Cesspool Services Ensure That Your Cesspool Continues To Operate Correctly

Septic Preservation Services work with many customers that don’t have conventional septic systems on their property but instead have a cesspool. 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 cesspools are now not installed because there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not always 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).”

For more information see the Mass Gov Website

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 Bellingham, Blackstone, Franklin, Sharon, Foxboro and Mansfield MA. We do also provide cesspool replacements and have recently done so recently in Rowley and Hanson MA. If you require a cesspool service or are interested in a cesspool replacement or if you have any questions about cesspools or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Title 5 Septic Inspection In Sharon For First Time Home Seller

Septic Preservation Services are providing a Title 5 Septic Inspection today to a customer in Sharon MA. This homeowner is a first time seller and needs to arrange for a septic inspection to be done on their septic system before Title transfer can take place. They have sensibly chosen to have their inspection done as soon as they decided that they wanted to sell their home. This means that the inspection will be completed without causing any delay to their future sale. Also if it does happen to highlight any problems they can have them fixed and not have to worry about this causing delays and potential loss of sales. Once they have had their inspection carried out and it passes that is just one more positive for the home that their realtor can use to sell it for a good price. They do not need to be concerned about the inspection expiring because it will be valid for 2 years as stated on the Mas Gov Website. We also have other Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments scheduled today in Franklin, Foxboro, Bellingham, Blackstone and Stoughton MA. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about inspections or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Be Aware Of The Signs That Your System Needs Septic Pumping

Septic Preservation Services know that if you have a septic system regular maintenance is essential for it to keep working correctly. Fortunately septic pumping which is the most important maintenance for a septic system is not usually required annually (unless you have a garbage disposal). It is recommended that you have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years so if it has been a few years since you have had yours done or you can’t remember when it was done last now may be a good time to consider having your system pumped or call us so we can help you determine what would be your best course of action. Signs that your septic system is due for a pump out can include:

  • Pooling water. If it hasn’t recently rained but you are still seeing pools of liquid on your leach field this could be a sign that your system is full. When your tank reaches capacity, solid waste can clog the drain field piping system and force liquid to the surface
  • Slow drains or slow flushing toilets are an indicator that your system is reaching capacity.
  • Sewage Odors or smells in your home or yard
  • An overly healthy lawn. If your grass is much greener or lusher that than the rest of your yard over the leach field you may have a tank that needs pumping
  • Septic backup

Today we are providing septic pumping for customers in Bellingham, Blackstone, Uxbridge, Upton, Holliston, Grafton and Sutton MA. If you wish to schedule septic pumping or if you are unsure whether your system needs a pump out please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we will be happy to help you.

Septic System Services On Systems Including Singular, FAST and Sand Filter

Septic Preservation Services has been working in this region on septic systems for over 20 years. During this time we have worked with many different types of septic system and therefore gained knowledge and experience working on systems such as Singulair, FAST, Sand Filter, Jet System, Fuji Clean and many others. All septic systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most 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. Like anything in your home your septic system must be maintained to ensure it keeps working correctly. If you do not want the worry of looking after your system or have a business and a septic failure would mean lost revenue it may be worth considering a septic service plan. We service many types of septic systems for our customers on quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their system and the amount of use it gets. Today we have septic services including Singulair Services and FAST Services scheduled in Bellingham, Blackstone, Wrentham, Franklin, Oxford and Upton MA. If you would be interested in a septic service or you have questions about your septic system or septic services specifically please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator Is An Alternative To Leach Field Replacement

Septic Preservation Services has been contacted by a customer in North Attleboro MA because they are concerned that their septic system is failing. Your system is failing if one or more of the following conditions exists:

  • All of the drains from the house are slow
  • There is a persistent wet area over the leach field
  • Sewage is surfacing in the area of the septic tank or distribution box
  • There is sewage seeping through the foundation
  • The liquid level in the leach field is at the top of the crushed rock layer, the chambers or other underground structures
  • The vegetation over the leach field is greener and more lush than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • There is sewage odor in the yard at times or constantly
  • There is flow back from the leach field when the septic tank is pumped
  • The septic tank needs to be pumped frequently
  • The septic tank discharge baffle is damaged or missing
  • Rain water seems to take longer to disappear over the leach field than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • Well water is contaminated

Our client has noticed sewage smells in their yard and persistent wet areas over their leach field. Their system is a candidate for the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator, an economical, environmentally sound and permanent alternative to leach field replacement. 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 is capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator can be used to:

  • Protect drain fields from ever biologically failing
  • Improve the function of marginally operating drain fields
  • Restore the function of totally failed drain fields
  • Improve the quality of effluent returning to the soil and ground water
  • Reduce the amount of nitrate moving into the environment
  • Reduce the size of a leach field required for new building construction
  • Expand the size of existing structures without expanding the leach field

The White Knight™ advantage 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 recently installed the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in properties in Norton, Attleboro, Marshfield and Blackstone MA. If you suspect that your septic system may be failing or if you have any questions about the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Title 5 Inspections For Private Homes and a Condominium

Septic Preservation Services provide Title 5 Septic Inspections to many customers in Massachusetts and most are either selling a property or buying a property. This is because a Title 5 Septic Inspection has to take place within 2 years before a sale. However there are other times that a Title 5 Septic Inspection is required. We are providing Title 5 Septic Inspections today in Bellingham, Blackstone, Wrentham, Uxbridge, Grafton and Holliston MA for private properties and one condominium. As specified on the Mas Gov website:

“Condominiums with 5 or more units – all systems must be inspected every 3 years.
Condominiums with fewer units must either inspect all systems every 3 years, or the system serving the unit being transferred must be inspected within 2 years prior to transfer.”

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

This condominium building has over 5 units so we are conducting the Title 5 Inspection which needs to be carried out because its last inspection was over 3 years ago.

A Leach Field Will Not Operate Correctly If A Driveway Or Parking Lot Is Put On Top Of It

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a customer in North Attleboro MA who has a leach field problem. Their home’s leach field has had a driveway installed that covers their leach field. As stated by the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Impervious areas such as driveways or parking lots restrict air passing through the soils. In addition, the weight of the cars can compact the soil and may break distribution pipes. Lack of oxygen prevents the degradation of the septic tank effluent in the soil, and compaction reduces flow, making the system likely to clog and fail. Soil absorption systems which are placed under driveways are required, by 310 CMR 15.240 (7), to be vented to the atmosphere. Additional standards apply to system components in areas where automobile or other heavy equipment is anticipated.”

Their leach field does not have the venting required and compacting has resulted in the distribution pipes breaking when large heavy vehicles were mistakenly parked on the driveway. Septic Preservation Services have the excavation equipment necessary for this septic repair and have the qualified operators that ensure that the repair is done correctly and with as little disruption as possible. We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Wrentham, Bellingham, Blackstone and Franklin MA. If you require a septic repair or have any questions please do contact our Norton office on on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
