed down the drain or toilet. This is because these things can overtax or destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system or clog pumps and pipes.

Take care not to flush the following:

  • hair combings, dental floss, disposable diapers, condoms, gauze bandages, sanitary napkins, tampons
  • coffee grounds, kitty litter, fat, grease, oil, cigarette butts, paper towels
  • chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater, such as paints, varnishes, thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides.

Unfortunately we have attended many septic repairs that could have been avoided if this advice had been followed. Today we have septic repairs scheduled in Rochester, Rehoboth, Berkley, Lakeville and Middleboro MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic System Inspections For Property Transfers And Voluntary Assessments

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

Providing Cesspool Services To Ensure That They Continue To Operate Correctly

Septic Preservation Services, in addition to property owners with conventional septic systems also work with many customers who have a cesspool instead. As stated on the Mass Gov website:

“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

Although cesspool are now out of date and there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not require cesspools to be replaced. They state that:

“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

We provide cesspool services to customers so that they can ensure that their system continues to operate correctly. Today we have cesspool services scheduled in Bolton, Berlin, Clinton, Sterling, Paxton, Spencer and East Brookfield MA. We do also provide cesspool replacement and have recently done so in Maynard, Dennis and Berkley MA. If you have a cesspool and require services or replacement or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Rejuvenation Allows Failed Septic Systems To Rapidly Rejuvenate Extending The Lifespan Of The Drainfield And The Septic System

Septic Preservation Services has an appointment to begin septic rejuvenation today for a client in Berkley MA. Septic Rejuvenation utilizes a patented technology to intermittently aerate the drainfield and surrounding soil. This method is used as an alternative to aerating the wastewater in the septic tank. It allows failed septic systems to rapidly rejuvenate, extending the lifespan of the drainfield and the septic system, while enhancing the treatment process.

Rejuvenation is currently being used by over 2,000 different septic service providers throughout the United States and Canada and has proven successful in a wide range of different climates and soil types. This technology has been applied in residential situations for both single and multi-family dwellings, as well as commercial situations, servicing hotels, laundrymats, grocery stores, food processing facilities, healthcare services, marinas, restaurants and more

Some of the benefits associated with Septic Rejuvenation include:

  • rapid restoration of proper septic system functions
  • lower costs for installation, operation and maintenance
  • enhanced removal of pathogens, nitrogen, phosphorus and B.O.D.
  • minimal damage/disruption to existing property landscape
  • long term, cost-effective solution

This technology has been studied over an extended period of time. Rejuvenation has been proven effective, tested by leading universities, leaders in the septic industry and third-party organizations. The process is simple, yet revolutionary. It is similar to composting and has the ability to rejuvenate septic systems that are severely failed within just a few days.

Other products attempt to rejuvenate septic systems by aerating the wastewater, which is fundamentally limited due to the maximum amount of oxygen that can be added into water. Our rejuvenation technology puts air directly into the clogged biomat and drainfield soils, getting directly to the root of the system failure. This process is much faster than water aeration methods and the treatment is much more thorough as a result.

Septic Preservation Services has applied septic rejuvenation technology to septic system projects that simply could not be rejuvenated using other types of pre-treatment devices, even systems that had been utilizing pre-treatment systems from installation. This process has been shown to increase the hydraulic capacity of the average septic system by as much as two to five times, boosting the efficiency of the affected system. As a result, in most cases as much as 25-75% of the drainfield can be taken out of service, allowed to rest and held in reserve for future use.

Regardless of your type of septic system, from chambers to stone and pipe, drip and everything in between, our rejuvenation technology can help get your system get back on track and running efficiently. The effectiveness of this method has been proven and documented by respected institutions, including Delaware Valley College, Massachusetts Test Center and the University of Rhode Island.
