Leach Field Repair With White Knight System

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. If you have concerns that your septic system is not working correctly or wish to schedule a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Increases In Flow Of Septic System Requires A Septic Inspection

Septic Preservation Services have many years experience working with the septic industry in this region and because of this we are contacted to do septic inspections for property owners who are selling their home or business property with a septic system and therefore require an inspection. Today we have inspections scheduled for customers in Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Marion and New Bedford for property sales. We also have a septic inspection today for a property in Acushnet MA for another reason. As required by Title 5 in Massachusetts:

“Changes of Use and Increases in Flow

These situations require a system inspection only if the modification requires a building permit or occupancy permit. For example:

  • adding a bedroom to a house
  • adding seats to a restaurant
  • changing the type of business operating at a commercial location.

Check with your Building Department or Board of Health to find out if your modification meets these requirements.

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. Check with your local Board of Health” – Mass Gov. For more information see https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

In this instance our client has added bedrooms to their property and therefore require a septic inspection.

If you need a septic inspection, for any reason, or you are unsure about septic inspections, Title 5 or septic systems please do contact our Norton office where we will be happy to answer any questions you may have or schedule an appointment if necessary on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Pros and Cons of Cesspools

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services has a septic installation starting today in North Attleboro, MA.  We were contacted by a homeowner who has a cesspool and wants to replace their cesspool and upgrade to a septic system.  People often have their cesspool upgraded because it is failing.  However, it is often wise to consider replacing a cesspool because cesspools are considered substandard systems.  They don’t treat wastewater, they merely dispose of it.  Cesspools concentrate the wastewater in one location, often deep within the ground and in direct contact with groundwater, causing groundwater contamination.  This groundwater flows into drinking water wells and surface waters contributing to adverse public health and environmental impacts.  In contrast, conventional septic systems place the wastewater well above the level of soils saturated by groundwater and they disperse this effluent over a large area, which results in substantial removal of pathogens and other pollutants.  Cesspools which serve only as “overflow” pits from septic tanks are much more efficient than the older systems because they receive much less solid material. However, where there is no septic tank to hold the solids, the cesspool will require much more maintenance.  Over time, when the drainage area around the leaching pool becomes saturated, additional pools may have to be dug to handle the volume. Cesspools generally have larger maintenance costs also in addition to not treating waste as efficiently.  We have extensive experience with septic system installation and have recently completed septic installations in Norton, Fairhaven, Franklin and Lakeville, MA.  If you have questions about septic system installations or cesspool replacement please do contact our office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
